Language Acquisition Through Sensory Play
Although infants do not have the words to tell about their experiences, sensory play with an accompanying adult can help babies’ language skills grow. While you are assisting infants during a sensory activity, remember to ask questions and use descriptive language when talking with them.
By using new vocabulary that relates to the experience, you are helping to create connections in the brain while making the activity meaningful.
