Parents-Teachers Day

We have our first Parents-Teachers Day at Sarah’s kindy a week before school holiday. We’ve explained to her in advance but she’s still quite anxious about the event.

At one stage she even asked daddy not to come to her school (strange); and she looked worried when we were in the class with her…I guess she just feel odd that the whole thing is differ from her daily routine.

Anyway, we manage to have a frank discussion with Sarah’s class teacher. Our main concern all this while is about her social and interaction skill; we was told that she has no problem in dealing with other kids and teachers (a huge relief for us) and to our surprise, teacher even commented that Sarah is a helpful girl at class.

The meeting last about 25 minutes and overall we were quite satisfied with what Sarah has achieved so far in the class; but one thing we really feel she needs to improve is “academic” (in writing and colouring).

Not to worry, Joanne. Sarah still a small girl. Just give her some time more and I'm very sure she will give you surprises when comes to the next Teacher-Parents meeting. Believed me, never under estimate kids especially smart ones like Sarah.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Thanks Wenn.

Thank you so much for your comments, encouragements and supports.
You are right, "never under estimate kids' ability". I hope Sarah can do better next time.

Thank you thank you for your comment.
Looking forward for a better result from her.

Our girl is doing well..but our boy still need more improvement too. Hubby and I arent sad becasue at least they learn something new everyday from school....

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Thanks Kitty for your encouragement.

Thank you too for the great support and encouragement to Sarah.
Great work to Habibati, clap clap!
As you said, at least both of your kids are learning something new from kindy daily, so we have nothing much to worry about. I am sure Habibi will do better next time.

Hi Sarah's Daddy and Mommy:

Bumped into your very informative blog as i am searching for my daughters(14 months) kindy. We are a family from India and have recently moved to Taipei.

Understand from your blog that you did a lot of survey on choosing the right kindy for Sarah. We would love to hear about experiences...maybe you can blog about it(im sure alot of parents like us will benefit from your rich experience :) Btw, i cant seem to figure out which Kindy Sarah finally joined?

Vy good feedback from her teacher. Well done, Sarah! As for writing n coloring, dun worry abt it. She's oni 3+. It'll definitely improve over time.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Hi Slavemom, thanks for your encouragement.
To be honest, everytime I saw her colouring, I will pengsan, hehe. I think she can do better but she is a lil impatient with colouring and writing.
Hope she will do better next round.

Jonathan's colouring and writing also like Sarah. I always tell him not to colour outside the line and trace the writing properly but he never get it right. I also pengsan. Sometimes have to scare him with the cane. :)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Haha, you also pengsan whenever you see Jonathan's work in colouring and tracing. So when you scare him with a cane, will he do better?
One more thing, Sarah also likes to add "bombastic" colour to picture, for eg, blue for the hair or face!
Maybe we needs to give more time for them to practice. And I think sooner, they will make us
happy and proud with better work.
