HI my name is Kayla and My son was born on the 19th of October. I am so proud of him because he can identify his colors, say his abc's and numbers, and knows all of his animals and what sounds they make. I want to teach him more though, I was wandering if anyone has tryed the "My Baby Can Read" Series of books and if they had good results. Thank you

Your son has the same birthday as my son! :-)

I haven't tried that particular series, but we are working on letter identification and reading right now., So far my son has learned to ID all the upper-case letters, go from left to right when spelling out a word, and knows a few sound-spelling relationships. The best tool I've used is a simple set of alphabet blocks. We sit at the table and play the "spelling game" for fifteen minutes or so, three or four times a week. We mostly spell short words for things he likes, that are familiar to him.

I just checked out "Phonics from A to Z, a Practical Guide" by Wiley Blevins from the library. It has a lot of games and ideas.

We are going to start "the writing game" soon, because according to the book, writing practice is a great way for kids to get solid on letter identification. I just posted a blog entry of rhymes that I composed to help my son with writing letters, here it is in case you are interested:

No I havent tried the Your Baby Can Read cirriculum but what you're doing right now is just as good. My 2 y/o also knows most of his numbers, letters and some animals. I also teach him sign language bc he is trying to talk but is having a hard time pronouncing it so we sign. Its so much easier!! Sorry i'm not much more help.
