Goals for the Mama – 2/21

Goal 1: Confidence/ Character Building
– Learned to roll up a big sheet of paper
– Learned to wind up the kite string
– Helped me put the wet laundry in the dryer
– Helped to clean up a pee accident so that ‘mama will have less work to do and won’t be too tired’

Goal 2: Chinese
– Read 巴巴爸爸和圣诞礼物,巴巴爸爸搬大树,巴巴爸爸回地球x2, 1只小猪100只狼, 落叶跳舞,吃掉黑暗的怪兽,
– Watched 巧虎
– Downloaded new chinese songs to add to his quiet time music.

Goal 3: Math
– Counting random stuff in books e.g how many arms does the alien have, how many truffula trees are left?
– Comparing snowflakes to see which one is the same and which one different

Goal 4: Reading
– Learning to spell the ‘a’ words with an app called Spellyfish. He’s surprisingly good with it
– Read simple words in familiar books like his baby books that enjoyed a renewed interest recently
– Read the title ‘The Lazy Bear’, at least I think he read it. I don’t remember telling him the name of the book. I’m starting to wonder if he can read better than I imagine, but I don’t want to stress him out by testing him or forcing him to read aloud to me. He does sometimes look through his books during quiet time so if he can read some of them to himself, more power to him. We’d still continue to read to him anyway even though it can be tiring. After he has exhausted papa with a couple of books, he’d say “How about you, mama?”

Goal 5: Fine motor skills
– Cut out lots of car pictures from the magazines. Look at the fine collection below. I’m impressed that he can cut very close to the shape of the pictures that he is cutting out, even though he left a big pile of little magazine scraps all over the carpet.

– Cut out animals for our snow lapbook about animals that hibernate
