Alhamdulillah, starting from today, my 3 years and 3 months old toddler; KiruaMi-cHan is an independent reader! *yeay*
His second book is; Book 1b – Peter and Jane. Subhanallah, I am truly amazed!
Last night, he could hardly wait to read the Book 1b by his own.
He managed to read and kept saying “I love to read book, mama” & “Mama, I want to read all night long”
He finished 30 pages by his own! *Oh God, thank you for such a lovely moment for both of us*
After his reading time, he willing to teach his little sister; ReiHi-cHan.
She looked so happy by having his brother as a mentor.
Oh yes, today I would like to share something 😉
Here are a few things that you can do to help build your child’s literacy skills:
- Encourage your children to join in while you read.Pause to let them fill in a rhyming word or repeating line: I’ll huff and I’l puff . . .!
- Ask open-ended questions, such as What do you think is going to happen next? or Why do you think he did that?
- Move your finger under the words as you read aloud. This helps toddlers connect printed words to spoken words.
- Begin teaching the letters of the alphabet, starting with those in your child’s name. Make letter-learning fun with markers, magnets, glue, and glitter.
Try introducing the following types of books to your child:
- Knowledge book (encyclopedia, maps)
- Pattern books with rhymes and repetition
- Simple stories with predictable plots
- Concept books, such as counting and A-B-C books
So mommies, best of luck. And remember; reading is FUN! 😉
