With the shift in emphasis, it might be a good idea to focus on CCA.


I think he is the only one in class without enrichment and tuition :laugh:
He spends a lot of time playing and reading :wink:


Talking about reading, I used to think that reading helps in EL skills. Now I am not so sure about some books eg Geromino Stilton's type for lower pri lvl - too much dialogue, insufficient storyline description. I find ah boy writes w/o proper usage of conjunction and varied style.

He has been asking to read books written by Lee Child (Hubby's reading these right now).

I would prefer him to do Agatha Christie and Sherlock Holms.

your boy is so obedient.

When ah boy reads model essays, I will be hearing complaints only. He finds faults with this n that.

I usually give him options.
Option 1: Read this ...
Option 2: Do this..

My boy is still learning to write his essay. Not fantastic yet. Now only so so.. Usually around 7/10 for the pieces of work I give him.
Told him to check up the words in the dictionary. But he will take the easy way out. Just google it.

Your boy is older so more vocal. It's normal. I won't be surprised when my boy starts to find fault with the stories when he is older and forms his own opinions.
