Building your child’s vocabulary is one of the essential ways to develop their ability to communicate. For children who are verbal and even those who are non-verbal but have the ability to learn to read, vocabulary games can make learning words and phrases a fun and interactive way to expand their understanding of the world around them. Some children learn best when repetition and exposure are coupled with the knowledge that they already contain. Games that incorporate visual learning and interactive methods can appeal to different types of learners.
Vocabulary-building games help children understand the basic concepts of grammar and how to build their arsenal of words using prefixes and suffixes. For those who are already reading, games that encourage creating new words using a jumble of letters teach kids how to problem solve and look at words in an alternative way.
Although the games on our list are designed for kids, they’re also a useful tool for new English speakers who want to improve their language skills.
Make learning fun for all with these interactive word-building games for kids.
