Articulation: Encourage your child to practice their speech for just 5 minutes each day during everyday activities (driving in the car, meal times, telling you about their day, etc.) Just prompt them by saying, “Okay now for the next 5 minutes you can tell me about your camping trip …….but use your best speech while you tell me!”
Language K-2: Name 5 kinds of outdoor spring activities.

It also helps with developing vocabulary.
