Homeschool Setup: October 2013


Lil Dragon: 15 months
Lil Tiger:  3 year 4 months

Lil Dragon is still exploring with her mouth when it's something new
and exciting to her.
The itty bitty things in 'class' are pretty meh to her by now
 but I still watch her very, very carefully.
Verrrry sneaky, this one. Almost like Smeagol.

Tiger is currently,
  • an emergent reader
  • doing simple additions and subtractions
  • very much into painting and coloring
His latest creation: The Solar System.
So abstract, kan?
I really love this painting of his but you can have it for RM 50.
Any takers?
Come on, may be worth millions one day.

I have no idea what to call this instead of circle time.
This is where we start our class and decides what Tiger would like to do.
We have his schedule, calender and some theme books.
This week, we are still reading Halloween books.
On the wall is his new Solar System poster.
(He can do Solar System for the whole year)

Math
Tiger is into counting now, so we will be focusing on that.

This is the math center as per his request
1. Balancing scale with counting bears {more or less}
2. Blue and red rods; 0-10 cards, number clips {zero to ten}
 3. Colored beads and blocks for free play/sums/patterning

Sorting 
Bought this box from Fun & Cheer for RM 6.80

Fine motor and Lil Dragon's corner

   Some stickers for Dragon's old can

 
Threading buttons for Tiger & an extra for Dragon (to minimize fighting)


 Reading station
Mother Goose and finger puppets for finger play
 Chinese (Shi Wu Kuai Du)
Reading pen
P&J
Kohwai and Young Word Family 
Brillkids

I wish I can say we do all the above but we don't.
Only when the kids feel like it.
Or we just read stories before bed.
Studies show that early reading don't make a difference in later academic achievement.
 
  
Music
Both the kids love playing with musical bells .
 I taped three A4 sheets together and drew a musical staff for him 
to place some felt notes on.
We use them for solfege.
 

Sensory bins
Dragon plays with the water beads EVERY night.

Sometimes, I am very lucky and I get this.
When I invite Tiger to join Lil Dragon, he replied.
No need. So smelly and wet. I crayon la..
=.="
Action betul

My Lil OCD requested for balloons and came up with this human burger.
He was carrying four but by the time I snap, he was left with these.
He is so nerdy, it hurts...hihi

My very cool lab creation?
Collecting dust...
Sigh..not easy to please these kids, you know.
