Still no craft for this lesson. Plenty of kids were crying. Apparently most are unfamiliar faces. One of Yvette’s classmate mum was inside the class. Her child was still not able to adapt to this new environment.
And the video I got from her classmate’s mummy.
No more parents accompanied class for Yvette. Finally a year hard work from me, Yvette is able to blend in the class very well. She was there first. She started with books then moved on to the toys. I found that going there early indeed helps her to warm up.
From far, I could tell she has no problem all by herself. C and G (her pal in music class) joined her in this class too. I love to see all these girls grown up together as most likely Yvette and G will be the only child in the family.
The above picture taken by C’s mummy who stay outside the class. No craft today. Mostly singing and dancing. And the lesson for today class.
Haha.. I know this is a bit not right but I am trying to keep up in Dec as such I decided to pen in this post while trying to fill in the gap. I must say attending this enrichment class has add on to her interest in Chinese and the lesson is really value for money. (I guess I have emphasized this point again and again.)
Anyway, this is last lesson of term 3. This term they are learning Animals and Frog is the last animal for this term.
The craft for this term is really interesting and I really heart the frog as much as Yvette. She is coping well and from time to time I did see she is trying to put in effort to “detach” from me.
We will be taking 4 weeks break after this lesson. And I am so happy Gwyn and Crystal are joining her. I hope she will continue to love this class with new accompany – her friends.
I received a letter yesterday informing me the classes for next year is opened for registration and I have decided to continue sending Yvette to this enrichment class.
The registration dates for 2012 classes are on 08th Oct 2011 & 09th Oct 2011 from 0900-1730 respectively.
There is one reader asking me how good is Cherry Tots. I won’t say this is the best class but it has really capture Yvette’s interest in learning Chinese. She is always looking forward to go to the class.
Having said that, Yvette is now in opposition to go class on her own despite we been preparing her for the change. I hope she will finally receptive to it and love this enrichment class more.
Update again on 08.10.2011
The above time line is for existing student. For public, it will be another 2 weeks. Do call them.
I went to make payment today and this is what I have signed up.
Initially I do have a second thought to sign Yvette up for their Fun Chinese. But due to the fact, it will be her first time attending the enrichment class on her own, I decided to drop this idea because Fun Chinese will be a big change for her. It is a 90 mins class instead of 75 mins.
Lastly, here is the course outline for Cherry tots for 3 yo. (For the benefit of some readers out there, I took this from school and post it here.)
It the last lesson of the term but Yvette is still really forward to this class. She really loves the Chinese Class. As long as I “threaten” her not to bring her to the class, she will guai guai go to sleep on Saturday night.
She looked so fresh this morning and woke up in time to get ready.
I can’t really recall how the lesson was conducted. Here’s the craft and the lesson.
She loves this lesson very much. One very obvious reason is, she loves Apple. The teachers actually impart them a lot of knowledge of Apply to the tots during the lesson. They had apple juice and as well as given a slice of apple during the lesson.
They did the apple stamping art during the lesson.
Yvette was so willing to went up to the board and sang song learnt with her classmate!
My little Yvette today. She was extremely happy in class.
The lesson and the craft.
Definitely, with pictures, it’s able to help me to recall what had happen in the class. She was still sitting far away from me. (She didn’t behave this way now.) She was siting beside the purple top little girl.
This picture was really crappy but then it helps me to pen down they were asked to be a rabbit and hoping toward the hula hook to get the carrots.
