Postby Luvkid » Sat Apr 11, 2009 1:06 pm

Halo everyone,

It's Luvkid here! Newbie since 8 April 2009, but, opps! did not report formally. :wink:

Have been enjoying sharing with everyone out there. Thanks for sharing & thanks for great advice. :D

Some of u should somehow know I am a mom to 2 boys. 1 at age 7, a new phase for primary school life, NEW CHALLENGE, that's why got lots to share!! :love: Another 1 at age of 3, a HORRIBLE 3 :x :wink: , sometimes drive me nuts, sometimes give me exceptional surprise. Anyhow, still very much ENJOYING, though sometimes i really want to SURRENDER, in their growing up moments. Learning with them at same time :pray:

Myself, a full time working mom. Just can't be stay at home mom, i guess. Will be screaming all day :P . Out to work in the day gives me a break from them and back home STRUGGLING with them 8) In fact, bcos of these 2 boys, i spent quite sometimes to get a job suitable in timing so i can handle both work & family equally!! :celebrate:

k lah, visit the forum as much as we can. To share & woes..... :wink:

regards....

Hi Jedamum,

Is always parent STREESING of children not only SA, infact almost stressing over everything about them. From the start of the day till the their bedtime :roll:

Since we both r in the same situation to face, ie our boys' SA, let's keep ourselves relax, less tense and encourage the boys to TRY YOUR BEST!! 8) -My best quote to my boy :wink:

Me feeling stress does not mean me stressing my kid :wink:
For me, the only thing to become less stress is to be more prepared/informed - so if you see me snooping around here more frequently, i am probaby de-stressing...:D

Being in P1 only, my boy has no stress at all.... my stress stems mainly from the 'unknown'..not knowing what to expect as this is the first exam.

Hi Jedamum,

I can understand your stress which i am also facing. U can ask help from yr boy's form teacher to ask for past 3 years exam paper to look see look see. From there, u will know the format & using those paper to let yr boy practise b4 the exam. If the form teacher can't get any pass year paper, get the format, like English-Section A-MCQ of Grammar (10marks),Section B-MCQ of Vocabulary (10marks),Section C-Cloze passage with or without helping word (10 marks).........

I just requested from my boy's form teacher on yesterday, also hoping to get a favourable from her :pray: However, I am still over kiasu to stress my boy got to TRY HIS BEST!! 8), not only stress on the format of the papers :lol:

Me too, will get excited,or rather STRESS over this coming exam :pray: :pray: Cos my boy too, very relax,no stress one....

Hi mathsparks,

We, as a first time mum of kids having FIRST SA in their life for sure will have some STRESS!!! know in later years, we will be facing more.....Just have to juggle with this FIRST year and......... :?:

Report book anxiety...

Postby buds » Sun Apr 12, 2009 3:06 am

Guess what?

When exam over, more stress!
Stress to find out how they've
done.

You go asking them, how? :love:

Teacher mark already? :D

You pass? :pray:

Dunno? :roll:

How come! :stupid:

Didn't you say you got to see the paper? :x

Hah? What? :x :x

Only 70? :x :x :x

What do you mean you think? :shock: :roll: :x


Only to find out....
They actually did ok.

Pass all lah.

Report-book anxiety definitely worse.

SA1 Fever

Hehee.. jedamum... oredi got one stress momma here... dun want
to post my comment too up, later she more stress! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I think i know how you'll ask your son.
After exam paper...
jedamum : so, today paper how?
ds1 : ok-ok can do..
jedamum : so that means full marks lah? :wink:

when report book in hand...
ds1 : mum, report book.
jedamum : how? all band one, right? :wink:

Yup, aniwaes to agree with you (jedamum)..
As rule of thumb, cannot set target too low
until it becomes complacent. Cos if they start
high, and maintain... POWER! If they start high,
then have problem maintaining, still won't sink
too low... But if content with borderline, must
buck up (more) for SA2 (push harder for better
results). But if content with borderline and should
the results slide... can sink quite bad and may be
difficult to pick up from there - plus the confidence
cud have dropped by then..

But, just to clarify... the comment made above was
purely in jest and in general. :wink: Bearing in mind
other forum users who may not have had the opportunity
to help fully prepare their children for SA1 as yet... and
there may be a handful of children who cannot read upon
entering P1... or not sent for any enrichment... many other
possible scenarios here... so i place it as general remark -
"all pass lah".

Besides not all children have been exam-oriented prior to
attending P1... a few children of my friends' didn't even
know if they pass or not. They just bring back paper and
show, "Mummy, i dunno. You see yourself. Pass or fail."

I also understand the part abt worrying abt the "unknown"
thingy... too many what if's lah... dun lose sleep over it...
Morning of 1st exam paper dun lash out too many reminders
and instructions, just a simple do carefully and do your best
should be sufficient - especially for your independent boy...
and mebbe can also add, "try not to make careless mistakes,
hor... :roll: ". Full-stop.

P1 most of the structure of questions are straightforward and
can get it from the book + the mock tests papers given by the
school. Your children should do fine.. :wink:

Mine did well.. :wink:
Very happy with her effort. :celebrate:
