Which of the following types of words are MOST beneficial to teach your toddler?
Toddlers learn language in everyday routines and activities. They need vocabulary that they can use to communicate basic wants and needs. This includes names for familiar people and things, adjectives (describing words), and verbs (action words). At around 2 years of age, toddlers should be putting short phrases together (e.g., "eat cookie", "Mama come"), then longer sentences will come. Verbs are necessary for making sentences. Academic vocabulary (e.g., letter names, colors) is less of a priority at these early stages.
