Get Them Talking Get Them Learning Cover

Command of language is the single most important thing that we can teach our children. Providing them with as many different language-rich experiences as possible will not only increase the number of things they have to talk about, but also give them the language to describe and interact with the world around them.

The early years are an important time for children to engage in talk and exploration of language. This book outlines some of the types of talk that commonly occur in our everyday interactions. It describes the common obstacles that can prevent opportunities for these types of talk to occur as well as practical ideas for how you can support their development. Each section also includes a short case study – Ideas in practice – taken from a variety of settings.
