It really works! These flashcards are different from anything else I have used. Kids love them and are eager to repeat the routine of snuggling, flipping the cards, listening to the little tune. Give them a try!
I recently spent 12 days with my 17 month old. Every day we did the ABC flashcards and videos for as long as his attention span would allow. We added in the numbers, shapes, and colors. Then we added a few simple books. His attention span lengthened. He would eagerly run to me and it became our bonding time. I didn’t see him again for 2 months when we visited for another 3 days where we repeated the routine, adding Dr. Seuss and poetry. At first he appeared not to understand, but 2 months later, my daughter showed me him playing with his magnetic letters where he was running to the phone to show me the letters and saying their names and repeating, f is for fish! He can barely talk at 19 months, but he’s starting to read!
Also, the youngsters at church gather around me, eager to learn the ABCs. My lap isn’t big enough! With sing-songing, I created a rhythm that the kids came to expect. It’s all about repetition, warmth and love.
