Does your child write sdrawkcab?

Have you ever looked down to see that your child has written his/her name perfectly…just backwards?

“Children just learning to write will write upside down, backward, all over the page.  They fall in love with letters.  Young children don’t yet recognize that print is a static form.”  says Susan B Neuman, professor of educational studies at the University of Michigan.

Writing is one of the first introductions to the two dimensional world for pre-schoolers.

“In a three dimensional world, a chair is always a chair.  So, to a child a C is always a C, no matter its direction.  It’s not random, it’s not a mistake. Its configuration is just different.”  According to Judity A Schickedanz, professor of early literacy at Boston University.

The entire article was found in the December issue of Wondertime Magazine.

Zoo Train – for Toddlers 1 1/2 – 3 years

Your toddler and the train make a natural match – always on the move. And when you both dance and make the featured animal sounds, your toddler develops the multisensory and listening skills necessary for permanent learning.

Mark you calendars now!!!! We’re going to have a trike-a-thon on Sunday, May 4th to benefit St. Jude’s Hospital.

This is going to be an amazing opportunity for children to have fun and to raise money for a really good cause.  There are a couple of reasons that I have decided to sponsor this trike-a-thon through our studio.  The first is that I know St. Jude is doing amazing things each and every day to help every sick child that walks through their doors regardless of money and/or insurance.  If my family ever needed St. Jude’s expertise, I want to make sure they are there ready to help.  The second reason is that my family was challenged at Christmas by my parents.  My siblings, I, and our spouses were given a challenge that began with $25.  We were asked to match this money and find a way to raise money for a good cause.  In June, our family is going to come together and share what we chose to do with our money, and even though we’re told it’s not a contest, you know how siblings are : )  So, Steve and I are on a mission to raise the most money for our charity!  And we need your help.

Now, I know some of our kiddos are not riding bikes yet, but have no fear, we have a plan.  You can participate by using a wagon or a stroller.  Older siblings that aren’t in Kindermusik any more?  No problem, we’d love to have them participate!  The trike-a-thon will be held at the Olathe Community of Christ Church (our old Kindermusik site).

There will also be incentives for money pledged such as $35 pledges receive a t-shirt.

Please plan now to attend our trike-a-thon and help raise money for such an important cause that any of us could need at any time.
