[Homeschool] Long weekend fun

by mievee @ mummyshomeschool.com on April 5, 2016

Yesterday was Ching Ming Festival school holiday, which meant another long and meaningful weekend with the kids.

  • explained the meaning of the festival
  • brought 7yo Vee to watch a piano-and-strings concert for the first time. Richard Clayderman delivered a fabulous performance and has inspired Vee to keep practising.
  • completed Vee’s origami cat bookmark project
  • showed him how to thread a needle and sew simple stitches. I explained that this would be a useful skill when he goes overseas to study someday. “What if your button falls out?”
  • completed the model of Singapore Changi Airport using BRIXIES nano blocks (240 pieces). Our first attempt with nano blocks. Good training for eyesight, fine motor skills and patience.

Of course, we conquered the homework load, read (books and flashcards), swam and the kids played freely a lot too.

Little El made me read 11 books to him at one sitting before bedtime last night! Thank goodness for speed reading.

Overall, we had a fantastic family time.

Have a great day!
