The nephew has just finished his summer class of speech therapy.  He got four smileys from his teacher and we are so proud of him.  We are glad that the nephew shows development in speaking.  He can slowly communicate with us now and we are so happy for him.  He will continue his therapy for six months for him to develop more.  We were advice by the teacher to enroll the nephew in regular class for him to interact with other kids.  The decision of the sister to have home schooling for the nephew is cancelled.  Because we will enroll him in regular class because he is normal just that his development is slow.

The sister is seeking advices from friends and co-teacher about her son’s condition.  And home schooling is their advices, and then go to developmental pediatrician for evaluation.  However, the nephew’s teacher at speech therapy class told us to have him enrolled in regular class. And told us that the nephew is now ready to go to school and be with other kids, provided that the student in his class should be at most 15 students.  More than 15 students are not good for him.  It would be more crowded for him and he will not be able to concentrate.  The nephew is now enrolled and their classes will start on June 13, 2017.  The nephew will continue his therapy for six months, and it will be once a week since he will attend regular class on weekdays.  Good luck to the nephew.  Long way to go and we are sure that you will go well and will make us all proud of you!

Enrolled and not ready to go to school yet

The classes for the school year 2017-2018 will start in two weeks.  The kids are already enrolled and we are glad but the kids are not.  Why?  Because they are not yet ready to go to school.  They said that their vacation is too short and they want to play more than going to school.  However, they do not have any choice but to go to school.  Tomorrow their parents will buy some of their school requirements and uniforms.  My niece and nephew will go to a new school. It will be a new environment, new people, and new classmates to make but I am pretty sure that they will do well in their new school and can adopt easily.

Aside from the kids, I am not ready yet for this school year.  I haven’t rested well I guess.  I haven’t had my me time for the entire school vacation because the sister is too busy attending seminars here and there.  I just have to breathe in and breath out and pray that God will give me more strength to do all my jobs with the kids.  It will be more tiring for me because I have my seven months old niece.  I just crossed my fingers.  Sleeping late and waking up early is coming up.  I need more vitamins and energizer.LOL

Are you or your kids ready to go to school?  Or still, have vacation hangover?

Back to school

Tomorrow is the first day of school of my nephew after two weeks of vacation/sembreak.  It’s gonna be a battle persuading him to go to school especially now that his mom is home.  His mom, my sister just gave birth last October 31st and she is on maternity leave for two months.  I say it is a battle because the nephew is a mama’s boy.  When his mother is around he likes to be with her all the time.  He will not like to go out or go to school knowing that his mom is at home.  Just like what happen when his mother leave work for a day because of prenatal check up.

I am back to waking up early tomorrow, getting myself ready and the nephew and sending him off to school and fetching him.  Tomorrow they will start to do more activities in writing, and toothbrush lesson too.  I felt guilty because I did not teach him to write his name and letters.  I just allow him to play with his cousins and brother during sembreak/vacation.  Well, I just want him to enjoy moments with his cousins and brother.  I do hope that the nephew will show more improvements so he can be ready for kindergarten.  The nephew is in nursery class by the way, preparing him for kindergarten.

Will try his luck in three weeks

The sister is planning to transfer her son next school year to the school where she wants him to study.  That is why she puts her son in a school where he will be teach well and will develop his writing and reading skills.  The nephew already knows and recognized letters, numbers, colors, shapes and animals.  The basic things that he needs to learn to be able to get in the school where his mother wants for him.  The nephew knows a bit writing his name, but not nicely done because he is complaining of his name.  Saying, his name is too long.LOL!  Partly, the sister felt sorry for her son, but she likes his name and she can’t change it.haha!

The nephew has two weeks to practice and we are double our effort to teach him.  I hope that he will master the things he needs to know before the examination period.  We are praying that the nephew will passed and will be studying in the school that will surely give him the best learning and values.  Also we pray that when the examination comes, his laziness will not strike him so he can do the test will and give the right answers that the teachers wants him to do.  Good luck nephew and break a leg.
