Be gracious to me, O Lord.

Be gracious to me, O Lord.

  Lord, hear my prayer and my cry for mercy in these days of troubles.  I am listening to the hymn Psalm 86. This hymn has been playing again and again the last few days especially we were reading it in our prayer meeting last...

Simple video game (non digital version)

Simple video game (non digital version)

因每個星期日,小朋友們都要和大人一起坐一起崇拜,聽牧師講道成兩小時. 你會想,2.5歲既小朋友同5歲既小朋友又如何坐定定呢? 好奈之前只有囡囡時,出街食飯都會帶Busy Bag.所以我office有好多自整"玩意". 我同先生都係從事IT呢一行,一直都想小朋友到6歲先接觸電子產品,不過現實係無咩可能. 而且,大囡從tablet學得更加多,言語,社交同埋creativity一直都係進步,沒有社會上提到既影響,而且我一直都MON住佢每日既development,有d咩影響我又點會唔知.大囡自己既self...

Chinese New Year Card Activity

Chinese New Year Card Activity

就快到農曆新年啦! 細細個發覺呢, 新年既節目係無乜啱小朋友玩,成日都係去人地屋企拜年,食飯,打機,睇電視,鋤大d, 魚蝦蟹,打麻……呢d都係賭錢的,唔係好適合小朋友玩既遊戲.係可以玩boardgame,因香港呢幾年慢慢become a trend…. 但係真係要玩d農曆有新年氣氛既真係無乜…所以我整左副同農曆新年有關既撲克牌.整呢個遊戲其實找一d我的既小朋友可以學數宇同新年既活動. 若你記得點玩蓋棉被就會知道點玩.你可收到我的店度下載. Enjoy!    It is almost Chinese New...

Fall Scavenger Hunt

Fall Scavenger Hunt

Fall is here! I have made a Fall theme learning shelf for the kids to play and learn. When I was cleaning up the shelf today, Mr 2.5 saw that I took the sensory box I made for Fall theme and he decided to play again with it. My Fall sensory box...

Allowances or Responsibility?

Allowances or Responsibility?

So when my current 4 years old was 2, we decided to start to develop her "economic" sense, so I made all these pictures and "coins" chart. You picked one of the chores and then you did it and you would earn the numbers of "coins" according to the task, then after...

Ice Cream Mixing Colors

Ice Cream Mixing Colors

我地呢個星期屋企既自家教學係學I for ice cream,好多時候一個星期4日我都會準備4個英文生字同個個星期既 Letter有關. 我雖然已經prep好 Ice cream既學習櫃比佢地,但係今年我都想專注番科學既題目因為佢地兩個都好鐘意科學. 之前暑期既時候我地油畫時, 我特意只買紅,藍,黃既acrylic paints,等大囡自然地學混色, 小朋友既好奇心係大既,等佢自由發揮去研究又可以玩一個鐘以上. 咁今似我就用雪糕呢個topic又比機會佢去重溫咩顏色既顏料加咩顏色會變咩色.都玩左成個早上....

Importance of homeschooling

Importance of homeschooling

其實自家教學重要既唔係家長有幾高的學歷,同有幾叻,教小朋友最重要既係,家長的耐性同心機. 相入面既係我前幾日準備教囡囡 H for Hat的Gross Motor (大肌的)的游戲,有時候家長唔需要用好多錢都可以教到小朋友. 我用一個唔再用的container,撕去招紙再油上Cat in the Hat的顏色帽, 加上一個紙碟就變成一頂帽. 再把豆放入氣球入面做成豆袋就完成一個大肌的遊戲.       The most important thing...

Art Lesson

Art Lesson

一直以黎,囡囡都愛創作, 聖誕節時我買了一個工具盒比佢,讓佢任何時間都去創作. 我估如果我仲係香港住的話,我相信大囡可能已經上了唔同的XX班. 我爸媽及其家人也可一早會話,做咩唔帶佢上堂....etcetc.但其實我的大囡喜歡自由,不愛單向的教學的style 特別係一個細細的城市度, 宜家叫做多左不同的公司或NGO都有offer教畫畫,但係我地兩公婆覺得咁細個,又唔係要佢咁快要master一d...

