5 language activities for quiet toddlers.x

 Hello readers 


 I hope you are all well and safe. Today's blog will be a communication and language based blog. Some children have the capability of talking but in busy settings may be shy and not want to talk. With the school season approaching I will be providing you with speech and language activities that you can do with your child at home. 



1. Make a scrap book. Use old magazines, pictures from the internet anything you can get hold off. Make a scrapbook out of different photos such as things you can ride on , foods , shapes , colours,  utensils and animals. Sit down with your child and talk about the pictures , what you can see and whats happening in the pictures.

2. The "yes" or "no" game. Make up silly questions to ask your child such as "can a car fly" "do pigs have wings" "can you see air". Let your child ask you questions to engage their brain. Your child will be using critical thinking and vocabulary by doing this.

3. Make snack time a time for a conversation. If you were to be making your child drink you can say "want water...I have some water ...would you like some water?". It is important you add more words to your sentences to expand on the childs vocabulary. Eventually children will repeat the phrases you have said to them.

4. When talking to you.child throughout the day always give them a choice. Such as if your child is having snack you can ask them "do you want an apple or a banana?" "Would you like squash or water?". Here your child will be using words to say which one they want to have.

5. Use singing games. You can sing rhymes with your child where they will begin to hear repetition and new words. You can sing songs such as heads shoulders knees and toes and talk about each body part so your child knows what each part isn, where it is and how they are used. 


Children love to hear adults they trust having a conversation. The more language they hear the more words they will pick up on. 


Happy Talking


Love Mamma x
