Finally Get Him Reading!!!

Got a call from the centre on Friday afternoon informing that they were ordered to closed for 10 days by the MOH to break the chain of HFMD. *sigh* so my little poor baby got to restart the whole torture ordeal again!

So at home today, mommy tried to mimic what the centre does every day. I sat him down after he had his breakfast and we sang the "Good Morning" song. I'm so happy to see that he responded and shakes his hand with me (part of the action of the song). Then we sang "Wheels on the Bus"; "Incy Wincy Spider"; "Head and Shoulder, Knees and Toes". Mommy was so encouraged that Little Nic participate in it with a little actions here and there...(this shows he has been observing what others in the centre was doing and only too shy to do it)..Mommy was so happy and kept cheering him on : D

Then we moved on to story book reading, (mommy not a story teller, can only read from the storybook) I was really REALLY very happy that he promptly sat on my lap, like the way he sat on his teacher's lap, and listen to the story that I read to him. He managed to sit through the entire book (what a sudden change!) What really taken me by surprise was that he went off to take another book and sat back down again! YES! YES! YES! Finally, I'm able to get him to read!!!

Next, we did some flash cards and this time, I try to get him to say the word after me AND he DID! Oh....I immediately hugged him and kisses him..he must be wondering what is this crazy mommy doing... He can say the 2 and 3 syllabus word like elephant, orange, circle, triangle...

Today, I'm a Proud and Happy Mom!! Thanks baby!
