Devin's academic progress has really been impressing us lately! He has taken a liking to letters and sounds and is really catching on quickly. Just tonight during his bath as he was playing with his foam letters I was asking him loads of questions.
Mom: Devin what sound does 'bear' begin with?
Devin: B like Boden! (*we did several more beginning sound examples at this time)
Mom: And what does 'duck' begin with?
Devin: dddd D like Devin!
Mom: Very good! How do you spell Devin? What comes first?
Mom: Yup. And then what?
Mom: Great job Devin! Now how do you spell 'bus' ?
Devin: Bbbbuuuussss. B-u-s. Bus.
Mom: Yes! Okay and how do you spell 'Hi' ?
Devin: Hi. H-i. Hi. *Devin can also write Hi (his first written word).
Erick and I are so proud of our boy, whose brain is like a little sponge just absorbing everything around him! I write this, though, not to brag, but to preserve these memories and milestones.
