The decision to put up these visual aids (and some that were not shown), despite the possibility that it would still be long before we could be able to use them, was made after I figured that I've had enough staring of the bare walls of our room.

That was about 2 months ago.

Except for the Alphabet and the Nursery Rhymes posters, I haven't really expected to be using them this soon.

But a couple of weeks ago, kiddo started showing some interest to these posters. He would curiously stare at the Flags of the World and The Solar System.

I believe He must have thought of the round objects shown in the Solar System poster as balls, thus, his interest. As I don't think he can grasp the idea of planets, the best I came up with was to tell him of the names of each planet. It's not everyday that he demands to be shown and told of the Solar System but to this day, he can positively identify the sun, Pluto and Saturn.

The flags are a different case though. Since the first day I carried him in my arms and pointed this and that, no day passes by that we do not take a look at the flags. He has made sure to request or demand that we play Where-Is every single day and even many times in a day -to which I happily oblige every time.

It's good to start him young. Kids at his age pick it up very fast.

I used to plaster my toddler son's room with posters of Alphabet, Chinese phonics, pictures of animals, vegetables, fruits... etc. He learnt to identify them quickly.
