talking hands


erika was quite mad after much struggling and not getting back her game boy from ellisa, so i try to make her happy and showered her with lots of attention…taking pictures of her, her hands…and just give attention to her alone.

she loves weekends and hopes they never end...also love school holidays...in fact any day that don't have school, she's happy.

i know this new kindy is tough. at least once a week, spelling test in either english, bahasa and mandarin, very unlike her montessori kindy the last 2 years, but she is coping well. of cos more xxxxx than tick, in fact there are 1 or 2 times all wrong too...but i never punish her or put any emphasis on them or any pressure on her...let her adjust slowly...i can see that the xxxx are getting lesser, so she must be getting the hang of the situation in kindy.

one of the reasons she gets her spelling wrong is she still writes her alphabets in "mirror" images...e.g. 'b' can be written as 'd', or 'p' as 'd' so even though orally she spelt correct, written can be wrong! oh well! she's learning la.

Your erika is so cute!

Most children went through a phase of letter reversal with b/d/p/q, very common.

Do be cautioned if it's prolong or have other red flags up.
