Here’s my favorite from last time:

“Mama, this letter is “O”! This is “A”!” , my  18 month old son was saying with excitement while pointing on letters on a poster in the doctor’s waiting room. The poster was in Italian, our community language, he just  was recognizing some letters similar to Russian.

I started teaching my kids reading in minority language early. I am raising them trilingual and I thought starting early will help me in passing on my language. My kids are 4 and 6 years old now and both read and write in the language I speak to them – Russian. Gladly neither of them asked me why they have to do it, as Frances’ 7 and a half years old  son , who has asked why he has to read in Spanish , his minority language. I am curious if it just a matter of time.

But no matter when you start teaching your child to read and write, you would need to make the learning activities fun. Many tips that Frances shares worked very well with my kids!  Here is my pick – Bilingual Kids: Reading and Writing in Spanish by Frances.

Thank you for linking-up, and we can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to!
