Learning Tips


Locate objects around the house. Ask your should to name the object. After the object is named, describe the color (red, blue, etc.,). Ask your child about the objects size.

Ex. This is a chair. The chair is blue and made of wood.

Ex. This is a rug. The rug is thick. It has a brown and white pattern.

Explain that the more specific sentences may connect describing words.


To describe an event, try to recall something that happened recently.

Ex. A birthday party.

(General) We went to a birthday party. We had fun.

To get more specific and detailed ask your child probing questions.

Whose birthday party was it?

Did they have food? What kind of food?

Did they play games? Tell me about the games played.

Were there presents? Did you give a present?

Explain that the more descriptive sentences may contain describing words (adjectives) and doing words (verbs).
