Primary 2

It is just the 3rd week of school, not only the homework load has increase but I have noticed that everything is getting tougher too.

JS had spent a lot of effort and time to do her homeworks. She is trying very hard to be neat and learn the best. I am also doing my part to coach her and check on her homework. But still almost everyday, she brings back work that need to do correction. I find her teacher is so meticulous and particular, especially her Mandarin teacher. There’s just so many writing words need to be correct just because some minor stroke is not done correctly and which I have failed to spot.

There’s also a lot of unclear instructions, for example she actually need to photocopy a certain page from the text book and paste it into the exercise book. I suppose the instruction was unclear and she never told me about that, instead of photocopying, she drew the pictures herself.  Teacher gave her wrong , folded the whole page and asked her to redo because she has drawn the picture instead of photocopy it.  In this case, I don’t know why is all the fuss, after all, what she needs to learn is living and non living things in science. As long as she knows what they are.

* WH’s school work is also getting more challenging, which I really need to spent time with him to make sure he is on pace.  Now I have busy nights coaching the both of them.
