Teaching Lil Princess - Colours
Lately I've been trying to teach my lil princess COLOURS. I loved to use flashcards when I teach my kids. Personally I find them very useful and it also helps me a lot. When lil prince was young, I started introducing flashcards to him when he was eating. Lil Princess started slightly late.
I often browse through the internet to get the free printing of flashcards. I would then print them out and laminate them for my kids. If I don't laminate them, they get torn easily.
I bought these colourful balls from Daiso last month. Sorry, I'm not sure what they are called but if I'm not mistaken, they are used for handicraft. They come in different colours - red, blue, green, yellow and purple.
For this activity my intention was to have my lil princess to differentiate the colours that I've taught her. I used five colourful bowls that I got from IKEA, placed all the small balls into a container and asked her to separate them. To start off with this activity I need to teach her how it works and let her continue with the rest. I got the idea from reading one of the blogs. That's why I love to read blogs! I find that reading blogs are so informative:) and most of the time I get lots of motivation by reading other mommies blogs too.
I find this activity very interesting and it is also a test to see whether my lil princess is able to tell the different colours. Although lil princess is a bit slow in her speech, nonetheless, she is able to understand simple instructions and tries her best to follow mummy's pronounciation whenever I'm teaching her with my flashcards.
I am hoping to have more time to spend with my lil princess and giving her more practical life activities. I felt that I have been concentrating too much on my lil prince and his homework lately and left our my lil princess :(.
