My children vs vocabulary difficulties

Postby widlowy » Tue Aug 12, 2014 7:36 am

My children usually express their frustration and difficulties in a general way, with statements like "I hate reading!" or "This is stupid!"... et cetera, et cetera...

What can we do to encourage our children? From my perspective:
- engage your child in conversations every day. If possible, include new and interesting words in your conversation
- help build word knowledge by classifying and grouping objects or pictures while naming them
- encourage your child to read on his own. The more children read, the more words they encounter and learn

Any other tips? :-)
