Two And A Half Year Old Learns To Read And Sign
Holly Reyes 1/4/2016
Fireese is only 2.5 years old, but is already astounding everyone with her skills. Playing with magnetic letters at the fridge is her favorite. Her mom sits with her on the floor, taking time to bond with her and teach her how to distinguish all the letters.
Excitement builds as Fireese vocalizes her new-found word, and it is adorable when she accomplishes one word at a time meanwhile using baby sign language to help her out. But not only does Fireese read words or sign words, she can make words too. Jumping up and down, she rejoices over this monumental moment and gives her mom a big high-five as she exclaims, "I made a word! I made a word!"
Fireese's mom Laura is passionate about teaching and training children, and is the president and founder of My Smart Hands Inc. which is one of the leading Baby Signing companies. But her daughter is priority, as she desires to be able to spend her time teaching her and raising her. Over the years, she has found a way to do both. She started with teaching her baby sign language, and after that, teaching her to read was a lot easier.
