Teach and Learn: Shop Play Edition

Is there anything better than playing shops?

I don't think so.

Watch me play with Etta (age 20 months) and keep an interaction going. Remember, children learn language best through play. Throw away your flash cards!

Strategies I’m using:

  • Saying what Etta says and adding a word
  • Saying words back slowly and clearly to her
  • Letting her lead the play and eating what I’m offered
  • Keeping the turn taking going
  • Labelling things she doesn’t know the name of
  • Linking language to something else she knows. Likes monkeys eat bananas
  • Repeating new words with lots of emphasis on sounds she struggle with
