What tool do you use? I was a school teacher and enjoyed teaching. For years I have taught my own children at home. I entered a homeschooling group and they dont teach their children really anything....coming from a teacher view point. One lady I know taught her children how to read by using Frontline Phonics. I personally have my own teaching methods and various tools, methods and theories. I start my children at 6 months. They are all advanced and have recieved dozens of rewards and even the major gave my daughter a reward. With four children I have learned that they all learn differently. So what is youre take.
*I dont care for the type of mothers views who sit at home all day, on the computer, dont cook, dont clean and just lazy.
*I dont care to hear the views of mothers who dont teach.
*Learn through play is ok, just no bashing
If you would like to teach just send me a direct reply & I can help you out

My son is 20 months old and he knows his alphabet, can spell some three letter words, knows some colors, numbers up to 5, and can spell daddy. I teach him using the same method my mother taught me. I use index cards and spend about an hour a day working at it. I write each letter on a different index card and then mix them up and he reads them off to me. He can't say his alphabet in order yet ( only up to E) but he can look at anything with words or letters written on it and tell you what letters are on it and he will point them out to you. We also play a lot of music all the time during our learning time and I think that may help him a little as well, it calms him down and helps him focus. Plus there is a TON of praise involved. Colors and numbers are done roughly the same way.
