Work at home.

image

The kids work very hard every afternoon. They love learning through play activities.

image

Still undecided of which letter to place the cubes.

image

Finally he placed the cube on the letter I’ve called out to him.

image

Ayden is getting the hang out of it.

image

Adelle loves this new teaching idea.

image

Before she gets started with this new set.

image

Let’s get started!

image

Finally managed to print out this set of Fireman theme package. It’s a great teaching materials I would say.

image

Ayden tried this and I would say, it’s great for him to find the letter using cubes to place on the right letter called.

image

Under fireman package, this set is great for Adelle. She learns about bar chart using this activity.

Well, for this package, some are suitable for Adelle while some are suitable for Ayden.

Or rather, I would love to try some that are not meant for Ayden age for him. I mean I will never know of it works on him or not if I never try.

I just love doing these activities with the kids!

Teaching and learbing nevers get bored.

image

These days, after their nap, we love to set up this mini table for their learning activities there. It’s fun, it’s great!

image

And I love to see the way they work together.

image

This was what Ayden was doing. He placed the small pom pom on the letter that was being call out.

image

Adelle ‘breaks’ the egg and found one sight word, read, understand and write the word found.

image

It’s another round of learning letters. In another way though.

image

Gave me a gentle smile before starting this interesting activity.

image

When Adelle did not go to school, I’ll occupy her with something while I spend a bit of time coaching Ayden before she gets her turn of lesson time with me.

image

And so, this was how they work together as a whole during the day time when we are going for some activities time.

If not during the day while Adelle is in school, I’ll be giving Ayden the lesson while in the evening, it’s Adelle’s turn to have it and Ayden can have free play.

That’s how I normally work with the kids. I only surf the net when the kids are napping. Check on fb or instragram once a while when I’m slightly free.

I believe so much in early teaching that even if I surf the net in the afternoon, I’ll source for teaching ideas. No doubt lately, I’m sourcing for party and teacher’s day ideas.

There were so many teaching ideas that I would want to start doing with the kids. Sometimes it’s due to lack of materials or time. I gotta go slow as well, if not I’m sure before I can get more ideas, the kids are already done with what they are doing.

Mickey theme party for Ayden this coming Sunday

image

image

image

It’s Mickey mouse Birthday  theme this coming Sunday, 4th Aug. It’s also Ayden actual Birthday as well. Celebrating for him with immediate family members.

Getting ready some of the decorations that were used over at Build a bear. Simply just reuse them and make another round of layout for the home celebration.
As Build a bear only allows Birthday cakes and drinks, I can’t do up any sweet treats station on the table provided. This time round at home, I’m going to do a very simple one beside the buffet for the celebration for immediate family members.

The goodies bags which I’ve did for Ayden to distribute to his classmates in GuG this Sat. We will be getting a very small simple cake for cake cutting celebration in school. I guess this is yhe only good way to celebrate in school as he don’t go for daily lesson in childcare. I’m sure it’s a good one for him after all, Adelle celebrated her 2nd Birthday in Leapschoolhouse 2yrs back. I guess, Ayden gets such benefit as well.

After planning for the decorations I want, the type of cupcakes(at Build a bear) , the design of how I want the goodies bags to be like, finding themes printables. I’m so into doing it and hope that their next Birthdays come soon again so that I can start planning. Another 6mths +, and I can start planning again. (I must be mad!)

Seriously, I hope this is something that I’ll make my children remember that how their birthdays are being celebrated.

My Bento journey

Seeing all my Bento work, I’m so glad for I finally comes so far. It was an interesting journey to go whereby I’m so enjoying every work that I did.

I google for ideas, but I can say most of these Bento that I’ve done are mostly my own ideas of how I want it to be.

It’s something cute yet simple I would call it. Can I say it looks more suitable for a 4 and 2yrs old kids?

Keep this ongoing, knowing that my children love it as much as I do.

