Homeschooling Playgroup #4

We started on our new theme of Fruits and Vegetables this week, and although the children know many different types of fruits and vegetables, there’s still plenty of learning to be done.

I bought some puzzles from Popular last week, so I requested to be in charge of the Introduction this week. I got the children to work on the three puzzles, and talked briefly about the three green vegetables.

The Puzzles

I deliberately chose the green vegetables for my introduction, because I wanted to read the book, I Do Not Eat the Colour Green! (I’ll do a proper review on the book in one of my Friday Flips posts soon.)

Mummy C created this wonderful puzzle/matching activity for their craft, after I told her about the book I would be reading. I love that all the vegetables she included were green, and we also learnt the Chinese names of the vegetables through this activity.

Mummy E read a Chinese book about different vegetables, and as usual, Noah refused to sit down during this segment. I had to put him in time-out for a while, before he agreed to sit down with the rest of his friends.

Two of the mums prepared the Practical Life stations, and there were so many new and interesting additions. Mummy C suggested that for future sessions, we could all chip in to prepare one or two stations, so that it would not be so taxing on the mum in charge of Practical Life. Also, we should have the same stations for a month, so that the children can better hone their skills.

The children were really hungry after all these activities, and couldn’t wait to eat their snacks. They said Grace very quickly, so that they could eat the biscuits and grapes. Mummy T prepared some really yummy spring rolls for the mums, and we had a good time munching on them.

We totally forgot to sing the action songs and the Goodbye song, because we were all tired out from the long day, and the children were already busy playing after their snack. Oops. Noah refused to leave, as he wanted to play with the toy train, so Mummy T very kindly lent it to him for the week. I hope that Noah will get used to this routine soon, and stop being so cranky. I know that he’s probably tired, but I do think these sessions are beneficial (to me as well), so hopefully, things will get better soon.
