Passed the Entrance Examination

This is a bit late but still I want to share it here how happy we are and blessed for the good news we recieved from above. The nephew took the entrance examination at the school that his brother is studying. We really want him to get in the school because the school is really nice. Not like his older brother, this five year old nephew is a shy type, and lack of self-confidence. But we did our best to make him ready for the two days entrance examination. We motivate him and told him that if he will do his best and do well, he will recieve a reward from us. Of course, with lots of prayers.

We got the good few weeks before the enrollment starts. We are the happiest when we saw the name of the nephew passed. It is an answered prayer indeed! Nothing beats the power of prayer I must say. The nephew is now enrolled and his first week was fine. Although he is a bit slow, but we sure he will catch up. I wish you all the best in the ne and big school. Good luck on your kinder 2 life nephew. Remember that you always makes us so proud no matter what. Thank you Lord very much for this wonderful blessing!

Efforts Rewarded

Every reading of honors and viewing of report cards, we always hope that the nephew will be part of the top 10 and have a nice grade. For the past two gradings, the nephew was not able to be part of the top 10, though he has nice grades, just that it is not enough to be awarded as one of the academic excellence awards. But we are not losing our hope and continue praying that the nephew will get this award before the school year ends. We challenge the nephew that if he will get high grades and make it to the top 10, we will grant his wish.

It was a good challenge I must say because the nephew made it to the top 10. I am so happy when I fetch him at school this afternoon, he showed to me his Academic Excellence Award. I am the happiest aunt indeed. Our effort was rewarded especially his mom who patiently helping him in studying his lessons and doing the school assignments. The mother (my sister) is so happy seeing the award that her firstborn got on third grading period. This is the first ever award that the nephew got this school year and praying that he will be part again of the top 10 on the fourth grading period. Congratulations JC, you make us all proud. Keep up the good works. It is a long way to go, nephew, continue doing good at school.

Will start his tutorial soon

The entrance examination for kinder 2 at the school where the sisters firstborn is studying is this January. My sister is planning to enroll her second son to the same school because the school has a good reputation. It has the high standard of teaching. If you want to enroll your child in this school, the child should be passed the entrance examination. There are many examiners every year and they only get 120 children who passed the examination. The sister wanted her second son to be in this school that is why she enrolled him at the learning where there are few students.

So far, the nephew shows improvements but not enough. He can write his name already but not fast, and he needs to know how to read basic words. For the nephew to have the high percentage of passing the entrance examination, we decided to enroll the nephew in tutorial class. The nephew is now enrolled and will start his tutorial class next week. We already told the teacher our concern so she will know where to focus on teaching the nephew. Hopefully, this will be helpful for the nephew to pass the entrance examination. I wish the nephew the best of luck!

The first examination result went well

The first examination of my four-year-old nephew is very stressful. The pointers are very long and we are having the difficult time teaching him because he is very playful, does not listening to us and keeps on moving here and there. He gets easily distracted with noise and kids playing outside. Though we are not pressuring him because he is just started, it is right to study his lessons so he can answer their test papers correctly. The examination took two days and two subjects per day. We are giving him activities during our study sessions and he likes doing it. He is cooperating doing his activities.

The result was given to us last Monday. We are not expecting for good results because the nephew is very slow in memorizing the lessons and easily forgets what we studied. But we are glad to see the results of his first grading examination he gets high scores. I must say it went very well. He got the perfect score in one of the subjects and I am so proud of the nephew. It is a long way to go and I hope the nephew will continue doing good so he will be ready for Kinder 2 next year. Hopefully, he will pass the entrance examination for Kinder 2 next school year.

Happy to get stars from the teacher

After two months of being at the learning center, we are happy that the nephew is really showing improvements. The teacher really taking good care of my nephew’s needs. He is listening to the teacher, studying her lessons and loves to write a lot. He writes and participates during the class because he likes getting stars from the teacher for the job well done. It is a good decision to enrolled him at the learning center that is less crowded because the teacher can focus on the kids with special needs. They give lessons one-by-one for the kids to understand the lessons very well. I am hoping that at the end of the school year, the nephew will be so ready to take up entrance examination for kinder 2.

We do not have any idea of the nephew’s performance inside the classroom because his father will just drop him off to school before going to work, and I will just fetch him at dismissal time. Though the teacher told me that the nephew is doing well, I still have some doubts. Maybe the sister just told me positive things for us to not get worried. But I have proved that the nephew is listening attentively and take part during the class. I saw a less shy nephew I must say. I am happy for him. Keep up the good works nephew.
