Can I say that we are going back to school? We don't really stop learning during vacation or holidays so there is no ... break from so called school. But still ... with summer over we started using our desks more than during vacation.
This year I am trying to do as much
preparations in advance as possible. I've planned all the subjects for
both kids for the next half a year. Of course it doesn't mean that this
plan is not going to change, we are very flexible and if something
interesting comes up or if the kids would be interested in something
else than what I have prepared then let it be. Follow the child (most of
the time at least).
Zosia is still interested in science - physics,
chemistry and she still likes math a lot, so we will be doing a lot of
these this year.
Can't really figure out what Jaś likes. His
interests change all the time, from math to history, to building with
Lego or drawing. I never know what he will want to do, how he will want
to learn or which projects he would like to work on.
I hope that this
semester although we are not joining the nature class, we will find
time to go out and explore Taipei and surrounding mountains or even
take a trip down south. We'll see...
So far kids signed up for dance (Zosia both Saturday and Sunday and Jaś Saturday only) and art classes. Jaś is
also continuing piano lessons. Zosia is still going ice-skating and is thinking of joining a photography class.
