My 6-year-old Entertainer in the family

My second son and I were having great time doing some extra work on one sunday afternoon. Last week we did farm animals theme. And that day was supposed to rap up the topic. But still he insisted me to keep the theme until next month. Ok ... up to you boss! Anyway, we're not in a rigid scheme of work like in school.

The funny things happened when I ask him the male, female and babies of animals. He got right for 'chicken'. But, when it came to 'horse' , he told me this impressively.

Zikry: Male horse we call it stallion.
Mama: Very Good!
Zikry : Female horse we call it mare.
Mama: Excellent! :)
Zikry: Babies horse we call it horsie!
Mama: What??!!(trying to figure out his answer while my hand reaching out for a dictionary) (am I so naive or my CPU dysfunctioned?)

Then, My eldest son laughed out loud.. "Mama, horsie is in the TOY STORY3 la mama...!" and then.. I started laughing... (am I late?) ~better late than never~

Mistake makes Me Aware...

My eldest son had his Science 1st topic test. He only had one mistake which made me ''aargghh!”

This is why I totally disagree when MOE backhome first introduce Science and Mathematics in English just to improve the proficiency level of the students. I was an English option teacher and if I were one of the ministry people I would suggest to curb the problem witihin the language itself. Once it has been tackled then you can teach Science and Mathematics in English. Anyway, it was unsuccessful solution. Luckily, we are not in our home country. :) (for the time being)

Back to the mistkake. The Question is : A deaf man has lost his sense of sight. True or False.

My son did not know the meaning of “deaf”. Once you do not know the meaning you definitely answer the question by luck. If it is in Malay, for sure he will get it right. I did revision with him before hand but my questions (made myself) just based on the theory.. I forgot to make questions that applied to the theory. Yeah ...remember??!! I'm not a Science teacher.. and not really interested of science subject during my schooldays..

All Praise and thank be to Allah, Irfan learn his mistake after a post mortem topic test we did together. He learn so did I(learn his mistake). Just a simple word at the beginning (deaf) but will hold it for the rest of his learning period.

I'm Alive!

It's been ages to re-open this page. So many reasons that hinder me from doing so. Yeah right!! it is a lame statement.

Alhamdulillah, I still can retrieve the username email account plus the password. It is definitely and significant achievement for me. Lot's of thinking and rethinking has been done in order to get back the username and password. After delivering my 3rd son 6 months ago, i have difficulties to bring back the memory in my mind. My mama said, "Aida ni dah banyak putus urat tu sbb susah nak ingat" ~ in other words ~ HAYWIRE..............

Awesome! My CPU is working ...! or else someone has to do the CPR brain for me. :) Is there any?

So, What am I going to write? I'm not going to write what I have left behind. I'll write what I want and what I feel.
