Building up Your Child's Vocabulary at Home

Students need to constantly build up their vocabulary. The higher their vocabulary, the easier it is for them to do well academically. That is why it is so important that they dedicate more time to improving their vocabulary. You can make vocabulary building at home more fun and interesting by using the following games and activities.

4 Ways to Make Vocabulary Building Fun

  1. Rhymes.  Learning more advanced words can be fun and easy when you do it through rhymes and songs. This is a great way for younger children to learn and have fun. Older children might also enjoy learning new words through rhymes and tongue twisters that are more challenging.
  2. Word of the week. Every week a different family member gets to choose a challenging word. Everyone should try to use it as much as possible, and whoever uses it correctly the most during the week gets to pick a prize. The prize can be something simple like getting to pick their favorite meal for dinner, getting extra dessert, or even getting to pick out a small prize at the store. 

  3. Guess the word. At the end of the month, you can pick a few new vocabulary words that you all learned and each person can take turns acting out a different one while everyone else tries to guess what word it is.
  4. 10 Questions. This is a great way to review vocabulary words. Think of a word that your child has recently learned and then let them ask a maximum of 10 yes or no questions until they guess what word you are thinking of.
