Show And Tell

Pick your child’s favourite toy, book, fruit, or any other object and ask the child to speak about it. Depending on the age of your child, starting with a single line to 5 to 6 sentences will serve the purpose of the activity. Anything from 30 seconds to 2-3 minutes should be your goal. This activity will help them articulate what is there in their mind and helps them improve their communication skills. Initially, the parents might need to give a demo to the child as to how this fun activity can be done.

Picture Reading

Take a picture from a magazine, a book or a newspaper and ask the child what all he can see happening in the picture. Give an example to the child and then ask him to describe it. Also, ask him to imagine what must have happened before and after that picture. This way you will help the kid’s creative juices to flow along with giving a boost to his sentence formation.
