- Lots of colouring
- Math: Colouring the corresponding number of objects and repeated writing of numbers 1-8 at this point. It’s amazing that while Caitlin handled writing number 8 quite well, her number 2 is still problematic.
- English: Colouring the corresponding object which first letter is the repeated writing one.
- Mandarin: Colouring the corresponding object to which the Chinese calligraphy refers and repeated writing of that word; earlier in the year practise just the strokes that make up a calligraphy word. We are up to writing number 4 now; she already knows how to say 1 – 10
Of course with all these new “words”, she also needs to remember how to read / say / pronounce it.
On top of that, she does still come home with the sporadic artworks, usually done in school.
She also has books with 3-4 sentences per page, aimed at letting the kids recognise the words…..
These days, from the back child seat, she does already exclaim whatever she can read off the billboards she spots.
“Daddee! That’s a ‘six’ and a ‘zero’!”
