After the hard week having my kids exam and house renovation at the same time, you have no idea how happy I was when we went to pick our kids report cards. We found out that both of them made it to the next level. I don’t really worry about my son, but I was nervous about my daughter jasmine because she’s not doing well in the first semester. One reason why I gave up my work the end of last year is to help my kids gets better in their academic, but still is challenging to be patient and inspired them to study. So my daughter improvement really surprised me, I felt proud at her and ashamed at the same time, because I feel like I under estimated her all this time.
Jasmine’s grades raised from total 766 in the first semester to 800 in 2nd semester. She gets better grades in Math (her number one enemy), Science, Social Studies, and English. To my surprise Edgar actually has a decline in some of his grades including English, Computer, Math and Social studies. Last semester he got 874 as Total and this semester down 6 points. The teacher also said that he need to improve his writing. Since he wrote with left hand it’s a bit hard for me to teach him to write neatly.
I know this is not the end, there are still many things need to be improve, especially since next year my daughter will go for grade 6 national exam and I really need to focus to help her studying. But right now I just want to enjoy few weeks of vacation before back to the hustle bustle of studying.
