My daughter is 3 1/2 she has only been in daycare for a couple months when she was 1 years old, I cannot afford to keep her in daycare so I am a stay at home mom. She is not in Pre-k right now because she is born in December so she was not 4 by Sept 1st. I try to practice with her and my niece everyday on the things they would be learning while in pre-k or daycare, so they are not behind, and my daughter is picking it up very well. She currently knows all her Alphabet, can recognize every letter without getting stuck on any, knows all her letter sounds, and just last night randomly she she tells me "A (aah), AS IN Apple, B (buh) as in Ball...G (guh) as in Grape, and I (ih) as in Igloo. The igloo one really suprised me because we normally practice I is for Icecream. Mind you, I have only been religiously practicing with them in the recent month since the school season has started, but she has always been really into learning. Well my question is, is this normal to pick it up this fast? Because she is doing extremely well for not being in any school and for her age.
