I was so excited to receive Farmer Falgu Goes on a Trip for the kids! It’s our first time to own a multicultural fiction book and knowing my kids who are very interested about different cultures, they will surely enjoy this! Oh boy, and they did! Most especially my preschooler who was very attentive when I was reading this to him.

Vito loves counting. He may not know yet how to count from 1 to 100 but he knows how to integrate math and numbers in daily life. He mastered his 1:1 correspondence early on and now he’s learning how to count beyond ten. I was surprised the first time I heard him counting from 11 and up. I didn’t introduced that to him yet but he already knows. It’s like self taught, but I was thinking that he might have learned it from his brother. And because he might be in a sensitive period on number now, I decided to give him a few exercises to recognize and name numbers from 11 to 20, and understanding what those numbers represent in quantity.

Hello everyone! I wanted to share with you Vito’s current favourite printable, our Beginning Letter Phonics Cards. You might have seen these in some of my letter-themed post. These are card strips which contain letters and their corresponding objects (real images matching the beginning letter sound). The product comes in two sets: control cards and the activity cards. Below is a glimpse of how we use the materials, which Vito would work on every day (sensitive period for letters)!

May of my blog followers are requesting for these and I’m so happy to finally get to share it with you!! You can now download a copy of our land, water and air sorting mats which Vito and I would use in sorting different animal figures (Safari Toobs and Schleich) whether they thrive in land, water or in the sky.

In line with our Days of Creation activities, the boys and I talked about how the universe came to be. Mavi used his Usborne Fact Cards once again to review concepts and this made Vito get into the mood of exploring the planets as well.

This holy week, Mavi decided to revisit ancient Egypt after rereading the story of Ten Commandments. We dug up our Egypt Picture Book materials so he can work on some readings and do some activities to go along with it. In this post, I will share the contents of our Egypt Picture Book learning pack which you might want to try. It contains: reading materials, activity pages, picture cards and outline cards for coloring.
