Primary School Workbooks For SJKC Giveaway Contest

If you are a parent of a SJKC student in a primary school in Malaysia you would be familiar with SJKC Workbooks. Many parents buy workbooks for their children to practice when guiding them at home. I find the workbooks very useful since they come with answers especially the Chinese ones since I do not know a lot of Chinese. What I know is what I learned from my children's books. I usually look for those that come with very comprehensive answers for example in a multiple choice question, the answer sheet would explain all the multiple choices, the correct one as well as why the others are not the answer of choice. Those are great for teaching.

Another workbook which I find really useful are the Resource Books or Buku Sumber by Hup Lick Publishing (M) Sdn Bhd. These resource books are reference books for the vocabulary used in the children's text books for the language subjects, Chinese, English and Bahasa Malaysia. They follow the subject text books closely chapter by chapter. Learning and expanding vocabulary is one of the most important things when learning a language.

Here, let me show you the inside of these books so you have some idea.

 Here is the Buku Sumber Bahasa Cina. It shows the words used in the text books, the meaning of the words, the pinyin, the Chinese radicals, stroke order, synonyms, antonyms, sentence construction and more.

 This is the Buku Sumber Bahasa Malaysia. It includes the definition, the English and Chinese equivalents, the "suku kata", "kata seerti", "kata lawan" and "ayat".

In the English Resource Book you will find the Chinese and Malay equivalents, the plural and singular forms, antonyms, synonyms and sentence examples.

They are excellent for SJKC kids since they are trilingual.

Please note that I am not doing a book review here. However, I do believe that a good thing is meant to be shared. That is why I am really pleased that KSSR Online bookstore Peekabook.com.my has kindly agreed to this giveaway contest on this blog to giveaway these Resource Books to ONE lucky winner.

Kids Project - How To Make Your Own Recycled Paper At Home

My children wanted to make their own recycled paper at home during the school holidays. So we got to work. We got the instructions from my daughter's text book. 

Here's what you need to make your own recycled paper:

1. Newspaper or any other recyclable paper
2. A container
3. A fork
4. A sieve
5. A rolling pin or bottle
6. A piece of cloth
7. An iron

Here are the steps on how to make your own recycled paper at home. It is very easy. Kids can do it with some supervision.

Step 1: Tear your newspaper into strips and soak it for several days. 

If you are wondering what the other spare container in the picture is for. We used it for pouring water into the container filled with paper.

Step 2: After a few days, use the fork to mash the paper into tiny bits.


Step 3: Use the strainer to get rid of access water from the mashed up paper. Note that you are not supposed to push the paper through the strainer. It is only for separating water from the paper or drying your mashed up paper.


Step 4: Use a rolling pin or glass bottle to roll out the mashed paper into a flat piece. We didn't have a rolling pin or bottle so we tried to improvise with an empty cylinder shaped biscuit can. It didn't work. In the end, we found it a lot easier to just shape the paper with our hands. After this you should put the paper away to dry for a day.



Step 5: Put another cloth over the recyled paper and iron it to flatten it nicely.


Step 6: Tadaaa... you've got yourself a homemade recycled paper. My daughter cut hers into four pieces. She wanted to make a card with it and decorate it.


This homemade project for kids on How To Make Your Own Recycled Paper At Home is an excellent way to teach kids that waste products can be recycled and reused.
