Book Splurge: 18 May 2011 @ Bookdepository.com

July 9, 2011 Leave a comment

So, I bought some more books, with no shelves to spare..ha..ha..went out for boxes today and came back with none, dreamy me was so focused on not losing the kids :-p

So the list, bought on 6th June, and some have not yet arrived, it’s 9thJuly,  oh well..they’ve been coming in slow streams, not all in one go, and I haven’t checked the stamp to see if the problem was on this end, i.e. the immigration or postal service.

I’m just putting a: ? – can’t remember, / – received, x -not yet received, next to each of them for my reference.

A lot of the Magic Tree House books and one of the Montessori Handbooks I received this week (11-15th July). So only the Elementary Science Education is due, I think The Rainforest has been put away somewhere half read.

Update: Ok, as of 31st of July, received all, except maybe the last in the list, have to check up on that.

Helping your child choose the right book

May 27, 2011 Leave a comment

Stumbled upon this from:
http://thewellreadmuslim.blogspot.com/2011/04/how-parents-can-help-children-choose.html

The ‘Five Finger’ method:

1. Open the book to any page.
2. Start reading.
3. Whenever you come to a word you don’t know, hold up 1 finger.
4. When you finish reading the page, look at your hand and count how many fingers you are holding up.

If you are holding up:

0-1 Fingers the book is too easy
2 -3 Fingers, the book is just right
4-5 Fingers, the book is most likely too hard; choose another

Draw Write Nowbook

March 26, 2011 Leave a comment

i’ve been to this site countless times since M was a young ‘un:
http://www.drawyourworld.com/Catalog/HTML/drawwritenow.html

my thoughts on the draw write now set:
“i remember now i didn’t get them because i didn’t really agree with the step by step instructions on how to draw, eg. http://www.drawyourworld.com/bird.html. I think one should learn to draw by ones own means, by being observant bla..bla..”

okay..i guess the set is pricey too.. 🙂
