Lessons at home: Writing

on February 21, 2011

Buchi knows how to type his name and some words, so he asks me what’s the point in writing. For now he doesn’t understand its use. So we’re trying our best to show him that writing is a fun activity. No pressure, just taking one step at a time.

My mom suggested that we draw circles and lines first before I formally introduce writing letters. I think it was an awesome idea.

Today we officially started writing lessons. I let Buchi write big O’s and small O’s. We did this for 15 minutes. We had a watch beside us so that he was aware of the time. He did pretty good. He wrote about 40 O’s.

We also read two books today and he ‘read’ the first three pages. (He memorized these parts already).

He was really proud of himself.
