Game: Naming, Labelling and Sorting

Related to: Knowing Words, Talk

Activities focused on talk help your child build a richer vocabulary. Learning new words will help your child better express themselves.

Once your child starts talking, help him find the words for things around him. Make a game of labelling items in your home together. When you are running errands, point out things in the neighbourhood and in the shops. Help your child find things that are the same. For example, find some products that are green or things shaped like a triangle.
