  • My kid knew to count to three before he was two, and learned to count to ten by 2 1/2, after which he learned all his ABC's and some colors and shapes as well as some animals and their sounds. He'll be three at the end of the year. ABC's are his favorite, though, he'd do that all day if I let him.

  • hmm... idk exactly which my 2nd dd (3.5) mastered first, she's been learning about all of them at the same time, she's known her alphabet for about a year but just recently (last 4months or so) has been able to consistently say it fully and correctly. she's got numbers 1-10 down but sometimes says em in the wrong order or skips a few, and she is a PRO at colors and numbers and probably has been for the last year or even longer. She LOVES shapes actually and tries to find shapes or make shapes everywhere and out of everything :D
