Practicing familiar names

Here is another fun language activity to actively engage your older toddler or young preschooler.  Simply place photos of family members on your refrigerator.  With toddlers start with immediate family members such as mom, dad, themselves, and siblings and for preschoolers you can begin to add grandparents, pets, aunts and uncles, and special friends.  Make these photos big enough for the children to see with their names clearly written under the photograph.  Place magnetic letters (a couple of each letter would be preferable) beneath the photographs and have your child then use magnetic letters to spell the names on the specific photos underneath.  As your child gets older, you can begin to have them sound out the names to find the letters on their own and spell the names independently.Image
