Talk out loud to your child about what you are doing in that exact moment

I narrate my day constantly while my daughter stands next to me soaking in every word. It may seem strange at first but after a while it will become second nature. You can also narrate an activity your child is doing. If she sits down to build with blocks, talk freely about what she is building. Describe the block colors, shapes, etc. Books are another great way to narrate at home. Read a story out loud with your child. Whatever the activity – you really can’t go wrong! The simple ‘story of your life’ can have a big impact on your child.
