(Taken 2008, printed for Working Mom Magazine’s monthly contest for the theme: Me and My teacher)
When hubby hasn’t introduced the PSP as a common gadget at home, my kids played with educational toys such as this one; wooden cubes with numbers, letters and pictures of things that the kids would identify. Big sister loves playing teacher to little boy. I’m not against PSP or any other game console, I play once in a while too, particularly that of Nintendo DS games like Sudoku, mdas for kids and other mind-challenging games. I just like traditional toys because it’s not so stressful to the eyes. 🙂
(Learning colors in five languages with the help of Lego blocks.)
I strongly believe kids can learn up to five languages, considering that their mind is not as congested as ours (adults). 🙂 I’m seizing the moment to teach them slowly, starting with the basics…e.g. numbers, animals, colors and so on. In this particular photo, it is with the help of their favorite Lego blocks. Sample? Red, pula, rot, rojo, aka….that’s English, Tagalog, German, Spanish and Japanese….the order of which is our fluency.
(For the theme: Lights, Camera, Pose!)
Up to this day I am still a stagemom though I have not been active in submitting my kids’ photos to contests as much as I used too. I still carry my camera as much as I can and take photos of them…This photo of my daughter is the latest I submitted for a chance to be featured in a billboard. I received a confirmation from the organizers (NIDO) and I was told that this will appear sometime in August 28-29….oh that’s tomorrow at SM North Edsa…the boys’ photos will appear there too!
So in case you want your kid’s photo seen in a billboard, check out this page.
