I introduced my children to phonics programs at a very early age. While I was homeschooling the older children, I would put the pack n play in front of the TV and put on an engaging phonics program to keep them entertained. I did this at the same time everyday.
Before I knew it, my toddler knew all his sounds just from watching the phonic show, Leap Frog Letter Factory. This was true for at least 3 of my children. They looked forward to their “school.”
I also had special toys that I would allow my toddlers to play with while I was doing school with the older children. They were only allowed to play with them during school hours. This made these toys extra special.
