One activity that Mavi and I did during our fossil study was to examine the different types of preservation of organisms. We discovered that there are actually 5 major types of fossils and I’m sharing how Mavi worked to demonstrate it.

Investigating the Past Life with Safari Toob Fossils

Friday, June 17, 2016

We love our Safari Toob!  I think every ‘Mom’schooler should have at least a set or two of these toobs.  They are fabulous learning materials and my kids love them! 

Anyway, Mavi is officially joining Vito’s weekly themed activities as he’s almost done with school. He misses “Mom” school and urged me to let him join with the activities.  So while Vito is all about play and learn, I’m giving Mavi some serious investigative work like research, more readings and selective hands-on activities.

Exploring Colors with DIY Light Table and Stencils

Thursday, June 16, 2016

Vito is 31 months old.

We’re having simple activities for our Light and Shadow Unit.  Since it’s been raining most of the time, we’re doing much of the activities indoors (much to my dismay).  So probably, creating shadows under the sun has to wait, and shadows using torch will also have to wait since our sunset here is 10PM.  We might redo this activity in September or October, when night time comes early so we can play with our torch and make shadows.

Inspiring Kids To Do Research

Wednesday, June 8, 2016

As you all know, we’re having Dinosaur-themed activities this week. This curriculum is basically for Vito but most of the time, Mavi wants to take part in it as well, especially when the topic is interesting to him.  And since Mavi loves dinosaurs, I gave him some tasks last Monday (holiday in Ireland).

Fun Dinosaur Color Sorting with Homemade Playdough Recipe

Monday, June 6, 2016

How cute is this? Vito is currently obsessed with colour sorting and playdoughs so I used these to my advantage.  I made playdoughs of rainbow colours and used it in our colour sorting activity with our Learning Resources Dinosaur Counters and they turned out so festive and Vito played with them non-stop!

Creativity with Shape Mags (Stick N Stack)

Friday, June 3, 2016

Vito is 30 months old.

I bought this amazing product when we went to the US last month.  We have Magnatiles and we love it, but the problem is we can’t really make something more out of those squares and triangles. When I came across Stick N Stack in Amazon and read good reviews, I just needed to buy those beautiful window tiles and carts!   And if you ask me, yes they work really well with Magnatiles!

And since we’re having Transportation Unit, I made Vito create his own cart.  Oh boy, he played with it for hours!!  I asked Mavi to assist his little brother for awhile but later on left when he realized that Vito doesn’t want him for a playmate.
