Parenting for School Success — Key Skills
Nothing enhances language development like literature. Parents don’t always have to explain unknown words as children will usually begin to understand from the context. As your child matures you can teach them to ask about words they don’t know. Books offer a great opportunity to introduce words that may not be part of your own vernacular.
Many books for children incorporate rhyming which plays a big part in learning to read. Besides bringing attention to the rhymes in the book by asking your child to occasionally predict the next rhyming word, try making up rhymes when you are out and about. Nonsense words are just as good.
