My son can sing the whole alphabet along with the alphabet song, and most of it if you start him, and prompt him occasionally by himself (EG I say ABCD, he goes E-P, I say QRS, he goes T-X, I say Y, and he says Z). He pretends to spell (favorite "spelling" letters being A, B, I, O, E, and S)...and he knows things like "A is for Apple", but if you ask him "Which letter is this?" (with no pictures) he only gets it right about 45% of the time.
I'm also wondering how long it takes to get the colors right? He knows all the words for the colors (and has for a long time now), but he frequently calls colors the wrong name (green, being his favorite guess).
I don't want to know an "age", because my son doesn't seem to fit in those "Milestone" age charts. I want to know something like, "It took my kid six weeks to learn..."
Any feedback would be great!
My oldest was recognizing all of her letters with 100% accuracy a little before she turned 2. At 3 she was reading words by recognizing words by the order the letters appeared (sort of like memorizing). Now at 4 she reads fully with phonetics.
She knew colors and shapes at about 15 months with 90% accuracy. She did get caught up on the purple/blue and blue/black. If the shades were similar she would sometimes confuse them, but it was normal. By the time she was 2 she was at 100% accuracy.
