1  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: Brillkid now a MENSAN on: November 03, 2017, 04:36:06 PM
Hi Nadia. I read your entry about Cammie taking the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence (WPPSI) exam. Wow! Your daughter Cammie is such an amazing girl. Mensa member at a very young age, just wow!  smile

I also reside in the Philippines, I'm from Davao by the way and though my daughter is nowhere near Cammie's genius lever IQ, I have been told several times that she is quite advanced for her age. She is 5 by the way and will be turning 6 soon. Yes, I have been doing Early Learning with her too since she was around 5 months old.  She is a proud product of Little Reader.

Anyway, my husband and I are interested to have her take the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence (WPPSI) exam but we don't know who to talk to. I only read about it through your brillkids forum post  smile 

Where can she take the WPPSI exam and how much does it cost? If you can refer to us the school or center who can administer the test, we will be very grateful. We don't know much about it and none of my friends have heard about this test. Hope you can help us. Thank you so much.
2  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Re: This toddlers/children reading program seems to be great! need your opinion PLZ on: April 05, 2015, 12:28:57 PM
Hi mom2bee thanks for your recommendations. I am actually also using starfall and readingbear for our phonics computer based lessons. I have so far bought little reader, little musician, wink to learn chinese and little chinese for early learning- which I bought mainly because these were highly recommended here in brillkids forum.  But since I sent my little one to a montessori pre-school, the school's advise was to limit screen time that's why I was looking for a non-computer/screen curriculum for our phonics lessons.

Seems like I'm going to have to cross the pdf only curriculum off my list then. I was actually about to press the buy button in their website but I was a little wary about the fact that they have no "about us" page and they have not published their exact office address. But the other book Teaching Your Child To read in 100 easy lessons has over 1000 reviews in amazon. Most reviews are positive so I think I'll get that one instead.
3  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Re: This toddlers/children reading program seems to be great! need your opinion PLZ on: April 04, 2015, 07:57:51 PM
I am also looking into this program. I just finished the entire little reader lesson with my child and though we enjoyed little reader, my little girl has not yet started to read independently. She can however sight read several words but nowhere near the level of the other kids here. I want to start her with phonics so I'm looking at http://www.childrenlearningreading.org and at this book Teach Your Child To Read in 100 easy lessons http://www.amazon.com/Teach-Your-Child-Read-Lessons/dp/0671631985

I am looking for a non computer based curriculum which the two abovementioned are offering. So if anyone here has feedback or review for the children learning reading and teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons, please please please do so. I will be really grateful. Thank you in advance.

Thank you Kezia for the link. It's exactly what I'm looking for. Hope we can have the audio translations for the picture/video slides as well :-)
5  Products Marketplace / Product Discussions and Reviews / Does Little Chinese have an accompanying pinyin & English Translation printables on: August 30, 2013, 02:09:16 PM
Hi. I have tried the trial version of Little Chinese. I really like it and my little girl likes it too. The only thing that's stopping me from purchasing the full version is the lack of printables or script of what is being said on screen and the lack of english translation. I don't speak chinese and sometimes I'm not sure how a particular word is being pronounced example, the word "nose." I'm not sure if its a "bi" or "pi." If it has an accompanying pinyin and English translation can someone please point it to me? 

While looking for alternative Chinese early learning products, I landed on Wink to Learn's website and I found out that their Chinese DVDs have an accompanying printable table of contents of each lesson in english, pinyin and chinese character which can be found here http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0247/1489/files/Parents_guide_Speak_ReadChinese_Traditional.pdf?150

I'm wondering if Little Chinese also has this. Thanks.

6  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: Total Development Programme on: August 24, 2013, 02:47:20 PM
Hi. A sales agent has just presented to me ETL's Total Development Programme. I'm interested in their product called "A Child's First Library of Learning" which contains 24 books, 1 glossary book and an interactive media they call Walter. What's stopping me is the cost. As some of the members here have said, it is quite pricey. Their product A Child's First Library of Learning is around $1,139 (US Dollars). They are willing to give me an installment plan though but still, I find it really expensive.

On the other hand, I found Little Reader at first expensive too but I found it to be really worth the price I paid it for that I also bought other EL products that came highly recommended by the members here. So far I am using Little Reader, Little Musician, Tweedlewink, Little Pim and YBCR at home. However, unlike the other products that I previously mentioned, I found only a few reviews on ETL's Total Development Programme. So please for those who have purchased the First Library of Learning product of ETL, I would really like to hear from you and I would like to know how you incorporated it with your everyday lessons with your child. Thanks.
7  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Re: LR and Doman on: June 09, 2013, 03:26:15 PM
Wow that's really great. I started my child with LR at 5 months old. So far she has sight read (by reading out loud) only 3 words which are baby, man and thigh. I have not personalized the lessons though and we just did the LR lessons usually once a day and I also showed her physical flash cards. She has become pretty verbal. Her vocabulary is just amazing and she is starting to talk in three-word phrases. However, she has not shown any inclination yet to show me if she can read so I wonder, how often did you play the LR lessons in a day; did you personalize the lessons; and  did you have other reading activities with your child. Thanks.

