I'm no expert, but I would think the best way is to read a lot to her from a variety of materials. I read to Anna from books that are intended for 8 year olds which have a much richer variety of vocabulary words than the books that are geared to 2 and 3 year olds. Anna is also very fond of paging through children's dictionaries with pictures--which are also intended for kids already reading. She looks at the pictures and discusses them with us--she knows words I wouldn't expect her to as a result. One of her other favorite things to do is to look at women's magazines and especially the ads with pictures and we talk about what she sees. It all seems to be increasing her vocabulary.

Definitely reading a lot and talking about things in your daily life. Point out things often. I forget how many times we need to hear a word before we will use it...
