update on summer school

Lately, I am so happy with my little girl's performance in summer school. She comes home from school with stars stamped on her wrists. Thanks to her teacher who shows appreciation for her diligence, she is motivated to learn how to write alphabets one at a time. I might post photos of her work to this blog soon.

She started to become interested to write when she saw her classmates doing the same thing. She also likes it that she gets to wear her dresses to school; although it is such a struggle for her to wake up early. Not really the morning type of person. Anyway, waking up early is a form of discipline for her. Hopefully, she'll get used to the routine.

having fun being in summer school

Summer is still exciting for my little girl as she gets to experience being in a classroom with ten other kids her age. Thankfully, her first day in summer school went pretty smooth. I chose to go on leave on her first day just to make sure that I will be there when she's not comfortable in this kind of environment. Thankfully, she didn't cry even though she witnessed one boy crying because he wanted his mom beside him. :-) I got even more proud of her after she showed me a star stamped on her wrist for a job well done on her first day.



My feelings as a proud mom didn't change even if I did realize later that most kids got the same star on their wrists. :-)





I know she is supposed to have all fun and play during this period but we think it would be a great help for her that she has a good idea on what it will be like come school opening. Anyhow, it is just for one month. The rest of the coaching and getting her primed up for Kindergarten school will still come from us. So, we are now working on making our work schedule a little less stressful for us and for our kid. Between me and my husband, though, I am the one who gets more excited for her. Or so I thought. After all, I am "The Mom". :-)

preparing her for kindergarten school

I mentioned in my other blog that my little girl is almost ready for school. We have already found the school that she would be going to this coming school year. She will be four years old this coming March and her age by then would be just right for Kindergarten I. I tried to tell or ask the teacher who was in charge of admission that she has not even entered Nursery yet. I was a little worried that she might not be ready to write just yet. However, the teacher informed me that her age is more appropriate for K1; and so, husband and I had to defer to her judgment as well as the curriculum. If it were only up to me, I wished she had tried to be in a Playgroup first but I guess it's already too late for that. Anyhow, we're enrolling her for Summer for a month (on a playschool just near our house) just to immerse her on a classroom setting and to get her started on her writing. As parents, we also have our own sessions with her at home just to prepare her for kindergarten. Hopefully, she will learn more and have fun in school. Also, we're trying to get her to be completely without diapers. Right now, we're still letting her wear one but only when we're going somewhere and when she sleeps at night.

Talking About The New Normal

What's the new normal these days? This got me thinking today, and I thought I should make a list. 1. Wearing Masks. Obviously, it'...
