2041  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: "Normal" versus "Early Educated" Milestones at 18 months on: June 20, 2010, 12:11:25 AM
DadDude, the reason I asked is because Doman's book "How Smart is Your Baby" has a chart with developmental milestones ranging in the below average, average, and superior based on age. The book explains in detail that you are supposed to chart your babies progress and work on them in areas they might be deficient. If you have the book, it's page 44 "The Institutes Developmental Profile." The book is really geared more to the first 12 months though.

I am glad I went and reread this chart right now, although much of the chart is kind of ambiguous in my opinion, I missed it the first time but it *does* give a reading milestone.

Sophisticated Cortex,  Visual Competence- Reading with total understanding:
  • Slow-144 months
  • Average- 72 months
  • Superior 36- months

I'm not being too hard on myself, I just wish I had done more research early on, that's all. I can't change yesterday, but tomorrow is a different story.

2042  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Music / Re: Our experience so far with "Music for Little Mozarts" on: June 20, 2010, 12:01:39 AM
I just wanted to thank all of you for your input. I read this thread once and anticipate reading it again several times to make as much sense of it as possible, I know nothing about music....but that's exactly why I want to teach my kids! So I will embark on this journey to teach them regardless, and this information is most helpful. smile
2043  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Music / Xylophone Versus Tuning Forks on: June 19, 2010, 11:32:30 PM
I priced out the Walker tuning forks and they are just out of our range right now, having spent so much money already getting this early education program started (I just found out about right brain education, doman, etc). I would say  I will buy them down the road, but they are so expensive that I doubt we'll ever get them.

I read a blog of a doman inspired parent and she uses a Angel Glockenspiel 25 note xylophone. I went ahead and purchased that model on Ebay, now I am wondering if I wasted my money? Well, truthfully my kids and I will get a kick out of playing with it regardless, but in regards to learning pitch, will it get the job done?

Thanks!
2044  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: "Normal" versus "Early Educated" Milestones at 18 months on: June 19, 2010, 07:50:34 PM
Okay, it sounds like the early-early reading is the exception, not the rule then. I was under the impression that all the kids who used LR or who were faithful to YBCR or How to Teach Your Baby to Read where just like the "Felicity"s on youtube (that gorgeous, smart little daughter of the founder of this site). I guess then that is more uncommon than common.

Thank for you the reality check. I will keep loving and adoring my kids and teaching them both what I can, when I can. We *never* do anything she doesn't want to do. (She just walked away from Little Pim to go play outside, and that's ok in my book).

Thanks for the feedback and encouragement.

Blessings.
2045  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: "Normal" versus "Early Educated" Milestones at 18 months on: June 19, 2010, 01:42:44 PM
Thank you for the kind reply,my main goal with her is reading, because once we "unlock" reading, she can access all of the knowledge in the world.
2046  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / "Normal" versus "Early Educated" Milestones at 18 months on: June 19, 2010, 03:22:51 AM
These questions are in regards to my almost 19 month old daughter. I have an almost 6 month old as well, but he'll be benefiting more than my daughter did in his first year. I only very recently discovered Doman, right brain education, as well as LR & LM in the last couple of weeks which we are now using faithfully.


Prior to this we have been doing:
-Baby Signing time
-Signing Time
-Signing time books and flashcards to reinforce her signs
-YBCR semi-regularly
-Preschool Prep Company series, Meet the Shapes, Colors, Letters, Numbers and Sight Words about 16 months old. She responded VERY well to these and worked her way through of the DVD's in about 2 months or less. We're now finishing up with Meet the Sight words and working on the accompanying easy reader books, she knows 2/3 of her Preschool Prep sight words very well but has not yet translated that into book reading yet (that I am aware of anyway. We had NO IDEA she knew all of her Baby Signing Time signs because they never "came up in conversation." One day my husband asked her and she surprised us with a seemingly unknown sign, and then another, and another, she knew them all along...)


Her current level:
-Knows all shapes, colors, letters (Upper and lower case recognition, still working on learning the ABC song though), numbers (1-10 down pat, most of 11-20), 30-40 sight words-
-Picking up 1-2 new words everyday for the last month or so
-Very active, tries to do "forward rolls" on the living room floor, loves to climb, run, play, is fearless
-Studies and takes apart things, will inspect things to learn how they work and so forth, "tests" the world constantly
-Every day we do multiple projects- playdough, fingerpaint, talk about the learning posters I've hung around the house, crayons, markers, stickers, play with dried beans, random crafts, bang on pots and pans, pretend kitchen/doll play, etc
-Plays with foam letters and we make words for her out of them in the bathtub
-Water play in the baby pool usually 3-4 times per week
-Today we just started working on keyboarding and mouse control with the Leapfrog Click "My first computer", she gets the clicking part but isn't great at the dragging part yet
-A variety of youtube clips like phonics/abc songs, months and days of the week, some spanish clips, etc
-Basically daytime potty-trained
-She took her first steps at 10 months & 10 days old
-Super affectionate and just a great kid to be around. We're working on getting control of her emotional maturity and reducing crying fits which is one of her challenges.


New programs we are beginning or just began:
-LR & LM & many of the extra DL's
-LR Deluxe kit
-Tweedlewink
-Little Pim Spanish


What are some other activities/programs I can incorporate into our daily life that I am not already doing? I've seen people referring to the "Memory Magic" program. Is she too young or is that something I can play and let my kids watch and they can still benefit from it?



So, for her first 1.5 of life I have been working with her and reading to her all along but not utilizing the methods that I only recently learned about. I am grateful that I get to start with my son at an earlier age. I now realize that "average" is only "normal" because parents (like myself) don't know about the information that's out there.

Thoughts?
2047  Downloads + Collaborations Discussions / English Little Reader Lesson Downloads / Lesson Downloads- Multiple at one time? on: June 19, 2010, 02:37:14 AM
Is there a way to download multiple library lessons at one time? If not, maybe there should be, it would be really helpful. It would be nice to be able to check a box next to the lessons and then click "download selected" or "download all" once, instead of clicking, and clicking, and clicking on each download individually.

Just a thought! Thanks. smile
