Cooking!! We do it so often and it can be an amazing time to work on communication skills. We can help our children learn new labels, practice new skills and have fun in the process! I have a free printable download with the strategies at the end of this blog post.

Work on labeling items that you use while cooking.

  • spoon
  • chocolate chips
  • butter
  • tortilla
  • salsa
  • cheese
  • pouring
  • stirring

Work on one step directions.

  • Get the plates
  • Pour the water
  • Get the cheese
  • Stir the batter

Work on conversation skills.

  • Did you have fun cooking today?
  • Would you rather eat a taco or spaghetti?
  • What is your favorite dessert?

Don’t forget to snag your free download today. Put it right on the fridge and make cooking a language enriched activity for your child!
