kaira's development

is it because she's my child that i find her very intelligent??? LOL.

or maybe it's just the norm in toddlers these days? (^,^)

anywayz, some weeks back, i started her on a phonics DVD by BBC. she doesn't watch it every day. maybe a few times a week. and after a few times, i realise that she can identify which alphabets the word begins with. she doesn't get it right all the time. but still, i am quite blown away by this simple alphabet identification. is the DVD that good??? or are kids such great sponges that a simple "push" can elevate them to great heights.

2 weeks ago, the laptop which i let her use exclusively broke down which means that she wasn't watching the DVD for one whole week until mid last week when i grudgingly let her use my laptop ;p

today, we were having noodles for lunch, she suddenly said to me "N for noodles mama". I am quite sure i have never taught her that. so it must be the effect of the phonics DVD. :) then she started rattling off some other words and what alphabets they begin with.

i hope she continues to enjoy learning and expressing herself!

In terms of Chinese, she can now identify the following chinese words 妈妈, 爸爸, 哥哥, 弟弟, 姐姐, 妹妹, 吃, 喝. and the following words, she sometimes still get them wrong : 火车, 家, 花, 大, 小. i must admit that i am getting abit lazy teaching her these days. must buck up!

so there, that's what she's been up to these days.
