Ready to Read: Talking

As children hear spoken language, they learn new words and what they mean. This will help children understand the meaning of what they read.
  • Make sure your children have lots of opportunities to talk with you, not just listen to you talk.
  • Respond to what your children say and extend the conversation. 
  • Stretch your children's vocabulary. Repeat what your children say and use new words.
  • If English isn’t your first language, speak to your children in the language you know best. This allows you to explain things more so your children will learn more.
