Yup... I'm pretty much involve if it's tricky or difficult question.. that's why sometimes concern when my DS frustratingly told me that the teacher has not teach, but were told to do the worksheet... :?


Don't worry too much. Actually, I prefer it this way coz 1)it challenges the young mind, - I enjoy the look on kid's face when she rushes out of the bathroom all wet, with a "Eureka" :idea: look on the facing, telling me that she believes that she has found the solution.

2)it allows me to keep track of what kid is doing in school.
:D


Thanks for sharing... will try to monitor the situation.. in the meantime, maybe get some mainstream book to let him practice..., advisable?


Maybe, you can pick only those challenging sums for him coz you don't want to bore him with drills. Also, assess the situation, don't "drown" him with your own homework. To me, one or two each time is acceptable. :D

I assumed what she was doing is compo. They were given a picture and some points to ponder along the line of what, where, why and so on. Must write about a real life situation based on the pic. Hasn't got it back yet from teacher.

As for erp list, managed to find only a few in the library. For a few others, kid already have them.

I find that it's not easy to find those books in the library, the Popular and San Bookstore (rental). Maybe must try Kino or Borders.

Do all the students take the mini test for Chinese Lang yesterday?

Generally, how does your child feel about the paper?

It's not compulsory to read all or buy them. Just search online at nlb.gov.sg, place a reservation $1.55 and collect at the nearest library.
