Tot Learning Week 6 & 7 of 2010 (08th to 21st Feb 10)

In the past, I have been doing learning activities with Yvette without a proper theme. And sometimes I do, find something is missing. I finally found this site (I like) that could offer me activities associated with Alphabets and with a proper theme to follow.

This site is useful as it covers range of activities. Alphabet, Animals, Bible, Number, Books (The book recommendation is not always useful and going forward, I might use this site for reference), colours, Community Helpers, Crafts, Fairy tales, Holidays and Events (not relevant to me), Music, Numbers, Nutrition, Nursery Rhymes & Songs, Online Jigsaw Puzzle & Online story time and Activities. Most important, it provide link for us to download the learning materials and now make my job much easier. I can solely rely on this site if I don’t have much time to prepare extra activities for Yvette.

I only found this site on Wed, 17th Feb and start doing them on Friday with Yvette. It’s really beef up our learning curriculum.

I realized I have missed out teaching Yvette fruits and vegetables for the past few lessons. I will incorporate them into the new learning theme that I have adopted. I have yet expose Yvette to Art Appreciation as I am still trying to figure out how it should be done.

As CNY falls on the week 6, I have decided to combine two weeks learning activities as I really did very little on week 6.

Tot Learning Week 5 of 2010 (01st to 07th Feb 10)

The coming two weeks will be a busy week for our family. As we live with my FIL, a lot of relatives will be visiting us during CNY so we have to ensure we have enough goodies to serve the guest. I also have to ensure we have enough food to bring us thru till Tuesday.

For this week, I still manage to squeeze out some time for learning. I wonder what will be our schedule like for next two weeks.

We have not been playing educational toy. I finally included them into the “planned curriculum”. Going forward, I will like to ensure Yvette will get a dose of learning toy with me every day. I am still interested in setting up Montessori tray for learning but I have to hold back this idea till after CNY.

Getting Yvette to learn and read are two important areas I need to work harder. She doesn’t seem to be keen in learning nowadays. I certainly hope that it will be just another phase but it doesn’t seem to go off quickly.

Tot Learning Week 4 of 2010 (25th to 31st Jan 10)

Finally we moved back to learning letters. Letter D was the theme for last week learning. It’s kind of hard to manage time now with 4 days out. I try to squeeze in every little possible time to teach Yvette. I need to find time. I have withdrawn Yvette from next term Mandarin Playclub in order to have more time at home. We need some quiet time for reading too.

Reading with Yvette is a problem now here. She doesn’t seem to be interested in reading anymore and always never sit thru a book with me recently. The only book she does sit thru with me is Chicka Chicka ABC. So I only read aloud the book to her and try to get her attention. Hopefully I won’t spend great effort in getting her liking back.

I am getting less organized too. Where people using trays for daily activity, I think I am getting another toy rack to set up a system for Yvette to learn more effectively.

Tot Learning Week 3 of 2010 (18th to 24th Jan 10)

We manage to do “more learning” at home despite busy schedule of going to school. The timing and some changes we are going thru now, doesn’t seem to fit in nicely. Currently looking at other options and I might exercise the options to switch.

Tot Learning Week 2 of 2010 (11th to 17th Jan 10)

Busy week but we didn’t do much for her learning this week.

There were too many outings and celebration. I only manage to get the right book for her in the middle of the week and most likely will continue this book for another week before we move on.

Updating this post does upset me. Looking back the past week, made me realized I really never put in effort to teach Yvette. I need to catch up seriously.
