It's been about a month Josh started going to his playschool, which is quite phonics class oriented. I was shocked that he has known about 90% of the phonics letter sound. I only realized when I wrote his name J.O.S.H, and he managed to recognize O, S, and H and pronounce them together with the phonics sound. So I tested him from A to Z, he basically managed all except that G and J sounds like alike and E and I sounds alike too, and there's no response from him when I asked Z says ...
It's amazing to know how spongy toddlers' brains are. They absorb all that is thought, fast, and almost 100% of it. So, once again, I am reminded to spend more time with this little fella despite of the busy schedule I am in the midst of managing both Just Health and the boutique.
Yesterday when I got back from work, he was still napping. When he woke, he was already asking me if he can do water-coloring. But I told him, we're gonna do 'crayon-coloring' today and we're gonna make 'dragon'. He has got no idea what dragon is. He kept calling it 'dragonfly' and 'dinosaur' cos these are something he knows.
I printed the 'dragon' template that I downloaded from here. This was also something I saw from mommy Bear Lim's instagram and facebook.
- A3 paper for printing, you can also print on harder paper
- Red paper for the dragon body, I used two angpao
- Lollipop sticks
- Glue or doublesided tape
- 'Eyes' for the dragon (optional)
- Print out the dragon template. The head and tail is double sided, so that the dragon looks ok on both sides.
- I let Josh color the dragon head, tail and feet using crayons. Of course, I helped him out.
- Then I folded the angpao while he's still coloring. When the coloring completes, I cut out the dragon head, tail and feet.
- I let him stick on the double-sided tape and tear it off to adhere them together.
