We started with making Frank the frog. Luqman got dragged into the whole Frankie thing...hahaha.
Until Mr O came to the rescue. Using the glue. Much simpler.
After few days, we get the thing done. So, ladies & gentlemen. Meet Julie the okopipi.
Then we learned about recycling. And Mr O started rolling his eyes when I told him we should start recycling. I think we throw wayyyy too much rubbish everyday. He thinks recycling means u end up with piles of stuffs. And space is definitely an issue to us.
So I did a bit of googling, and found out about the DIMPA waste sorting bag from IKEA.
Today, we read The Lorax. To be honest, I have been trying to get Emily to read the book a few times. With no success. I am not a huge fan of Dr Seuss. For some reason, my kids are not hooked either. But I love The Lorax. I love the story to bits.
So today, I asked her to listen to the audiobook.
Aaahhhh....then it makes more sense to her ;-) Emily still struggles with comprehension. Although sometimes u can see her reading novels like Big Nate & Wimpy Kids, I know she's pretending to read. So I usually choose simpler books to read with her. Today's discussion was good. I could see she understand the story. At least the gist of it.
We end the lesson with some artwork. Tadaaaaaaa!! ;-)
We will do few more activities this month. Hopefully it will impact the kids to do their bit to save the earth. As cheesy as it may sound, let's green up our act. I am starting with something simpler. Reduce, reuse, recycle. We are still spring cleaning the house. It's messy. But it needs to be done.
No act is too little. Everything matters.
