Make Time to Talk: Language Building Tips for Center-Based Child Care Providers
National Institute for Literacy
Everyone knows that it's important to talk every day with each child, using the kind of talk that builds language and thinking skills. The phrase MAKE TIME TO TALK is to help child care providers remember things they can do when talking to children to help them learn new vocabulary and how to use language to express their ideas and needs, and that helps them have fun with language. These tips are offered to center-based child care providers and home-based child care providers. [Make Time to Talk is based on the National Institute for Literacy publication Learning to Talk and Listen (2009), and the National Early Literacy Panel Report (2009). This publication was produced for the RMC Research Corporation.]
