Looking for a simple way to encourage language development with your child?
Do you realize that you ask your child hundreds of questions everyday? "Where are you shoes?", "Do you want milk?"; "Are you ready to go?"; "Do you have to go to the bathroom?"; "Where did you put my keys?".....
Most of the time we want a quick answer: "yes" or "no", but there are specific times throughout the day when we can encourage children to answer with a sentence, or use brand new vocabulary. When we ask questions in a certain way, children use critical thinking skills to answer. These questions are called: Open-Ended Questions.
Open-ended questions teach children how to:
- Use Language in Conversations
- Convey their Feelings
- Develop Imagination
- Formulate Responses to Questions
- Support Critical Thinking Skills
- Learn New Words
- Problem Solve
This FREE OPEN ENDED QUESTIONS GUDE will provide you with a variety of questions to ask your child throughout the day.
