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..
