What you will learn:

  • Preparing a snack is a good learning opportunity, you can talk about the shape, size colour of the food as you prepare it
  • Talking together about what you are doing helps her understand what is happening around her and why things happen
  • Giving simple instructions helps her see what it is you want her to do.
  • When walking down the street, describe what you see.
  • If your toddler doesn’t understand, use different words
  • Talking a lot is the best way to learn language
  • Children LOVE the fact that everything is new to them and exploring the world is amazing to them
  • Everyday objects are new to toddlers so talk about their shape, colour and how they feel.
