My oldest daughter, Cakes, just celebrated her 100th day of school on Friday. It’s crazy how fast kindergarten is flying by and all of the new skills she’s learned or is working on.
The most exciting educational developments is her newfound ability to read! She’s not an expert reader by any means at this age, but she’s definitely picking things up and starting to figure out how to put all of this new information together.
One way I’m trying to reinforce her love of learning, reading, and books is to make learning fun. Drilling with flashcards works for some kids, but making learning more fun and interactive by creating games or offering incentives leaves more of an impression with Cakes.
Cakes has already mastered a lot of the beginner sight words, but we see her guessing a lot too. Especially when she jus glances at a word and sees similar beginning or ending sounds. Encouraging her to sound out words and not guess has become a struggle during our daily reading.
