And we identify things, tell numbers, play with alphabets.

The lady of the house is back to reading books big time. Yesterday night she had the Mickey clubhouse book series (some 12 of them) with her. She read each one of them, identifying things in each page.
The book has the disney characters doing some stuff , going on trips, some animals , teaches colors ,shapes, etc.. etc... And so this is how madam read it out to me from one of the books where each one is preparing something for the party.
Minnie and plate and mummam (food).
Goofy and corns and clock. ( the clock was in the background of the main pic).
Daisy and pineapple
Donald and lemons and clock.
Mickey and red car and park.
Then she proceeds to ask me to identfy shapes. Each correct answer evokes a "Coooooorect ' and claps from her ;).
Oh and she counts from 1 to 20 but always skips 12 .
she tells all the alphabets A to Z and skips U.
Each time she is consistent in missing 12 and U. When askes she replies- Oh , I dont like them , so I wont say them .
The other thing she likes to play is with associating words with alphabets. For each alphabet, I make a dum-sharads like action and she identifies them .
It is good to see the kid observing at her environment and applying them at home.
It is fun going back to the basics and learning once again with your daughter ;))
