One way children learn vocabulary is when they are explicitly taught new words and their meaning. Review vocabulary words with your child that he doesn’t yet know. Ask him questions such as “Do you know what gallop means? It means to run fast.”
This activity will not only help your child learn new vocabulary, but also animal facts and reading left to right.
