The Solar System

To make use of The Solar System book I bought for years, I started reading to him last week. The same book every night, and he really enjoyed it.

Then I thought of activities (because of reminder to self: create more fun learning) for Solar System, and then mind mapping came into my mind. I'm not exactly a person for mind mapping, but for his age and his interest, I guess drawing it out will be the best.

While I read, I described, he put it in illustration.

We also went through the way to remember "My Very Energetic Mother Just Serves Us Noodles". We learnt not just the Solar System, but spelling/phonics too!

Very serious at work

He said he wants to display and show his Serangoon friends
that his mommy taught him Solar System.

I also let him watch YouTube on Solar System, and I guess he really benefited from it.

Last night he went "Jupiter is made of gas". I couldn't remember.

Then he started singing "I am a giant gas" in the manner of the YouTube song.

The dad randomly uttered a question "how many moon does Jupiter has?" IZ answered 60 (that's according to the book anyway). Looks like Jupiter now has at least 63 moons. How ah?

Edited on 16th Sep'15:

He captioned "I'm cold"
as it can be very hot in Mercury, and it can be very cold too

He captioned "mmm nice" on Earth
the only planet with living things

He captioned "why I have so many volcanoes on myself"
for Venus who has many crates

Parents Teacher Meeting: 31st Aug'15

Feedback from Ms. Fizah:

  1. IZ can draw really well for his age. Robots that he draw are very detailed.
  2. IZ can do his work independently.
  3. IZ shows empathy by asking a peer's parent on the allergies. He told the parent that he wanted to share his cake.
  4. They are learning time now, IZ's favorite subject so he has no problem.
  5. IZ did well for his show and tell. He asked his friends to wait till he finished before asking him questions. He was also very excited to share the photobook with his friends. Looks like Melbourne was the best trip ever for him. Each trip is?
  6. The only concern is about his speech. Ms Fizah asked if we are still going for speech therapy. I guess I've slacked a little these days. Time to buck up!

Feedback from Li Laoshi:

  1. IZ is a happy, active and sunny little boy.
  2. He participates actively in class activities and dares to speak up. 
  3. He is able to complete his homework as per teacher’s request. 
  4. After class he is able to help his friends.
  5. IZ is very helpful not just to friends, but to teacher too.

    Pray that he continue to enjoy his lernen-reise.
