Sharlene Has Fully Recovered From Chicken Pox And Is Going Back To School Today

Thank you everyone for your get-well wishes. After being confined at home for 9 long days, Sharlene’s finally going back to school this morning. Her mild chicken pox has all dried up, however there are some tiny scars on her body and one prominent mark next to her lips. Hopefully, all of them will go off in time to come.

She will be having test for the whole of this week, starting from today with B.M subject. I did revision (based on the lists of test contents given by her school) with her over the weekend. She was quite co-operative and didn’t fuss or complain much whenever I teach her. This year the school is going to set some really tough questions for their 5-year old preschoolers. I don’t think at such a young age they will know how to ‘re-construct a mix-up sentence’. For example, from ‘sedang Saya menulis.’ to 'Saya sedang menulis.'??? I had a tough time trying to teach her this and she didn’t seem to get it right...Arghhh :( After a few attempts, I finally gave up cos I didn’t want her to get stress up with something that are beyond her comprehension. Furthermore, I was stressed too...haha. Anyway, I just hope she will try her best to complete the test.

She should reach home by now. I am going to call home shortly to ask her about her day in school and also whether she can answer her B.M test paper :D Have a great week ahead, everyone!

Good to hear that Sharlene's fully recovered and back to school. Can sense your relief there! Those sentence constructions are really tricky for a 5 yr old...I had my fair share of stress with my boy. Still can't understand why our little kids have to stress over such stuff at this tender young age. I wish they could enjoy their preschool years, like how we did...

It's always harder to teach our own children, right? We expect they can do it and when they can't, we get frustrated.

Its great that Sharlene is doing well now... she will do well in her tests also so don't worry just back her up at every step of the way. :)

Wow.. didn't know that they teach BM for 5 year old kids???
That is tough! But i suppose it prepares them when they enter Primary 1.
Good thing Sharlene's Chicken pox was mild...

Good news that Sharlene has recovered from chicken pox. The scar will be there for a lil while, but dont worry, it will eventually gone.

I love BM a lot when I was in secondary school.
I do think that ‘re-construct a mix-up sentence’ is a bit difficult at her age. Hope that she can answer it in the exam.