Hi,

am new here. my girl (curretly 2 year old) has started LR when she was 3 mths, and nw is reading very well at the age of 2.. much to the atnoshiment of many..

9  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: Screen time?? on: June 09, 2013, 03:09:51 PM
I am also taking the Tweedlewink Overview course now and screen time/tv time was addressed by Pamela. I distinctly remember her saying that physical flash cards is still the best but for practical reasons, they made the dvd lessons which are about 8 minutes long per lesson. I am also cautious in exposing my child to TV/screen time and I limit her screen time/TV time to LR lessons, nursery rhymes videos on you tube, star fall phonics and Little Musician. I always interact with her during her screen time e.g. talking to her and pointing out the objects we see on screen and I have never left her alone during screen time. Her screen time exposure a day is less than 1 hour. Under the Tweedlewink Chart, my child falls under the infant-toddler stage and the recommended learning video time there for her stage is actually 60 minutes but Pamela (of Tweedlewink) says that the 60 minute video time can be inclusive of the lesson time (flash card sessions) which they recommend to be 30 minutes per day.

If I only have all the time in the world, I would choose to do physical flash cards but since I'm a working mom, I make do with the things at my disposal, namely technology thus, I allowed my child limited exposure to the screen/tv.
10  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child - Signing, Speaking, Languages / Re: Teaching. Baby10 languages ~possible? on: May 17, 2013, 07:48:40 AM
I think it's possible but I don't know how to do it. Since our household is bilingual, my child is exposed to 2 languages and one local dialect. I include little mandarin every 2-3 days a week and french but since I don't speak mandarin and french, I get really confused sometimes :-) The challenge really here is how to teach your child a language which you yourself don't speak.
11  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: Infant early learning brain development video on: May 16, 2013, 08:58:22 AM
This video basically supports early learning advocates who says that the 0-6 years of a child's life is crucial in terms of learning. Thanks for sharing :-)
12  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: Is TweedleWink any good? on: May 09, 2013, 04:28:24 PM
I'm currently taking the Tweedlewink Online Overview Course and  Pamela of Tweedlewink actually says that live sessions (manual flashing of cards) with your child is still the best but for purposes of practicality, they packaged their lessons in DVDs. So if you have the time to make the flashcards or the resources to buy manual flashcards, I think you can opt out of buying the DVDs.

Since the DVDs are a bit pricey, why not try buying just one first and see how your child likes the lessons? Or better yet, check out a sample of their lessons on youtube as posted by happyj. Per my experience, my baby will not sit to watch the Tweedlewink lesson during her active time so what I do is play it before her bedtime or at anytime she is ready to sleep.
13  BrillKids Software / Little Reader - General Discussion / Re: Little Reader and Speaking on: April 26, 2013, 08:57:01 AM
I also credit LR for the fact that my toddler learned to speak early. She is 1 year and 3 months old right now and can speak more than 100 words and can identify (by saying the name out loud) the pictures of animals, objects and people that were included in our lessons. She would also surprise me by remembering something which I just pointed to her in passing and then when she sees a picture later on, she would point it out to me and identify the item out loud. That because of this, I recommended LR to a friend of mine whose child (aged 4) is still not uttering any words and is undergoing speech therapy. I hope LR can help her and her child as well.
14  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child - Signing, Speaking, Languages / Re: Sign language with hearing toddlers on: April 26, 2013, 08:28:50 AM
My toddler is now 1 year and 3 months old. She can speak a lot of words now and is very communicative. Do I need to continue giving her sign language lessons? I started giving her some sign language lessons when she was 6 months old. She used to sign for milk back then which my husband and I really found helpful.  Our daily lessons now consist of LR, manual flashcards for reading and math, Little Musician, and I am slowly incorporating what I've learned in Tweedlewink Overview online training into our daily routine. However, I find myself press for time because I am a working mom.
15  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Re: How I taught Saška to read with LR on: April 15, 2013, 05:35:08 AM
Wow congrats and thank you for sharing your video. How old was Saska when she started showing you that she can read? So far my baby has showed me that she can sight read (if she wants to) the words baby, man and thigh but we have not progressed yet that much. Sigh
