"Vocabulary knowledge is knowledge; the knowledge of a word not only implies a definition, but also implies how that word fits into the world." --Steven A. Stahl, Teaching Word Meanings (2005)
Help your child explore words in multiple contexts so that she can build a deeper understanding of word meanings.

AT HOME, THE PET STORE, OR THE ZOO – All animals move, people included! Some animals can move in the same way as people, like a jumping frog, but other animals do things that people can't, like a flying bird. Read Animals in Action to your baby to share Scientific Knowledge about different animals, and talk about Active, Coordinated Movement skills that people can do, too.
