numbers, oceans and music

Tot School

Noarai 4.5 and Lucia almost 3 years old

Me encantan los materiales montessori y a las niñas también, pero para ahorrar un poco de dinero, he hecho yo este puzzle de los oceanos. Con cartulina y papel de forrar. No es muy exacto pero, al menos los pueden manipular y ubicarlos en el mapa.
I love montessori materials and the girls enjoy them too. But for saving some money I made up this oceans puzzle with cardboard and contact paper. Its's not really exact but they can manipulate them and find them in the map.
 Here you have a video of noarai working with it:

Lucia trabajo sus números con muchas actividades pero sólo hice foto de esta. Tenia que escribir tantos círculos como el número decía. Le encantó.
Lucia working on her numbers. We did a lot of activities but I only have this picture. She had to make as many circles as the number says. She loved it.

 
A Noarai le encantan las fichas así  que hicimos esta de contar de 10 a 20. Esta teniendo un poco de problema en escribir en la dirección correcta el 2, 3 y 5 así que lo vamos a trabajar la semana que viene.
Noarai loves this worksheets so she count and write her numbers from 10 to 20. Well she is having trouble to write 2, 3, 5 all the wrong way but we are working on it.
She count 100 crackers and then we made this video of her counting by 10's

Lucia ha vuelto a disfrutar tocando del xilofon con esta simple canción que he hecho para ella. Y como no Noarai también se ha querido unir a la diversión.
Lucia had fun again playing the xylophone with this simple song I made for her:
spoon, spoon, fork,
spoon, spoon, fork
And of course Noarai joined the fun.




El pasado mes uno de nuestros bebes se rompió la pierna y las niñas vinieron conmigo al hospital y aprendieron todo el proceso: exploración- rayos x y escayola. Les encanta jugar a que se han roto la pierna y reproducir todo el proceso. En la foto podeis ver como Lucia esta preparando la escayola para Noarai.
Last month one of our babies broken his leg and the girls came with me to Hospital and learnt all the proccess: check up- xray- plaster. They love to play pretending they broken their leg and reacting it all. In the picture you can see Lucia preparing a plaster for a broken Leg of Noarai.


Los bebés estan muy grandes, pero, creo que se merecen un post aparte:) Aquí los teneis jugando en el parque del jardín mientras mamá tiende.
The babies are so big, but I think I have to start making a post only for them. Here you can see them playing in the garden while I put the clothes on the line.
Las nenas disfrutando del areno y del agua mientras mamá tiende:)
Here you can see the girls having fun in the sandpit with water while I put clothes in the line:)
Aquí teneis uno de los bebés andando por todo el jardín agarrándose de todo lo que encuentra y por supuesto nuestro pato:)
Here you can see one of the babies walking all over the garden holding himself everywhere and of course our duck:)

I love homeschooling because they can enjoy daddy's and mommy's bed.

Daddy's time friday



If I have to resume all the things daddy do with the girls they wouldn't fit in these post. But I will share some pics I was able to made.

Daddy is teaching the girls to pray. Lately they've been playing and laughing while praying so daddy is teaching the girls to concentrate and enjoy praying.



Daddy is so funny and this was the way he carried the girls from the bathroom to her bedroom. Every day the girls have something new with him:)


The boys love his daddy, they would stop everything to speak to him. Even breastfeeding has to wait when daddy is around.

