Tips To Help Your Child Learn New Concepts
As parents and caregivers we often find ourselves constantly asking "What is this?" or "What color is that?" This type of questioning is actually testing, and should only be used when you know that your child knows the concept 100%. Giving the wrong answer time and time again actually embeds the incorrect answer. We know, through research, that for every wrong answer a child gives they must practice the correct answer 7-10 times correctly in order to erase the incorrect response.
It is absolutely fine, while your child is learning new language and concepts, to give them the language that they need. By doing this you are teaching and not testing. Too much language is never a bad thing. We need to talk to children about everything. Talk while you are cooking or folding laundry, telling your children what you are doing and why. To others it might appear that you are talking to yourself, but children need to hear all types of language: factual, stories, processes and explanations.
When playing and working with your child it is important to label objects and actions.
"Look it's a red ball." "That ball is bouncing." "This is green, can you find me something else that is green?"
