The above pics are interesting to see. The boy is looking at a YBCR book in one picture. The kids did early learning with him too. He is the youngest member of British Mensa ever. In explaining their using EL with him, one of his parent's states

3  BrillKids Software / Tech Support / Little Musician demo version gives me run time error on: February 11, 2013, 06:33:28 PM
Dear Tech Support ,

I installed the Little Musician Trial Version and, when I tried to run it, I got a message saying "Unable to find a version of the runtime to run this application?" What do I do? I have a 14 day trial, but the Brillkids office is closed and time is running out. confused
4  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Re: teaching 2.5 year old to read - feeling stuck and demoralised on: September 21, 2011, 02:22:22 AM
I highly recommend that you download Funnix for Reading. It is just  a point and click program for you (since you are a tired mommy of an infant too). Just hold the baby in your lap and sit beside your daughter at the lunch table. You do the program with your daughter. It is sooo easy and gives a thorough grounding in phonics, even decoding so-called undecodable words with sight words. If you have a little extra time, then download those Flesch cards from Daddude, print them on cardstock, fold, glue and cut - don't even bother to laminate, just make sure her hands are clean. Use these with her and put your finger under each letter while sounding it out. These really helped my daughter. I did both slowly sounding them out and flashing them at her.
5  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Re: has anybody started flashin words for kids above 2/3years??? on: July 03, 2011, 06:48:33 PM
I flash cards at my 3 3/4 year old, but I do it within the scope of a phonics program. I printed out Daddude's cards and put them on key rings and I flash them this way. I also took the Fleschcard ppts (thank you to the lady who put these together!) without pics and added words from the Sing, Spell, Read and Write program we have. I flash the ppt at my daughter while we eat breakfast or lunch. I think it helps in her instant recognition of words, because the more she has seen it the more instant recall she has. But the phonics helps her develop strategies for sounding out unfamiliar words in the long run. I noticed that with strict flashing - I started YBCR too late - she started guessing at words and this is a big no no according to a lot of experts.

Hello Ruamulla,

What a nice surprise to see your mail. My daughter and I are joining my husband in Riyadh this Thursday! I am so excited. I have been cataloging her books and other educational materials to make sure that I can take as many as possible and stay within the weight limits. I would love to meet up with you and your son when we arrive. KM276 will also move to Riyadh soon. Hey, I think we have the makings of a Brillbaby meet up group  LOL . I will PM you when I arrive.

I think that it is a great idea! I have seen a similar idea in practice. I sent my little girl to such a preschool for two weeks while we were packing for our moving homes. The family lived on the top floor and rented out the bottom floor. They set up a barrier of a wooden trellis in the garden so that the kids stayed on one side and the family on another. The entrance was the same and I think that they put a door at the top of the staircase so that things were separate. It was a beautiful space consisting of two large rooms, a winter garden and a small kitchen. The majority of the kids only stayed until noon and after that they had lunch, naps and quiet indoor activities or went to a local playground so that the family had some peace and quiet for the afternoon. HTH

Oooops, Daddude, I forgot to add that your Fleshcards are her favorite out of all the materials. For her second to almost third year of life we probably used them 70% of the time, as fridge phonics somewhat intimidates her. We used to tote around a stack with us when we were on the bus or at the doctor's office etc. We also looked at them when she woke up from her nap and this was at her own initiative "Mommy, I want to look at the cards"  or "Mommy, I want to hold the ____ card". With the latter, she would proceed to carry said card around for half the day  LOL

Thank you Daddude for your Fleshcards!

My little girl will be three in two weeks and she can read in large (overwhelming!) part due to your Fleshcards. I consider the definition of reading to be the ability to read words in other settings/formats/contexts and sounding out words she has never seen, but not just CVC words. We did the following:

- ABC flash cards, board books and songs from 9 months onward
- YBCR DVDs and cards and Starfall from 12 months
- LF fridge phonics and wordwhammer from 1 year
- Fleshcards from 2 years onward
- Phonics books including Nora Gaydos and various free internet ones and phonics wheels from 2 years onward

We have primarily concentrated on the short vowel CVC words and are cycling through all the short vowel CVCs for the third time. This cycle, we are staying on them for 1-2 weeks and bombarding ourselves with all of our other materials for the particular vowel being covered. We will soon move onward, so this update is great Daddude!

Hi km276, I just sent you a PM!
13  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: Local (offline) early-learning support groups? on: August 25, 2010, 09:03:44 PM
Hi km276,

My daughter and I are scheduled to join my husband in Riyadh by mid-September of this year. We will be living "on the economy" i.e. not in a compound. My daughter will be three at the end of September and I am teaching her how to read and math. I have already shipped most of my early learning materials and books to Riyadh with my husband. I hope that we can get together at some point.

Take care!
