I started this blog hoping to inspire other parents to help their children with Down syndrome reach for the sky! My daughter was reading words, before she was 2 years of age & reading books by 3.5 years. I believe kids with Down syndrome can do amazing things if we give them the right tools. I truly believe high expectations can make a tremendous difference in the lives of our children!
K loves flashcards - any kind of flashcards! I found these cards at a rummage sale the other day. They are about telling time, identifying & adding money.
Some of those concepts will wait for a later date, but I thought why not teach her about coins now? She already insists on being the one to pay when we are at a store! We've been looking at these cards for a few days now & she can already identity the coins on the cards, so I started getting her to sort real coins.
I was trying to include her in the picture, but K was in a mischievous mood today - she grabbed a couple of cards & ran away giggling!
