Monkey is 3 years 9 months old
This week, we took a few days off to rest, enjoy the remaining days of early fall, and get some new work ready to go. Towards the end of the week however, we were back in full swing! This week, I added quite a few new Thanksgiving and Autumn themed work to transition us away from Halloeween and into the holiday season. Monkey has also really really shown a strong interest in learning to write, so we are starting the sandpaper letters and and a few activities to bring her more to writing actual letters than shapes (she seems to be getting bored of tracing insets because what she really wants to do is write words. However, she’s not really at the point of sounding out words at all…)
Another big addition for the week…today is Monkey’s first day of Vietnamese language lessons! Since she was born in Vietnam, she is still showing a huge interest in Vietnamese culture–food, music, activities, and language. We found a local college student who is from Hanoi who will be tutoring Monkey starting today!
Here are some pictures from this week’s lessons:
