I’m not one to sit Addison in front of the TV often…in fact I’m very strict on how much TV I allow her to watch. Part of her routine though is that she is able to watch a 30 minute video before bedtime every night. Last Christmas we bought her a Leap Frog 3 Pack DVD’s. She wasn’t interested in them at the time because she was in her “Dora” phase but the last couple months she’s been choosing to watch Leap Frog every night before bed. The three DVD’s in the set are “Let’s Go to School” “Talking Words Factory” and “Letter Factory.” She always watches these so quietly and you can tell she is soaking up the information.
So the other night she grabbed a letter off of her art easel…it happened to be the letter “R.” She turned to me and said this letter makes the “RRRR” sound. I was surprised and shocked. I told her to pick another letter and tell me the sound. She chose the letter “T” and made the “T” sound. She also relates the letters to the correlating word shown in the movie. So if she sees the letter “P” she’ll say its sound then say “Popcorn”, “S” Snake, “C” Cold, etc. At this point she may not know all the letter’s names by sight but she knows their sounds and words associated with that letter and I contribute it to these Leap Frog movies. I’m definitely impressed!!
