Teaching my little girl phonics!

Amanda - posted on 07/02/2014 ( 1 mom has responded )




I've been teaching my daughter phonics since she was 2 or so, and I stay at home, but I wanted more things to do with her so I started to look at apps that were educational that we could do together. Recently I found this ABC Phonics app that I am loving! My girl does really well with them but I like to reiterate to her, and she seems like she is having fun with it! It's something we can do together, and the songs even get stuck in my head ha ha
Have any of you tried to app? I'm looking for feedback from other moms to see if I should continue using this app or if there are similar apps I could look at.
Really appreciate it!

Honestly, I would try to spend as little time using screens and computers as possible. Focus on human interaction.

Go to the library and read books together to expand her vocabulary. Go places and do things to expand her general knowledge. Have her help you with chores and errands and talk about what you do. Find math in everyday activities - matching when you put away socks, counting when you set the table, fractions when you share food.

Two things that are very strongly correlated with later academic success are the ability to rhyme and an early understanding of fractions. Both are best explored with real world examples and human interaction.
