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.

ONE lucky winner will win a set of the Buku Sumber Workbooks of their choice. For Std 1 to Std 4, the set is the Resource Workbook which I just mentioned. Std 5 will get a set of UPSR based exercises while Std 6 will get a set of UPSR model questions workbooks. The winner gets to choose which set he/she wants. Shipping is free.

  1. I have two girls so i would be happy with either the Set3 for std 3 or Set 6 for std 6.

    Shopping for workbooks online would definitely be convenient and hassle free for busy parents especially those with kids from std 4. It saves them the hassle of having to go out just to check whether the new reference books are out.
    As for me, U still prefer to go to the store as it allows me to compare and get the books most suited for my daughters.

    1. I totally agree with what you mentioned about Std 4 books for this year 2014 since they are the first KSSR batch so the books are always slow to come out.

    Buying books online shall ease parents to choose which publisher to look for as it also provide reviews and bestseller rating. This can be a relief for me as a new primary school parents who is still blur in searching for good books for my kids.

  3. My girl is std 2 this year in SJKC. Being a banana and working mom, shopping online for workbooks is a great idea, especially if it comes with tips and example of the content. Currently already doing subscription for magazines for the children ordered via online.

  4. I wish I could win set 4 for standard 4 as I found it very difficult to source for std 4 workbooks from book store as they are first batch of KSSR. Buying books online will be more convenient, and hassle free for me to check on the latest books available.

    Buying from online bookstore such as Peekabook is not only a great way to save time for us working parents because we spent so much time finding a parking space...not only that, i get to choose the books online in the comfort of my own home while comparing with other publishers and reviews of those books I would want to purchase.

    Shopping online is really a great idea! It's really convenience and we, as a parent, can spend more quality time guiding the kids going through the books instead of wandering around the bookshop undecided of which to buy.....

  11. I would like to have Set 3 for Standard 3.

    Buying books via online could create the convenience especially for working mum like me, which i do not need to spend more time to buy a single book. This not only reduces the transport charge (fuel charges and parking fees), it also save time and energy (without the need me to travel from store to store to find the best price). So, i will have more quality time to spend with my families. =)

  14. I would appreciate it very much if I can have the Standard 1 set.

    I left school ages ago and did not see the need to "study" until now. And OMG! Bahasa Malaysia is no longer simple like a for ayam, b for bapa and etc.

    As for the online bookshop, I think it is a real bonus to all the working parents. Hassle free, no need to find time to go to the actual bookshop is a real bonus.

    5 sen to my thoughts:
    1. Recommendation on good workbooks and reading material by teachers or parents who are hands on with their children study load to be published as the potential buyers can have a better evaluation.

    Much thanks

  15. We would love Set 1

    My son is having a hard time in school as he is having to learn BM and Mandarin at the same time. We just returned to Malaysia after being away for 7 years...so having any help especially books that can help both languages would be superb.

    I have been an avid Amazon customer for years, buying everything from baby items to books to shoes! So I'm very pleased that I can continue my online shopping in Malaysia with Peekabook.com.my.

  16. I like the set for Std 1

    I think is good for those mom who had not been to bookshop for long long time ago, some more need to look for the practise book for thie children.

    The online bookshop at least can help us filter a bit on the book that we would like to find for.
    Nowaday there are so many publisher in the market, you not even know which is better.
    Online bookshop like this help us a lot, just one thing is we cannot preview the content of the book.


    Anyway, thanks for recommend.

    1. Hello 欣悦燕, I agree with you that being able to preview the content will be a plus point. However, having said that, I think as long as you get the right publisher the books will not vary much and should be ok to get. Some details on the publisher would also be useful right? Good luck.

  19. I would like to win a set for my std 4 girl. Especially workbooks in mandarin language as I am mandarin illiterate.
    Being the first batch of KSSR, workbooks are always last to hit store. Choices limited until at least several months later. I like the idea of being able to shop online for workbooks as long as it carries not only limited publishers so we have better options. And some preview pages would be helpful to help us decide. Shall take a peek at Peekabook and hope it will help me especially so when we relocate from Pg to PJ once school closes for CNY. At least i dont have to immediately scout for bookstore. Tq.
