Dot to dot activity for my preschooler

Our homeschooling went a little better when my preschooler finally have an activity that suits him. He just loves doing dot to dot art for a week now. What I need to do before he start the activity is to form shapes, letters and numbers using circles on an easel pad.

Pointing America

As I was teaching my 5 year old some Geography, I also taught my preschooler a little bit of it too. My 3 year old’s age is fun to teach because he always initiates that he wants to do it. He got to know that this ball model of Earth is a globe and the large flat picture of map is a world map.

All Saints Day Hat

A week ago, we celebrated All Saints day according to our liturgical calendar. We went to a noon Holy Mass at church and we stayed to pray inside the church for a little bit and tour the kids on the Baptismal area of the church where they preserved the old, religious stained glass windows. It was nice to see the kids curious and recognized the images in the stained glass.

Color Fun For Tot

My 2 year old is very observant on what his 4 year old brother do in homeschooling. There are times, even for a few seconds that I’m away from Little G, Little V grabs the crayons and color his brother’s work. It gets messy sometimes and so I make 2 photocopies of each coloring pages that Little G is going to do.

I’m surprised though that at a young age, Little V is very interested in doing coloring art. At least it’s not very messy and you can identity objects in the picture. This picture is what he colored lately.… Continue reading

Ninth Week In Homeschooling

Next week is our ninth week in homechooling. Time flies so quickly, indeed. We are required to submit a quarterly report to the school where my son is enrolled with and they will send us the report card. I like this idea so that we will know the progress of our 4 year old by quarter in Kindergarten. I am getting busy for sure because I have to process his papers at the end of next week.
