Did You know?

I am studing a course named Language and Vocabulary for the Preschool classroom and I found something very important...

so I thought I would share...

When learning new words: "It is fundamental to understand that children will learn the first definition they hear. Because of this it is best to define the word for the children as apposed to allowing children to guess the definition of objects. Guessing can lead to learning a definition that may be incorrect."

But also don't forget to give them a child friendly definition of the word :)

thank you so much for reading my blog :)
