This summer we have been very busy with a lot of activities including crafts and sports! For the letter O, we did a few summer activities while we were in Singapore!
This is an Origami Ladybird step by step video tutorial. Origami is such a simple and fun craft! I have loved it since when I was very young. I used to fold thousands of paper cranes hoping my wish could come true and it did. But how true are these wishes – they are just a wish, you have to work hard for your wish than simply thinking folding thousands of paper cranes (wishes) will help your dreams come true.
I’ve always loved Ladybird books since young. They have so many classic stories and I recall I owned a series of hardback books with a ladybird on the side. Now Ladybird have turned some classic tales into ebooks. Ebooks have become increasingly popular nowadays as you have the potential to bring your whole library of books along on your travels. I personally have so many different ebooks for children on my iPad already. So what makes Ladybird so unique?
I first heard about phonics through my son attending preschool. It get me wondering whether I really have to learn this. I come from Singapore and we did not use phonics during my school time. That was at least 20 over years ago. At that time, I had absolutely no clue what phonics was.
