While many toddlers love Youtube, Yvette doesn’t find it fantastic. When we are on Computer, I always try to introduce her songs, music, stories over Youtube but she will always suggest Starfall. (A free learning software I started to do with her when she was 21 mths.) She loves Starfall more. And I love Starfall as well. This free software over the internet really helps Yvette in learning letters and she started to pick up reading via Starfall too.
At 2 yo, Yvette learns all the letters, including their sound via Starfall – ABCs Let’s get ready to read. I will say this software is FREE and GOOD. And now we moved on learning more sound via this platform and Yvette absolutely loving it.
I like the way the word is taught by this software under the Learn to Read – Teaching word using Phonics (sound). With that, I am inspire to make a set of learning card for Yvette to learn and play game with me.
And our learning will not be completed without reading a book. I am using Usborne Phonics Readers which is highly recommended in one of Singapore Motherhood spree I joined months back.
There again, our learning will be too dry and not so interesting to Yvette if I only rely on my learning material only. I brought in LeapFrog Fridge Words magnetic word builder so that Yvette could hear those word from the toy and make our learning more lively.
Yvette has yet shown much more interest in this new curriculum. She is more interested in playing with those cards I made. But she does like the book that we been reading for the past 3 weeks and she could recognise word like “Mat”, “Fat” (she already know “Cat”) after this kick off.
