Spring Activities for Language Development


As the weather is getting nicer, you can use nature and outdoor activities to help
build your child’s language skills. Take a walk around your neighborhood and
talk about what you and your child see, hear, smell and touch. This can help
develop their vocabulary and ability to describe things. You can use NOUNS like
grass, flower, sky, cloud, tree, branch, and trunk and ADJECTIVES like soft,
sticky, rough, smooth, noisy, sweet and stinky. If you have a yard, include your
child in some simple gardening activities. Get some shovels, a bucket or a
watering can and talk about ACTIONS as you dig, dump, pull, plant, bury, pour,
etc. You can reinforce BASIC CONCEPTS like full, empty, more and less. If you
are doing some planting, you can introduce SEQUENCE concepts like first, next,
last. Be sure to have your child check back to watch their work grow and bloom!
