Mine kind of ‘pffd’ at the flashcards and did this instead– climbing on a chair and getting into trouble. I guess she likes ‘hands on’ learning better!
My older kid LOVED flash cards. Now don’t get me wrong, we didn’t sit for hours and quiz her. It was like a game. Oh look, what’s this letter? Okay you got it right, so you get to hold it. Oops nope you didn’t know that one, so I got to keep it. Once I figured out what she knew, I’d give her six and have her name them. It actually worked out quite well. 5 minutes tops and maybe twice a week. Seems like B here doesn’t comply with that sort of thing. She randomly has learned letters from our alphabet books being read to her, and I suspect from Super Why! on PBS. What little time I got her to ‘play’ with me, she had 6 mixed case letters that she knew. Awesome! I do want to work with her, though, so I think I’ll start with the cards and see if she will play ‘the game’ with me and name any of them later this week.
