A tip for parents of young children who talk in sentences

Expand your child’s vocabulary by introducing a new word to a daily routine.

New words are learned during everyday activities. For example, if you want to help your child learn the word “lukewarm”, you can say, “The bath water is lukewarm – it’s not too hot, just a little warm.” Repeat the word every time you perform that routine. Then plan how to use the word in other situations. For example, you could use lukewarm in relation to tea or coffee or even soup! Help your child understand more about the word when you use it. For example, “I like my tea to be very hot. Lukewarm tea isn’t hot enough and it doesn’t taste good.”
