Our weekend

image

Just before berries, the kids had a picture taken by me.

image

While the kids are in class, we had couple time…

We love to sit down for a cup of coffee at Starbucks while the kids are in class..
Sitting down to update each other on stuff is great during couple time like this.

Yes especially we are going for a holiday in June. All the more we need to discuss about the itinerary when the children are in class…

Play base learning in Mar.

image

Addition board game for the two kids.

image

image

Every evening without fail, the children will be doing their homework using our teaching aids at home.

image

This is fun! Using Chinese sightwords, got the kids to read it after choosing the sightword that they want.

image

image

The children did patterning on their own… They created it and leave it there for me to ‘check’

image

image

Addition using beads and numbers to form a sum based on the card each of them have.

image

image

Another way to work with Addition. Count the numbers, find the right digit and place it at the side.

image

Worksheet time! I love to print some worksheets online for the children to work with.

Dinner..

image

As a sahm, I’ll cook, does the housework, attend to the kids needs etc..
Beside giving the kids play base learning I do cook our meals daily.

Few days back, I’ve decided to boil watercress soup which the family love this soup pretty much.
I used to dislike soup so much that I refuses to drink a bowl of it. But ever since I started to have my own family, I boil soup every day for the family and slowly try to drink a bowl each time we have soup for the day…

As for the next dish, it was lemon chicken with onions. Randomly try this recipe as this was the very first time I did this dish.. True enough, this was a nice dish! All of us love it so much though..

Updates on the kids teaching and learning stuff

image

image

We did this together.
Top: belongs to ayden
Bottom : belongs to Adelle..

And so, I’ve got the kids to do this interactive journal again. Printed out this worksheet and gotten them to throw the dice on hand, get the two numbers and did their addition and subtraction after which.

Something that the kids are working with play base learning yet learning about addition n subtraction.

image

One evening last week, we stayed in the bedroom to work with sightwords learning. I mean the children know and understand these sightwords, but I wanna reinforce again with them using our homemade teaching aids.

They pretty much enjoy learning this way.

We did addition using these colorful sticks… One of the topic in Adelle school textbook is dealing with Addition within ten. And so, I’ve came up with this idea for them to play with. Of course for Ayden this will be introduce to him in school closer to term four,still I feel it perfectly fine to teach him at home first before the school starts on this topic. True enough, he already mastered the skill of addition n subtraction, guess he shouldn’t have any problems dealing with these Maths sums when school introduce it to him.

Just last Fri, we went down to expo popular fair, by the time we are back home, it was still early and the children started to bug me to give them art n craft…
Therefore, I gave them what we had at home and asked them to work on it on their own. Yes they spend like more than 2hrs working with these crafts for their grandparents which we will be seeing them the very next day.

Activities we did at home.

We created our own craft materials for the kids to work with at home ever since they went to eat play love cafe…

Each time they need to do art n craft, they will bring down their own set of art materials…

image

image

Going down for bubble time is just as nice. They love it especially when we went down in the evening as we hardly find the time to go down in the evening for such play.

School holidays is just the best!
