For some reason, Aidan sometimes says "sh" rather than "s" (which makes reading Hairy Maclarey Sit amusing).
The other day in the car Isabelle was playing her version of "I spy", which uses the sound a letter makes rather than the name of the letter (phonics anyone?!). So "sh" is for shoe, "k" for car, etc. Anyway, she said:
"I spy something beginning with "w" "
"Window" I replied.
"No, it's below us!".
Isabelle has also been very interested lately in forming letters. She has noticed that some other children her age can do this - and has been annoyed when a friend of hers told her that she couldn't write. Last night, she copied letters from an alphabet book, doing a fair imitation, asking Brendon which letter went next in her chosen word.
I'm not really into teaching children to write before school, but I'm wondering if I should take some more time to help her with this, given that she is so interested.
