二手书局卖幼稚园“考卷”公众网上怒炮轰

一家二手书局巧立名目,竟售卖幼稚园名校“考卷”,被公众揭发上网炮轰。 网民Lyn在Stomp网站说, 她日前在书城一间书局,看到幼儿园K2的练习考卷及练习本子,大感震惊。 她表示,这么小年纪的儿童,就需要考试卷子,实在没有必要及离谱。 “我翻阅这些本子,发现里头还有具有挑战性的数学题,题目水平犹如我当年小学的程度。” 《新明日报》记者日前走访书城,发现确实有一家二手书局售卖幼稚园考卷。 题目具挑战性,属小学程度。完整报道,请翻阅09.11.2013《新明日报》。

:yikes: I was shocked when I read this article. This is ridiculous. Click on the link to see the photo. The cover page for the "exam papers" are exactly like those primary school papers, with the kindy names listed.

i know of a church kindy that has similar stuffs/standard. Weekly K1 - K2 kids must hv spelling and tingxie. They were made to do many assessment book-like worksheets, incl creative writing enrichment. Not sure if there's a final year exam like this!

Who recognises these exam papers, tell us the name of the kindy!

My boy never have tingxie nor spelling, no homework no exam, when he was in K1 & K2. The childcare centre only taught them mathematics 1-20, not more than that. Now in Primary school, he can still score 80-90++ without tutions... Learning should be FUN!

Free market. If there is no demand, there will not be supply. Personal decision of parents if they want to accelerate their kids. I know of kids who mastered the 4 rules of Mathematics up to about 100 by the time they start p1 and their childhood did not seem stressful.

Although the cover page title is "exam papers" but i believe they are daily worksheets. Some kindys let the kids do alot of worksheets.
