Teach your child to read

Children can learn words as early as 2 years old..

Communication skills for a child start to show up early in is life. During the first 12 months a baby leans to communicate and discovers the sounds of his language    Besides, he ”practices” using them when he does those ”aaaaa” and those ”bababa”. Little by little he understand words then he begins to speak.

Toddlers usually say their first word between 12 and 16 months of age.  The words he learns to say later usually refers to familiar people and things.  They are also often linked to routines, like ”dodo” or ” hi, bye”. At this age the toddler is not yet able to combine words to indicate the things he sees and to express what he wants.

The toddler continues to develop his vocabulary around 18 to 24 months. When he says several words designating people and objects, he begins to name actions like eating, drinking.  Some other sounds can be difficult for him to pronounce.

When toddler is able to say several words, he begins to put them together to build a two word sentences, such as: ” daddy’s gone.” If he tries to make slightly longer word combinations, he often omits the little words like my, he or to because they are difficult.

  1. Great information. My children are adopted and were not taught to read or be read to. We’ve been on an upward struggle since they were toddlers as I believe the birth parents just used to give them phones to distract them! We’ve worked really hard to get my son on track and had a major breakthrough when I confiscated all electronic devices from his bedroom until he had read a book. By this point he could read but was not at all interested in what happened and don’t really think he remembered what happened in one paragraph let alone a whole page. It took 3 months and he’d finally finished a David Walliams book. I was so proud of him and to my surprise recalled most of the story, he had really enjoyed it, even more surprising he picked his next book without being asked. Now a year on he’s a total bookworm and reads everyday.

  2. I totally agree with you. Reading is something extremely important that improves imagination and thinking. It is crucial to read to your kids while they are still little. It develops a sense of curiosity and interest in the kids which helps them a lot in the future.

  3. This is awesome and I wholeheartedly agree. I try never to turn down down my grandchildren (or my children…years ago!) when they want me to read a book.

    The more interested you are in the book, the more interested they will be. Oh, and you can get a good snuggle in while you’re reading with them!

    1. Thant right Cynthia, More you give them attention sometime the more they want, but for alot of children it give them confidence it you let them read some word. They become more proud of them self and It’s good for there independing.
