Ever since H has started learning alphabets, she has showed keen interest in spelling and writing her name. In fact, for her, H doesn’t stand for horse or house but for Hiyashaa. She was so excited to know that even her name has a place in alphabets. Every time she spotted H, she would shout “H for Hiyashaa!” with pride and happiness. Although I didn’t encourage her into writing alphabets so early considering the tender muscles of her hands, but definitely decided to teach her how to spell her name. Soon, I had a happy girl, who was thoroughly enjoying showing off her skills at spelling her name… H I Y A S H A A!

5 Educational Rhymes for pre-schoolers

Screen time is not bad if it’s chosen wisely and planned thoughtfully!

Learning for kids start from the day they are born. Their tiny twinkling eyes watch everything they come across and little minds absorbs and observes information from everything around them including TV and web. While a mother cannot filter out the outdoor world, but can definitely choose what her little one watches on phone, TV and iPad. Yes, I do allow my daughter some screen time during the day.  After all, this screen time allows me some ‘me-time’, ‘we-time’ or ‘just-anything time’! However, in moments like these, I make sure I provide good content to my child. I let her watch stuff that’s entertaining and educational at the same time.  And with toddlers and pre-schoolers, there’s nothing better than interesting rhymes and songs to keep them busy and and teach almost anything! We keep making our own rhymes too!
