March came and went. We are almost halfway into October. How time flies!
C adapts well in his Primary school.
His school implements STELLAR programme for English and Mathematics.
There are no textbooks for the 2 subjects. C does mostly on worksheets.
He learns writing short compositions in Term 3. His writing has a room for improvement. He needs to remember his grammar rules such as a capital letter after a full stop.
He grasps Math concepts very quickly. He can do most of the Math questions. Sometimes, he makes careless mistakes.
The boy has homework almost everyday. He does them independently. When he needs help, he approaches his grandma. Else, he would wait for me or Papa in the evening.
There is a reading programme for P1 & P2. A student has to read a few pages of a book to a reading volunteer parent in the school library during recess.
C participated in the reading programme. We borrowed many books from nearby library. My mum helped him to read hanyu pinyin books with correct annotation. The efforts paid off.
He has passed the 100th book mark and received a gold badge for both English and Chinese. :)
The award chard for English books
In addition, the school sets aside 5 to 10 mins of silent reading before the assembly starts.
The programme and silent reading spurred the boy to read a wider range of fiction and non fiction books.
C was made a group leader in the first term and a class monitor in the second term.
His class teacher rotates class monitor and group leader every term. I like the arrangement. This gives others a chance to be one.
All in all the boy enjoys school and friends very much.
