Learning Language Through Daily Routines…Bathtime!

DSC03991

 

The book Baby Messy, Baby Clean, was a perfect choice for engaging the children this week.  There were many funny pictures of messy babies that the children (and their parents) could relate to.  There were few words in this book, but many many descriptive pictures.  We listened and watched the story, discussing all of the extra vocabulary.

There were many opportunities for the children to practice the language around bath time with their play.  We had conversations around the value of naming an item or word, but then also expanding it, to model using it properly in a phrase or sentence.

“Washcloth”… “We can put the soap on the washcloth”

“Its a duck”… “The duck is swimming in the water”

Learning Language Through Daily Routines…


 WELCOME ALL TO PIT!!

We has a fantastic showing at our first Parent, Infant, Toddler Playgroup. We had a wonderful time exploring our new environment and welcoming new families.

Busy

For the first few weeks we will focus on developing language through the mealtime routine.  We modeled strategies for developing listening and spoken language skills as well as provided vocabulary and strategies for families who are working to enhance their child’s ASL skills.

Today’s ASL/ Spoken English story focused on bombardment of the word eat/ate and introduced new ASL vocabulary about many foods our environment…

We enjoyed our explorations so much that we decided to do it again!! The families engaged in language expansion activities and one of our little friends learned the word “dandelion” after a discussion of expanding vocabulary models to include these specific names after general names for items are learned.
