ter ter ter T!

I asked mei mei, what does the letter Tt stands for? Below are the answers:
1. turtle 
–>”I would love to have it as pet but I can’t bring it for a walk…”
2. toy
–> “I NEED more princess toys!”
3. truck
–> “Gor gor has many trucks.”
4. telephone
–> “Everyone is using mobile phone now….”
5. tiger
–> screamed in excitement:”Mummy, can I have a baby tiger as a pet?” Definitely…..nope from me!
6. tooth, teeth, toothbrush, teethbrush
–> Oops! And I corrected her “toothbrushes” not “teethbrush”

Is fun when you have a review session with your child on what they know about the letters. Having them recall which word starts with it can be so interesting and also the best time to asses what they really understand or remember and what they don’t.

Now that we have talk and discussed about Mr T or Miss T. More revisions coming up with activities of course. We started off with do-a-dot but this time round, we are not using the marker. Instead, we used pincer with buttons and poms poms. letterT1

We proceeded on with worksheets where she can practiced more on her writing skills.

Once that was done, she worked on some puzzles and reading. Not forgetting sounding off the letter T before reading the whole word.

This is the best part. She loves this activity the most! That’s T for Teeth/Tooth. I did a little story telling about the teeth and a little science lesson on how tooth decay occurs. A very good chance to teach mei mei about taking care of her teeth too!  I made markings on the teeth to indicate tooth decay and she has to brush away all that to show me the clean teeth.

See how happy she was with her clean teeth!

Next, we had a craft session. Remember she mentioned about keeping a tiger as a pet. Well, she can have a pet paper plate tiger with teeth of course.

That was how her completed craft tiger looked like.

She’s addicted to brushing now. Helping her pet tiger to brush its teeth.

A week of ter…ter…terrific fun with letter T. We hope you have a terrific week too! Do stay tuned for our next letter of the week.

– train hand-eye coordination and control
– self regulation of attention and behaviour
– train fine motor skills
– train phonemic awareness

I am a busy mummy of 2 wonderful kids. Their thirst for learning has made me busy researching and making learning resources/materials for them. Most of the time will be according to the topics that they have requested. Otherwise, I will randomly pick a topic and create the materials for them. Most of the time, the materials will include right brain training as well. From them, I get to learn a lot too! However, material preparation is quite a challenge! It will even be more challenging if you are a working parent! Here, I would love to share what we have done and hope busy parents out there will find our materials useful for their little one. If you have any queries/comments or if you have any topics that you would like to cover with your little one(s), do drop me a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can :) Our mission is to find, discover and reveal the fun of kids learning! Drop us a message if you are interested in any of our materials. Let's make learning fun!

  1. Wow you home-learning moms are so awesome! I do zero worksheets with the kids because I’m too lazy! I am really not very creative with home-learning in the first place. haha
