Learning should be fun. While I know it can be challenging too, I’d like to make it as interesting and as enjoyable as possible especially for Riley. This is also the reason why our house is bursting with children’s books of all sorts and everyone at home, including our extended families, sing to nursery rhymes aka Riley’s Spotify playlist.
For some reason, Riley already knows the sounds of letters and the alphabet without being forced to learn or being reprimanded for mistakes. He also likes to chant the alphabet (in a singsong voice and sometimes with matching dance moves) to people he meets. That and counting backwards because he’s amused with rockets launching and he often sees it in elevators/traffic lights.
We try to make it a point to read to him before bed time (and during the day when time allows) and one thing I noticed is that learning 3 letter words are a bit challenging for Riley at the moment so I figured why not start with 2. I also don’t want him to forget about his mother tongue. These were the thoughts I had in mind when I was making this template. That and they need to be colorful. Mommy’s preference. *wink*
