Independent Reader

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!

Book 1b - Peter and Jane

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! 😉
