This weeks word of the week is learn, Daisy is in her final weeks of nursery and will be starting full time school in September. She is learning so many new skills to help her on her journey through primary school.
This week she asked Daddy how to spell some words and preceded to write them down herself on her sketch board. I think the process of learning to write is amazing and Daisy seems to have embraced it full force, she loves phonics and I’m hoping she will love the written word as much as I do.
A reading book has also been a staple feature of our week, I so enjoy listening to her sounding out the words and recognising them, it makes me excited to think of all the books she is yet to read especially the ones I loved as a child. I spent a lot of my childhood with my nose stuck in a book and I think Daisy will too.
I think the best way to teach a child is to make it fun for them to learn and I also believe that every child learns at their own pace, the best thing we can do as parents is to offer our children space and encouragement on their learning journeys and not stress too much about the rest.
I’m linking up with Jocelyn at The Reading Residence for Word of the Week.
