Precious Development @ 3- 4 years…

A friend of mine told that her paed said “ her son development is fall under average”. This makes me wonder of our child dev elopement also. I do a little surf and find these..

Ages & Stages – 3 to 4 years

Between 3 and 4 years your child is learning to:

• Understand most of what is being said
• Speak in sentences that are longer and more complex, although some errors in sounds still occur
• Ask lots of questions starting with ‘why’, ‘what’, ‘where’, ‘who’
• Balance on one leg for a few seconds
• Ride a trike well and steer around corners
• Climb ladders, trees and outdoor play equipment
• Catch a ball with outstretched arms
• Throw a ball with aim and begin to use a bat
• Go up stairs one foot on each step
• Push and pull large toys and easily steer them around furniture
• Copy a circle and imitate a cross
• Hold a crayon with an ‘adult like grasp’
• Know the names of some colours
• Become more cooperative and being to share
• Go to the toilet by themselves, although may need some assistance and may still have accidents in the night
• Cut with scissors
• Put on a t-shirt and shorts
• Enjoy make believe play which links a number of ideas into a sequence, eg making a cake

You can help your child develop by:
• Encouraging outdoor play
• Going to different places eg park, beach, wildlife park, museum, playgroup, public swimming pool, library, shops. This will give them more experiences and help them to learn.
• Being creative in setting up play activities eg painting, music and construction
• Involving them in your everyday activities, giving them simple helping tasks that they can achieve. This will build their self-esteem
• Being interested in their questions and conversations and taking time to reply
• Showing enjoyment in their discoveries and success

Play Ideas:
• Trampoline
• Matching games
• Obstacle courses
• Swings
• Playground equipment
• Planks, low fences to walk along
• Doll house
• Sorting games
• Construction toys, building blocks
• Plastic tea sets
• Puzzles 3-4 pieces
• Tricycle
• Cooking equipment
• Music and movement games
• light bats with large balls
• sports, dancing, calisthenics / gymnastics

What is special about this age?
• Curiosity and imagination are foremost at this age. Children like to imitate life at home as they see and know it
• Their horizons are expanding as they experience life with their local community
• They enjoy group activities, learning rules and taking turns. Children at this age are growing more secure and confident
• Language is now developed enough to have a conversation, and they are asking lots of questions
• Children’s fingers and hands are now agile and they are developing greater hand skills
• They can sit happily absorbed in a task and get a great deal of pleasure out of mastering it
• They now have good bowel and bladder control, but sometimes need a reminder to go to the toilet.

Just for you
Take time to be with your adult friends. Listening to
‘child speak’ all day makes adult conversations
more important than they have ever been before.

Harraz & Puasa

It’s amaze me on how a little ones can understand fasting..thanks to “upin & ipin” jugak..I think Harraz catch it from there..My sis in law bought a VCD “upin & ipin” for Harraz & brought by my hubby friend to KSA..usually we watch on U-tube. He know what is fasting simpke concept..(not eating) & we have to wait until dawn (Maghrib)..

I love to see Harraz busy, either watching tv, playing games or cars..and most of the time..following me.. I think live in an apartment with lots of divider aka dinding makes him wonder where’s mommy at all times…

@ Ramadhan I try to blow my kithen serajin yg mungkin..hehe…and my Harraz keep me busy at all times coz he will explore everything as mommy did jugak..I made curry puff, he did also..I made lamb grill..he join the club, I made choc cake, he…ate the choc first..

..:: Al Khobar ::..

So geography lesson...wakaka....dah lama tak mengajar...silap haribulan skill out..Al Khobar, Arab Saudi...boleh Google n u can see it situated just beside Bahrain. but to get there(Bahrain)we have to use causeway (bridge)..tu kira lain negara..aka dok kat padag kota nmpak Bagan..n dok kat Tambak Johor nampak komen on Bahrain sebab x penah g sana lagi..multiple visa x buat lagi...:)

Al Khobar

1. Mana2 tempat kat sini mesti ada masjid...even kat ceruk2 bila time solat leh g la masjid yang terdekat..(depan umah je)..masjid die takde gate pun..ternganga jek...setakat ni 1 masjid je yang yaya jumpa ada dalam pagar...lain sume xde.

2. Area expertrade. So sometimes we find it a bit expensive..

3. Corniche - tepi diaorg leh joging n ada playground. So bolehlah Harraz nak main n ayah die nak joging..mama die???

4. Makan - senang bagi diaorang. Roti & nasi..tapi bukan nasi campur..dah tentu briyani..huhuhu....tgh malam pun mkn khabsa (briyani) lagi..kedainya pun macam 24 jam..tetp waktu solat jek...if u r inside masa solat takpe..diaorg just close yg kat luar klu nak masuk..kene tunggu die bukak pas solat around 1/2 hour.

5. Ladies Street - Kat sini lebij=h kepada pakaian "abaya", emas, karpet...n gaun2 yang kembang & berwarna-warni...slalu pk bilalah diaorng ni pki..but diaorg ni ada parti laki x leh masuk.bolehlah diaorg pki macam2 pesen.

6. Ladies Centre- xpernah masuk lagi..but orang kata tempat pompuan gunting rambut, nail n for LADIES ONLY...wonder jgk..pekerja die laki ke pompuan??

7. Mall - sini x banyak slalu pegi Al Rashid Mall je.tu yang paling dekat ngan umah jugak..5 minit je naik kete...

8.. nant sambung...mind lost kejap....

:: Little House On The Praire ::

Aqrabiyah House


@ 1st I find it quit small but with just 3 of us….it suit actually..with a small living room, a big room with huge bed and it especially the make up table…beso giler..2 bathroom..of course a bathtub. Buat harraz berendam hari-hari & kasi mama die terjerit2…the kitchen was perfectly organize.a microwave, rice cooker,washing mashine?? ( diaorg dah piker kat situ paling bagus kot).stove…huby buy a blender.Pan & macam-macam la..macam rumah baru ..memanglah yang asas ada tapi yang kecik2 pun nak kene beli gak…ex: can opener..

Harraz & toys ….

2 bulan jugak stay kat situ.Harraz siap beli turtle.Nak beli ikan, tapi mamanya takut nanti mati padahal malas nak tukar airnya..klu turtle kecik je…senang menganiaya je kalau tak mampu nak jaga tapi nak bela..huhuhu…Toys..jangan cite la..ape yang takde…basikal lagi rasanya..coz tu je yg payah sikit sebab dok apartment & siang or petang stil panas lagi so camne nak main..mamanya pun dehydrated la (alasan..heheh)
25/7/09 – totally out from Aqrabiyah & moving inn to Ar Reem ( kalau tak salah la.coz tak jumpa lagi kat notice board ejaan die camne).

Ar Reem House

An apartment house.Complete kitchen,2 bedrooms,2 toilets, living hall bigger than before,hallway that become my display cabinet yang tak tau nak letak apa n study desk..the kitchen a bit smaller then the aqrabiah house & the masterbedroom also.But we have a room for Harraz.Okla klu die nak menyepah…

I still not bake anything yet n looking forward to ing..Next month Harraz will turn 3 so it’s probably good if I can make a cake for him..just to show an appreciation & how much I love him..Went to Carrefour.but nothing much there on the baking row..nak cari tepung lain selain tepung gandum susah tul..last2 we all g kedai indon..sip baik nak cr bakery stuff under one roof still x jumpa lagi..bantai je la apa yg ada…Later on when I start make something I will post it…

Oklah..time to clear up the messes….
