Cinderella story book


Just to share my experience here. Alhamdulillah my first daughter Syaura able to read at 4years 4months old(Malay version). Actually it is quite late compare to many other kids outside there who able to read at more younger age. Some already able to read at 2,3 years old. As for English version she able to read some words, while some not familiar one she will read as Bahasa melayu version. Very funny!!Example if she read CAT=kucing first time she will pronounce it as CAT=paint in bahasa melayu. Huhuhu... So this is the time that is very challenging for us as parents to teach her. What I did teach her to read as per below:

1) During long journey, (balik kampung etc.) I will buy paper and all the way long to destination I will take few minutes to spell and pronounce her the title of the news.

2) I bought her one set of books with colourful pic and writing and take one day 5 minutes to teach her. Actually, if I did it seriuosly maybe she will be able to read in english by now. but then as I was just "hangat hangat tahi ayam" the book wasn't help much.

3) When she was 6 months old I sent her to nursery, at the same time it was a "playschool" for her. Everyday she came back from nursery she sang new song and knew about alphabets and numbers. This "playschool" also help a lot I think. It same concept as "Education at younger age" that was advised by government to our child. But we also can do it at home by spending some time with our child do as the same as playschool. But as I am very "hardworking" I just let the "playschool" teach her.

4) Currently, she likes to read story book malay version. So I bought it for her and made a story book collection for her. She able to read "Cinderella" until the end. I hope by make a story books collection for her she will be motivated and will like to read more.

5) As now we want to teach her to read in english, we bought her a singing CD contained how to spell and read English words. She likes it.

Currently, we are looking forward to teach her to read in english so she will be able to read both in Malay and English. My conclusion is, it is not easy to be parent, and it is not easy to teach our kids huhu... Need to study more on how is the best way to educate them...

enni ko memang ada tokoh garang ngan anak pon...kekek..sebenarnya bukan nak garang pun tapi kalu dah besar dah pandai 'melawan' tu yang teruji kesabaran tu...by the way, gunalah macam pendekatan pon kat anak2 nak bagi dia pandai menulis , membaca.. jadi parents nak kena kreatif..bila dah pandai tu seronok sungguh!!
