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.

Doing roots with a baby

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

TEACH YOUR BABY MATHS

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 decided we would manage to do these although nothing had changed in Maja’s attitude.

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

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.
