Express ideas with expanded vocabulary
As young children have better communication and comprehension skills, they can now master a broader vocabulary that covers names of people, body parts and everyday items. They can also express themselves with simple sentences and gestures. Growing curiosity means that they will keep asking questions.
Parents may guide their children to explore the world, such as observing the changes in nature, the amazing animals and plants. In addition to teaching them new words, parents may also practise common sentence structures with their children to help them express themselves. Young children should be able to understand simple mathematical concepts, such as numbers or shapes, by the age of 1 or 2. Therefore, related concepts may also be incorporated in daily activities or reading so as to develop their logical thinking.
