Happy to get stars from the teacher

After two months of being at the learning center, we are happy that the nephew is really showing improvements.  The teacher really taking good care of my nephew’s needs.  He is listening to the teacher, studying her lessons and loves to write a lot.  He writes and participates during the class because he likes getting stars from the teacher for the job well done.  It is a good decision to enrolled him at the learning center that is less crowded because the teacher can focus on the kids with special needs.  They give lessons one-by-one for the kids to understand the lessons very well.  I am hoping that at the end of the school year, the nephew will be so ready to take up entrance examination for kinder 2.

We do not have any idea of the nephew’s performance inside the classroom because his father will just drop him off to school before going to work, and I will just fetch him at dismissal time.  Though the teacher told me that the nephew is doing well, I still have some doubts.  Maybe the sister just told me positive things for us to not get worried.  But I have proved that the nephew is listening attentively and take part during the class.  I saw a less shy nephew I must say.  I am happy for him.  Keep up the good works nephew.

Moving Up Ceremony

Yesterday was the moving up ceremony of my pre-schooler nephew.  It was one of the important days of his life as a student.  Though he does not really understand what is happening still we are so proud of him because of the development we have seen in him for the past months.  His parents are present at the ceremony.  They took a day off yesterday to give time to their son.  Also, for them to be able to see how their son participates in their dance presentation.  And he dances happily during the presentation.  I am the happiest person seeing the nephew’s development.

The nephew got two ribbons during the ceremony.  He got most polite and industrious pre-schooler.  We did not expect it because the nephew is a bit shy in the class.  Well, only the teacher knows of the nephew’s attitude in the class.  We are so proud of him.  Next school year, he will be in the new school.  New people, new surroundings and new friends to meet.  I hope that he will continue to show more developments.  It is a long way to go for him and I am wishing him the best.  Continue to be a good student Andrei.  You did well.  We love you bunch!

Mental and Ability Skills Examination

Today is the scheduled mental and ability skills examination or non-verbal examination at the school he currently studying.  The examination is to determine their skills.  Also, to check if he is ready to enrolled in Grade 1 next school opening.  The teacher just informed us yesterday.  It was an abrupt announcement.  We do not know how they are going to test my nephew.  His mother (my sister) and my nephew did study basic last night though so the nephew won’t get nervous or for him to have an idea.  We just hope for the better result of my nephew’s examination.

When I fetched him from school, I asked the nephew of how was the examination.  He is confidently said that it is easy and he easily answered the questions.  Yes, I smiled because he did not have a hard time on their examination (hope he is telling the truth).LOL  We prayed that the nephew will passed the examination so he can still study at the school he is studying right now.  His verbal and written examination (Baseline test) will be on March 4, 2017.  Another study lesson with his mother soon.  Hopefully he will passed all the test because he is so exited to enroll in grade 1.  Good luck nephew.  We know you can do it!  God bless!

Thank you teachers

Today is the celebration of Teacher’s Day.  The day where we give tribute to all the teachers for their job of educating the future generation.  It is a noble and tough job I must say for they handle all kinds of kids with different behaviors, also kids with disability.  Teachers played very important part in molding the kids into a better person.  As they say, teachers are our second parents and school is our second home.  And it is right to give them a day of tribute for the job well done.  And to make them feel they are loved and we all are thankful for them for teaching, loving and caring us while at school.

Having said that, I want to say my warmest thanks to all the teachers for they have played big part of my life.  My mother died when I was nine (9) and I am longing for the love and care of a mother which I find it to all my teachers.  I look at them as my own mother.  So I strive hard, do better and do all the best that I can so I can achieve my goals and dreams in life.   My teachers mold me to become a better person, but of course my family as my inspiration.  So, thank you teachers for all the teachings and help.  God bless you all!
