Z has shown interest for letters recently. She points at them and says “ssss” or “ooooo” or “iiiii” depending on what she sees. Since I have a parental leave day, I decided to make her an alfabet. Well, we first spent the day and lunch out with good friends of us and while she was sleeping, I made the letter collection, both for French and swedish.
When I was au-pair, the kids I was taking care of went to a preschool working with Montessori method. The Montessori method views the child as one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. It attempts to develop children physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively.
I don’t pretend to learn Z how to read now, but she shows interest, so I want to encourage her to explore. Let’s see if it will work!
