Milestones

Speaking

You might notice that:

  • I can use simple sentences of three to four words to talk about what I am doing or what is happening.
  • When I am talking with you, I talk about lots of different things – what I am doing, what I like or what I have done.
  • I use objects and gestures to help me explain what I mean when I am talking.
  • I can ask questions such as “what”, “where” and “who” when I am sharing a book or playing with toys.
  • I am beginning to use word endings, such as “I am going” instead of “I go”, and plurals, such as “babies”, when talking about more than one object or person.

How you can help me learn:

  • When we’re playing with things, use new words to describe what I’m doing with them or to tell me what they are called.
