Identifying Objects

By Jennifer Scotton

Our daughter is nearly a year old and busier than ever. It’s a joy to watch her try out new skills and make discoveries on a daily basis.

Children learn by watching what we do, so we have begun to point out and identify objects for our daughter while we move through daily tasks. As she is discovering new items, I will name the object and describe its use for her while she turns it over in her hands: “this is a watering can, it helps us give our flowers water so they can grow big and beautiful.” I demonstrate how the object is used and then let her try it on her own. Her confidence is blossoming with every new skill she learns.
