Lower and Upper Case Letters 1: C for cat

The best letter to start teaching your child the alphabet is the letter that begins his name. Young children are interested in things that relates to them. But when you start teaching his initial, you start to teach in capital letters. 

Most parents do this. Once they start teaching capitals letters, they continue to do so. 

Capital letters are easy for children to remember and write because they are made up mainly of straight lines. But it is harder for children to switch over to writing in lower case when they've learnt the capitals. I've written on the pitfalls of teaching capital letters first here.

Muslim Princess Books - An Alternative For Muslim Readers

There's something about princesses that appeals to most little girls. Is it the pretty dresses that they get to wear or the ability to command people and get what they want? Whatever it is, year after year, a new crop of prekinders would sing the Frozen song 'Let it Go' or come to classes dressed in a princess costume.

New Parent's Guide to Your Baby’s Education

Having your first child can be the most exciting and fulfilling thing in your life. But it can also be tiring and confusing because you don’t know what to do. There’s a lot of trial and error to see which ones work best for you and your child. It’s ok to make mistakes as this is your first time. 

But wouldn’t it be great if you could by pass all the trial and errors so you’ll know what to do? Having a guide would certainly help steer you in the right direction.

That’s what this guide is all about. It focuses on your child’s education and what you can do to help him/her learn from the very first days.

1. Start early

Don’t wait until school starts. Teach your child at the very beginning. The sooner he learns the more neural pathways and connections are made and strengthened. This means that the learning experiences that your child encounters are deepened and built upon. The more the experiences are and the stronger they are then the more your child knows and can act upon them.
