Aidan and teacher Vijay..
Let's just start with Aidan's First Day at Q- Dees.. (This entry was written last month :P)
Yes, he went to Nuh's Ark last year for a month, and not liking it that much.. So we surrendered.. But, i have told him that, like it or not, January 2014, he needed to attend his real kindy/school..
We chose Q- Dees as i heard and witnessed a lot of great things from it.. Not that we did not consider Q- Dees last year, but since last year we actually wanted a day care, and since it was in October/ November like that, we decided to pick Nuh's Ark which is closest to my sisters.. It didn;t work out well at all..
Here in Q-dees, his teacher, Vijay also taught his cousins, Wawa and Nurin, and the teachers even know my sister, "Makngah" who picked up Nurin when she was there.. So, i am much more confident with the environment and also the teachers.. It is very important for us to get the right feeling each day when we send our kids to school.. Here, i feel one, so let's just cross our fingers and pray for the best..
Now, it is already a month for my boy, and Alhamdulillah, i just love the whole progress and achievements.. Well, for me, small progress is also an achievement not to be ignored, and constant praises might boost his confident and self- esteem.. With Aidan, it can be easy one day and a battle field for both of us the next day.. Not that he hesitated or refused to go to school (that part is over, he knows his routine already, thank God!), but when it comes to "Homework".. When Aidan refuses to sleep in the evening, he might not be able to focus on his homework at night, claiming that he feels cold and also sleepy (1-2 times, he closed his eyes while doing his math!) :P.. But when he sleeps in the evening and feeling oh so fresh at night, he can do his homework easily, sometimes without having me to be there to monitor..
If this entry happens to be a testimonial for mothers out there, please take note that Q-Dees has a very effective learning/ reading system, and kids easily able to read and recognize the words.. As parents, we just need to constantly support the whole thing like going through what they have learned at school earlier.. I bet all mothers want to be part of this whole learning experience..:) But at home, we injected few other learning methods that Aidan used too since he was just an infant, and proven to be effective as well.. Well, we know our kids even more, right? :))
So, this is some pictures of his first day at Kindy and also a video of him, doing his homework and also reading.. Please take note that this is for his record, and so if you happen to watch the video and feels bored since it is long, (hehehe) please feel free to exit as this is for Aidan to watch back and witness how long i need to seat there with him, while he is playing (ada jer cerita nak bagitau) in the middle of finishing his work! :P
