Love the outing Jasmine had, and the matching cards to learn about the moon phases. Hope you had a good rest and are feeling better now, Jas! ❤️

ACTIVITY 💡: Moon Walk
It’s Friday! It’s been a long week for myself personally as I had a health scare and needed to slow down, but I’m thankful that the weekend is finally here.
🎏 We first started reading 余广达’s 妈姐的金鱼灯笼, and I found myself tearing at the last page. A beautiful story illustrating the story of the 妈姐 ma jie, a group of women who came from to China to work as domestic help in Singapore between the 1930s to 1970s.
🌔 We also explored moon phases in Mandarin, using our 中秋节 pop up book as reference. The kids really enjoy the interactive elements of each part of the book, a must-have for learning about this festival.
🏮 The older boys were tasked to design their own lanterns using what we had at home, deciding that lanterns need to
✔️ be translucent or transparent so that light can pass through, and
✔️ have a handle so that it can be held.
I love what they came up with, even though they aren’t the prettiest of lanterns 🤣 they executed each part of the design and creation all on their own - I only recommended a needle to help drill small holes for the pipe cleaners to go through.
🌃 We then went out for a night walk at Zhongshan Park and @sysnmh this lovely evening - a great start to the weekend!
🌔 Remember to look out in the sky to observe the beautiful waxing gibbous moon 上凸月 😉
