KIKO's little milestones at 34 months


KIKO, being my youngest and I should say... my only child who experienced my utmost TLC from time of birth up to this moment.  My two other children had felt my motherly care as well but I was working during those years and I had to leave them and let their nanny took over in my behalf.

So, every little accomplishment of KIKO is never missed and is properly documented.  He is almost three years old and I am pleased with his intellectual capacities so as a dedicated mother... I really teach him the basics in coloring and now he's learning to trace and write.

He traced his name: Francis Dan Riel D. Bermudez
He traced his full name: Francis Dan Riel D. Bermudez

He made an art and traced his nickname

In this video... I draw a ball on a piece of bond paper and I indicated the word ball with a lighter shade of crayon and he traced the letters and the ball as well.  According to Primary School @ suite 101:

"A child can begin to write if he or she is ready and interested. This notion of “readiness” is very important as children are all different and may not reach the stage of readiness at the same time. If a child can hold a pencil or pen in a steady, comfortable three-finger grasp, then this may be a sign that he or she is ready to form letters.

When young children first “put pen to paper” they are mark-making rather than engaging in conventional writing. Their marks are significant because they have intention and purpose and are very personal. These kinds of marks should be encouraged and praised as this will build confidence and help the developing child to feel like a valued writer.

Some children enjoy practicing handwriting and will want to trace handwriting patterns repeatedly, which is fine if the child chooses to do this. However, it is important to remember that early writing should be a joyful, empowering process, led by the child, rather than merely a series of exercises and drills."



LONG WAY TO GO... KIKO!
