What Did I Say Twice?
Try this verbal game when you have time on your hands. Ask your child to listen carefully while you say a short string of familiar words, but use one of the words twice. Then ask her, What did I repeat? For example, “Cat, horse, dog, cat, mouse, snake.” Or, “Plate, fork, napkin, fork, knife, table.” It’s easier when the words are in a category as in these examples; or you could make it more challenging with unrelated words: “book, tree, school, tree, bed.”
