Listening to Oral Histories Boosts Language Skills

Don't neglect the importance of building strong listening skills. Try telling your kids some stories from your childhood. Ask questions along the way to verify your child's understanding of the sequence of events, connections between individuals, and historical significance. Encourage your child to ask questions and share thoughts about how past stories relate to your present day family life.
