HELPING YOUR CHILD TO SPEAK AND LISTEN BY SIMPLY TALKING WITH YOUR CHILD.
Regularly talking and interacting with your child extends their language and listening skills, and helps grow their confidence with language. Include your child when discussing everyday activities such as grocery shopping, gardening, cooking dinner, collecting mail from the mailbox, doing housework, and travelling in the car, train, tram or bus. Outings can also provide a world of new vocabulary. Discussion during outings can enrich your child’s understanding of the world. Outings might include going to the park, the zoo, a shopping centre, museums, libraries and art galleries.
Each week in the IPS Newsletter or on the IPS Website look for “Tips to help your child succeed at school.”
Congratulations everyone on a fabulous first week of school.
