Sticky Words Enokson

Keep track of a toddler's vocabulary by using stickers.

Materials Needed:

  • A collection of stickers of common objects and people.
  • A sticker album (you can also use a sheet of paper, a piece of cardboard etc.).

What to do:

  • Collect a variety of stickers that are common animals and objects.
  • Every time your child learns a new word, try to find a sticker that represents that word.
  • Add them to a sticker album or a sheet of paper.
  • When you get a page full of stickers, review words by pointing to the stickers while your child names them.

Hints and Tips:

  • This is a great and fun way to build your child’s vocabulary without making it a chore.
  • Write nursery rhymes in a notebook, replacing some of the words with stickers. When saying the nursery rhyme as you get to the sticker pause and point so the child can “read” what the next word is.
