I am tasked to take care of the education portion for Reuben at home so I decided to start off this journey today. At an age of 6 months +, this is the perfect time to start on Reuben as his brain cells are starting to develop. Today I decided to introduce various shapes to Reuben. I used Microsoft Word to draw out various shapes and printed it out on a piece of paper.
I started off with the following nine shapes
I allocated about 15 minutes of Reuben’s “play” time to do flash the various printed out shapes to him. To my surprise, he was attentive when I flashed the shapes in front of him and read the name of the shape aloud. I think he enjoyed it. I did the flashing twice. Research shows that the same thing should not be repeated more than twice over a short period of time.
Below is a video of me introducing the various shapes to Reuben. Parden the poor lighting of the video.. Taken from handphone camera.
Moving on, I will be sharing more stuff on my blog what I will be teaching Reuben over the next couple of months. Do stay tuned!
