Conversation Months

October/November is Conversation Month

During these two months, I teach the children how to expand on their conversation skills. Many parents bring their children to SK to seek help in "How to have my child have a conversation  with another child.?" We teach many skills at SK on how to help your child come out of his/her shell.

I will share one lesson with you today you could use at home. Practice using the 5W questions with your children. Make the 5W questions on notecards: who, what, where, when, why (and/or how). Make up role play situations with your child. He/she has to pick a 5W question from your pile and act out the first scene wrong.   Then give your child the cards again and let he/she practice again doing it the correct way. Give lots of praise for doing it well.
