~ he likes to hold the pencil this way ~
CE can count till 30 and recognise the numbers. However he's a bit confused with 20 something. If I write 25, sometimes he'll say fifteen. But when I tell him it's wrong, he knows it's twenty-five.
When I taught him to spell his own name, he was also interested to know the spelling of all our names. Within 3 days, he can spell his own name, jie jie's name and K-A-K-A-K. He knows mine and PaPa's name but can't remember the spelling coz it's confusing for him (got almost similar spelling).
Drawing & Colouring
He doesn't know how to write yet. He can draw a little, mainly circles - balloons, monsters (face with 2 dots as eyes and a long line as mouth) and mickey mouse (3 circles). He refuses to hold the pencil the correct way. I keep teaching him to grip it correctly but he prefers to grab it (with all 5 fingers). So his colouring end up as a big patch of colour, way out of the lines. I'm not worried or anything. I guess he's a bit slow in this aspect. I'll let him take his own sweet time. He'll eventually learn to write and colour when he enters kindy next year.
~ his messy work. The "O" is nice? That's coz I coloured it :D ~
