As early as 4 months, we exposed Dindin to reading books. She would sit between my legs and together we would browse through the pages. Sometimes, she would flip the pages herself.
Eventually, reading became part of our nighttime routine, though we also read books during the day at times. She is also constantly exposed to words through her videos because sometimes words are flashed there and then the host would say the word out loud.
But when I would teach her to read her flash cards, it would seem that she is not listening. So I would stop and do it again another time. But she refused.
Today, however, when I asked her if she could read the words in the flashcards, she did! Here are some of the words she said:
3. arms up
4. arms down
14. colors (the word “colors”)
But these are not altogether, because she would run again and do her thing. She doesn’t seem to be listening pertaining to reading that is why we have never really drilled her into reading words.
Whenever we would take out the flash cards, she would do something else or change the subject. So we just let her be. Until today, she read the words clearly.
I am soooo happy. I hope that after this, I can get her to use her potty. lol
