Yesterday, went to the elder two’s school for the Child’s Observation Report: 2 Months Review. Although athirAh’s 2 Months Review is not due yet, but we decided to do both together.
Both showing great progress and most importantly they are at par with their age. Coz our main concern of sending them was due to their prematurity. Since athirAh joined later…thus hArith is capable of doing more things than her. But then again, despite being twins, both of them have totally two different personality thus ain’t fair to compare between the two.
In the report, teacher would discuss 6 main areas: Nurturing Practical Life Skill, Creating iMind. Sensorial Education, Learning Mathematics, Learning English, Social Skills and General Work Observation.
Among the things that rather impress me was that hArith is already eating with fork and spoon! At home we only provide him with spoon, didn’t know he can used both! Amazing aight for a 2 year old boy. athirAh is still working on it but has no problem using just spoon.
In the report, it also stated that “hArith can confidently say and identify colours red, blue, green, yellow and orange”. Well actually, i’m aware that he knows his colour coz I taught him the colours when we play with this…
but what impressed us is that he knows the colours regardless what shade they are. Even if i were to give him turqoise, he knows it is blue. So i pointed out at the teacher and oh apparently yes they do that at school. In fact, it is not for him yet but he have been showing great interest when the elder boys do it. They call it Colour Box 3 where they have to grade the colours from dark to light
Since hArith started going to school, his vocabulary increased a lot. And I’m also surprised to know that he is already picking up phonetic sounds. Of coz not all yet, but he already know bout 8 sounds. Well, Montessori system uses the sounds of the letter instead of pronouncing the letter itself.
As for athirAh, teacher pointed out the same thing we noticed on her “…however she only works on those that interest her….” ha, anak mOmmy ni! The teacher said sometime they feel like mak nenek sbb call athirAh byk kali tapi die buat deq jer…if she’s not interested panggil lah seribu kali pun, mmg die buat dunno.
And we noticed that athirAh hardly speaks but if she does the word would be very clear takde pelat2. so teacher said, she’s the type where she ensure she can say it properly then only she speaks. In the report stated ” Although athirAh does not speak much in class, but when she does, it is clear and in 2 words phrase”
Just like the other day, in usual scenario whenever hArith sees flower, he will keep on telling us “flowoo..flowoo”.that day athirAh saw flower in a pot..and suddenly she pointed and say “flower plant” . Yes, she hardly speaks, but when she does, she pronounce it clearly.
The schools’ materials are all placed on open shelves, i’m always impressed seeing the kids can placed back the items once finish, but how come they dont do that at home?? Teacher said, at times when asked to return the materials, athirAh buat dunno…then hArith will come and help out. Wah, kat sekolah pun die big brother tolong adik =)
