Sharlene Can Spell

Sharlene learns how to spell by looking at books and flashcards. Now she is able to spell quite a number of words by memory, most of it are 3 and 4-letter words like dog, cat, toy, egg, shop, fish, goat, kite, etc.

EGG is the first word she learnt to spell. And egg is also her favorite food..haha!

I used to teach her by showing her a picture with word, and then I point to the word and spell it out for her. After doing this with her for a few times, I will start to test her by asking "Sharlene, how to spell the word ....." without showing her the picture or words. I’m just so happy each time she knows how to spell a word correctly. :D I will correct her if she didn’t get it right at first.

Last night, she was meddling with her set of flashcards in my bedroom. After I came out from the bathroom, I sat beside her and randomly picked up a card (with a picture of xylophone) and I asked her how to spell the word xylophone. To my surprise, she spelt out the 9-letter word accurately! Sometime ago, I’ve taught her to spell this word. But frankly, I didn’t expect her to get it right as yesterday was the first time I tested her on this. Maybe, she’d learnt this in school. But anyhow, I was really glad she knows and praised her for getting the spelling right. Hopefully her interest in learning will never come to an end.

Bravo, Sharlene!

Mummy is a happy and beaming Mummy!

Need to get her more reading materials and flashcards since she is showing interest in spelling. Does Sharlene watch 'Word World' on Disney Playhouse? It is a good programme for children who likes spelling.
