'Exam' is pretty big word for a 4-year old. 'Assessment' is milder. Excuse me for being ignorance to my son's assesstment time table, but he happens to have his knowledge and skills being put to test two weeks ago. 23 June 2008 to be exact. How did I find out? From the result given by the teacher yesterday.
We were suprised yet thrilled when Ashraff showed us his results yesterday. He got 84% for his Phonics, 97% for his Bahasa Malaysia and both 100% for his Maths and Science.
It was all expected. As mentioned in one of my earlier posts, Ashraff is slightly weak in alphabet recognition, thus his phonics was affected. So 84% is not bad, plus I find the questions quite tough. As for maths and science, that is expected too. He has such a great interest in that..apart from Arts.
As I looked through the papers, I can't believe he did it by himself as he told us so. I can buy his word as so far he is pretty much sincere. If he did it with the help of the teacher, he'll say so. If he is naught at school or fight in school, he'll tell us so.
Oh talking about Ashraff, he is 100% toilet-trained, both day and night. Yippee! He'll wake us up at night to pee. So far, he's diaper-less at night for the past one week without any accident. Now I have to wean him from bottle. Talking about weaning, there's 2 tough jobs that I'm targeting to do in the next few months. One is to wean Ashraff from bottle..and a much harder job is to wean Aliff from bfeeding. Phewhhh..please God, make my task easier...
