Building Vocab Every Day

Around your toddler’s second birthday, he’ll most likely know and be able to say about 50-100 words. By the 3rd birthday, she’ll know about 200! You’ll increasingly notice your child using 2- or 3-word phrases, such as “go outside” or “me go outside.”

 

Here’s how to help further develop your child’s vocabulary:

  • Turn those small words or phrases into sentences—“Do you want to go outside?”
  • Talk throughout your day together about what you are doing, seeing and experiencing.
  • When reading with your toddler, you can point out words; reading aloud helps your toddler repeat words and hear their sounds.
  • Singing and playing songs is another great way to peak your child’s interest in language and words.
