21 Aug N is for Nose
When we had N for our letter of the week, my little trooper was sick. But that didn’t prevent him from being active! He didn’t want to just lie down and rest so we still went on with his activities to keep him preoccupied. 🙂 He had to nebulize multiple times a day. To cheer him up, I told him that N is for Nebulize! Haha! That made him giggle. 🙂 Here’s how our week went:
Books and the Bible
Mr. Nosey and Mr. Noisy are just some of the Mr. Men books that Timmy loves. 🙂 The Nemo book is actually his introduction to the character. We haven’t watched the movie Finding Nemo yet. He still can’t stay put for 1.5 hours. He would rather play, read, or do something else than watch an entire movie. Maybe when he’s older. 🙂 The Nemo book, by the way, is part of the Fish in a Box set that contains books about Dory, Finn, and Gill.
The Napping House is one of our favorites. We make different snoring sounds which makes this book really fun to read! Noah and the Ark is a rhyming reading level book. Timmy has two versions of The Nose Book. One is the board book and the other one is part of his collection of Bright and Early Beginner Books About Me. Timmy enjoys reading Ay Naku! all the time mainly because of its colorful illustrations. 🙂
For our Bible character, we learned about Nehemiah and how God granted him favor in everything he did. We also watched a couple of videos about him. 🙂 Nehemiah’s story encouraged me to always commit to the Lord everything I do. Sometimes I get so preoccupied with my to-do things for the day that I tend to forget to ask help from God. It’s amazing how being a homeschool mom has taught me a lot of things! 🙂
For writing, Timmy placed Numbers on the N template. He really liked this activity because he loves numbers and stickers! It also kept him busy a little bit longer than usual. 🙂
Here you will see my little boy nebulizing. He still wanted to practice writing N so I gave him his big flashcards. Doing activities while nebulizing distracts him from the discomfort of the mask. It eventually became a good idea for him to do something during his sessions. 🙂
We also did his favorite reading-writing activity. I’m so glad that this exercise hasn’t lost its novelty yet! 🙂 He checked his own work and wrote “very good.” Haha!
I asked Timmy to draw different Noses. 🙂 He was more creative and free flowing when we just did it using pencil and plain bond paper. When I gave him faces with googly eyes and red mouth he became more careful in drawing! 🙂 I think he got conscious because the people looked better. Haha!
We continued with our skip counting and here he was doing it by 5’s. He didn’t complain doing this exercise because he always looks forward to our skip counting practices. I think my son is slowly becoming an expert in multi-tasking like nebulizing while doing some math drills. 🙂
We did a counting exercise using Nuts. Timmy always ended up eating the nuts after he counted them. 🙂 I helped him eat, too! Haha! 🙂 What a very distracting activity! Heehee! 🙂
N is for Notes so we did another counting activity that week and used his colorful pegs. He clipped the clothespins to the correct number of notes. 🙂
It was a tough week for us because our little boy was sick but we praise and thank God that he got better eventually and he never lost his energy. 🙂 During times like these, I’m so grateful that we’re homeschooling. I don’t need to worry about absences and make-up exams. We can rest for as long as we want. And if my son is in the mood to learn despite being sick, I can indulge him and try to make learning fun and comfortable for him. 🙂 Watch for our C week on my next blog! Ciao! 🙂
