A blog about multilingual and multicultural family homeschooling their two children in Taiwan, Poland and Japan. (Third "child" grew up, and after starting her own company decided to go to school in NYC.)
Blog wielojęzycznej i wielokulturowej rodziny uczącej dwójkę dzieci w domu na Tajwanie, w Polsce i w Japonii. (Trzecie dziecię dorosło i po założeniu firmy w Japonii wyjechało na studia do Nowego Jorku.)
Jaś had Polish, Chinese and English today. In English for the past few days he's been doing crossword puzzles.
For the first time he didn't want me to
spell the words to him, but he wanted to look them up in the dictionary. Good job!
He also had math - multiplication and division. I don't make him memorize the time tables, but
let him think and come out with the answers in his own time and way. Jaś
sometimes uses the division board to check his answers. And that's what he has done today.
Zosia didn't do as much as Jaś ...
She worked mainly on biology.
Read chapters on skeleton and joints from "The Complete Book of Human
Body" and wrote some worksheets from Sonlight.
in the afternoon she had her last media class. Unfortunately she didn't
like these classes very much, I guess they didn't turn out what she
thought they would be.
Outside it's raining and temperature dropped to 20C. In Taiwan there is a
very short window of time that we don't need to turn on neither AC nor
heater. And the time is now! It's the most pleasant time of the year (of course when it's not raining).
Not much is happening - just teaching and learning :-) In the morning we read "Earthquakes" and discussed how we can prepare
for them. After the March 11th disaster in Japan the subject of
earthquakes is being brought up quite often in our house. Taiwan is one
of those places that shakes and rattles almost all the time.
the afternoon we had visitors - Taiwanese cable news station, GTV 八大,
came to interview Tim and film a news spot on homeschooling.
