Term 4: Twenty Lesson with JGC

It’s finally an end. Today we had our last lesson in PlayNest and Yvette will be promoted to PlayClub next year. I think I am going to miss some of the mummies and babies there. I think Yvette will miss May. Both May and Yvette can play very well together. I have never seen they fight over toys, they always wait for each other to finish playing then they will proceed. What a chemistry they have. Wendy, May’s mum always claims that they have fate. Oh well, I hope we can stay in touch. (Keeping in touch is very easily said than done.)

The flow for the today class as follow:

-> Puppet Time: It’s a Gina Giraffe

-> Good Morning Song

-> Messy Activity: Making own Pizza

-> Snack Time: Party Time

-> Outdoor Play @ Indoor Playground

-> Music and Movement & Gift exchange moment

Again, Yvette didn’t have liking for giraffe.

Yvette did the pizza all by herself. I only peeled off the tape behind and she sticks the “topping” onto the pizza. That’s why it all out away from the pizza.

I love Christmas, it a season for sharing joy. We had our First Christmas Party today. Love the atmosphere created by the teachers.

At the end of the class, the kids have their gift exchange. I collected the certificate of graduation for Yvette and we have group photo taking.

Term 4: Nineteen Lesson with JGC

Everything went well in this morning except I almost forgotten we need to attend class.

The flow for the today class as follow:

-> Puppet Time: It’s a Giraffe (I have forgotten the name)

-> Good Morning Song

-> Messy Activity: Noisy Activity: Cymbals Clash!

-> Snack Time: Cookies (All food serve in JG are mostly organic.)

-> Outdoor Play @ Indoor Playground

-> Music and Movement

Yvette didn’t have liking for giraffe. When it came near; she shies away.

Yvette loves the playing with Cymbals and we have that at home too. But as there were so many babies/toddlers playing with it, it’s really noisy.

I collected all the art works done by Yvette from Teacher Winnie last lesson. I was so happy to see them. It’s just like collecting my daughter’s report book.

After class, I headed Tangs for our lunch. The nursing room at Tangs was so cosy. I managed to get a pair of sock for Yvette. Tangs tied balloons onto the toy dogs as part of the décor. Yvette and I were so amused by the idea and both of us kept looking at it. It’s so CUTE! Personally I like the dog a lot and I have requested them to keep one for us as currently it went out of stock.

Term 4: Eighteen Lesson with JGC

This morning hubby was around to help out. He bathed Yvette for me and I have more time to prepare the necessary. But hubby had to leave home before us as his medical appointment was at 10.00 am and Yvette was upset to see her dad left home without her.

The flow for the today class as follow:

-> Puppet Time: Pearlcy Pig (weird name)

-> Good Morning Song

-> Messy Activity: Playing with sponge and ice

-> Snack Time: Crispy Brown Rice (All food serve in JG are mostly organic.)

-> Outdoor Play @ Indoor Playground – Playing with mud – made of corn flour and colouring agent.

-> Music and Movement

Yvette wasn’t interested in playing the mud but she was fine with the sponge and the ice. In fact, she is playing the sponge every day. Something will take her attention for 10 to 15 mins in the bath room.

While some babies/toddlers were playing with the mud, she proceeded to the kitchen area. I think she really like this toy.

It was pouring when the class ended. Daddy made a quick decision to rush over from Shaw House to Forum when the rain was not that heavy. We have lunch together and headed home.

P/S: Sonya was that you at Daiso today who had stroked Yvette?

Term 4: Seventeen Lesson with JGC

This morning was an extremely early morning for me. Yvette didn’t go back to her dream land after the morning feed and we both were up by 8 am. Since we were early, I brought her to market and do marketing and then of course, we were early for class. And she was in high spirit when we left home.

JGC - 2nd Term12

The flow for the today class as follow:

-> Puppet Time: Pearlcy Pig (weird name)

-> Good Morning Song

-> Messy Activity: Banana Exploration

-> Snack Time: Cookies (All food serve in JG are mostly organic.)

-> Outdoor Play @ Indoor Playground

-> Music and Movement

IMG_1542

The messy activity didn’t benefit us today. It was all about peeling off the banana’s skin and touching and feeling the banana. I have done this with Yvette long ago. But definitely did benefit some of the child in class.

