Counting

I know I've mentioned it before but The Girlies are doing really well counting. Rather Kathleen is getting better and Samantha is mimicking her sister. We have a set of flash cards that Kathleen can rattle off up to 13 with out a problem. The rest of the teens get her confused but once we get to twenty she is all ready to go again and she'll even count past the cards we have which tops out at 25 right now.

She's getting better at her letters but I don't know if it's actual recognition yet or not. Right now we are working in order as she has to learn their names and be able to say them. After we nail her letters and numbers in order I'll start shuffling them and maybe start picking up a book for her to go through each page with.

I did see a book for $25 on the tv the other day that might help. It wasn't one of those ones that had promises of making my child learn to read at an early age, while I did look at that, it just seemed kinda corny to me and I'm not sure that it really would work with my kiddos anyway. But this book is a flip book - it's a phonics book. You can set it to have a followed by t and then flip the first letter to make new words showing how the sounds work - bat, cat, fat, hat, mat, pat, rat, sat, vat. oat and eat would work too but they don't have the same AT sound lol. But it also comes with books and sing along DVDs that could help too. But this isn't something that she needs right now, as she doesn't recognize her letters yet. But soon, very soon I think.

I really need to look into preschools I guess. Maybe in half an hour or so when more things down here are open.
