7yo Vee has 3-4 spelling “tests” covering 3 languages every week. He’s attending a Chinese school in Malaysia. I usually try to make the revision sessions quick, fun and effective. I’ve covered some ideas in my Intermediate workshops. Today I added a new idea, inspired by Montessori’s Pink Secrets: copy the words onto (recycled) slips […]
You are your child’s first and best teacher
Welcome to Mummy’s Homeschool! If you believe that you’re your child’s first and best teacher, then you’re at the right place. We’re a family based in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia (often shuttling to my Singapore home), and are taking the homeschooling route to about 5 years old.
We embrace early right brain education based on Prof Shichida’s teachings — built on a foundation of strong emotional connection between parent(s) and the child, to facilitate learning and development.
We also love the Montessori Method, the crux of which is to observe the child and prepare the environment to allow him to learn independently.
By harnessing the amazing abilities of the human brain, we aim to raise children who have BIG dreams to build a sustainable and better world.
Cheers, MieVee (Mummy to 6.5yo Vee, 4yo Jae & 2yo El)

One of the reasons I like homeschooling is the amount of time, space and freedom the child gets to solve his own problem creatively. Being given a problem to solve (often happening in traditional schools) is different from facing your own problem and trying to overcome it. The sense of ownership and motivation are much […]
We left for a family vacation to Bangkok, all excited to explore the city. On the first day, 7yo Vee complained on earache and headache while we were at Chatuchak market. He was one huge grumpy fellow. In the evening, we discovered he’d a high fever and immediately stocked up on a thermometer, masks and […]
Yippee, it’s the school holidays! The older kids have been learning to pack their own travelling stuff. Last year, Vee forgot to pack his underwear for an entire trip. Good natural consequence — now he remembers it every. single. time. So for the upcoming trip, I just had to tell the older boys how many […]
Hubby made a day trip to Singapore and returned with a small box of 3D puzzle for Jae (4y4m). We got round to fixing it, amidst little El who was a handful. There were 80 pieces. We started with the single digits, so Jae had to fish for them, with a bit of my help. […]
El (2y4m) wanted to work with playdough today, so we did some right brain math at the same time. We’ve a small mould that makes spiders. He wanted to use that. I rolled the dough into small balls while he printed them. As he completes a new one, I’d point to the total number of […]
While the older kids are at school, little El (2y4m) finally gets some one-to-one special time with Mummy. Here’s what he’s been up to: – morning sand play: finally brought this out after a long time – pouring water while mummy’s baking – cutting with scissors: he’s doing this almost every day Initially he held […]
Practice, practice, practice… This is what I remind my kids to do if they wish to get better at something. It’s about developing grit. Kids learn best from our actions (instead of words only), so I’ve been showing them through… Baking muffins! For the past 2 months, I’ve been baking healthy kids’ muffins nearly every […]
4+yo Jae is learning about musical notes, so I adapted this idea from Vee’s previous teacher. A4 card stock: cut into 8 pieces each write note on each card, using thick rounded-tip black marker pen (you may use red too) make 2 or 4 of each note so that you can play games (clap / […]
My kids love stickers and maps, so this sticker atlas is an excellent fit for them. Covers world flags, animals, space and dinosaurs. With encyclopedic info as well. Got it some time back. Can’t remember which bookstore though. Pls refer to the ISBN in the last photo. Happy weekend! ~ MieVee MummysHomeschool.com P.S. Check out […]