Doing of jelly hearts.

image

All the ingredients needed to make jelly hearts. Well, lack of strawberries as I can’t find the suitable ones.

image

In the end, these jelly heart cups still work the best compared to the plastic wine cups.

image

Crash the digestive biscuits till very fine before adding the butter and mix well to have this kind of texture. After that transfer into the jelly cups and put into the fridge to freeze it for at least more than 15mins.

image

While freezing the biscuits, I’ll mix the cream cheese till its fluffy before adding in the icing sugar and vanilla essence and lastly add in the gelatine solution(mix water and gelatine powder together)

image

Once done, pour in the cream cheese into the jelly cups and freeze it for at least another 3-4hrs or more before adding the jelly.

image

Get the jelly ready by adding 250ml of hot water to the jelly powder, mix well and add another 250ml of cold water. Let it cool down before adding into the cups.

image

All right, time to pour into the jelly cups n freeze it. Ready to eat in another 3hrs or less time once it’s sodify.

My first trial of doing Jelly hearts. Still short of the strawberries which I think the next time round, I should be adding it in.

Still can’t capture well in balancing the four sides of the cups. Need more practicing again!

Hopefully I can do a better job in preparing this for Ayden 2nd Birthday celebration next Sun!

What we did in the day?

image

These days, I’ve been preparing for new teaching aids for the Childen. So, they love to ‘help’ out in things I’m doing. I used to do all the laminating and cutting while they are having their nap time. Lately, I’ll try to laminate the printable just before they have their afternoon nap. Of course, Ayden tends to ‘help’ by touching every part of the laminator, or even the laminated sheet. I will have my tablet to entertain him, or have him to help me with those printables that are done up.
For Adelle, she helps by placing the ready printables out from the laminator.

image

Or they tend to do their own activities while I’m busy with the laminating. Yes, I’m glad to have invested in this whiteboard whereby it’s pretty useful on the kids. Not only can I do the teaching with it, the kids can keep themselves busy on their own while I’m busy with other things.

image

And so, this was how the kids did their work in the afternoon after their nap. I’ll be sure to do one assessment book with Adelle and get something interesting to keep Ayden occupied with since he had his lesson earlier in the morning while Adelle is in school.

image

It works just as great whereby something that kept the two kids learning going stronger day after day when I tried to have a simple lesson with them everyday.

image

Some cut out felt objects which I’ve cut out days ago. This is great whereby the two can use it together while having their lesson with me. It deals with counting for Ayden, while Adelle can fix the trees with apples in her own little way.

image

And so, after the activities, they get to eat the fruits for tea break before we get real busy.

Yes, the kids get their fruits every evening not counting those they gotten in the morning in their Bento.

I’ll make sure they eat twice, be it the same type of fruits or not. However, they love to have fruits time after their learning activities.

I love it as well!

Ayden, my 2nd born.

I love to capture every single moment of my children. This is the only moment when they are still young and once I miss this stage, there will never be such a chance anymore.

I love to dress them up a little, every parents love to dress up their children. Same here, I don’t do it on purpose that they must wear the nicest and the very branded clothes.

So long as they look presentable, I’m all right. Many will ask where do I get most of their clothes.

In fact, I bought osh kosh or carter’s and ship back from US. Why so? Because it’s as cheap as SGD10-12 per piece, I’ll definitely grab it when it’s on sale.

I do buy from Singapore, but depending whether is the clothes on sales or such.

Nevertheless, I still love clothes fr carter’s or osh kosh!

Our #1&#2,Adelle and Ayden.

image

We had kids, they are Adelle and Ayden, our little precious. Long before we had them, we hope to have kids soon after our wedding, it took us almost 2yrs to have our first born, Adelle.

image

Of course, another 2 yrs for our 2nd born to be with us.

image

I just love son, he is just too charming in certain angle

image

As always, he never fail to make us laugh out happily each time…

image

Our 1st born is marvelous! Very ladylike and timid no doubt she does go up to our nerves, but compared to other kids of her age, she is indeed an indoor child.

image

Just our joy!

We’ll and carry on to strive for the very best for our kids, knowing that it’s God bless.

Doing art and craft together.

image

Tear and paste activity always keep the kids busy as usual.

image

They are having more fun than usual while doing this art and craft activity.

image

As for Ayden, he gets better and better. He used to not able to paste the tore paper on the white drawing block, but now he can do it so much better.

image

Although it’s a very simple art and craft activity for Adelle, still she likes it so much that she had always asked me to give her more such crafts.

My two kids had grown up in such a way that they are able to do their work together.

It’s great, it’s fun!
