This 'week' lasted 10 days because we had more fun time than study time. So, to sum up Letter f:
See on On Tiger's Shelf for F for the full set up.

Using his new Crayola markers (thanks Aunty Sharon!)
I laminated the labeling worksheets and used velcro instead. Yup, velcro is my new BFF!
Using crayons on "A Sunday on La Grande Jatte" by Georges Seurat
Tiger is using the pointilism method as well..LOL..That's how he usually crayons :)
We did more dot painting using printouts from Jolanthe's Homeschool Creations & these:
I searched high and low in Malaysia for dot paint and finally found them in Think Toys, The Curve.
Brand: Alex. Retail price: RM 49 but I got them at 20% off during sales.
Lovely colors but not very washable. So, suit up!
We made some for grandpa and grandma to admire. Well, they have to admire coz Mommy put it up on their fridge *evil grin*
We did foot painting too. Will share soon. Otherwise people will fall asleep from this super long post.
Here we are matching the flashcards with the poster on the door:
Tiger's favourite signs for this week: 'Open' (Twisting his hands like opening a bottle/jar) and 'angry', slaps his hands together once with angry face). These are not ASL signs, he made them up.
Here he is trying to sign the alphabets
Sometimes, he doesn't sign but shows his displeasure by doing this when I interrupt his work. So, no teaching by holding hands. See why I need Montessori?
Tiger loves his sensory box. Here he is scooping dinosaur 'eggs'.

More, More, More, Said the Baby
