With Vito’s current obsession on letters, I’m focusing on letter recognition, phonics and writing from hereon. Our activities in March are mostly revisiting past activities and doing a lot of extensions. Check the details below to know more about it:

Vito is 39 months old.
There is nothing more precious in this world than seeing your kids work together peacefully LOL. During the midterm break, I prepared some activities which both of them can participate in. It’s not just about the academics, but my main purpose is for them to learn how to work together as a team and bond as brothers. So aside from learning about flowers, the boys also explored the animals of the world using our Animals Continent Activity Sheets. Mavi was so ecstatic to this with Vito as he loves animals (he said he’s an expert) and geography.

This midterm break (for Mavi), I’m trying to setup activities that both of the boys (3 and 8 years old) can participate in. One of which is learning about flowers and what they are made of. Now, even though Mavi has done this a lot of times already (when he was 4, when he was 6) , he’s still eager to do this activity with his little brother. This is something new for me though, doing the activity with two boys, making sure that it is engaging to the little one, but at the same time able to relay information to my 8 years old. Anyway, you can skim through the post to see how I made the boys work together in the activities I prepared for them.

Are you observing St. Patrick’s Day? We do! It’s usually one of the most colorful time in Ireland, where everyone is just so happy and festive. Anyway, with all the green and rainbow decors around, I’m preparing Montessori working trays for Vito as we approach the celebration of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Mavi will be doing a lot of work for St. Patrick’s in his school so I spared him from this. My aim here is to introduce Vito to the symbols of the celebration and he’ll be exploring these in our activities.
