Harvard Here I Come!

Posted in Buggle Bite, Parenting at 8:38 pm by Momma

I should have probably included this with this months The Buggle Times, but it was getting lengthy and I kinda forgot at the time…

One of Daddy’s clients this summer told him about this website that his wife uses to help teach her ESL students English. His little 15 month old daughter also took a liking to it and her speech and vocabulary really took off after using it regularly.

So of course wanting to waste no time, Momma and Buggle have been logging on every night and practicing our letters. The Buggle loves the colors, songs and animation. The site is free and has a variety of levels from basic letters and sounds, all the way to advanced reading.

C is for Cat!

The Buggle’s witching hour begins right around 6:15 pm where nothing seems to make him happy. So we have started making this our letter time, and most nights he will sit and watch the screen for 20-30 minutes. He even reaches for and tries to type on the keyboard. So cute! πŸ™‚

Most mornings after he eats and is still kinda waking up for the day is our story time. We read board and fabric books, the ones with the really thick pages. After I am done reading the pages I will lift my thumb off the right side of the page so it pops up. That’s his cue to turn the page. He uses both hands to slam the page to the other side. He is so pleased with himself! He waits patiently until the next page pops up then does it all over again.

The Buggle is barely five months old and already on the road to the ivy league! After all, he is the SR, you know! (Right Auntie?)

    SR indeed….It’s a good thing too because the way this country is headed, we are gonna need the little SR to right all the wrongs by the time he’s old enough. I mean, seriously…no mail as a sign of mourning? Come on, people!
