The color of feelings

One day last week, after we came home from KD’s school, we were as usual lazing around to rest a while before taking our lunch.

I can’t remember exactly what happened but KD was so mischievous again that i shouted at him and said “I am so angry now!”

To my surprise, he asked me back “Mommy, what color is angry? ”

And then he went to his school bag and took out the folder of the week’s work to show me…

He began by pointing onto each heart and asked me if I know what color it is and what it means… Before I could answer, he answered his questions himself too. Haha. Beige orange is for Happy, Blue is for Sad and Red is for angry! He said that I was red color just now!

It’s really amazing what kids learn in school these days…

Another memory recorded for my reminiscent in my old days…

Kyle’s 2nd Show & Tell

Hee, this was Kyle’s 2nd Show and Tell in his school in the same week. We were told  to bring two photographs to school for him to tell his classmates about his family and an activity that we were doing together.

And so, I went to developed the two two photographs and passed to his teachers without doing any preparation with him at all. 🙂

His teacher wrote me a note on how Kyle did and I must say i am quite proud of Kyle’s for being able to speak up and express himself.

In fact, he must be very proud of his family too for after he bring home the above photographs from school, he treasured them so much that he wouldn’t let me keep them.

He keeps them into his backpack and brings them everywhere!

Parent child homework: Kyle’s first show and tell

image

Last week, Kyle came home with this parent & child’s work folder and I am supposed to guide Kyle on what he can do and actually there is really many things he can do himself! The activities that he will be most interested to show off will probably be how to play Temple Run II on the iPad or how to dance and sing to various languages of Gungnam Style. Bleah.. :p

After many careful conversations and consideration, I took out his paint brushes and ask him to select a picture of his favorite fruit (which at this point of his life happened to be Strawberries, was banana, papaya and apples previously).

image

So, I asked him to select the colours and paint the picture himself. 🙂

On Wednesday, when i picked him up from his school, his teacher told me that he was able to speak in front of his classmates though he was really soft.

Anyway, I am a proud mama cos it’s Kyle’s first show and tell and i think it’s fantastic job he did!

Fun with Tots Series @ Public Library

 

Yesterday while at the library, we chanced across this brochure below and i feel it’s too interesting that i must share!

Fun with Tots Series @ Public Library. Apparently, it’s available in many libraries. It’s a total of 6 fun filled sessions to engage a parent and child in helping us to introduce our little ones to 6 early literacy skills! Every session is only limited to 20 pairs only. And is recommended for toddlers aged 1 to 3 years old. It only costs SGD2 per session for a pair of parent and child. A token will be given if you registered for all 6 sessions.. but Alas!! I saw this too late and there is only the last session available for the library near to our home… 😦 .

If you are interested, please do go to this link quickly to check and register if there are any available in a library near by your home. 🙂

 

Let’s read books!

I brought Kyle to the library after his class today. 🙂

Instead of borrowing books, today we sat down and I read to him right there! Am amazed he managed to sit through 3 books today! Usually I can’t even finished one before he ran away. 

The three interesting books we read today are

This great house hunt has alot of pictures and no paragraphs of words but is like a comic strip.  So instead of me telling Kyle the story, he told it to me instead through his eyes!

I am enjoying this kinda life while I can cos when number two arrives, I really dunno how I can bring Kyle to the library any more!

It’s E Day!

As usual, KD selected his favorite way for drawing, that is painting!

We painted an elephant baby blue and he also learnt a new word called eggplant!

He really enjoys painting!

Not too bad for a 3 year old right, at least he loves and enjoy painting! So I tried giving him a piece of blank paper and ask him to draw freehand. He doesn’t have a single idea what he would like to draw, so I asked what about a playground?

20121204-142201.jpg

He is really lost and not sure what to do next

And then he ran away!! Haha! He doesn’t have an idea of what to draw next and is lazy to think! So no choice, i wouldn’t want to stop just like that… so I had to coo him back with questions such as “Look! Is this a sun? Is this a slide? Is this a see saw etc..” With only four colours, we created this art work. But of cos!! With much help from me!!! He is not that impressive! Haha.

Let’s not be too judgemental, 🙂 what matters is he enjoys and I enjoyed too. It’s our artwork! 😀
