How Many Days To UPSR 2015?

Hello mums and dads, it is only just slightly over 30 days more to the UPSR 2015 examinations, the final UPSR under the old KBSR syllabus. By now, the schools will be in full gear pushing the kids hard for the final leg of studying. This may include extra saturday classes, seminars etc. Kids may be given pep talks, positive motivation and more to rev them up for the exams.

Websites and Youtube Channels that offer free trial UPSR trial papers and tips will be very busy at this time of the year with downloads by anxious parents. Let us remember that the most important thing we can do for our kids at this time is to make sure they continue to get enough rest, exercise and nutrition.

Are Playgroups really that important? To answer that, we'll have to take a look at what a playgroup does for children?

Free Printable August 2015 Calendar For Kids

I have been busy and haven't had the time to do my free printable calendars. Today, I sat down and realized it is August. Half a year has flown by just like that.

Now is just as good as any time to make a free printable calendar for Malaysian kids for the month of August. Not many Malaysian public holidays in August. Only the Malaysian National Day or Hari Kebangsaan which falls on 31st August. This year 31st August falls on a Monday. That makes it a long weekend. Yay!