Yvette liked Pearlcy. She didn’t turn away from “her” when “she” was approaching. Yvette kissed her goodbye when we were leaving too at the end of the class.

I am glad Yvette didn’t throw any tantrum when she was feeling tired. (Is this a sign of going to drop off her morning nap??? PLEASE don’t wake up so early ok, my girl. I need the 2 hours sleep!!!) We were in our usually routine (having her lunch at nursing room at Scott Isetan.) and she dozed off during the bus ride home. (She slept thru the whole afternoon. She woke up around 4 plus.)

Term 4: Sixteen Lesson with JGC

As mentioned, this week is Daddy’s week. But it seemed most daddies were not available. Today only one daddy attended the class.

And the flow for the today class as follow:

-> Puppet Time: Sydney Snail (weird name)

-> Good Morning Song

-> Messy Activity: Potato Printing (Paper, Potato, sponge, Pink paint)

-> Snack Time: Banana (All food serve in JG are mostly organic.)

-> Outdoor Play @ Indoor Playground

-> Music and Movement

After assisting Yvette for so many lessons on craft, I was surprise Yvette took initiative to do the painting all by herself today. Perhaps she likes the pink paint?

JGC - 2nd Term11

The kids were allowed to play water during the outdoor play. Yvette lost interest in playing them after 5 mins. Maybe she could get the chance to play this at home. She moved on to slide instead.

Usually after music and movement, I will let Yvette wander around in the room. Yvette will normally moves toward the organ. So far I didn’t see her slamming on it, hitting the keys anyhow. But she loves to press the button on the keyboard. I am aware Yvette love music and movement a lot too. She always shakes her body whenever she hears the music in the background. (She responds to all type of music; even they are Hokkien song, India song, Malay song, etc.) And I received compliment from Teacher Winnie that Yvette was the role model for the “Music and Movement” today. Yvette could do all the hand signs for all the songs sang and she was doing it thru out the session.

We do have plan to let Yvette learn piano when she is much older but someone advise me to let her play with violin first instead.

Let me see how it goes.

Term 4: Fifteen Lesson with JGC

This week is Daddy’s week. But hubby won’t be able to make it.

And the flow for the today class as follow:

-> Puppet Time: Sydney Snail (weird name)

-> Good Morning Song

-> Messy Activity: Banana Printing (Paper, Laminated outline for Banana, sponge, Yellow paint)

-> Snack Time: Cookies. (All food serve in JG are mostly organic.)

-> Outdoor Play @ Indoor Playground

-> Music and Movement

Yvette was kind to Sydney Snail, she seemed to like her, and she even kissed her goodbye before we left. Perhaps she is not furry.

Sydney Snail

Finally she didn’t mind to touch the paint again.

After the class, I met my niece for lunch at Far East. After our lunch we wandered around in the mall before head home.

JGC - 2nd Term10

This is what Yvette normally does when she enters a store. Search for basket then begin her shopping journey

P/S: Thanks Lazymummy for sharing. I like my new entry!

Term 4: Fourteen Lesson with JGC

Morning was a breeze. I wonder was that the thirteen lessons and bring me bad luck!

The class was very small today. Only 7 babies. And the schedules for the class as follow:

-> Puppet Time: Freddie Frog

-> Good Morning Song

-> Messy Activity: Carrot Collage

-> Snack Time: Honey dew

-> Outdoor Play @ Indoor Playground

-> Music and Movement

Carrot Collage

Yvette was friendly to Freddie today. Hmmm, I wonder why there was a change in her attitude. The messy activity for today is doing a carrot collage. Material used was glue, paper cut carrot, paper cut stem, yarn, paper streamers. Yvette refused to touch the glue, (hmmm don’t like sticky feeling?) but she didn’t mind to put those yarn and streamers on to the glued carrot. But I have to finish the craft for her. We have a sharing session with the Head of Department of Early Learning, and this over-ran the time allocated for the play. We rushed off the music and movement with a few songs only.

After the class, we headed to Paragon for lunch and I run some errands after our lunch.

P/S: I have changed the format of updating this post. I wanted to make it simple and easy for me to update.
