Starting J2 on literacy

Starting J2 on literacy

J2 has been growing in leaps and bounds… literally. His vocabulary has suddenly expanded and his repertoire of songs have also increased exponentially. Woah. Sometimes he even surprises me with new songs and interesting lyrics. 

Today, I took out J1’s ABC book and started running through the letters with him. He took such a personal interest in letters and started tracing them with his fingers. Correct strokes of writing doesn’t matter to me as much as instilling the keenness to pick up the alphabet. 

He took to the colourful pictures drawn on every page to help remember an example of an object that started with a particular letter. That made his experience enriched!

There will be many more of such teachable moments to come, and as much as he enjoyed the process today, I too was savouring this precious time spent. 

Growing up years are simply so short; if time is whiled away without intentional instruction, I will live to regret it one day.
