Shichida Week 9

Today we tried to make a bracelet by stringing beads in class! It was not an easy feat as Samantha thought the beads were candy and was trying to eat them all the time.

They also changed the flashcards, sentences for daily life, Sawako, Shichida musical and speed reading book. The animal flashcards that was flashed on TV are now read in Italian – I wonder how much benefit a few seconds of Italian, once every week, over 4 weeks will be of benefit to the babies – I certainly don’t think they will be able to pick up anything at all!

Other things we did in class:

  • Attempt to use a pair of chopsticks and spoon to eat ‘fishball noodles’ – clearly too early for any child
  • Count the number of flowers, butterflies and birds in a picture of a garden
  • Feed pictures of a yellow, blue and red monster foods that have the same colour as them
  • Sort out fruits from food

On the whole today’s class was more interesting than last week’s, but the babies were equally agitated and screaming most of the time..

  1. Hi. So how long have you now gone for the lessons? What’s your assessment? Did you really find a 6 month old had or gained an attention span to learn from the lessons? I am really interested because at 6 months, my baby was only able to sit and slither…I can’t imagine how a 6 month old would be able to LEARN from a class.
    🙂

    Thanks!

    • Hi Shab, apologies for taking almost a year to reply to your message! It got lost in a mountain of email.
      Well, I can assure you that babies learn all the time. From the time they are in the mother’s womb.
      So certainly a 6 month old will be able to learn.
      The question is, whether the class is pitched at the right level for the 6 month old or not?

      • Hi! Yes, no worries and thanks for replying. But my question still remains, in a class of different levels and ages, wasn’t a 6 mo distracted and distracting for the rest of the class? On Feb 16, 2016 19:58, “doctoring.parenting” wrote:
