How to Help Your Child Build Their Vocabulary

Helping your child expand their vocabulary is important for their academic success. If you want to help your child expand their vocabulary, there are a number of vocabulary building activities you can create right at home. The Tutoring Center in Tampa Bay has some suggestions to help you get started.

Have Your Child Tell You Stories

Reading your child a story before bed every night is a great way to get them interested in reading and can even help them learn new words. Another great way to do this is by having your child tell you stories before bed. Take a break from reading bedtime stories and encourage your child to create a story on the spot. You can give them a setting or situation to build from. As they tell you the story, ask questions that will help them use new words.

Take Turns Reading Out Loud

Reading is always a great way to learn new words. Create a special reading time during the day where you and your child can take turns reading to each other. If your child comes across a word they don't know, have them write it down and look it up together in the dictionary. Keep track of the new words your child has learned and incorporate them into your everyday language.

Play Word Games

Using games as an academic tool is an effective way to ensure your child is learning as they have fun. Look for board games and computer games that your child enjoys and learns from. Games such as Scrabble are great academic tools that don't necessarily feel like it.
