During summer break, your child can relax and engage in other activities that aren't necessarily school-related. However, summer break can also bring with it summer learning loss and a lazier brain. To keep your child's mind awake, why not help them build their vocabulary? Continue reading to learn a few tips on how to do that.

How to Help Your Child Work on Their Vocabulary

  1. First, make sure your child reads during their break. Doing so won't only work their imagination, but it can also help them practice their grammar, spelling, and their vocabulary.
  2. While reading will help your child find new words, they will need to learn what they mean in order to introduce them into their vocabulary. To that end, remember to provide a dictionary and to teach them how to employ it properly.
  3. Keeping a journal over the break will allow your child to document their summer days, thoughts, opinions, and more. Moreover, it will help them practice the new vocabulary.
  4. A simple way to assist your child with their vocabulary is to talk to them. This way, you can introduce new words into the conversation and explain their meaning. Likewise, you can encourage your child to use those new words as they speak.
  5. Lastly, you can make learning fun! To that end, play Scrabble with your child, complete a crossword puzzle with them, and find other games that will force them to build their vocabulary skills.
