Countdown to Unshushed Relaunch: 10 Days

  • When introducing a new word, make it a game by providing three definitions and allowing your child to guess which one is right. Follow up by using the word in a sentence or reading the word in a story.

What could the word frustrating mean? Or ecstatic? Or grumpy? Doesn’t grumpy sound just a little like grumbling? Sometimes lots of words sound like their meaning! Allowing your child to guess what a new word could possibly mean using phonological clues will help them rememeber that word for … well, for more than five minutes. But every bit counts.

And don’t forget to practice using our Story Time Quick Picks handout! This week, we’ll be taking baths… finally.
