Homeschooling Fun: DIY Fishing Game

IMG_3747

Noah recently played with some fishing toys at his Gymnademics class, and I thought it was a good way to build his hand-eye coordination, and to teach him the names of the various sea creatures (technically, not all of them belong in the sea, but it's easier for me to call them sea creatures here). I found similar ... [ Read More ]

Playdate #13

After a short hiatus due to the haze, we were finally able to enjoy our outdoor playdate again this week. The children really seem to enjoy being outdoors, and sometimes, I think having our sessions outdoors can be even more productive, as there are less distractions (in the form of toys) around.  ...

We hosted this week's playdate, and I stepped out of my comfort zone to prepare the Practical Life stations for the first time. I've been opting to read stories to the children each week, and I think I should start trying out more of the other segments too, as it's a good learning experience for me. Sometimes, I wonder ...

Things Noah Says / Does #6 & #7

Noah has always been a rather friendly and affectionate child. He says hello to strangers and random animals when he meets them, and hugs almost anyone who asks for one. Recently, he has been quite the parrot, repeating almost everything we say, and mimicking our actions too.  ... [ Read More ]
