大樂高超級市場

從孩子們兩歲開始,我固定每週一天安排【大樂高課】,至今已經維持了將近六年的時間,孩子們歡樂的學習,是我最希望也是一直在努力的目標。

(原始文章寫於2012)

每一個小朋友都太一樣,我家姊姊對於圖片的接受度很高,所以在自學課程中,我大多以圖片導入;而妹妹則是偏向聽覺學習的孩子,所以相對的我給的口述指令也就比較多了。

今天我們使用的的是這一套Lego Duplo的超級市場*6137。
( 可以在這邊購買 )

我喜歡引導小朋友思考,這樣會增加她們對平常身邊人、事、物的觀察力,
所以針對這套Duplo,我準備了一些照片和童書來搭配,而這些照片都來自Google搜尋呢!

當初選擇配合這套大樂高的是這本很經典童書,很可愛很爆笑,內容是在講每個媽咪的噩夢,每個孩子的范特希,非常好玩的一本書。

PS: 有些人覺得這本書教壞小孩子,我反倒覺得可以機會教育呢!
這本書年紀很大了,不太好找,大家可以考慮Amazon上買二手的。

2016年更新:
我們近期最喜歡的一本Supermarket書叫做:At the Supermarket
( 可以在這邊購買 )
便宜又可愛的一本小書,內容簡單明瞭,認識各種名稱,非常有趣。 15 more words

Spit Out the Rest

Re-examine all you have been told

At school or church or in any book,

Dismiss what insults your soul,

And your very flesh shall be a great poem.

Top 10 Kindergarten Books

This academic year my kindergartner read 100 books! My goal was 75, then we added in some cool reading programs like “Six Flags Read to Succeed” that required you to log specific hours of reading in exchange for free tickets and we made our way to 94 before casually adding another 6 to round it off. 25 more words
