My little guy is crazy, funny, happy, energetic, smart, and lots of fun! I’ve been paying close attention to his language development for about 9 months because I noticed that he wasn’t using as many words as my two older children were at his age. He comprehends everything that we say, but as his second birthday came and went he was still just using a handful of words. This barnyard game is a great way to get him to use the skills that he already has.

Practicing animals sounds is a really effective way to have fun with language when you’re working with toddlers. He’s producing a wide range of sounds and strengthening those muscles. We can make real-world connections by visiting farms and talking to the animals.
Here are some more ideas for using the Fill the Farm game…
Thanks so much to Kim at Life Over C’s for inviting me over to share a blog post. My name is Karry and I’m a Pre-K teacher, mom, wife, and blogger at Yay for PreK! I love developing activities to use with my students and three kids, and this summer I’m focusing my attention on my two year old son.
