Feeding program at school

This week is a feeding program at school were my three-year old nephew enrolled.  Parents  assigned to do the cooking and feeding the kids.  The teacher divides us in five groups and gives us the menu too.  The menu is easy to cook because most of it are vegetables.  The problem is that the kids does not like to eat vegetables that much.  We do to make it look delicious to them and appealing so that they will eat it.  Based from my experienced at home, it is difficult for me to persuade the nephews and nieces to eat vegetables.  But they have no choice because I am the boss they have to obey me.haha!

My group assigned to cook boiled egg dip in a sauce with carrots, potatoes, onions, garlic and red bell pepper.  It is very easy, we just have to slice the carrots and potatoes very thinly so that the kids will eat it.  And we have to really cook it so it is very easy to chew.  As expected the kids did not eat the carrots and potatoes but still we are glad that they like the taste of the sauce and ate the boiled egg.  The kids went home smiling because their stomachs are full.  The feeding program at school is indeed fun.  Also, cooking is surely fun.  I have new recipes to add in my cookbook.

Not allowed to stay anymore

The three months grace periods of allowing the parents to stay inside the classroom is over.  The teacher announce lastFriday that parents are not allowed anymore to stay inside the classroom so the kids will learn to be independent.  Some parents are worried because they can’t leave their kids for it will surely cry.  They can’t leave their kids just yet for they want to look if they kid/s are doing the activity, to see if their kids are well-behave, and their kids knows what to do like to get the notebooks, going to the bathroom and to wash their hands at recess time. I do understand the parents because I can’t leave my nephew just yet, but we have to accept it for the kids sake.

I am confident to leave my nephew though for it will not cry as long as he can still see me.  My concern is that the nephew is lack of focus and concentration.  He will for sure not going to listen to his teacher because he likes to roam around the classroom and play with the toys there.  He has tantrums too if he can’t get what he wants.  That worries me much.  I am confident though that the teacher will do her duties to control the kids and has the patience in handling different kids of kids behavior.  Goodluck to my nephew.  I pray they he will do good without my supervision and will participate in their writing activity at school.

Practicing for the Christmas Festival

Aside from their Christmas party, the nephew is very busy practicing for their Christmas Festival at school.  Their Christmas Festival would be next week and the nephew is on his first stage of memorizing the songs they are going to sing as well as the dance steps.  I do wanted to help but I am not familiar with the songs.  It is a Christian song, but haven’t heard of it.  My bad.  I told the sister to research and save the video so we can practice at home.  But the sister is too busy too preparing for her Christmas party at school.

Yesterday was their first practice on the stage.  And the nephew is just standing there and busy looking at his classmates action and he will follow.  Poor nephew I must say.  In all fairness to my nephew he is eager to learn.  I am glad that he can easily cope up with the actions.  Good job nephew.  I will try to search the songs online, and will help the nephew memorizing the songs.  We still have four days left to practice.  I am not pressuring the nephew though, I just want him to memorize a little.  Good luck to me nephew and I hope you will enjoy your first every Christmas Festival.

Attending meetings at school

Attending meeting is not my cup of tea. It makes me bored because it will take hours to finish. Also, some of the topics being discussed are far from what is in the agenda. I am saying this based from the meetings that I have attended before.   Though this is an opportunity to meet new people, and possible friends’ still it doesn’t interests me, at all. My brother is begging for me many times before to attend school meetings of his kids but I refused because I do not like attending meetings. I can’t relate too because I am not a parent.lol

However, I guess this situation is an avoidable this year because I have attended two meetings already. I am running out of reasons to my brother anymore. Well, I think it is not fair that I am going to attend the school meeting of my sister’s son and will not going to attend at my brother’s daughter. So to be fair, I have attended both meetings. It wasn’t that boring at all now. I did have fun attending the meeting.   I am able to meet new people too. But still I do not want attending meetings. I do hope no more meetings in the coming days, or months.

Finished with honors

Once again, my two nieces did make us proud especially their parents.  We heard the good news that they finished with honors while having dinner last night.  They really did well at school even if it is new to them since they were transferred.  They get easily cope up with new way of teaching, new lessons, new environment and new friends.  They were confused at first and does not want to participate in the class, but they adjusted well.  And now giving the whole family the reason to smile and makes us proud.

Their school recognition will be on the 28th and 30th respectively.  I already bought my present to them as I promised to buy them shoes if they finished with honors.  And they did!  My bad. haha!  Well, I guess what I did was a good motivation for them to do better at school to get a present from me.  They are good kids I must say for they give me what I want them to get.  Congratulations Ronna and Ella, keep up the good works.  Long way to go and I am pretty sure that you will reach to the top because I know you can do it.  God bless always.
