I KNOW HOW!
A few weeks back Lil Muallimah gave me a BIG surprise. She asked if she could write on her mini blackboard while I was cooking. She then showed me:
I have to let you I HAVE NOT done any three letter word lessons with her. She wrote the word and said the sounds, showing OBVIOUS writing readiness. I was completely surprised and asked her if she knew what she wrote? She told the sounds/letters. Then I helped her read the word and praised her for writing CAT all by herslef. Mashallah !
She was pleased and her eyes glowed. Next she drew a cat.
Next she went on to write HAT and draw one too. Mashallah
This was definitely a reminder to me to work with her seriously on reading and writing skills as she READY and WAITING! So look out for our specialized lessons with Lil Muallimah.
Since then she has written these two words again and again and reading them too... :) Mashallah.......
