Since this is my first experience to review my three-year-old child for his first examination in Nursery, I do not know yet the best way in reviewing a child. I know it is the instinct of a mom of how she can teach her child because mother’s know best. Mother is patient so I need to be calm and extend more patience with my sometimes naughty cute child.
Tomorrow is the start of their exam. We already started the review in some areas, now is the last day of review. Way back when I am still studying in grade school, I remember my mama of how she patiently created a reviewer for us. We are four siblings and I am the youngest among my two sisters. Her old method of reviewing seem to be effective because we are getting good grades. Although I am not always honored student, I keep my good grades as above average and always in the star section. Now that I am a mom, I will use my mom’s method in reviewing my child.
The photo above is the reviewer that I created today. Since the exam for the nursery students focus on eye motor coordination, big and object illustrations should be presented to the child.
What did I do to prepare the reviewer for the nursery student?
I made it simple. All you need is a carbon paper, their nursery workbook, pencil and bond paper. Choose some topics/ pointers or pages that needs to be answered by your child. To draw the object illustrations for a certain subject or topic, I use a carbon paper to copy easily and draw the image from the workbook to the bond paper. This way the pictures or objects illustrated in their Nursery workbook is almost the same with the reviewer that I make. I believe it will be easier for little children in nursery, preparatory or kinder to comprehend using the materials alike to what they use in school.
During examination days, as parents we should not forget to prepare something healthy and special that will boost our child’s energy and enthusiasm in studying. Just a few hours ago, I went to Goldilocks to buy something special for my little boy. I will share what I bought in my next post. Remember our children needs enough rest and food especially during examination week and we should keep away first the toys that might cause disturbance in their review.
All the best to all Super Moms!
