I guess you knew by now that I am a newbie mom of a preschool boy and it’s quite obvious that I always document every assignments or activities that he has been learning from school or at home.
After all we parents are our child’s first teacher, right?!
Little A is learning his math skills. Now, he can write the numbers 1-20 which surprised me kasi I thought hanggang 15 pa lang sia.
And then he told me that he learned new numbers and wanted to write it as well. I was amazed, of course! hehe
However, in literacy he learnt to form letters using the formation rhymes. You must see him writing each letters as in ang cute!
For instance he’ll write S while writing it he will say “slither down the snake” or for P “down the pan across the plate”. Basta kabisado nia lahat ng rhymes ng letters nakakatuwa. Mana sa tatay! Very smart!! hehe
That’s why we practice forming the letters through blending and segmenting.
Kids will always have excuses when it comes to writing skills but through constant practice you will see a big progress.
One of my favorite parts of being a mother–aside from spending time with little A–is finding ideal moments for sneaking in some learning.
Whether he’s playing with numbers, letters or language, there is always fulfilment and joy in my heart every time we are doing our activities. At his early age little A can read already. I must say that his passion and eagerness to learn makes it easy for us to teach/guide him.
Here are two quickie tricks for developing reading through play.
Reading can be so sneaky but learning through play can be beneficial . . . no one even knows he’s learning and having a good ol’ time.
