~Yvette is 23 mths~
Our child is like sponge. I bet everyone will agree with me. As they grow older, they will tend to pick up things faster, showing us signs they are learning. Although most of the time when I teach, Yvette tends to run away and act as though she is not listening, I am still glad she is someone who doesn’t mind to learn new stuff. Whenever I pass something new to her, she takes it on like a pinch of salt. I hope this attitude will be with her as she grows.
We did something new again for last week, new game and toy was introduced and we almost gotten them for free! Alas, we did not read as much as I wanted to. Perhaps it might be due to Yvette only loves me reading aloud and not looking at the illustration of the book. I wonder when she will start looking at each book that was given to her.

Alphabet Activity Theme of the Week: L is for Ladybird/bug
We traced letter L’s in upper and lower case with crayon as also sound out the letter with Yvette. (Source)
We used the Do-A-Dot Art Marker with this. (Source)
We read The Very Lazy Ladybird by Isobel Finn. And we like this story. This story is an adventure of a ladybird learning how to fly. Because she sleeps all day and night, the Very Lazy Ladybird doesn’t know how to fly…
We recite a poem and did a craft. (Source)
I did a puzzle for her but she is not interested in doing this puzzle with me. (Source)
And of course, daddy drew her some ladybirds.
One of her pillow casing is full of ladybirds. Sometimes she will point at those ladybirds and utter ladybird. And this is the reason I chosen this theme as well.
No other book was read beside the book above. Strange, how come I miss out reading other book…
We did mystery bag. 3 words were taught. Lemon, Lock and Leaf. And I found out Yvette like sour taste. She tasted the lemon not once but 3 to 4 times by her own initiative.
We are still on Reader Rabbit Playtime For Baby & Toddler and Starfall for computer time.
We skip the 口令. No listening activity.
No Songs and Rhymes.
The word learn from “我会读幼儿启蒙读物”- 数字 和 动作 are as follows:
Learning Shape, Colour
We learned Semi-circle while doing the ladybird craft.
Ops I miss out doing colour.
Learning Number & Date
9 was introduced. I like this set of learning card but we did not do much using them. I only used it to revise number 8 with Yvette. Courting the dot on the ladybird together with the card.
We read Counting Kisses by Karen Katz for learning number again.
I brought this giraffe number puzzle for S$5. And it has became Yvette’s favourite toy for now.
Daddy got this remote control car for free by redeem voucher using our credit card points. Yvette is loving it!
Fishing! Yvette seems to have some interest in this toy recently while we shopped. So I think it is about time to get out this toy from our cupboard that I brought 3 mths ago.
Yvette having more fun over the Shape toy. She loves stacking up toys finally though I think she still loves to knock them down.
Lastly while waiting for Daddy to come home on Sunday, we played all our musical instruments together!
Practical Life Skill(s)
I taught Yvette how to open a pad lock.
Other Learning Activities
Playground trip for Yvette was usual during weekend marketing. I simply love this picture of Yvette sliding down from the slide.
Yvette had a play date with Ashlyn on Wednesday. (We met up KaiKai as well to collect something from his mum. Thanks 😉 )
