Do your kids have a good vocabulary? What do you do to improve their vocabulary?

Her vocabulary is below average. Funny thing is that her speech therapist from last year's school called me today and we were just talking about that!

She is going to come to the house 2X a week to help with her vocabulary. Lizzie has problems with her articulation also, but she says let's have that stay in the background and have that take up just a small amount of the time. Since we no longer have to be confined to an IEP, we can do what's most important.

She is going through speech catalogs she has in school this week and will give me a few to choose from. I will work with her in between speech sessions with her.

Mmm good question, I don't know. I am guessing it is about average. Her pronunciation and use of grammar isn't the best. She is always saying "aint I" instead of 'aren’t I" I correct her and get her to say it correctly.
I think the best way to improve vocabulary is to use a wide one yourself and to read aloud and read aloud some more.

Angie has articulation problems too but I worry more about her vocabulary. I think my kids have an *okay* vocabulary but I would like to do some things to improve their vocabulary.

My daughter does an online program called www.time4learning.com. It makes vocabulary age/grade appropriate and humorous.

I just checked out the site. It looks great! I am thinking of signing up for it myself.
