Yining's Instant 'Chair'

Conveniently seated on my shoes using my legs as back rest when she got tired running around. :)

Yining's Impeccable Logic...Again

Father and daughter had an interesting conversation. 

I was grumbling to her that if she didn't fall sick often, we would have more money for her to buy toys. 

Her reply was : 你去赚多一点钱啦!

So I told her I wouldn't have time if I always have to bring her to see doctor. 

And her reply : 这样你晚上才去啦!

Think she's going to sell me to somewhere as foreign labour soon. 

Yining's Xmas / Birthday / CNY Wardrobe

This is overdue. Yining's festive wardrobe. Got these for her before Xmas to last all the way to CNY!

Yining's Wardrobe!

Hurray For Yining!

I have always advocated creative and independent learning for Yining. For eg. I taught her phonics and when we read books, I always ask her try to use phonics to pronounce the words instead of just reading it to her. Of course those are simple words. Afterall, she's only 4. 

As a result Yining's able to recognize quite a number of words despite not remebering the full spelling. Anyway the whole objective is to get her to think rather than to just spoon-feed her with information. 

So today we had an interesting session. She asked to search for "rainbow nursery rhymes" in YouTube. I guided her to spell rainbow with phonics and offered to key in the next 2 words for her. Guess what she did? She went to her bookshelf and got her Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes to refer to the next 2 words. Claps for Yining!
