Sight words blending activity

image

Let’s blend a word together activity for Adelle. This activity is to make Adelle more understanding of different sightwords.

image

Here it goes. Spin a word. That’s word family activity for my 4yrs old.

Adelle is at the stage whereby she will learn how to read different sightwords. As such, I want her to learn how to blend a word using these family words.

She is learning and was quite interested to know how does the word will sound like after she spin a word. This activity is what I’ll call it as learning thru play activity.

I don’t teach children with just read, write but I’ll try to find activities which they can learn yet in a playing manner.

So she loves this activity, so do I!

My new found hobby.

image

My new found hobby, this is one of them. To do up either chocolate or strawberry marshmallows pops with sprinkles and paper straws for the teachers on Teacher’s Day. This is to try it out.

image

Some sprinkles and strawberry chips.

image

These are paper straws and I’ve ordered online for these.

image

I uses these push pop containers to do up ready made Sara lee cake with homemade frosting. It turns out well!

image

These are what was done!

image

Homemade frosting with cream cheese, butter, icing sugar.

image

All that was needed except the icing sugar that was not pictured.

image

Look at what I’ve owned!

Lately I’m so into these stuff.. If only I’ve Google for these ideas earlier, on Ayden party, I should have marshmallows pops and push pops cakes over the party deco.

But I guess I still need to have more practicing before I set these items for Adelle 6th yrs old. As we don’t intend to hold a 5th Birthday party for Adelle except school celebration.

No doubt so, I’m already looking forward to do up such set up on her 6th, and Ayden 6th big parties.

Right now, I’m doing both for Teacher’s day. Hoping that it turns out great. :)

Making of face mask.

image

I’m in love upon seeing how sweet they can get after eating the Bento sets I’ve prepared for them daily.

image

There was this particular day whereby we did this face masks craft together. It’s origin from Lollibox and since Adelle had a set, Ayden has one too, but I used a piece of white paper to draw up the mask template for him.

image

And once they are ready, they are so proud to show me their ready made face masks.

image

Indeed, the face masks were so cute that I can’t help but to take more pictures out of it after looking at how beautiful it can get when they wear it.

The children had fun, so do I!

Reinforcement on different themes.

image

Threading is fun, and somehow, Ayden loves it and is getting better with it.

image

And so, this activity doesn’t get too difficult for him to hands on with after many weeks of practicing.

image

He loves numbers as well. Especially when come to matching of numbers, he can do it pretty well.

Although it’s always the same old activity which I’ve been letting the kids to work with. By doing so, I feel that it’s good for the kids as reinforcement more often beside learning more new things, will enhance their memories of what they have learned.

Beside learning thru play activities, Adelle does her jumbo book too!

image

This is her 3rd assement book. It’s a jumbo book and she is enjoying it.

image

When I don’t have any learning thru play activities for her on that day, she will do up some pages of her jumbo book.

image

Lately I did an activity with Adelle. It’s known as ‘what is a label.’ she loves it and I bet by lookong at the picture, you will know what is it all about, isn’t it?

image

Sight words activity. Getting Adelle to know more about the various words.

Homeschooling program with the kids are getting more interesting. I source for new ideas to teach Adelle, and she is so into it each time I gave her new learning activities.

I’m thankful that Adelle loves to learn. So this is part of the reason why I feel, I need to source for more ideas to keep her learning ability ongoing. In fact, I love to find more activities for her. :)

When both are sick at the same time.

image

These are the set of medication for Ayden. Gosh, it’s the first time he is taking so many bottles of medicine! He needs anti bitoics this time round due to some virus infections in his throat. Having fever and runny nose as well.

image

The set of medication for Adelle. Bad running nose with cough.

It’s the very first time whereby both kids got sick at the same time. It’s not easy and was thankful that the husband is back after his two weeks of reservist.

We brought the kids to the PD yesterday, and paid a total of $244 for everything.

Now the kids are on the way to recovery, I hope they get better after days later.

Heart shaped containers.

image

Happy because I’ve finally bought this heart shaped containers and I tried using a heart shape cutter to cut out the cake with frosting. This was what I’ve gotten.

image

These are the heart shaped cutters which I’m talking about. In the end, I used one which was closest to the size of this container.

image

Beside using cakes with frosting, (which I used push pop containers in the first place), I’m using these containers to make jelly hearts again, and is good to put sweet treats as well as a gift or for birthday parties.

Aren’t these a good idea as well?

Their first trial on Bento making.

On Ayden Birthday itself, we got the kids to hands on with some homemade pizza.

All of them were pretty excited with this ‘mission’ which we had planned for them.

They were so helpful and happy with this pizza making.

And so was Ayden who gets excited with his first trial on pizza making.

Of course, this idea came from Adelle. Not exactly Adelle, but from her class which I’ve decided to let her hands on with at home.

This hands on boy gets slightly satisfied with this activity till…..

He decided to have a bite out of it!

He ate non stop and gave me a happy look after placing the set of pizza aside(the one which he did)

Yay!! Feeling happy and satisfied with this first trial.

This is the first time the kids hands on with pizza making. The first was Bento making.

It’s good for hands on like this beside all the teaching activities. This is consider one great hands on which I used to do with my ex students in the past.

Now with Adelle and Ayden getting older and sensible in certain ways, they really can hands on with these activities pretty well.

I’m so looking forward for such activities with them.

Ayden turns 2 on 4th Aug 2013. We held a simple home party with immediate family members for him. He can’t help smiling happily after looking at the decorations I’ve did for him. All about Mickey theme party!

The agar agar mickey cake was a blast! It stands out so well and beautiful after ‘setting’ on the top of the homemade stand.

Of course, I choose fruits of similar color to the mickey theme, that’s red! Strawberry and grapes work out just as good.

Jelly hearts seen here are my third trial on it. It’s more successful and the color really blended in so well here. Cutlery with the same theme color works out well too.

Made some simple honey cornflakes with red n white dots of muffin cups with it. I’m so in love with the theme colors!

We ordered like the fruits tarts from Prima Deli to arrange them on the cupcake stands which I’ve bought like a month back. Initially had wanted to get some cupcakes, but after having second thoughts, we felt that the agar agar cake should be big enough. And we were right!

We were so full with that big agar agar cake! It’s big enough and worth the price for ordering that.

We homemade some pizza, and both kids helped us with it. I would say, it’s the color theme again.

Most importantly, the kids enjoyed birthday parties, and the smile on their face was a great one!

Of course, I’m proud of my creations! Was so in love with what I’m doing that I hope to create something even better for friends or the kids parties again if there’s any when come in the future.

Happy 2nd Birthday, my son!

Learning is fun!

image

Ayden loves to learn thru all these playing activities. He loves them all!

image

This is for counting activity. He learns to count by more practicing. I love to give him the same theme with different ways of teaching.

image

Look at that smile on his face. He is enjoying every single activities which I’ve given him.

image

He smile happily each time he gets to play with a new activity. I don’t know, but he jus loves hands on activities just like Adelle. Others who don’t understand feel that I’m forcing my kids to learn, but in actual fact, they just want to learn thru play.

image

To fix the correct shapes. It’s a two pcs puzzle.

image

He is very much into such activity.

image

This is to learn how to do measurement. Early years learning. Yes I started this activity earlier, so that I can let Ayden understand what is known as measurement.

image

And Mr Ayden is learning four sight words seen from the picture. He gets better after days of practicing.

I would say with more practicing at home from these learning activities, Ayden is in the midst of gaining more interest in learning. He loves to learn, and that how I manage to find more such activity for him to learn.

I strongly believe that kids learn through all these playing.  :)
