πŸ’¬ Between the ages of 2 and 3, children have a huge jump in language skills:

At age 2, most children can follow directions and say 50 or more words. Many combine words in short phrases and sentences. Children this age usually can follow two-step instructions, such as "pick up the ball and bring it to Daddy."

By age 3, a toddler's vocabulary usually is 200 or more words, and many can string together three- or four-word sentences. Children at this stage of language development can understand more and speak more clearly.

By now, you should be able to understand about 75% of what your toddler says. πŸ˜ƒ

At Smiley Kids we read every day!

Reading is a superpower! Not only does it unlock a world of imagination, but it brings an opportunity to learn about new things as well as share experiences.

Reading and sharing stories will:

πŸ“š Help your child get to know sounds, words and language, and develop early literacy skills
learn to value books and stories.
πŸ“š Spark your child’s imagination and stimulate curiosity.
πŸ“š Help develop your child’s brain, ability to focus, concentration, social skills and communication skills.
πŸ“š Help your child learn the difference between β€˜real’ and β€˜make-believe’.
πŸ“š Help your child understand new or frightening events, and the strong emotions that come with them.
πŸ“š Help your child learn about the world, their own culture and other cultures.

Enjoy !

Listening to your baby babble is entertaining and adorable. But babbling also serves an important purpose in their overall language development.

Coming before their first words, babbling often starts around 4 to 6 months of age and continues through the first year.

You can encourage it by conversing with your baby, even though neither one of you has any idea what the other is saying, and exposing your baby to language in all its forms, including reading and singing.

Enjoy chatting with your little one! πŸ’¬πŸ˜ƒ

The preschool years have been regarded as the most important time for children to develop their vocabulary competency before joining formal learning at schools.

Here is a valuable checklist for language development of a Grade RR child πŸ‘§πŸ½πŸ’¬

πŸ’¬How can I help my child’s language skills?πŸ’¬

1️⃣ Talk, talk, talk. Narrate the day as it evolves. Tell your child, for instance, "Now we're going to take a bath. Can you feel the warm water on your belly? When we dry off, we'll get dressed and take a walk."

2️⃣ Read, read, read. It's never too early to read to your baby. One good predictor of future reading success is the amount of time parents spend reading with their child. Parents can start with simple board books and graduate to picture books and longer stories as their child gets older. Story times at the local library or bookstore can also help a preschooler develop a love of books.

3️⃣ Enjoy music together. Young children love music and movement. When they listen to lively songs, like "Old McDonald Had a Farm," they learn about the world around them and the rhythm of language.

4️⃣ Tell stories. Make up elaborate stories with characters, conflict, adventure, and a happy ending. Be sure that the stories fit your child's interests and aren't too scary for their liking.

5️⃣ Follow your child's lead. If your little one seems interested in a particular picture in a book, keep talking about it. If she seems intrigued by a boat, show them more boats and talk about them, too. Repeat their babbles back to them, ask questions, and interact with them. You can even try recording your child on a tape recorder and playing it back.

6️⃣ Never criticize your child's articulation or speech patterns. Instead, repeat their statements back to them with the correct pronunciation or word usage. Give your child lots of praise for their efforts.

7️⃣ Use television and computers sparingly. It is recommended that children younger than 2 years of age not watch television at all, and that children 2 and older view no more than two hours of quality programming a day. While some educational programs can be beneficial to kids, TV shows don't interact with or respond to children, which are the two catalysts kids need to learn language. Computer games are interactive, but they aren't responsive to a child's ideas.

8️⃣ Treat ear infections thoroughly. If your pediatrician prescribes an antibiotic to treat an infection, make sure your child takes the correct dosage each day and uses it for the full prescribed time. When your child finishes the prescription, schedule a follow-up visit with your pediatrician to make sure the infection has cleared. Damage to the ear can cause severe language development issues.

9️⃣ Go on field trips. A trip to the zoo, the aquarium, or a children's museum will open up a whole new world for your child. As an added bonus, they'll want to learn the names of all those fascinating creatures and fun activities she experienced.

πŸ’¬ Babies communicate from birth, through sounds (crying, cooing, squealing), facial expressions (eye contact, smiling, grimacing) and gestures and body movements (moving legs in excitement or distress, and later, gestures like pointing.)

Babies continue to develop communication skills when adults respond to their efforts to β€œtell” others about what they need or want.
