Use a popular family game as a way to develop knowledge of new vocabulary with your little one.
Generating an interest in words and how they work can encourage a love of language in children. Reading to and with children is extremely important to the development of vocabulary. By mixing the two together you are increasing their ability to develop their knowledge and skills in early literacy learning. Charades is a game that the whole family can play and by introducing it at a young age will enable children to become aware of the language that is used during communication with other people.
Try and introduce some new vocabulary to your little one so that they are having exposure to new words and phrases. This game can be a great way in which you can do this – also why not adapt this activity to include pictures of what they are acting out.
Why not make some more cards using a different letter or theme for the words?
Use words that are relevant to the stage of development of your little one. Why not try using animal names or food names and get them to act it out for you to guess what they are reading.
