Memory Tested

Just like a computer memory, Jens’ has been tried and tested. I know the memory of kids his age is like sponge to water. It sucked up all that it can. And The Tatapilla excels in that department.

The first test, so far.

He likes watching In The Night Garden. I recorded at least 6 episodes now and we play it almost every day. Before he goes to sleep (if he is not reading) or right when he wakes up during weekdays and anytime during weekends. One night, when the program started he was reciting the poem along with the telly. Not every word of it but I know that he memorise it and can say it if only he can. He’s not in that stage yet.

Sometimes, I would recite the poem and let him fill-in the blanks. It is fun.
