Last week, I was wondering how Liam is doing in school. Well, I know he’s learning naman but I want to know his social development. Eto naman kasi ang main objective namen ni Dino when we decided to put Liam in school. I was already planning to go to Liam’s school and talk to their Preschool head mistress. I plan to ask for a narrative report then Donna gave me a notice from the school that we will have our first PTC (Parent – Teacher Chat). Meron naman palang ganun. Excited lang ako masyado.
This morning was our scheduled meeting with Maju marj (Teacher Marj, that’s how Liam calls her lang 🙂 ) Well, it was an informal meeting lang and T’ Marj started by giving us Liam’s report card.
Kakatuwa diba? Play Group lang may report card na, I was expecting a narrative one, but when I saw this, I like this better, as I don’t have to read a lot to know how my son is doing. Tamad mode.. hehehe
Ang cute ng report card nila diba? Anyway, the legend goes like this:
- Star sign means “I can do it.” this means that he is good at it already.
- Heart sign is for “I’m getting there.” It shows that the child is trying to do it, but not yet good at it.
- Last is the Smiley Face sign which says “I will do it soon.”
Liam only got 1 smiley face for tracing broken lines and T’ Marj was fast to explain that they haven’t tackled this yet. That this activity is not up until 2nd term.
She told us that she’s only having a hard time with Liam letting him play with his classmates. Liam prefers to play with her or Donna (adults) than playing with other kids. Thus, Liam got all hearts in the Social category. As per T’ Marj, this is normal for his age (especially Liam is the youngest among the group) and he will eventually learn to play with them too. Dino and I also thought this might have something to do with the fact that he is our only child (for now, that is) and the fact that he only plays with adult at home.
T’ Marj also mentioned that Liam is a fast learner and very observant that even if he is not paying attention in class (he sometimes run around the class during lessons) he knows what is happening and knows how to answer when asked. He is also compassionate and knows how to share his toys.
Lastly, she commends that Liam’s sense of security is very strong. He doesn’t get jealous easily even if Donna plays or tries to carry other kids. He knows he is well loved.
Dino and I made sure to tell T’ Marj our expectations as well. We told her our objective is for Liam to learn to interact with kids his age, as this is impossible at home and that we want him to be independent. I hope that she keeps that in mind and helps us improve Liam’s sociability.
Some side notes:
- notice where Liam got all stars? Motor skills and Music. Music!! Singer talaga tong anak ko pag laki! AHEM!!
- notice where Liam got hearts naman? (except for the social ha), scribbling, poems, doing art activities by himself.. Naku! tamad mag sulat ang anak ko! May pinag manahan.. (diba Judz? hahahaha)
