#Now listening: Flightless bird, American Mouth ( Wedding version )
Having a four days long holiday like everybody else, the difference is now I'm a free bird who no longer have to plan a study timetable and headache on tons of reference books. Aha, no homework, no revision! TV, sleep, eat and enjoy life! This is it :D
The reading centre I'm working now will be closing for four days as there's 4 days of public holiday. I'm gonna miss the kids I guess! x) After three days conducting five classes with them, I realise that it is not that bad to teach kids actually ( if only they cooperate ). I'm still not experienced enough, but the kids still do not dare to " climb on my head" as I'm new there.Yeah, a good thing indeed.
There's a girl name Caitlyn which is just stepping into three years old. She's very cute, with an angel face. However, I guess she is still too young to concentrate for a long period, so teaching her is a hard task. But her memory is no doubt very good! She will disturb me when I'm teaching the other kids by tapping my hands, charging my back with her head and keep calling "teacher, teacher " then talked a lot after that which I can barely understand a word.
E Shaun, another boy who is also three year old plus. Ahh he is definitely better than Caitlyn. He is scared of cane, thats why. Duh, I don't like to use cane. It's not hard to teach him but he always refuses to answer me GAHHHH. I'm forced to use tricks, telling him I'll give him some angry bird chops after he finish three words with me. Sometimes I will scatter all the cards on the table trying to ask him, and guess what? He will ask me instead. It's cute but sometimes he is really making me crazy.
Something cute about him, he only sits on a blue chair and everytime when he asks my permission to go the toilet and realises I'm not following him, he will ask me with an innocent face, " Teacher, you not following me? " So everytime I'll have to follow him and wait outside the toilet. After he finishes his business, he will tell me he wanna wash hand. I'll have to help him to wash his hands and rub his hand with some soap ( he is too short to reach the water so yeah, I have to help him ) After he done his washing he will run to the stand fan outside the class,putting his hand in front of the fan, tying to dry his hand. Awwww, so cute of him, isn't?
And there's this girl Ee jing, 5 years old who cannot even spell her name correct sometimes. Oh well, perhaps she's a little not so confident. Whenever she meets some difficult words, she will ask me to trace dots for her to write. I'm mean, I force her to write herself. On the third time when she didn't want to try and I asked her what happened, she grinned and ran away from me, telling me that " teacher, you don't want to trace dots dots for me" As what I've expected, she ran to another teacher asking her to trace dots for her. I'm meanie! xD
Louis, my first fan, according to the principal. He asked the principal when I'll be coming to teach because he wants me to teach him. And guess what? He is willing to wake up early to attend the 9am class as I'll be teaching the class. Before this I just heard that he didn't want to come for morning classes as he said he cannot wake up that early. But oops, because of me, he is willing to do so LOL.
Because..... he said I won't scold him HAHAHAA. See, I'm kind :)
A few more funny kids there. Hope I'll have time to talk about them next time. They are, Yong Yong, Jerome, Kher Quan, Syasya and ...
Working with kids is fun & stressless. They will make you burst into laughter anytime, even its only just a small move, an unclear pronountiation or a funny face. They somehow are angels on earth, bringing us some small happiness in this big big city.
