Part of narrative skills is being able to describe things. For example, when you talk about the colors and shapes and textures of your child’s clothing, or what kinds of things your child’s toys do, it gives your child new words. Embellishing your descriptions of events of the day may help children recall an experience and the words associated with it. Researchers say participating in these activities will make it easier for your child when it comes time for formal reading instruction.
