The second part of our lesson plan covered plenty of activities and mainly on books. That’s because Yvette really loves to do activity books.
Pre-writing and Other Activities Related to Letter B
Pre-writing activity worksheets for Letter B
Colouring Activity which she dislike it this round. (She keeps asking for Apple Tree.)
My sister joined her in one session of colouring using paint. She was so busying playing with paint and totally not interested in getting her work done!
And here is the Maths pattern we did for Letter B.
Not forgetting Kumon!
On Learning Chinese
We continue reading 明明 series on iPod Touch. We are at book 5 – 小鱼.
There are the characters we learned and revised. We also continued revisiting those words we learned from JGC too.
|Set 1 – 我的身体||Set 2 – 反义词|
I am happy Yvette had learned to apply the words I read aloud to her in her daily life conversation. She goes “我高高兴兴地去买东西.” This proven reading aloud is effective. From this book – 奇怪的礼物， she learned 奇怪 – strange, 礼物 – present and she does understand the meaning too.
On Learning Maths
I have never plan this. This is a bonus. I found out she like to do maths because I always left the activity books around after reviewing them. I brought this activity book for only S$2 last year.
Look at this piece of work, nothing special?
Oh well, I do read about although tot could recite number that doesn’t mean they really know what they are counting. Even they could count, they might not get it correctly.
For this piece of work, Yvette didn’t really count (as in using her finger to count the number of objects on the paper) except for the one right below the activity book in the collage and the worksheet beside it. By the look into the picture, Yvette could tell me the correct answer.
That doesn’t sound fantastic? But I will like to give her credit for it. Perhaps all these look easy to us, but I think it’s never easy for tots.
We also practiced writing 1 & 2 too.
I also found out she could recite 5 by 5. (From 5 to 100)
And we did the number puzzle from 1 to 20 too.
Learning Thru Play
Actually she really plays many many toys everyday. I am trying to pen down play that is more interesting (or planned) rather than what she does everyday.
Fixing vegetable puzzle. However, this puzzle didn’t get her interest going.
Building a house using the wooden blocks.
I would like to introduce more threading and lacing to Yvette but then these two areas are something Yvette doesn’t really like. This is important as this activity requires a lot of control and a steady hand. Perfect practice for fine motor development.
Practical Life Skills
Practical life skill this round involve very much with the vegetable. Doing practical life skill enhance their fine and gross motor skills. Many people don’t realize how these skills affect a child. The development of fine and gross motor skills allows them to perform better in other, more academic and physical ways.
Pluck bean sprout. She is more interested in looking into her plant.
Pluck Spinach. We eat this vegetable every week. I will get her to help me every Sat now. Plucking of vegetable is very good for pincer grip. And removing the fibre strip from the spinach require more dexterity.
Removed seed from papaya. She kept holding on to her box of cereal while doing it. I am impressed she could finished removing those seeds with only one hand!!!
Pegging. She never like. She only tried once!
Button up. Great fun. Her favourite toy for these 3 weeks.
Other Learning Activities
Learning using More About Starfall is a must for Yvette everyday.
I am really impressed she could sort 17 shapes all by herself. But she does have a problem recognising 五 and 正.
She loves anything to do with letters. We did some spelling too but I have forgotten what I have taught her.
She learned some concept words too and they are….
P/S: Before & After are from last lesson. Up & Down are meant for lesson 3.
She could differentiate left and right already!
