Planting flowers with your child is a great opportunity for language growth. Before you even start planting, ask your child what will all be needed in order to plant a flower (seeds, dirt, flower pot, water, shovel). Then ask your child the steps they think are needed to complete the task (gathering materials, putting dirt in the pot, making a hole, etc). When the flowers start to grow, you can talk about the parts of a flower with your child (stem, petals, roots, etc). Happy planting!
