Smart Hyrum

Today, I remembered a fun internet site for toddlers who are learning their ABC's. The site is called Starfall. My friend Jill recommended the site to me about a year ago. On this site it has various activities to help children learn their ABC's.

This morning, I showed Hyrum the internet site on the computer. He loved it. He was pronouncing all of the letters and their sounds and saying words with the computer...it was so cute. Not only that, after a few quick demonstrations of how to use the mouse and how the program works, he was able to navigate the program all by himself! I was so proud of him. Normally, we don't let him even touch the computer, so I was really surprised at his skills.

As a result, while the babies' were taking their morning nap, I was able to watch Hyrum on the computer and also iron some of Brandon's shirts.

Just as a side note, I am really focusing with Hyrum right now on learning his letters, he knows the letters O, B and sometimes H and S.

Here is Hyrum pretending to use the computer(this picture was taken a couple of weeks ago)

Kids today must come programmed to use the computer. I am constantly amazed at their ability to navigate their way around. Another site my kids like is: Up to Ten Kids

Way to go, Hyrum! How fun to see them learning so quickly.

Way to go Hyrum. I'll have to show Kaiden that website. He's obsessed with letters. I love your blog colors by the way.

It's amazing how quick kids learn. We don't give them enough credit for what they can pick up quickly! Starfall is a great website! I can't believe how big he is!

I love to see the kids learn something new or say something that they figured out for themselves.
