Princess Presto

I've finally gotten around to uploading most of the backlog of pictures we've taken over the last few months.

This is a rather random selection. Dada has been getting deeply into the PBS Super Why show, which is great for teaching kids reading and spelling basics. She alternates between pretending to be Wonder Red ("With word power!") and Princes Presto (with her magic spelling wand).

Here she is in one of her Princes Presto outfits, although she appears to be carrying Wonder Red's Wonder Word Basket (or maybe it's just Easter eggs, not sure).

On the reading front, Dada is starting to read and write basic words. She can make it about halfway through Hop on Pop before running out of attention and spends lots of time writing lists of words.

She's also spending a lot of time playing the Super Why games on the site, although I'm not sure how much actual learning value they have, not that we worry about that too much.

Sophia also loves, and is a SuperWhy fan as well, though Word Girl has the biggest grip on her right now.

For what it's worth, I think all those games have at least a pinch of learning value--Sophia's ability to match sounds with letters and predict a word's pronunciation from its spelling seem to have been on the rise, we think partly from these games.
