Baby, show your palm.
We count a little.
You can simply count –
One, two, three, four, five.
This daughter and I learned to her first anniversary.
Mental development of five years
I never ceased to wonder how quickly she grows up. Only recently from the arena of agukala, and now he retells in detail the cartoon he saw. She had obediently memorized poems and counts before. But, only stepping over the 5-year-old frontier, she began to repeat the songs she heard, advertising slogans and phrases from children’s films.
Her vocabulary increased with each passing day. And she didn’t just repeat the words, but learned to make sentences correctly. Of course, I heard that at this age, kids remember the bulk of the information. Therefore, having noticed her interest in new knowledge, I began to devote much more time to our studies.
Playfully, we learned the numbers and initial elements of arithmetic. Successfully mastered the alphabet and tried their hand at spelling. I began to notice in her the makings of an actor – she could express such a complex range of feelings with gestures and movements. Successfully parodied the behavior of friends and so skillfully could pretend to be asleep …
I also noticed how mature, she learned to behave in society. How willingly she shared her acquired knowledge with other guys. Now she didn’t just play with affordable toys – these were role-playing games. She played up real life situations that she witnessed recently.
Playing with my baby, I got tired much faster than her. She could tirelessly wear a whirlwind in the yard the whole day. I invented fun for the development of motor coordination, taught to jump with a rope, ride a bike. In fact, she already knew how to skate, but my husband and I decided that it was time to remove the auxiliary wheels and teach the baby to keep balance.
This skill took her only one day. Watching her progress, I bought children’s videos and a protection kit (helmet, knee pads, gloves). I thought it would take a lot of time to master them. But my daughter surprised me again – on the very first day she put on rollers, rode a little, holding onto the walls of the house and … went.
She is now 11 years old, but roller skating has remained her favorite entertainment.
What did your kids like at that age?
