Parenting journey

Hello everybody, I’m Adelle, I’m Ayden Chew!

image

We are happy sister and brother who are staying in Sengkang with our parents.

image

We always hold hands together whenever we are feeling worried or wanna do something together.

image

image

And we enjoyed each other company. The brother who loves to listen to any instructions given by the sister. While the sister who loves to lead and behave just like a big sister.

image

image

image

And the little cheeky son, Chew Zhen Hui, Ayden.

Sweetie pie, Chew Zhi Xuan, Adelle.

I’ve always love to blog about my two darlings. Everyday being with them, the type of feeling is marvelous.

BUT!!

They get into my nerves at times. Especially when Ayden doesn’t share sometimes of what he is holding, and Adelle tends to complain of ayden behavior.

It’s just the beginning with more to come now that they are coming to 5 and 3 comes next Jul and Aug.

Parenthood is not an easy task, I’ll try my best to learn on it and understand even better than now.
Yes, put myself in the situation of my kids. This is a good way to understand them even better.

Alphabet practicing for Ayden

image

image

image

Learning of alphabets is important. I feel that a child need to learn the very basic before attending pre school.

It’s a blessing that Ayden knows his alphabets very well before he is 24mths of age.

Now he can read freely and could point very fast of the letters we want him to get.

Of course this activity is a reinforcement for him to hands on with. Something which I feel is a good exercise for him as well.

Home learning with Ayden.

image

Count the number of pom poms and place the right number next to it.

I’ve used this activity tons of time but never get bored with it because I’ve use the the same idea yet different way of teaching.

As children need to practice more in any theme which they had learned in order to remember it always.

image

image

The concept of Big and Small learning activity is interesting. Today, I’ve did with Ayden on where to place these farm animals to the correct category.

He is practicing it pretty well yet there are still rooms for improvement.

image

image

image

Forming words by using these magnetic alphabets. In this way, Ayden can understand not only the word but also to learn how to spell it as well.

image

image

image

Oh did I mention that Ayden always wants to learn what Adelle is learning. Yes that’s him. Each time he sees Adelle who sits on the chair and doing her lesson time, he was it too and kept bugging me for it by saying ‘time, time’ (study time words which I’ve always gather the kids for lesson),

So on that day he saw that Adelle is learning about earth continents and oceans, he wants that too..

So, I’ve decided to let him have a go.

image

image

This little boy just love numbers so much that he can’t get enough of NUMBERS!

So I reinforce this activity again with him for the most number of time.

image

image

I’m glad to own this set of tangram teaching material. Beside using tangram to form a picture which is very much suitable for the older one, for Ayden he needs something slightly more simple.

So, I’ve a ready design templates here for him to fill up the right shapes. All right these tangram templates can be easily found online while I got mine from Growing Fun.

Sightwords and earth continents and oceans

image

image

image

Surprisingly, Adelle knows almost all the sight words from this whole box. I’ve to agree that I’ve given her like less than 10times of practices, today she can read out almost all of the sight words.

I did not teach her much and yet she can master these on her own by looking and understand pretty fast.

That’s a good sign, Adelle!

image

Practising on earth continents and oceans every now and then.
Today she could understand better of what are continents and oceans.

It’s always simple to get adelle to sit down for lesson time with me every night.

But it’s a challenge to think of what to teach her. Because for her age, she needs to learn something more challenging. Those that Ayden is learning now is way too easy for her.

Let’s bake with Adelle and Ayden. Lately I’ve been giving them the chance to bake together. And yes, it turns out to be a great learning experience for them. They hands on with baking and learn many experiences along the way.

image

Looking very pro, Adelle helps to pour in the egg. She pretty much enjoy this and is always looking forward to her turn to hands on with.

image

Next comes Ayden. Seeing how Adelle pours in the egg, he wanna have a go out of it. So there he goes, pouring out the sugar into the wet mixture.

Another pro way of doing it for this little man.

image

image

And so, both kids help in stiring the wet mixture. Yes, both of them must stir it to have an experience of how the wet mixture feels like.

image

image

After combining the wet and dry mixture together, they are helping to fold in and the batter is up pretty soon!

image

And so, both kids help to dry up the bowls and spoons after I’ve finish washing them. They are so enjoying every single steps.

From baking till clearing up, it gets simpler and simpler as we bake. No fuss, nothing. I’m sure they will love doing all these and….

image

Here comes the end product of Granola muffins which the kids had helped in baking.

The satisfaction is there knowing that they get to eat the muffins after so much work.

If you ask me, does the little princess at home loves to pose, I’ll tell you, she loves it!!!

Each time I took a picture of her, be sure to hear her say this, ‘Mummy, I want to take a picture like this, like that’

I think she never had enough of posing while taking pictures. And worst of all, she came up with her own kind of poses!

image

image

Dot a dot ink to dot on his name. It’s that simple! In fact, beside his name, I can actually write down some other sightwords for his learning.

That’s what I’m planning to do for the next teaching activities.

He loves to dot the ink on the word, and this is really great for a child to learn more sightwords right now at this age.

image

image

image

Since Ayden loves numbers so much, I’ve decided to let him try this method of learning. To fill up the number with these tangram.

Wow, isn’t tangram useful in many ways? Beside using it to form a design, can use it to fill up any pictures.

Knowing that is is one great activity, I’ve decided to let Ayden has a hands on with it. Indeed, he loves it all.

Miscellaneous activities for Adelle

image

image

image

image

I’ve wanted Adelle to understand the concept of Greater than or smaller than.

So this activity using Lego works so well that she had great fun learning thru this type of playing method.

Well, it’s so much simpler than I’ve thought in order to teach her greater than or smaller than.

image

image

Here I wanna emphasize on this. Playing with gears is fun. Because Adelle uses these to fix something she can think of.

She makes aeroplane, cars, which is very useful as it enhance her creativity. It serves as very great connector tools.

image

image

All right, that’s how Adelle learns about the different sightwords seen on the paper. The first was to find the letters and match, after which to read out the word.

The second was to find the color of pom poms as seen from the word given.

image

image

Throw a dice, get a number insert the right number of beads into the pipe cleaner.

That’s how Adelle learns.
