All mommies want their babies to be the smartest and the smartest. To do this, try to quickly teach them to read. And the letters are not given to children. How to be? Comes to the aid of the alphabet of dough and color dragee.
I peeped such an original method of teaching the alphabet on the Internet.
I was very surprised by the results that the children gave when they were engaged in cooking with their mother. I decided to try. Something added on my own. That’s what came out of it:
1. Letters from dough.
I started learning from the age of 3. I do not think that children should be taught literacy from the cradle, it is better to approach this process at a more conscious age.
Therefore, 3 years was marked in our house by buying the alphabet. Children looked at the new pictures with curiosity, studied the animals. But it did not go further. Remember A and D, and the desire to learn from them is lost. I had to put patience and imagination.
I did not prepare a special dough, I just took the children to the table to help me.
I love to cook cookies of various shapes, so I have many molds for little animals, mushrooms and gnomes. At first I squeezed the cookies and called the figures.
Then she switched to the initial letters of these words. They remembered that BEAR begins with M, the word Fish – with R.
We sculpted the worms. Put them in letters, then in words.
The training was very entertaining and after six months the children could independently mold a letter from dough or clay.
2. Then go to the course pasta. This is an excellent material for creativity. From short macaroni we folded letters and syllables.
I did not burden children with learning speed, my priorities were quality.
3. Chocolate and color dragee became another excellent material.
Ona not only liked the children by color, but also by taste.
The incentive prize, for successfully composed words, was the absorption of candy.
The children sat down to study with pleasure, knowing that they were in for a smart, tasty evening.
4. You can learn the alphabet on the street.
You can add letters from any twigs, draw them on the sand, lay out words from small pebbles.
My kids loved to draw with a stick on the ground.
And still in the course were colored chalk. For a whole year, our yard was a complete album.
Today they are 5 and they read and know the letters very well. But we came to this through play, fantasy and creativity. It was interesting for them to learn literacy using all their senses.
In this, I think, lies our secret to quickly and pleasantly learning the alphabet.
And what did you use to teach the child the alphabet?
