Sharing Discoveries

If your child is interested in something, chances are you are hearing all about it! Give your child the opportunity to share all this interesting knowledge with the whole family by scheduling a special time for him to talk about everything he has learned. Make sure everyone is a captive audience, ask questions and encourage your child to show off the books where he has found his information. Your child will practice language skills, share his enthusiasm and you might learn something too!
