Today, Jae (5y4m) and El (3y3m) helped to prepare their snacks: wholemeal cheese sticks. The recipe is from Right from the Start written by my good friend, Daisy Ng. It happened that I bought too many packs of frozen Kawan parathas by mistake, and have almost all the ingredients on hand, so this recipe was […]
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 7.5yo Vee, ~5yo Jae & ~3yo El)

During the second week of Lunar New Year (LNY), I brought 5yo Jae to visit the Thean Hou Temple in Kuala Lumpur (KL) with my friends. Many Chinese visit Thean Hou Temple during the LNY period to pray for blessings. Though we aren’t a religious family, I took this chance to expose Jae to the […]
Since Lunar New Year (LNY) is on 28 Jan this year, we find ourselves busy preparing again. The good thing about homeschooling preschool is that I get a longer stretch of time at home by cutting off traveling time. And the young kids get to watch how I get the house ready and learn too. It’s […]
During the final 2 weeks of the school holidays, we were busy visiting Singapore and Taipei, Taiwan. We love getting Taiwan-made educational toys at attractive prices. Today’s post shall introduce you to Gigo Junior Engineer and Story Line series… The children have been enjoying their 3 boxes of Junior Engineer toys for several years. We’ve got […]
We’ve been kept busy during the first two weeks of the year-end school holidays. Here are some school holiday activities ideas: 1. Robotics * 7y9m Vee loves robotics. We stopped his school robotics activity after one term because he became too tired to complete his homework and had insufficient time for free play. In replacement, […]
This post is on easy and fun activities to teach a young child to read Chinese characters. There’s a free flashcards download at the end too, so read on… Over the past two weeks, the family has fallen in love with this Chinese nursery rhyme — 老鹰捉小鸡 (translated as “the eagle catches the chick”). It’s catchy, related […]
Today’s post is on how I motivated my introverted child to participate in a group performance. My #2 Jae (5yo) is an introvert. In his 4 months in kindergarten, he rarely spoke. Over 1.5 years of weekly music classes, he rarely interacted with other children. Yet at home, he can be talkative and loud at […]
#2 Jae is my first baby with whom I started doing right brain home practice while pregnant. Actually, I was doing home practice with Vee while Jae-the-foetus listened in. After he was born, I diligently showed him simple black / white / red flashcards. After 1-2 months, I started flashing cards at high speed […]
General Presentation Jae wanted to fold an origami fan, so I weaved in a lesson on fractions while doing so: Fold in halves (2 rectangles). Point and say, “This is one half. This is one half. Two halves make one whole.” Fold again to make 4 squares. Point and say, “This is one-fourth. This is […]
It’s Deepavali weekend, so we went on a road trip to Kuala Selangor to stock up on fresh fishes. Our last visit was 2+ years back when El was a baby. This time round, he could join in the fun too. We love going on road trips in Malaysia, where the children (and us) can learn […]
