Linguistic Gift-Boosting Activities

There are all sorts of ways that kids express their linguistic talents. Some kids devour books. Some tell jokes that always get a laugh. Others scribble poems, write skits, or tell stories. These activities will fuel the fire in your already-eager wordsmith, and they'll spark the flame in the reluctant reader or shy speaker.

Remember, sharing your own love of books and language is one of the best ways to foster that love in kids. How can you do that? Read with them, talk with them, and listen to what they have to say.

Choose your child's age group to get great activities.
Grades K-2
Grades 3-5
Grades 6-8
