Every day at breakfast, I walk up to the wall calendar anging behind the kitchen table. I do the date and the schedule.
Today, I pointed to and said the name of the day, then pointed to and had the kids sound out the letters spelling March, then pointed to and asked what number. Bunny quickly replied, "15!"
I knew she could count pretty high, but not to read numbers that high.
Raise the bar while having realistic expectations. That allows kids the opportunity to excel without having undue pressure on the child or the parent.
