I initially wanted to start Rye Li in kindy this year but Aunty Ng said that it is not necessary since they do teach her the basic stuff at the daycare. In fact, I didn’t realize that Rye Li has homework done at the daycare until towards the end of last year when I was given a thick file of all Rye Li’s work for the year! LOL!
Rye Li learnt her ABCs, 123s, some basic reading through flashcards, writing, maths, drawing, colouring, painting, etc all at the daycare. This mom of hers is plain too lazy to teach her this. Earlier this year, out of the blue, I just tested her with “1+1?” and not expecting much from her, she immediately replied “2”. Surprised, I continued with “1+2?” and she replied “3”….so I thought she remembers them in sequence so I randomly pick any number and went “1+8?” and she replied “9” and so on.
Anyway, Rye Li will be starting kindy next month and she will be at kindy for 2 years before she starts wearing the dark blue pinafore. Since her birthday falls on 31st December, the moment she turns 6 years old, she would start standard 1. And she will definitely be the baby of the class.
And this is also a new chapter for me…can’t believe my baby has grown so big (I don’t even want to think of the day when she leaves my nest for good!) [also, I cannot believe how expensive schooling can be! sigh!]
