“Experience Books” as language building tools
“Experience Books” are a wonderful tool for helping a child build language skills. You can create experience books using photos from your adventures with your little one.
Some ideas for where to take photos for your “Experience Books” :
I love this “Experience Book” from Two-Daloo!
You can add photos, or photos and text, to your “Experience Books” to discuss a great day with your child and work on vocabulary and sharing. As you can see in the photos below, it is a great idea to select specific moments that are memorable for your child, such as meeting a goat face-to-face or seeing a red tractor!
To build on this activity you could create a sensory component to your “Experience Book” by adding tactile materials such as dried beans or rice and including small objects such as a plastic tractor or farm animal figurines.
Here is an example of an interactive farm animal sensory box you could create with your child to go with your farm “Experience Book”.
