All the activities for Ayden

image

Being concentrating of his surrounding. Today he works with cubes and placing all of the same color in a line.

image

This activity needs concentration skill, and of course fine motor skill as well.

image

Using blocks to do up a picture as seen from the tablet is not easy for Ayden. He needs lots of practicing in order to achieve that.

image

He tried to fix something but not what was seen from the picture.

image

He understand the concept of Large, Medium and small. So I’ve got him this activity on where to place certain items. He did a simple ones with me.

image

Since the interest in learning is high, I guess it’s good to introduce him some sight words just like Adelle. He loves to read after me.

image

And learning to count with pom poms is important! He loves to count as well. So no doubt it’s an activity which he had done tons of time, but it’s never a boring activity for him because he just love to count!

Learning of Addition and Sight words.

image

Let’s learn addition in another way. Using dot a dot ink and dot the right number as seen fr the magnetic number.

image

And so after dotted all the little dots, she will count all the dots seen there and that’s the number she will get after added up.

image

And so, she got all the numbers done up and the finally digit she had got. It’s a simple learning activity for a child who is totally new in doing addition.

image

And so, this is the activity!

image

Getting to know all the sight words is important. In another 2mths+ time, Adelle will be in k1,its another step of her growing milestone.

image

Therefore, I’ll try to introduce her as much sight words as possible.

But again, to read and learn just like this is impossible. I need her to hands on with it so that she will have better understanding.

And so when it’s her turn to read up for me, I know she learned because she could tell me some of the words that she had learned from the activity I gave her.

As for addition, it’s good to introduce her now so that she gets better idea of what is addition so as to intro her subtraction after she had better understanding of addition.

Let’s learn together with Adelle

image

I’ve did a simple counting session with Adelle. That’s to do addition with her. I feel it’s time she gets to know what is addition although it might be quite a while before she will be taught in school. It’s always good to expose the kids with things that they will be learning soon.

image

And so, she gets so interested in this simple activity on addition.

image

On how addition for this activity will look like.

image

I’ve also taught her on what is curve and straight..

image

Trying her best to understand it.

image

And so, the simple teaching aids I’ve done for her.

She is learning well but I’ve ran out of ideas to teach her, so everyday, I’m always found sitting in front of the pc trying to source for ideas to teach her..

It can be pretty challenging

Working with numbers.

image

I’ve always love matching activities for Ayden because it enhance their learning ability even faster.

image

Moreover, Ayden loves matching activity so much that I find it hard to reject him. So, I’ve thought of something simple for him to try.

image

Finding the same numbers with magnetic numbers and gingerbreadman numbering.

image

Another activity with numbers again. This time round with numbers and words seen on the paper not only for him to count the right pom poms for the right numbers, but also to intro him the word for each number.

image

My little son is into this, isn’t that so?

image

All right, here’s how it should be.

image

Counting with numbers is fun. He gets to see the number and count the right number pom poms and place it into the muffin cups

image

He counted and get the right numbers.

image

Working with numbers is fun.

It’s a great theme to follow and the children get so hands on with this theme that made the learning interest grew stronger.

Personally, I love to teach Ayden on Numbers because he simply love it so much beside alphabets.

I don’t know why, but he just love it that much!

The meals, the desserts

image

Just on Tuesday, we had a very short trip out to somewhere nearby home to get our groceries done up. By the time the kids nap, I’ve decided to bake and prepare dinner while the husband is busy with all these clearing up the house.

So I’ve got these simple stuff done up within that two hrs while the kids nap.

image

I’ve always remember to give the children like either yogurts, puddings or Yakult after their lunch. Thanks to a mummy who shared this and the children love it very much that, I need to get like 6 cups of yogurts and 4 cups of puddings to be enough for a week supply. As Adelle and Ayden will have a cup each after their meals.

So it’s so much about sharing and learning as I go along. Are you feeling /doing the same as well?

