Learning Phonics

On The Tatapilla's 3rd birthday, we decided to teach him his alphabet, not just singing it but be able to identify and read it. I've been doing some research on what better way to teach our kids to read - and phonics come first. It's reading the letters through their sound. I found this Jolly Phonics dvd that are very good tools in teaching the kids. I then borrowed one from the library. The down side though is, it is a bit boring. And Jens as a very active kid, is not very drawn to it. Maybe, if we play it over and over again, he might. Besides, learning things don't just happen overnight like printing club flyers.

Here are some snippets of the DVD.
