Jenna is three years old now and she’s recently become interested in Starfall.com. Her brother Bruce(7) was totally uninterested in Starfall at that age, even though he could sound out three letter words no problem.
Jenna won’t sound out words for me when prompted, but is highly intrigued by the computer. She can do a bunch of the Starfall games on her own, including the matching game that involves reading some basic words.
Yes, this makes no sense whatsoever!
I think she must be really strong at beginning phonemes, but won’t look at the middle of a word at all, especially if mommy asks. But the game pictured above? She’s getting 100% all the time.
Whatever. I guess I’m just along for the ride. 🙂
