This past summer, I attempted to preschool the triplets at home. We focused on learning letters through play and letter games. Since the boys are the same age, I thought that working with them together in a group would be acceptable. The boys giggled their way through alphabet puzzles and magnet letters. They seemed to truly be making progress.
Until I separated them.
At this point, I realized that two of my boys had learned the entire alphabet while the other could only recognize a handful of letters. His creative mind only wandered while his brothers were concentrating on the alphabet. In honesty, he simply didn’t care a bit about learning letters or reading.
I began helping him individually by creating games that appealed to his interests. He has progressed tremendously, and he even pretends to read his Star Wars books aloud to his brothers.
One thing that we have incorporated is letting the boys take turns in choosing their daily stories. These 11 board books are favorites that they choose time and time again. Have your little ones read any of these 11 Board Books that are great for beginning readers?
