Before starting to work on child’s speech and communications skills we need to make him desire to tell something. Child can tell any story happened to him, the game he played or the fairy tale. Listen kids with interest and gently corrects them.
Sometimes child has a head full of pictures of what he wants to talk, but he is not able to build the story in the right time sequence. So we have to prepare him in advance. Arrange the order and offer your kid to put them in the correct sequence. And then asked him to make and tell a little story using pictures. Let the child is not limited to one word, and answer the full proposal.
At this age your child has develop speech that people around will understand him. Kids under 4 years old are often not able to describe the object and its quality and try to express it with fingers. The children of 4-5 years are already able to explain much more. It is necessary to listen and to correct your kid, that he knew how to speak properly. Our kindergarten speaking worksheets will help you to develop appropriate vocabulary and speech of your child.
In the kindergarten age kids actively enrich their speech with gestures. Pay attention to the accuracy and appropriateness of this expression, showing by example how to do it correctly.
In 4 years the child is ready to explore the world in more detail. Parents can help your growing child compare different objects, for example, two different spoons. The child is able to understand that they are different:
- color (one silver, and she a painted flowers);
- material of which are made (one from a metal, and another – of a tree);
Often children do not understand the difference between yesterday and today, summer and winter, morning and evening. Be sure to explain to the child, and acquainted him with detailed performance differences. With our communication skills worksheets your child will develop appropriate speech and will be reading for elementary school.
Wherever you are with your child – in the park, backyard, at the party, in the clinic – always talk to the kid. Describe what you see, and ask his opinion.
