Kimi Can Read?

Today I had a pleasant shock. Shocked cos Kimi simply rattled on the title card of 1 set of the flashcards I was about to use.

I couldn't believe my ears and asked him to repeat and he said it loud and clear, "OWLS!". WOW!! I was wondering if Kimi could read. Then I thought, could it be just association and I realised this set of cards had no pix on the title card except OWLS in red.

I scrambled and took another set with DOGS and asked him and he said it loud and clear - DOGS. Then I took another which was Types of Berries, covered all the pix and pointed to berries and he responded, "BERRIES".

Took yet another set of plain title card for Air Transportation and proded Kimi. He looked at it a little while (this set is new and have been flashed only once) and said, Air ... Airplane. But of course, he can't prounce transportation and probably associated with the 1st card which was an airplane?

I was soooo happy I cried cos I was just so caught off-guard. I have been inputing and inputing and never really expected any output from him so this really blew me away!

Immediately I thanked and glorified God for his favour upon Kimi, for blessing Kimi with such wisdom and having such a teachable spirit! Praise The Lord!

Lil Smurfy said...

ohhh these r not GD's right?
u got them frm a SMH spree last yr?

tona-mama said...

Smurfy - ya, from spree.. frankly, besides the thickness being relatively ok, the pix quality is overall rather crappy!

These are not GDs.