All about Sherryl’s purchases

image

Did I mention that I’m so into these fabric tapes that I’ve grabbed almost all designs from daiso? So today, when I chance upon the website, I’ve decided to go for more and ordered them a few weeks back. It’s so tempting and I long for more beautiful designs to come. It comes so handy when I need to do any diy stuff. One of it was my magnetic clothepegs for the kids birthday, can you remember it?

image

These animals stencils! All right, it was selling real cheap and I’m wondering if I should just grab them and store for the kids birthday goodies bags item next year. And so I did! Good things must grab, which I’ve always told myself. Be it whether is it too early, so long as it’s cheap and can be store, I don’t mind buying first.

image

A pity, I didn’t order this set of kitty cutters mainly because I’ve a couple of kitty cutters at home. So these two sets are for my sisters!

image

I’m sure as soon as I’ve posted these, many are interested of where I’ve gotten them. Well, it’s the work of my husband who found them somewhere in the North side of shopping mall. It’s like selling at 3 for $1. It makes a great party favor isn’t it?

image

Knowing that I’ve learned and loved to bake lately, these are my little damage from Phoon Huat. It’s so simple and nice and cheap!!

image

These are for the children and we grabbed them during offer. Was like less than $65 for all of these.

image

Can you spot these carter’s and osh gosh purchase that we had ordered a month back. I love my kids in these brand of clothes and most importantly it’s so much cheaper than in sg!

image

I bet I did not post about these kitty cutters which I’ve bought a while back! I’m so in love with kitty cutters lately as well and it’s a cheap buy. Say $6 for one set of these kitty cutters. And it works out so well that I can dump all my previous cutters.

image

Fibally got my hands on these nikitin cubes. It meant to be for right brain teaching and this is more suitable for say 3yrs up. For Adelle, there’s no issue in doing it. For ayden, it’s pretty hard and I have to like train him from the very beginning. Perhaps I will start him with just 4-5cubes.

image

From ELC sales. I could say it’s a very good sales and lots of goods to be purchased. But I still to limit myself in all these educational buying.

Be it for myself, for the kids, when comes to sales, I’ll grab them! Of course will try to grab those which are useful, isn’t that so?

image

And so after a month or so of waiting, the bread maker finally arrived. All right, Dear bought this from Groupon some time back and was asking of I’m interested in this knowing that I’m pretty into baking lately and had wanted to own one bread maker for the longest time.

And so when we saw that Groupon is having a promo, we decided to go for it. And….. It came on the day whereby we were not home! :(

So we gotta go and self collect it from singpost. :(

Whatever it is, we gotten thus bread maker and hopefully very soon, we will be able to use it!

Banana chocolate chips muffins in the baking

image

And so, I’ve decided the next batch of bakes to be banana chocolate chips muffins. Look at these lovable polka dots muffin cups. I’m so in love with them. Those who knows me, I’m a polka dots lover, so if there’s anything to do with polka dots, be sure to see me owning them.

Therefore, when comes to muffin cups, if there’s anything related with polka dots,, you will see them in my baking section in the house.

image

My goodness! The banana chocolate chips muffins are ready to be eaten. This is the second batch which I’ve did it real yummy in a way that thanks to a mummy who shared this ‘secret recipe’ with me.

Indeed, the recipe to these muffins tasted real soft and yummy, not forgetting that I’ve used top flour in my baking for this time round.

Do you know that, if I were to bake once a week, it saved me from all the buying of bread for 2 times a week. Yes, normally I’ll get like 2x of a loaf of bread per week. Now with all these baking, I’m getting like only once a week for a loaf of bread.

Moreover, it’s healthier to have homemade muffins, isn’t that so?

Foam stickers activity

image

This day, we did a craft work together, that’s to peel these foam shapes stickers and paste it at any part of the white card to do some decoration base on their creativity.

image

Look, what is Adelle planning to do?

image

And it seems that she was pretty proud of her work..

image

And so, this was what she did!

image

And Ayden is doing great.. Very carefully, he peels of the stickers and tried to paste it on the white card.

image

And so, another child who is so proud of his work as well.

image

And they managed to do a good job together.

I bet this is another great fine motor skill activity for both of the kids.

For the older one, it trained her creativity, and trained the younger one on fine motor skill. It’s a great teaching idea forĀ  both 4/2yrs old.
