Next steps in maths by Doman: fractions, the older the baby, the more challenging it gets  (Maja is 13,5 months old)

How to teach your baby maths
RED DOTS AND MATHS ACCORDING TO DOMAN

FRACTIONS

Yeah…I am crazy enough to start fractions with a 13-month-old toddler. It’s hard to believe it works but I am still experimenting with it. The question arises again how long this step should last and if I should ask Maja any questions or maybe just present the cards.

May 2017 – We have completed next steps of global reading, maths and enriching baby’s vocabulary following the principles of the Doman method (Maja is 13 months old)

Teaching a baby maths

We have completed the following two stages:

  • three-word expressions
The Doman sight-reading
Three-word phrases
  • four-word expressions and short sentences (we are “reading” longer and more complex sentences now)

May 2017 – vocabulary of a bilingual child supported by the Doman method, more words (Maja is 13 months old)

Bilingual baby and first words

A 13-MONTH-OLD BABY – VOCABULARY

  Yeah….a 13-month-old baby and we have a whole set of new words. It seems bilingualism doesn’t cause a speech delay. I have already made a list of Maja’s first words which is to be found here. 

  To tell you the truth, my baby speaks…”Chinese” most of the time: words, sentences and even whole monologues in her own language. We often have a chit-chat during which I pretend I understand her and give her answers in English. Then, she replies in her own language.

Playtime with the Doman method (Maja is 13 months old)

Nauka czytania przez zabawę

LEARNING THROUGH PLAY WITH THE DOMAN METHOD

I have read three books by Glenn Doman and I can summarize his method this way: we show 5 word cards as quickly as possible and we praise a child loudly expressing a sincere joy while doing this. This is what one session looks like. It doesn’t matter if we have 5 reading cards or maths cards or bits of intelligence cards for developing encyclopedic knowledge.

The Doman method with daddy- whole-word reading in the Polish language (Maja is 12 months old

Reading with Glenn Doman

WHY NOW AND NOT EARLIER?

I must admit that Polish reading cards were not on my mind at all when I was buying maths and English reading cards. It just happened that maths cards came with the Polish reading cards. This was my incentive to introduce Doman’s reading programme also in Polish – my native language.

Our morning routine with books in English (Maja is 11,5 months old)

Reading to a baby

OLD BOOKS, NEW IDEAS – THE FUN GOES ON AS I READ TO MY BABY

As I have mentioned in Must-have section, we have had our morning routine with books for a long time. These have been all kinds of books for kids, not only typical fairy tales. As a result of my idea to raise my child bilingually (intentional bilingualism), I use English only when reading to Maja.

Why have I started using the Doman method with my child? What is my goal?

Fun with the Doman method

MY GOAL IS TO HAVE FUN AND TO DEVELOP MY BABY’S INTELLIGENCE

 I have to admit I will be really happy if my experiment is successful. However, I know that every child is different and I respect this. And, most of all, I never push my child to learn. I just try to stir up her curiosity and have fun with my baby.

March 2017 – next step in global reading programme based on the Doman method: two-word expressions (Maja is 11 months old)

Global reading with Doman

OLD WORDS IN A NEW FORM

  We can treat this step of the reading programme as a revision because it is based on the single words we have already used. However, according to Glenn Doman it is not a typical revision. It is just the next step in global reading:  two-word expressions.
