I have written “we” on purpose because my daughter’s opinion is more important than mine. We differ and she often surprises me with her likes and dislikes. To give you an example, we have quite a plain book among all the others. When writing “plain” I refer to my first impression. My sister-in-law claimed her kids were crazy about it (Maja’s two cousins live in England) which surprised me. There are only three words in the whole book and it’s full of pictures.
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.
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.
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.
