Language Games for Those Long Days of Summer

Help your child to increase their language skills this summer!

The first activity is all about fact and opinion. Be sure that your child knows the difference. If they don't discuss with them that a fact is something everyone knows is true and that an opinion is an individual point of view which can differ from one person to another. Give a few examples so that they get the point. Next, tell your child that you are going to give a statement and that they will raise one finger if the think the statement is a fact and two fingers if they think the statement is an opinion. They get a point for everyone they get correct. Switch on them and have them think up statements and you hold up the fingers. These statements are also great conversation starters.

The second activity helps with completing sentences, utilizing adjectives, and increasing vocabulary. Come up with some adjectives such as disgusting, crunchy, horrible, silly, or fuzzy. Then have your child make a five word sentence with that word. Younger kids will enjoy just trying to get the right number of words in the sentence. Older kids may like to be timed or compete for who can come up with the sentence first. Regardless of the way you decide to play it's a great game that will stretch their brain muscles.

Language skills are important because we use them every single day. Following directions, increasing vocabulary, completing sentences, comparing/contrasting, and organizing thoughts are all considered language skills. Even if you don't use these particular games listed above you will find that any game can address language. I Spy, Simon Says, or board games can all help improve communication. If your child knows how to play have them recite the directions. The more teaching they are involved in the more you will find that they are learning. So sit down with your child and enjoy a good game to help to improve these skills and to also just have fun!
