Monkey is 3 years 7 months old
This week, Monkey had a busy week in her homeschooling room. She’s really loving her time in there, and sometimes I have to just call it a day after 4+ hours even though she’s still wanting to work (I only do that for things we really need to do…like pick Jedi up from school or hit an appointment). Quite a change from the kid who only wanted to work 15 minutes at a time a few weeks ago!
I have a lot of picftures, so I’m going to just get straight to the weekly summary, and then add a sneak preview of the Tet Trung Thu (Mid-Autumn Festival) work that Monkey will be doing this week. It’s only about 1/3rd of the lessons for Tet Trung Thu, but it at least gives a little sneak peak before I post the summary next Monday.
Monkey sorting "clean" vs "polluted" for her ecology work
Using an eye dropper to mix colored water
Planting flower seeds. First she filled the pot with dirt, then poked a little hole, put the seed in, covered it up, and then added a little water.
Scrubbing a baby. She had to pour the water into the tub, get the baby's clothes off, wet the washcloth, put soap on the washcloth, scrub the baby, rinse the baby, dry the baby, and then put the baby's clothes back on
Using a paper punch to punch holes in a strip of paper
Using one of the sets of visual discrimination cards. She had to match pairs based on one changed facial feature on each card
In the kitchen! Monkey, Bug, & Jedi making cookies
And a sneak peak at this current week:
Pouring sand with a Sake set, and using a Vietnamese soup spoon to transfer glass pepples
Pouring water with a tea set
Using chopsticks to transfer harvest items from one basket to another
Cutting lines to make paper lanterns (this is one of 2 different types of lanterns she'll be making this week. She's also going to make lanterns to light later in the week)
Making Vietnamese Tet Trung Thu basket masks
Getting ready to make moon cakes
