Last night when I picked up CootieGirl from daycare I asked our caregiver about CootieGirl’s speech change, and she said that she thinks it’s from the phonics class that is taught at the daycare. Apparently the teacher has them learn sounds by repeating the first syllable. For example, “C is for Cat. C C C C Cat. A is for Apple. A A A A Apple.” So in a sense, they are learning to STUTTER!!! Aaaauuugghhh….if CootieGirl continues to do this a lot I’m going to ask daycare NOT to put CootieGirl in phonics. I don’t want her to learn phonics anyway, I want her to learn to READ WORDS – big difference.
