I am terribly sorry for being so quiet on both Facebook and the blog lately. I really didn't mean to but it has been a bit busier and more stressful around here this Spring and this has left me with little free time to post anything. Unfortunately, I do not expect things to be back to "normal" until much later this month either (possibly the beginning of June even). I do miss blogging though and will most definitely be back once most everything is settled. Until then, I thought I'd share some of the educational fun we've been having during our Asia unit. Kind of a wordless post with just a few activities.
|Art - Japanese Lantern|
Not all letters look the same from language to language and as Adrian is part Korean, I thought it'd be nice for him to learn how to write a few words in the language. It's good culturally and it's a good exercise for dexterity as well. Here's to "Thursday".
|Language - Reading "fortunes" from "Fortune Cookies"|
I try to include language activities as much as possible for Adrian and try to make reading fun. He loves digging for things in playdough so I decided to make the much stereotyped fortune cookies for him to break open and read. I know we'd never find these treats in Asia and explained to Adrian where to look for them...aka in Chinese restaurants in the U.S. :)
|Art : Painting with Tea Bags|
Tea being from China, here was my chance to offer a very sensorial activity: painting with tea bags. The children loved the smell and so did I...it almost convinced me of trying tea again! :) We used a fruit tea sampler and a green tea bag as well.
