Alphabet, Spelling, Phonics, Reading……

Jacob really seems to have a fascination with letters lately! I admit that he talks A LOT and is hitting his language milestones very ahead of what is considered normal and people often comments that he “talks like a big man”. When I say that he talks A LOT…I mean A LOT! Just the other day he was in the car with my mother and I and he basically talked from the time we got in until the time we got out…..”you will drive in your seat nana?”…..”we will go to the restaurant mama?”….”the car will park in the parking lot”…”we will go in restaurant and all sit down”….Basically you get your step by step directions about what’s going to happen from Jacob! Everywhere we go Jacob needs to read letters on signs, on boxes, on stores, on license plates, on buses! Jacob pretty much knows the entire alphabet and can pronounce the letters pretty clearly now and thanks to our favourite show Super Why he’s learning to sound out words and recognize the sounds that all the letters make! I love this show and highly recommend it if you are going to allow your children to watch TV…the entire showis about Words, Letters, Spelling, Phonics, Reading etc. I’ve got to say that I’ve never imagined that this day would come so quickly…that I could converse in full conversations with my toddler and actually understand what he’s saying! I’m impressed!

  1. Ani was speaking in full sentences very early, too. It’s kind of fascinating to “see” into the toddler world through conversation with them since so many of them can’t do it yet. Fritz just hit a language explosion this week but he’s not yet to full out conversation. His sentences are longer and more interesting now, though.
