Studying for Tests

The kids are studying for their term tests. The boy is studying Chinese Mandarin. He makes a sentence and writes…

“Father Likes me to Work” Work

When I asked him what he meant, he said…

“Daddy always say you must study hard so that you can get a good job. Daddy likes me to go to work!”

The girl is studying English. There is a picture of a family at the zoo. She is required to make sentences to describe the picture. Her final sentence was….

“Father takes a photo for Mother’s Blog.” Camera

I laughed aloud when I read it. I wonder whether her teacher will know what a blog is. Previously the boy said

“Teacher asked us to think about all the things we would like to have for our birthday. Somebody said angry bird and everyone put up their hands. Teacher said she does not know what is angry bird.”

This is why it is important to expose kids to as many experiences as possible. It helps in their studies too. When making sentences, sometimes they will think about these experiences and try to put them into words. No amount of teaching will be able to replace practical experiences.


  1. Ya, and the teacher oso knows what happened in the family, what we eat, where we go....including some embarrassing stuff. So, must teach them apa boleh tulis, apa tak boleh tulis too.

  2. Yes, i like the idea of exposing kids to various experiences.
