This week’s activity is a lot of fun for kids because it’s kind of like magic. (Ok, not really. But it’s still a really cool effect.)

ACTIVITY OF THE WEEK

We’ll be having your child “write” a character using washi tape and then coloring over the tape with crayons, pencils, or paints. When they remove the tape, the character will still be there! MAGIC!

HOW TO MAKE 準備

Once again, the activity is the making so you don’t have to create anything in particular for your child other than providing the materials.

HOW TO PLAY 玩法
  1. Have your child “write” a character using washi tape. If your child is too young to remember how to write it by themself, you can either provide cards from which they can copy, or write the character very lightly on the page and have them tape over it. (Remember, the whole point of the activity is so that when your child lifts the tape, it’s blank under the tape. So make sure you write so lightly that it can be easily erased.)

  2. Once the character is taped down, have your child color over tape and surrounding paper. Let them color or draw whatever they want.

  3. When your child is done with coloring, help them carefully lift off the washi tape.

  4. If your child wants to add some additional flair, they can outline the edges of the blank character or color that part in, too.

ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO PLAY 玩法變化

If you want to try different art mediums, you can use canvas or different types of paints (eg: puffy paints, glitter glue). You can even tape glass, spray some alcohol on the glass, and then drip paints and swirl the paint around. When the paint dries and sets, remove the tape and set the glass against a white paper background.

我們希望能看到你的孩子做這些遊戲的照片或影片,也希望能聽到你的意見或提問。更歡迎加入我們的【講媽 ⦁ 講爸】Facebook 群組,我們等你喔~

HOMESCHOOLING TIPS

專家建議設立一個睡前的規律步驟,會有助孩子安然入睡。同樣地你也可以透過設定規律來讓孩子進入學習狀態。

為每天定一個固定的時間,你和孩子會一起在那個時間溫習和學習思展圖書。可以是晚上入浴之後睡覺前;要是他要抱着心愛的布偶或玩具,沒有關係。也可以是一早起來,吃早餐的時候。甚至是你與他一起等哥哥姐姐下課的那段時間也可以。

不管你設定的是怎樣的一種時間表,有了規律大家就都會記得時間到了就要一起讀思展圖書了。即使有一天你無法按時間表執行,你心中也會有件事:啊,今天沒有讀思展圖書呢。

這樣,和孩子一起讀書就成為每天自然的規律了。

Just like experts recommend a bedtime routine to signal and prepare your children for sleep, you can use routines to signal and prepare your children to learn.

Choose a set time and place for you and your child to read and review Sagebooks together. Perhaps it’s right after bath time and before they go to sleep. Do they have a preferred stuffed animal or toy they can hold? Or do you prefer to do Sagebooks first thing in the morning at breakfast? Perhaps when you’re waiting for another child to finish a class or activity?

Whatever it is, setting these routines helps you remember to do Sagebooks because the time or activity is the cue for your reading. If you don’t end up doing the routine, you might find that you forget to read Sagebooks because it is so ingrained in your minds!
