Storytelling is a great family activity that encourages language development and introduces new vocabulary. Make up stories together with your child including characters, conflict, and a happy ending. Sit down to look at family photographs, talking about who is in the photograph, what they were doing, and where they were. Ask your child to retell stories and set aside time for regular reading. You can even narrate the day with your child as it unfolds, e.g. “Now we’re going outside to water the flowers. When we finish, we’ll prepare the table for lunch.”
