Lesson plans usually contain vocabulary practice. Vocabulary is so very important for kids. My daughter has a rather large vocabulary because my husband and I always used a large vocabulary around her as a little girl, and we never spoke baby talk to her. We had her tested at age four and the facilitator was amazed. When she worked with Dad in the garden, my husband was careful to explain things like compost, seedlings, transplant… to her as they had fun and planted or weeded. I always tried to use uncommon words in the kitchen and while we were out and about. As she was growing up, she usually seemed much older, as far as her conversations were concerned, than other kids her age. Another benefit to having a rich vocabulary is better story writing. Playing online vocabulary games is a fun way to get in that extra practice. So, get cracking on increasing your vocabulary today.
