Tic Tac Toe Fairy tale assignment for English is due on 20th Apr according to DS. There are 9 tasks for which they have to choose 3 tasks which are consecutive like in the game Tic tac toe. Eg of tasks are lyrics for theme song, recipe, poem etc etc. According to the worksheet, this is anchor activity for GEP P4. I think it is part of term 2 curriculum. Hope this helps.

Solar Cooker is the first year for this Science assignment. Heard last year was a different assignment on cells and membranes? The Tic Tac toe fairy tale english assignment should not be new leh. The worksheet seems to have started since 2007 (footer sstated fairy tales/term2/geo/2007) Maybe your child completed without you knowing? :)

Thanks.


Hehe... I think for me is all of the above. Maybe it is a boys thing. My DS tends to be quite careless or maybe he does not pay attention in school. Sometimes he will miss certain things from school and we found out as surprise last min from friends or when he gets scolding from teacher.

Plus since I am now SAHM, must make sure he doesn't miss anything major or I will not be able to account my value add for staying home to my hubby. :)

Not for my P5 DS too. No tic-tac-toe fairy tale nor solar cooker last year. I told him about this GE P4 year's solar cooker project and he said no fair - this year's more interesting. Last year's cell city was super boring for him.

Thank you for pandering to my curiosity, at least I understand better. :D
