Learn reading. Activities for kids.

Artur  knows the alphabet for a long time, ever since from nursery. But when we started to teach him to read faced with a certain problem. Because calling the word letter by letter – this one, and put the words of these letters – it is another.
On this on the advice of the teacher, we teach the letters are not as they are pronounced in the alphabet, as well as pronounced in the word.
For that would teach how to add letters to words and read them without any problems, we started with the simplest of words.
And made ​​them this game..

20140921_103507I found lots of ideas about learn reading for kids at Pinterest.. and another moms blogs.

I make self cards with words, and make colorful pictures. Letters we make self as well.

It’s easy..

And now, Artur very like this game. He try to found each letter, make words, and try to read all word.. not just spell.


One more game.. “Colored Blocks!”. Actually, my boys do not have any problems with colors. They know each color, and his game very easy for them.

But this very good idea, if kids do not know colors very well, and make mistake when try to build colored blocks.


About learn reading we should start from short words.. it’s more easy.. words with three or four letters are easy to learn and learn to read. And after that, you can complicate our task.

To be continued..

First weekend after Holidays..

20140816_090934 20140816_181214

Upon return home the boys was noticeably dull. In England there is no so much interesting as with his grandparents in the village no pets, there is no so many friends. Unfortunately, the British are not accepted so. All children play at home, in their gardens. Not that in Ukraine – the whole street together.

The whole week the kids got bored, and with difficulty returning to normal life in England. But the first weekend we decided to have a little fun.

Ukrainian Holidays..



It was an amazing two weeks. It was very hot. At 9 am it was already 36 degrees in the shade.
Practically all two weeks of holidays we spent on the banks of the river.
Boys quickly learned to speak with her grandparents. They were the best assistants.
every morning Arthur helps his grandfather on the farm. Quickly learned that pigs are “svinya”. Tomatoes it – “pomidorchik”. And most importantly slippers – a “lapti”. Thus here))
