Some time ago I came across a really nice floor puzzle - Alphabet Train Puzzle.
Ania liked the puzzle right from the start, but beacause she was not familiar with the order of the letters in the alphabet it was taking her a lot of time to complete it and sometimes she would loose interest half way through. After she has learned most of the letters it became much easier for Ania to put all the pieces together.
After a while I added "an extention" to this simple put-the-puzzle-together game. Ania was suppose to match the letter cards to the letters on the train.
The puzzle not only helped Ania in learning the order of the letters in the alphabet, but it also helped her to learn the names of the animals on the puzzle.
As you can see it's not that difficult to turn a simple game (or in this case a puzzle) into a teaching material. :-)
Jakiś czas temu zaproponowałam Zosi by zrobiła kilka krótkich filmików o tym jak się kroi lub je różne egzotyczne owoce.
Na Tajwanie mamy okazję rozkoszować się przepysznymi i w miarę tanimi owocami, o których w Polsce niewiele ludzi słyszało lub je próbowało.
Pierwszy filmik jest o ... zwykłym mango. Czy wiesz jak je kroić? Czy wiesz, że są różne rodzaje mango?
Czy wiesz, że mango jest pełne witaminy C?
Smacznego i ... na zdrowie!
Kolejne owocowe video będzie o ... japońskich bananach.
Zosia loves trying new things. She would probably go diving with sharks, jump with a parachute and go bungee jumping from a bridge if there was someone to take her to do all those things. Her Parents and brother are not that adventurous so there is no chance of her ever going with us to experience the thrills of living on edge.
But ... there is Perry!
He will show her how to do crazy things in a safe way.
Thank you Perry.
For those who are interested - this place is was in 新北市, it got closed due to safety issues. New venue (hopefully safer and with A/C) will open soon in Taipei close to 雙連.
Summer is coming to an end.
In just one week we will be celebrating Mid-Autumn Festival 中秋節.
Our community swimming pool is going to close very soon.
To remember the good times we've had at the pool Zosia has made a really cool video - please take a look:
