How to Play

Someone starts and says a word, the next person has to say the first word that comes into his or her head, the next person has to say something related to that word, but can’t say a word that has already been used

Children improve their language by hearing how words are used in everyday life whilst building their vocabulary. Chatting to your child helps build their communication skills.

Getting your child to tell you stories or explain things. If you don’t understand their link ask them to explain their word association. Word association also helps them to put ideas in the right order.  This is an important skill for listening and speaking.