Learning Cantonese – Lesson 1

Learning Cantonese – Lesson 1

囡囡愛挑戰,每一日都挑戰我的腦袋去想一d有創意的野比佢玩或學. 我發現左我可以開始教佢廣東話,因學習語言係佢最大的挑戰及比佢的學習語言的遊戲當中,佢會比較玩得奈d. 今日我整了中文一至十的信封及雪條棒同埋一張中文數字一至十的表等佢做配對. 材料: 十個信封 (寫上1至10) 10枝雪條棒(寫上1至10) 1至10的中文表 (可按這裡download) 信封上寫上中文數字一至十,而雪條棒上寫羅馬數字1至10....

5 Minutes New Toy

5 Minutes New Toy

可以係屋企每一日睇住兩個小朋友的發展及長大係我的榮幸,也是最幸福的. 佢地每日都有驚喜比我,例如細佬上星期仲 SO的sentence structure,前日就已經SOO 或SVO. 親眼睇到及第一時間見到佢地的進步同埋改變係永遠令我覺得也許每日24/7 對住佢地,也許有辛苦的時刻都是值得的. 呢兩個小朋友,沒有那一天不challenge我的. 今日我特別地5分鐘做了個新玩具. 上星期我地仲做緊Love of God的theme,有用pipecleaner做左好多心心,除左我地用黎做...

Homeschooling; easy or not?

Homeschooling; easy or not?

有朋友問我自家教學難唔難,我唔係太答到,因為我不是一個好有經驗的自家教學的媽媽。 我的大囡係Pre K的小朋友,要教的東西其實唔需要阿爸阿媽有大學學位去教。 Pre K小朋友其實多數都應該係去玩多d,特別呢個歲數的小朋友根本無可能會坐定定及有專注力去"聽書"。 同埋如果唔係社會推出黎,咁細個真係無需要咁快去學ABC. 你會問點解我又咁早教我小朋友,因為佢好奇心超強,咁佢自己2歲未夠又自學晒,認得晒所有的顏色的名,英文字 及數字,所以佢無新的挑戰或新的東西去學佢會好悶。 係普通的Pre K課程大概分呢幾類的範圍教小朋友的: 對同錯...

Story Wheel

Story Wheel

囡囡愛講故仔比我聽.有時用一本書去讀會太傳統或太悶,我就用Story Wheel (故事輪) 去同佢一起讀故仔. 之前我地會睡之前講故仔,但每一晚也要哄細佬訓都已經好夜,而且晚上大家都累,我個人就鐘意早上讀故仔書. Story Wheel, 這個方法我地之前讀Alligator eats the seeds時已用過,而且佢這個歲數用另類方式讀佢覺得好玩之於也會容易記得個故仔. 我發覺depends你用的方式去講及選擇那一類的故仔做story...

Valentine’s 2017

Happy Valentine's Day! This year we are a family of 4! So obviously life is a little chaotic especially feeling sick isn't a fun way or in a mood to celebrate even though I was planning to make a cake. Instead me and H did the heart shape sun catchers, we did a...

Circle Time

Circle Time

自家教學終於開始了!   我們開始了一個星期,囡囡都很喜歡.她幫我們呢個上課模式改左個名叫做, "Teacher Time" (老師時間). 呢一段時間她都會叫我做老師,不會叫媽咪,很可愛的. 自家教學有一個好處就係可以在那兒都可以學習,因為有細佬的關係,而細佬只愛爬爬爬,不愛坐定定,所以我們大多數的時間係坐在梳化上上堂,而細佬又可以在地上爬或玩玩具,有時佢都會Join埋一份. 而另一個好處就是任何時間都可以上課,有時早上,有時下午. 但我們每一都會由Circle Time開始的. Circle...
