Jaimie Writes "A"

When Viv, Wolfie and I met this morning for shopping and food at Katong, we were talking about our kids' progess when we were resting in a eatery place. Wolfie and I were still very amazed that Ezra could write his name so beautifully while our little ones were still quite far back, not that it bothers us very much, really. Afterall, they are just 3 year olds.

However, children really progressed at their own pace and continue to surprise us everyday! After we came home from IMM this evening, Jaimie was busy with her own stuff while I was busy blogging about the morning's meeting with Viv and Wolfie. Then I heard Jaimie calling for me. When I went over, she showed me the letter "A" she wrote by herself!! I was so surprised and pleased but I erased the very first "A" Jaimie wrote and asked her to write again. I wanted to see if it was a random picture she drew or a confident letter which she can write.

That's Jaimie's second attempt to write "A". However, it turned out to be a "H". I didn't highlight to her that she had written "H". Instead, I erased it and told her to try again.
Jaimie's third attempt.



Quite nicely written, isn't it?! :D


Her fourth attempt. No bad, yeah? :D I praised her generously and she was very happy.

No, Jaimie hasn't officially mastered the writing of "A" yet. When I asked her to write "A" again half an hour later, she couldn't master the strokes and "A" became "F". With some hand-holding and some verbal instructions, she wrote some decent looking "A"s after some tries.
It's anther milestone Jaimie has achieved! She has started to take an interest in learning to write!

RR writes H as A too!

Great start for both of you!

Tell you hor... 'O' is easier. hahaha

Wah, very good!

Wolfie, Faith had problems with O leh, cos she didn't seem to know when to stop and will go round and round. "Straight" letters such as E, F, H are easier to master than the curvy ones, especially the B, D, P and G.

So clever! Izzy is not quite there yet. She only knows how to write O and I for Isabella! And only when she feels like it!
