I decided to share a series of short posts about the first steps in homeschooling a 3-year-old.
It is a third child of this age that I will be teaching at home and by now I have most of the materials already prepared. This makes a big difference as I don't have to spend much time searching, printing, writing, cutting and laminating many of the materials I need to use, I just take them out of the storage, find a place on a shelf and voila! the material is ready.
First Practical Life exercise I want to show you is
- two identical bowls
- fine uncooked pasta
Remember to tell your child that he is not supposed to eat the 'work'! Ania kept repeating to herself：麵還沒有煮好 - pasta is not cooked.
|Carrying the work to the table is not an easy task |
(as you will see later).
|Tilting the bowl a bit to get all the pasta into the spoon...|
|... or simply pouring the last bits of pasta from one bowl to the other.|
|Oh-oh! The tray tipped over and ... all the pasta spilled on the floor. |
Now it's time to clean it all up.
