First sentences of a bilingual child supported by the Doman method (Maja is 17 months old)

FURTHER SPEECH DEVELOPMENT IN A BILINGUAL BABY

 

This is already the fifth blog entry that sums up Maja’s speech development. It is getting more and more interesting. The results of non-native bilingualism which is sometimes called intentional bilingualism are well beyond my expectation. While browsing the Internet I came across such terms as “artificial bilingualism” or “limited bilingualism” but they have negative connotations to me.

The Doman method and the Polish language – illustrated cards, my reflections on the method (Maja is 16,5 months old)

ILLUSTRATED CARDS IN THE DOMAN METHOD


I have mentioned recently that I decided against introducing digits in two languages simultaneously because our baby is really interested in her reading programme in Polish and I don’t want to interfere with maths. The problems with her attention span after she learnt to climb the furniture have passed.

Going beyond Doman’s ideas with teaching maths to a baby – introducing roots (Maja is 16 months old)

TEACH YOUR BABY MATHS

ROOTS

This all Doman stuff must sound crazy to you and it sounds crazy to me, too. However, I do not belong to a group of traditional mums and I need something more so I decided to give it a try. I am really curious to know if it really works. Being a crazy and, at the same time, well-organized mum I have already completed all Doman’s suggestions on teaching maths to a baby. What now? Let’s make it even crazier.

I have already gone beyond Doman’s ideas – I introduced percentages. Let’s do roots now. It certainly won’t do any harm because I can’t imagine how looking at maths may be harmful. Certainly, it will stimulate my baby’s brain contributing to its growth.

15,5-month-old baby: books, books and more books in English and in Polish (July 2017)

Babies want to learn to read

SURROUNDED WITH  BOOKS

Some time ago I mentioned our morning routine with a book. A lot has changed since ten. The reason for that is that Maja is a bit older and I know it won’t be possible for me to read a book to her in the morning from September (I am coming back to work). What is more, I got inspired by the blog entry on another blog which I follow. It is a Polish blog but if you know the Polish language I recommend you to read the whole article because I have just summarized the main points.

Developing mathematical and logical intelligence with the Doman method, another summary of a speech development in my baby (Maja is 15,5 months old)

PERCENTAGES  WITH A BABY

I have completed all Doman’s suggestions as far as teaching maths to a baby is concerned. But don’t worry – this is not the end. Doman encourages parents to be creative and to follow their imagination when it comes to all sorts of ideas related to dot flashcards. I have assumed that if fractions can be taught using dot cards we can use them to teach lots of other mathematical stuff like percentages, roots and exponents or powers …. and maybe I will come up with something else.

July 2017 – simple algebra with a baby, enriching a baby’s vocabulary and a whole-word reading programme with self-made books (Maja is 15 months old)

Maths by Doman

MATHS

SIMPLE ALGEBRA WITH A VARIABLE QUANTITY REPRESENTED BY A LETTER

Since my last post we have completed the last of Doman’s suggestions – equations with a variable.  Following his suggestion included in the book „How to Teach Your Baby Math,” I replaced the letter “x” commonly used as a variable with the letter “y.” This was necessary because the letter “x” is similar to the multiplication sign and this may confuse a baby.  Continue reading “July 2017 – simple algebra with a baby, enriching a baby’s vocabulary and a whole-word reading programme with self-made books (Maja is 15 months old)”

IT’S REAL FUN TO LISTEN TO A 14-MONTH-OLD SPEAKING 

I am proud to present the third blog entry summarizing speech development in my little Maja. She has begun saying more new words. You can read about her first words here:  Continue reading “Speech development in a bilingual child supported by the Doman method: more words (Maja is 14,5 months old)”

Maths can be fun

WHOLE-WORD READING PROGRAMME BY DOMAN

WE HAVE OFFICIALLY COMPLETED ALL THE SIGHT WORDS FLASHCARDS

In the previous post I said that I had started doing less and less daily “sessions,” which also means having less and less cards per day. After a few days we were left with 3 sets, 5 cards in each instead of our usual 4 sets. I decided we would manage to do these although nothing had changed in Maja’s attitude.  Continue reading “All sight words flashcards completed, maths continued with the analysis of number personalities, introduction of personalized books (Maja is 14 months old)”
