A few days ago, The New Parent wrote an interesting article on strewing up…. a method of introducing new things to his little girl through discovery. I thought what a cool fun way of teaching Alycia and Sherilyn to read through discovery.
Yesterday when the gals were having their afternoon nap, I strewed flash cards around their room… one card in their mega blocks tub, two cards in their toys closet and one more card on their bed for them to discover.
Later that night, as they got into their room, they were so thrilled and surprised to see flash cards strewn everywhere. They thought mummy had forgotten to keep the flash cards back into the drawer. As they returned the cards to me, I read out the words and number on the flash cards to them. What fun way of teaching them to read. No coercion on them and they actually looked at the cards. Tonight, I shall strew a few more cards at different places in their rooms for them to discover.
These are some of the pix I managed to snapped candidly of Alycia and Sherilyn when they discovered the cards.
