Teaching a Two Year Old

L, M, N, O, P...S, T, U

Singing bits and pieces of the alphabet, I'm taking the "Q" that Sophia is ready to learn.

It's never too early to teach a child to read and write.

Every kid is different, I agree, Sophia seems ready to learn at 2 1/2.  She is very interested in detailed things and seems to have an attention span of longer than 10 seconds!

I went out in search of some learning tools other than our usual crayons, glue, construction paper and cheerios and found a great teaching set by Kumon.  The set focuses on learning the ABC's and tracing the letters.

This is how it went....

Still in our pajamas, Sophia came running to me bright and early this morning asking that we play with the new flash-cards we bought yesterday.  With only a smidgen of my coffee drank, and my eyes still not perky, I couldn't resist the excitement and joy she had in her voice.  

We got out the cards, ready to begin.

We practiced how to hold the pen for a long time, she didn't get frustrated which was great for me.  

We traced together, several times, so she could get the "hang" of it.

She practiced by herself to hold the pen right.

She amazes me.

Then, I let her go, on her own.

Starting at the top of her favorite letter, "C as in Kitty Cat" as she likes to say.

She diligently worked her way around the C.

The curve got a little tougher, but she kept going, not making a peep.

With tongue out, she made it to the last stretch of the C!

She made me proud and sad at the same time.  I'm sad that she is growing up and not a baby anymore, but more importantly, she makes me proud everyday!

We like this flash-card set, it's a great tool for a two-year-old.

[This was not a review or paid sponsorship, just something I like!]

This is great, just what I need for my 2 1/2 yr old son. We are heading to the lake for a week and this will be new and exciting and he will be learning. Thanks for the review!
