Thanks for your comments Raquel and Undraa. I tried adding in an activity to our routine yesterday - just a Spanish colouring book after our reading. I'm thinking of adding one page of an activity each day assuming that all reading has been completed and we have time. I don't think I want to go over 30 mins with the total amount as he's only 5.5. I've written a new blog post about my aim to establish a homework routine too. I'll also be asking for suggestions in another part of the forum on what type of activities/tasks to use. Thanks!

I tried to incorporate an additional activity on top of reading today for ml homework. He read his school reading book more or less willingly, moaned through the short Spanish mini book and then didn't want to do any more. He's only 5.5. I like the idea of getting into a routine for when they're older but I don't want to force it. Perhaps I shouldn't try to do it all together? Anyone have kids this age? Are they willing? Thanks!
My son will soon be 5. He tends to not want it when things get a bit harder or a bit serious. Then I switch to something else which is more playful, something which he is good at, then he gets into it.

We just ordered our first big batch of books/workbooks to help in our beginning homework aims this year! In the ML our 4 year old is already reading short 3-letter words, but other than learning the alphabet and now beginning phonics in the ml, I’m not sure if our focus should be on reading or just more general interest like story books? A lot of “school” topics learned in 1 language can easily transfer to the other, so I don’t want to make the homework time seem boring at such a young age.
Amy: Beautiful pictures Adam! The serenity of the place transpired in every pic. Thank you for sharing them

Mayken: Adam Beck, Amy, she got a lot of ml exposure but there's only so many times I can watch a Bibi & Tina DVD. Glad she's back at school today.

Mayken: My daughter's school had the annual lantern pageant yesterday. It always moves me to tears when I see the kids stand and belt out the songs in our ml. This year, the ml kids also recited a short poem on St Martin.

Mayken: Veda, when you go to your "Profile", there's a button at the top right that says "Edit Profile". Then click on the "Personal" tab (and other tabs) to edit the information. Hope that helps!
