Title: The Best Ways to Improve Your Child's Vocabulary


1
  • THE BEST WAYS TO IMPROVE
  • YOUR CHILD'S VOCABULARY

2
(No Transcript)
3
  • Helping your child develop an extensive
    vocabulary will ensure they succeed academically
    and socially.

4
  • Not only will a large vocabulary help them sail
    through standardized tests, but it also enables
    them to speak to their peers and authority
    figures with confidence.

5
  • However, this is one skill that is best taught by
    surrounding your child with multiple types of
    support.

6
  • As you plan ways to improve your childs
    vocabulary, use these strategies to give them the
    best chances for success.

7
  • Encourage Them to Read Challenging Books

8
  • From the moment you open that very first book
    with your child, you are exposing them to a world
    full of words.

9
  • In the early years, many parents offer books that
    are simple to read so that their new reader does
    not become frustrated.

10
  • Talk to your childs teacher and academic tutor
    about your childs current reading level.

11
  • This way, they can guide you to a selection of
    books that will challenge your child without
    being overly frustrating.

12
  • Use Rich Vocabulary Around Your Child

13
  • As a parent, it is important to model desired
    behaviors, and using rich vocabulary around your
    child helps them learn how to use new words in
    their appropriate contexts.

14
  • Avoid using baby talk or simplifying your
    language. Instead, speak carefully, and be
    willing to provide explanations for the meaning
    of new words when your child asks.

15
  • Enroll in
  • Academic Tutoring

16
  • Individualized learning experiences are important
    for helping your child learn new words and how to
    use them correctly.

17
  • Academic tutoring provides targeted instruction
    that is tailored to your childs abilities.

18
  • Whether they play a word game with their teacher
    or practice speaking with a group of their peers

19
  • each tutoring lesson will focus on implementing
    strategies that makes learning new vocabulary
    words fun and effective for your child.

20
  • Create Opportunities
  • to Practice

21
Simply memorizing a list of vocabulary words will
not help your child remember them in casual
conversation.
22
  • For this reason, social opportunities are
    critical while your child is strengthening their
    oral language skills.

23
  • After school programs, such as tutoring and
    sports, are great ways to extend your childs
    language learning beyond the school day.

24
  • It is also important to stretch their vocabulary
    through enrichment opportunities such as science
    clubs and fine arts lessons.

25
  • Provide Supportive Feedback

26
  • When a child makes attempts to use new words, it
    is important to acknowledge their successes while
    providing supportive correction for mistakes.

27
  • Make it a point to notice when your child uses a
    word that is new to their vocabulary.

28
  • If they use a word incorrectly, give them the
    correct word or help them see how to make it fit
    the sentence.

29
  • This helps to reinforce their learning while also
    building their confidence to take a risk in
    casual conversations.

30
  • Building your childs vocabulary is a process
    that begins early in their academic years.

31
  • Yet, nurturing a love for learning new words pays
    off as your child begins searching for the
    meaning of new words they hear.

32
  • By implementing multiple strategies that support
    word acquisition into your childs daily routine

33
  • you will be seeing noticeable results in their
    conversations and knowledge every time you talk
    about their day.

34
  • Improve your kids vocabulary
  • by signing them up for
  • academic tutoring at
  • Maplewood Summer Day Camp.

35
  • Experienced staff will keep your child both safe
    and busy with chess, arts and crafts, games,
    water sports, gymnastics
  • and more.
