Introducing new words into your preschooler’s vocabulary doesn’t have to feel like a school lesson – it can be fun! Help your little one expand their brains by exposing them to new words each day!
Have a word of the day
Lots of resources exist online that list words that preschoolers should know. Go through this list by focusing on one word each day. Bring it up while your little one is eating breakfast and explain to them what the word means. Bring the word up later in the day to help them retain the information.
Create a labeling game
Grab a sticky-notepad and go around the house with your preschooler and label things. Not everything found in a home is easy for a preschooler to understand or say, but words like door, food, chair, and many more would be easily recognizable by your little one! Leave the sticky notes up for a while and go over them often with your child.
Emphasize new words throughout the day!
Throughout the day, your preschooler has the opportunity to learn so many new words. When you wake them up in the morning, they can learn the words pillow, blanket, and bed. When you’re cooking breakfast they can learn the words stove, egg, and milk. Every part of their daily life can be an opportunity to introduce new words into their vocabulary!
Set your little one up for success later in life by teaching them new words every chance you get! Knowledge is power and your preschooler has limitless potential!
