Doman’s early childhood development program focuses on four things:

  1. Reading
  2. Math
  3. Encyclopedic Knowledge
  4. Physical Excellence

When I bought my Math and Reading Kits from the local Doman office, I was advised to start the bits of intelligence (encyclopedic knowledge) program from about 8 months onwards.  Bits of intelligence cards come with a picture on one side and ten bits of information about the picture on the back of the card.  The recommendation is to start with four Bits cards.  Read out the names of the pictures and then one piece of information about that picture.

I bought ten sets of bits cards when I purchased the Math and Reading Kits.  However, I have also made my own.  In order to keep it fast and brief – as per Shichida’s instructions – I have dispensed with the ten bits of information.  I find that aside from looking at the cards the first time I show the pictures, both boys never look up again after.  The only way to hold their interest is to make sure the pictures are always changing and to keep the information short and sweet.

My first set of Bits is on the seven ancient wonders of the world. You can download them here:
