We did the challenge number 2 slightly modified. We didn't go for a walk but stayed at home and chose three different spots outside the house where we'd listen to sounds. We started off in the back yard where we heard a fly, some music and the sounds of a car and a motorbike. From Luana's window we could hear the river and a car. In the front yard we heard a man talking, a bird singing and again some cars and motorbikes.
The kids were really calm and concentrated (except for Lucas who lost his interest towards the end). This was something different and new and it went down really well. Afterwards we wrote down the sounds we'd heard and the kids drew some of the things. I then cut them up and glued them on the notebook page. Luana drew a car (on the right) and a motorbike (on the left). I think that's the cutes motorbike I've ever seen. As soon as they start making that model I'll get one for myself! :)
I think we'll do another challenge this week in order to catch up a little. We still haven't finished working on the river theme so there's something for this week, too.
We worked a little on colours in English, too. Luana has lerned "pink" at school (they have 30 mins of English once a week just for fun) and today she remembered "yellow" and "blue" as well. I printed them a rainbow colouring sheet from British Council's site. They have tons of things for teaching English and I'll go back with more time to explore the site.
