Tot School - 18 months
Now that H knows almost all of his letter sounds, we've moved on to sight words. I know this sounds kind of silly for an 18 month old, but his entire face lights up when I take out his flashcards. I actually don't see this at all as teaching him to read, but rather as an exercise in pattern recognition. H's vocabulary and pronunciation of words that have different sounds has really improved lately, and I think some of this can be attributed to the sight words because he looks at my mouth as we say the words (usually when we read books together, he's in my lap). He recognizes about a dozen sight words like 'in', 'all', 'go', 'he', 'you', 'see', 'my', 'at', etc... and likes to play along when his older sisters (3.5 years old) are playing sight word games.
