How Kids Learn~~~!

Like her older brother did, Gigi is learning at her own pace in the way best for her.
MD was writing his name at around 3.5  and Gigi just wrote her name at 5.
This Friday we were signing cards to send to the grandmothers and Gigi signed her card.

It was the first time she did ! She was never made to write any letters or her name.
She usually sends e-mails to a friend and is able to type a few words but most of the time I spell it out for her and point to the letters she cannot remember. She does like typing sometimes and using roses to decorate the text.
Learning happens everyday in our home and it is never ceases to amaze me how children learn
It was the same way with her brother and according to his annual testing , required in Minnesota, he spells at between the 6th and 7th grades level.
Here is Gigi's first time writing out her name!
