My son will be 6 end of next month. He is generally doing good with regards to his development. He has started reading and loves math.
There are a couple of things I've noticed he has difficulty with-
I asked him for 3 words that rhyme with the word "car" (and many more similar questions, like rhyming words for "frog" etc.) . He takes a very long time to come up with appropriate words and sometimes gives up.. Given his clear and fluent speech and his developing reading skills + his reasonable vocabulary, I would've thought this was very easy for him. Is this normal for a kid his age?
I asked him "What letter looks like the number 5" expecting "S" and he had to hard time answering this. I made it simpler and simpler like "0" and "1" expecting "O" and "I/l" etc. but it took a lot of effort to get him to understand the concept. And he finally answered "6" with "b". Are kids this age expected to make such visual associations?
Thank you very much!
