I'm not quite sure how it happened. I think magical little elves sneak into my children's bedrooms at night and whisper phonics sounds into their ears. But for what it's worth I've managed to turn my children into literate human beings.
(psst...that means they know how to read.)
So I'm on my very last child and I LIVE phonics right now. It's all about learning new letters and practicing words that have the same sound.All. Day. Long.
I say a letter and then Gabe has to come up with words that start with the phonetic sound for that letter.
And it's so different using phonics with my dauther..
P is for princess and pink and pretty.
But boys, ahhh them boys, they are so different.
Gabe's phonics practice went like this today.
B is for boogers
F is for fart.
D is for dirty dog
S is for snot
I'm so happy to be educating the young minds of the future.
