I remember like the old days when there was time to inform parents to come over to school and meet the teachers to sign the report card. It was that time and moment that I would make my parents proud of me...hehehe ...becoz I always gave good results and they would pad me on the shoulder and said "Pandainyer anak mak ngan abah nih"..at least until Primary School.
At Secondary School, there was no more report card and everything was by alphabet which my parents don't quite understand the calculation. And further more I was a big girl already and just trying to keep up a good grade.
Well enough talking about me. That is an old story...
Today I went to Aina's kindergarten to meet the teachers for the same purpose. Signing off report card and to know about my little girl's performance in class.
Once arived at the kindergarten, the teacher offered some food. So I and Aina sat on small chairs meant for the children and enjoyed the delicous laksa penang. I grabbed the chance to know more about the teachers. I got to know that one of the teacher is the same age as mine and she has 4 kids of her own and being taken care in the same kindergarten. How convinient to have work and at the same time having your kids with you all the time.
Then we went upstairs at the playschool room. Here the teacher showed me the report card and said that Aina has a good potential in class that she always pay attention especially when her good friend Aisya is around. I understand that Aina tends to read when Aisya reads, plays when Aisya plays and vice versa. It's like they are competing with each other. Which I think is a healthy competition.
Aina was asked to demonstrate to me on how she reads the book 1 and 2....at first she kind of shy to read in front of me, after a little persuasion she read on wonderfully. I didn't realize that she could read up to that extend because at home she never reads. I am so proud of her. In maths she is good in addition but yet not so in subtraction (Guess got to give her sometime to master addition first). She also read the Iqraq book 1. Just like reading, Iqraq is also using the phoniq methode which I think is a faster way of reading compared to the old days.
At the computer session, I am told that they are using the software called Smart Educare. Aina showed me this software and I think it is good. It teaches on the shapes and sizes and colours and comparison so on and so forth. Its good to have one installed at home.
Well in general Aina's performance is a bit advance for her age. By looking at the performance chart on the wall, Aina is the first 5 year old student to have reached book 2.
Keep it up honey!!
