Both my older girls attended 4 years of pre-school. Alycia started pre-school just after her 3rd birthday and Sherilyn at 3.5 years old. Sherilyn is in her last year of pre-school this year. For Baby, I’ve decided to delay sending her to pre-school until she turns 4yo next year. If you are a die-hard reader of my blogs, you will know that Baby still has a minor urinary problem despite having gone through 2 traumatic major surgeries in 2009. Only time will heal the entire urinary tract and I hope that by the time she turns 4yo, the problem will resolve by itself.
I’ve made up my mind that I will teach Baby her ABCs and how to read at home. Since I don’t have the time to prepare materials, the easiest means is the internet. I now teach her ABCs and reading from www.starfall.com. Starfall is by far the best website to teach your child to read…. and that’s based on HFM’s review ok 😛
Sherilyn can spend the whole afternoon reading from Starfall on the new laptop I got the girls and she never seems to get bored.
See how deeply engrossed she is here…
While Baby loves learning her ABCs from the computer, I have to nudge myself to spare my time to teach her at least every other day. Once we are in it, she needs at least half an hour to an hour before she’s satisfied. Sometimes I just can’t afford to allocate my time to her. Yeah I know I know, I must prioritize my list of to-dos. Nothing is more important than my Baby recognizing her ABCs and learning to read.
