Is your child 0 to 3 years old?
Your child’s most important early learning years for your child is the age of 0, 1, 2 and 3 years old.
1. What is the most suitable flashcards based on age?
2. When to introduce flash cards and effectively teach my baby/toddler?
Most parents think you start with alphabets and "1,2,3" flashcards first. Yes, these are one of the flash cards you use but not the first one to introduce.
Let's explore what is BEST RECOMMENDED choice of learning flashcards chosen by us are based on Glenn Doman's method.
Let's start with:
1. Learning Flashcards for newborns (0 to 3 months old)
The visual sensory of a newborn is the least developed. Your baby can see only black and white, and as they develop their colour spectrum, they will begin to see the red colour. You first start with Infant stimulation flash cards (black, white and red flashcards) with high contrast shapes and patterns, from newborn to 3 months old. By the third month, your baby will be able to see the full-colour spectrum.
You can start teaching them new words or vocabulary and math.
For math, you start with Dot flash cards. Normally known as "Math Red Dot Flashcards." For math, you start teaching them "quantity recognition." The red dots on the card represents the true values or quantity. You also can be creative by replacing the red dots with some other objects that are attractive to keep your child's attention.
2. Learning Flashcards for 1 year olds
Continue to teach your 1 year old toddler new words and vocabulary. As for math, if you have finish flashing the Math Dot flashcards, you can continue to flash the Equation Dot Math flashcards (addition, subtraction, and multiplication).
3. Learning Flashcards for 2 and 3 year olds.
Continue to flash cards with words and move on to flash cards with short sentences or a few words.
According to Glenn Doman's book "How To Teach Your Baby To Read," he said,
Don't Teach the alphabet first. Glenn Doman quoted, "Unless your child has already learned the alphabet, don't teach it to him until he finished reading his first book. Doing it tends to make him a slower reader than he would otherwise be. He tends to read the letter instead of the words. Remember that words and not letters are the basic of language. If he already knows the alphabet you can still teach him to read. Kids are wonderfully pliable."
As for math, after learning all the Math Dot flashcards, you can now teach your child numerals (1, 2 and 3).
Flashing cards are all a process or sequence, for example, dot cards come first then comes numeral cards. What is most important is knowing what flashcard topic comes first and what you should teach next. What we mention is the right sequence on how you should teach your child math and vocabulary.
Flashcards are proven and a highly effective early learning tool to teach your baby. It is recommended to follow a proper flashcard program because it has a proven system to guide you. We believe the Glenn Doman flash card method works very well.