Thanks daddy for this special time, thanks for your hard work, thanks for educating our children and thanks for making this family so special and funny.

baby- eye hand coordination game

This video has two games. First one it's to follow an object with the eyes and the second one it's to hold the object. As all the games for babiesb the amount of time it's a minute, if you see any sign of tiredness like one of the babies in the video yawning or fussiness, it's time to stop and have a nap. Our objective it's stimulate not hyperstimulate our babies.
Follow an object: The first thing it's to get the attention of the baby in the object, then we move the object very slowly right and left, up and down. The firt time you do this game use a short degree of rotation and little by little you can extend it. They are lots of investigations made that babies are prone to look before black and white colors and geometric shapes this is why we use this object for the babies.
Hold the object: The first thing it's to get the attention, place the object in front of and next to his face. If the baby holds the object o tries to hold it praise him, and expect it to do it very slowly and without precision. If the baby doesn't make any sign of trying to hold it, touch his hand with the object and place it back in front of him several times. We hope you enjoy the video as we do:)




Este video tiene dos juegos. El primero es seguir un objeto con los ojos y el segundo coger un objeto. Como todos los juegos de bebes la duración será de un minuto, si se observa algún signo de cansancio como uno de los bebes en el video o de lloro, es momento de parar y acostarlos. Nuestro objetivo es estimular y no sobreestimular al bebé. Seguir un objeto: Lo primero es captar la atención del bebé sobre el objeto, despues movemos es objeto muy despacio de derecha a izquierda y de arriba a abajo. La primera vez que se realiza este juego realizarán una rotación pequeña pero poco a poco la extenderán. Se han realizado muchos estudios que demuestran como los bebés prefieren los colores blanco y negro y las figuras geométricas es por ello que utilizamos este objeto para los bebés. Coger un objeto: Lo primero es captar la atención del niño sobre el objeto, colocar el objeto enfrente y cerca de su cara. Si el bebé lo coge o hace el esfuerzo de cogerlo alabarlo y esperar que lo haga muy despacio y con poca precisión. Si el bebé no realiza ningún signo de cogerlo toca su mano y vuelve a colocar el objeto delante de el varias veces. Espero que os guste el video como nos gusta a nosotros.

Letter F, North America, Caterpillars, Green...

Tot School
Noarai is 42 months and Lucia is 24 months old

In geography we were working on North America. We had fun pretending to be the statue of Liberty.
In letters we worked on F finding different objects starting with F all over the house.


We introduced the concept of Medium  to Lucia and we had fun comparing our feet (shoes) and painting our feet trace.


We made frog feet stamping and our F for feathers craft, and Noarai wrote her name all by herself:)



We had fun singing the "Harry, Harry, drive the firetruck". I made in foam (a firehouse, a firetruck, the ladder and the hose) Lucia loved it. And of course we acted the song with our hats and stearing wheel.


We plant our beans with wet cotton and we had fun everyday tracking the changes.


We had lots of fun playing, feeding and cleaning the box of our caterpillar. We learned about constancy on feeding everyday our caterpillars because we forgot it for two days and some of the caterpillars died, the following days Noarai reminded me each day to feed them. They also learned about butterflies and we compared the differences between our caterpillars and the butterfly we had. It was challenging to hold the caterpillar and to pass them to her sister so it was challenging fine motor work as well.

Green bath painting. They loved this activity, they are asking to paint everyweek in the bathtub. I used shaving cream with food colorant, it's perfect for cleaning and for sensible skins.

Lucia it's reviewing her numbers from 1-5 and we played the "water game" they jumped from number to number and if they fall down I sprinkle some water on them. They loved to be sprinkled.
Learning to trace number one and number two.
Preparing our poster of North America. We worked on some of the different races we find there: afroamerican, native american, mexican, american.

We painted our outline of North America and glued: the golden bridge, the white house and the statue of Liberty (we worked them the weeks before) and the different races as well.

I used contact paper for preserving the map and for stucking it to the wall. Every morning we sing our song of North America and we point to everything on the map (I will make a video for the next week)

For music day I introduced The letter G with Gorilla. We made the Gorilla dance in front of the mirror, we played our song with the instruments, and on the xilophone and we finished writting our music sheet of the song. Noarai is getting pretty good at reading music sheets:) I hope to share more of this music work soon.

And this last photo was taken by Noarai of her grandmother "yaya Juli" I'm amazed at how good she's getting at taking pictures.
