Activity 1: Writing 'About Myself'
Activity 2: My Body - Labeling the different body parts
With a piece of Mahjong Paper, I drew a little girl and we started labeling the different body parts.
The main objective of this activity is word recognition.
Identifying the body parts was easy for her, but I wanted her to recognize the words like "this", "is" and all the words of the different body parts.
Activity 3: 我的身体 - Labeling in Mandarin
Faith learnt her body parts in mandarin through this book. Some of the flashcards are from this book.
She can now read this simple mandarin book.
Faith learnt the different body parts in mandarin as well and she had to identify the body parts in mandarin and paste the flash card as close to the body part as possible.
我， 的， 脸， 眼睛， 耳朵， 鼻子， 口， 嘴巴， 下巴， 手， 脚， 眉毛。
To attract her to the wall, I pasted her photograph of her.
Activity 4: Learning about my Skeleton
Bought this really useful learning aid many years ago during a 'toys r us' sale. This learning aid have help me teach all my 3 children and now, it's the youngest girl's turn to use to it.
Firstly, Faith had to "fix the puzzle" of this skeleton. As she is building, I'll teach her the different names of the bones. Of course, I use the 'human skeleton' poster which is included in the kit to input the different names.
Faith discovered that she can see these x-ray films better against light.
We also learnt about '10 Good Food for Your Bones' (included in the kit). Took this chance to teach her about a healthy diet too.
Activity 5: Labeling important parts of the skeleton
Seriously, how important is it to know all the names of the different bones of our skeleton? Funny that it's not important at all. So I decided to only reinforce the important parts of the skeleton using this paste and colour activity.
Activity 6: Reading The Story of Creation from 'My First Bible Stories'.
Faith suddenly asked me one day, " Mummy, where did I come from?"
Instead of answering her question, I told her " Let's read this book and find out where did you come from."
It is a simple 3 page story.
After reading this story, I asked her "So where did you come from?"
Without any hesitation, she answered " from God".
I was surprised at the way she answered my question with great confidence.
I asked her again" How did you know?"
She said : " Because God made man and woman and all the animals."
Activity 6: Introducing the Internal Organs
Through this guided, simple paste and label activity, Faith got introduced to the different internal organs, how they look like and where they are roughly positioned in our body.
This book, 'I am' is a simple book to teach verbs.
Activity 9: Making our own book, "I Can"
After reading the book 'I am', I suddenly had this inspiration to make a book "I can". I ask Faith to complete the sentence "I Can....". After she came up with 15 sentence, I wrote the sentences into a book and I search of photographs of her and we made the book "I Can"..
Faith enthusiastically pasting her own photos onto the book.
Presenting our product - "I Can". I took some construction paper and stapled them together and we got our book.
