Oh yea, we are returning to Aa for review. Knowing ABCs before doesn’t mean that they will know it forever. We still need to repeat to them again and again so that they really do remember what they have learnt previously. In other words, repeated experience helps children against forgetting. Even for adults, when we learn any new skill, from playing the piano to playing badminton, it requires repeated practice. To your child, every new skill he/she learns; repetition is the way of remembering how to perform it or use it the next time.
Counting apples and later buttons filled “apple” tree!
We had done reading, counting, decorating, tracing, etc…what else do we do next? Well, its motor skill time with the scissor. I had printed out some pictures not only starting with letter Aa but also pictures that start with other letters too. Now is for her to find out which picture is suppose to go on the huge letter Aa mat.
So, are you able to identify what are the learning opportunities involved here? Here’s the list, the activities allowed your child to:
– recognise letter Aa
– train his/her hand-eye coordination and control
– increase his/her creativity and imagination
– problem solving
– train his/her fine motor skills
– train his/her phonemic awareness
Hope you had a great time learning with us too!
