Made it through half a year with the boy in P1. Here’s my report card for him.
Things to be grateful for:
-He’s pretty good at the school work and following instructions
-His Mandarin is already better than mine thanks to Berries. Not that he likes it, but at least he’s surviving it..
-He’s made a few good friends
-He helps his classmates in some of the tasks
-He’s learning to control his emotions, after the terrible outburst at the beginning of the year with door slamming and throwing stuff – now its just a sullen face.
Things to work on:
-He’s still learning the ropes on how to handle money
-He tends to push hard for things he wants, even swapping stuff from the bookshop with another kid when he thought the other thing was cooler. I think the other boy didn’t really want the swap but went ahead anyway
-He’s not so self-aware of things and surroundings. Lost a toy from the bookshop the day he bought it!
-Still doesn’t pay much attention in mass. I know this is a tough one, but hopefully it improves.
