Rocks and Minerals

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

The summer break gave us an opportunity to explore sciences that Mavi loved to learn but couldn’t because of school.  After our trip to the Wicklow Mountains last month, he’s been asking  if we could learn about rocks and minerals.  He plays Minecraft so he wanted to understand the building blocks he’s using.  I started making the materials last month and it was just a few weeks ago that I finished the entire set and we were able to use it together with our rock collections!

Activity Trays for 33 Month Old Toddlers

Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Hello everyone! We only have two more weeks before school opens so I decided to postpone Vito’s Fruits and Art Unit for the rest of the month so I can spend quality time with the boys and not think about activity preparations.  With this I’m sharing Vito’s activity trays which he started working on early this month. Vito only spends about 20 minutes for our “themed units” and the rest, he would either do free play or work on these trays.  These would entertain him while I do house chores, sometimes I supervise especially if we use glass bottles.

Water Cycle Learning Pack

Monday, August 15, 2016

We finally concluded our Water Cycle Unit (for Mavi) and he had a blast! It was timely because it rained for the past few days so we spent most of our days outdoors, observing the nature for the process of water cycle.  Now I’m sharing here the materials used and activities that we did for extension.

FREE Printables for Alphabet Learning Sheets

Sunday, August 14, 2016

Hi everyone! I’m often asked in my Instagram account on where I get our printed learning materials for learning letters (letter recognition and pre-writing) so I’m going to share with you the links of my sources here as it’s difficult to do that in IG.

After our watercress activity, I introduced Vito to the life cycle of a green bean plant using Safari Ltd and the cards from The Wise Owl Shop. Showing Vito how plants grow, check out some of the activities that we worked on during the past few days.
