Tot Learning Lesson Plan (7th to 27th Nov 2010 ) – Part 1

I am trying my best to record everything I did on teaching Yvette to help me to remember.

I have very, very short memory now. 😦

Ever since I gave birth, my memory is failing. I couldn’t remember things like where I put my stuffs, what I need to do next, let alone appointments. I just missed one appointment on last Saturday because I was too occupied with some other things. (Mind you, I was reminded a day before this and yet my brain didn’t have memory space for it.)

So I get very detail in updating my homeschooling post. (And yet in some area I am still not detail enough.) Having said that, each post I need to edit up to 100+ pictures which putting me off from updating them. I am thinking to update them in piecemeal but then still in Thinking-in-Process mode. How I wish I have better camera, better photo taking skill and better software to edit pictures.

Yvette was down for the past one week and we didn’t do much home learning last week. I never plan to do any for this month too. I want to enjoy the year end and Christmas holiday. We can’t go out of town but I wanted to go Zoo, Jurong Bird Park (due to Penguin) and even to Universal Studio in this month but the weather is not in permitting us to go ahead.  Perhaps I should let Yvette skip school in the morning and since it only rains in the afternoon.

Sigh.

Although, there won’t be much plan for homeschooling, I hope I will have time to do some crafts about Christmas and reading books related to Christmas too with Yvette. I hope but so far we only set up the tree, doing reading but no craft.

*Boo*

Although Yvette is “fit” for school, but I still hear her coughing and she only coughs in the middle of the night and is affecting her sleep.This is the longest period she ever fell sick and I hope she will be stronger after this.

Ok, I have side track to much and here the lesson plan for the past 3 weeks.

Tot Learning Lesson Plan (17th Oct to 6th Nov 2010 ) – Part 1

~Yvette is 2 years 5 mths~

I find 3 weeks is a good time line for all the activities I have planned and I am going to stick to it.

I think I over plan this round but then sometimes I just couldn’t stop. I seem to have many energy and I am able to self-motivate. And luckily  Yvette is always my supporter. She has so far (finger cross) never find our learning boring. However, I know she is not very keen in reading as compare to all the activities we did at home. This is the area I put in a lot of more effort and I hardly record here. (Perhaps I have a little high expectation on getting Yvette to read.)

I feel having a structure lesson plan is important to me at least because I can identify Yvette’s strength and weakness on learning. I know she is relatively good in learning numbers as well as maths (surprise), shapes, colours, concept, logic, fact (memory) but rather slow in learning words. Getting her to read is always a challenge but I know she is making great progress as we learn together.

A good teacher will be able to teach and inspire the student and I am trying to be one to Yvette.
