Vocabulary Building Tips to Try at Home

Schools tend to put a lot of emphasis on math, reading, and science. However, other subjects also have a bigger academic impact than we sometimes realize. Grammar and vocabulary are areas that are not as predominant but that actually play an important role in your child's overall learning. That is why today we want to focus on the importance of vocabulary building and how to help your child achieve it.

Why Is Vocabulary Building Important?

Your child's ability to grasp words and meanings correctly can greatly facilitate their advancement in other areas. All school subjects including math and science require the ability to understand terms and vocabulary in order to advance. However, sometimes memorizing the terms and vocabulary can be tedious. That may be why many students end up falling behind. Encouraging your child to have fun with vocabulary building by using games and activities can help motivate your child to expand their vocabulary and learn new terms more easily.

How to Help Your Child Learn New Vocabulary in a More Enjoyable Manner

Play board games such as Pictionary and Scrabble or card games that encourage vocabulary building. You can also try other family games such as Ten Questions, where you pick out a new vocabulary word or term that your child is learning and they get to ask 10 yes or no questions to try and guess what word you are thinking of. You should also encourage vocabulary building activities, such as reading and writing. Keeping a journal is a great way for your child to also build-up their writing skills and practice new vocabulary.
