Summer Home Study (again)

Summer break has started since last Friday for LeRuof!

It’s Mommy-time again. He’s stuck with me from the time his little brother goes to school at 9am until 2pm when friends who go to Korean schools start to come home.

And, (un)fortunately for him, I believe that learning is not limited to the four walls of the classroom, we have started a daily schedule of study-time again. He has too much time in his hands to be watching television and videos… and, nah, he wouldn’t want me to be nagging him all the time:-).

But, I think I have tickled his interest this time. My tool?

my secret tool to keep my 7-year old glued to our study time. As they say, “if you can’t beat them, join them”.

Today, we talked about musical instruments and orchestra. And since I’m no musician, my best tool is the i-pad! and you tube! Oh, you tube! it’s a one-stop shop for everything you want to know and see (sorry google).

And the best orchestra performance to show how the different musical instruments work together is Peter and the Wolf by Serge Prokofiev. Just watch this and you’ll see:

My son enjoyed it. And I did, too!

Shhhh… he also watched the trailer of Gladiators after we read about the Roman Empire.

Huh, whoever did say learning is boring?
