We had out first parents-teachers-day on Saturday.
Woke up Saturday morning telling Christopher that we would be going to school today. He looked at me and kinda sadly said "I don't want to go to school." He sometimes says this. Reckon trying his luck if I will agree and he can spend his time watching TV at home!
Anyway I told him that mummy and daddy will be going to school with him. And through out the time in school, he occasionally asked me to hold his hand!
Anyway.....the teacher told me that given I had sent Christopher in last year, she had actually merged him with the (then) 3 year old class. And he has been doing quite well. He knows his numbers till 20 (11-20 still a bit jumpy), all his aphabets, all his colours and all his shapes.
So, this year, he has been merged with the 4 year old class since keeping him in the 3 year old class would only call for boredom! He is beginning to read but he lacks focus. His eyes will be wandering round and round and the teacher has to frequently rap "Christopher, look here. Focus."
I am glad he is doing well. In fact I was surprised that he is above par compared with the other children his age. The teacher of course didn't tell me this. The maid did. She was telling me this boy and that girl cannot do this and that etc.
I was only half listening actually. Coz the place was really noisy and I really didn't want to start feeling too big headed about my own son.
But then the maid also did mention alot of good points about this boy and that girl in behaviour. While my son was a cry baby and a very sensitive boy. :)
Managed to meet a few of his friends. Also managed to meet this boy and that girl's mum/dad! We make friends through our kids sometimes! :)
All in all it was a good PTA.
Went to 1U after that. Went to MPH to buy some gifts for a little boy we were having dinner with that night. Bought some Seek and Find it books for Christopher. Hoping this will help him to sit down and concentrate better. As well as learn new objects and hopefully the word as well.
Reckon part of his learning comes from his being the first child. We spent alot of time talking to him and buying books for him and reading with him.
Good thing my 2nd child is a girl who even now shows signs of wanting to communicate already. Hubby says he heard her say "Nen nen" (milk) the other day. Actually I heard it too. And that day I also heard her say "Milk".
Well.....just watched Alice in Wonderland. And even if we imagined it or it was pure conincidence....it's alright no?
