A day at Kindy

Ooohh...have i told u about izzah starting her kindy..guess not!! She has already started 3 weeks ago..

First impression..the headmaster was friendly and super sempoi..wearing t-shirt, pants and a pair of sport shoes..i guess for me that is sempoi coz,, im used to seeing headmaster wearing formal attire..

they had started a week earlier, we missed that..2 times a week 9am-3pm...again..i said..lamanya!! buat apa kat skolah lama2..bukan blaja apa2 pun..

izzah in her school shirt..it comes together with a skirt..but knowing izzah, she dediced not to wear the skirt that day..luckily school uniform is not compulsory for kindy kids..

then i met the teacher, and they gave us the school time table..
they had lots of activities..mostly izzah had done it all at home..colouring, pasting, puzzles, singing and reading story books.. but i find the main focus is to teach them to be independant and socialize with friends of their age..ooh and another thing..for izzah to learn english as well..

writing izzah's name on all her hats, etc
they have a break for fruit time, something like a tea-break, except u'll be eating fruits and share it with all ur friends,lunch, and have 20-30 minutes break for nap time.. they need to bring along their own cushion to sleep though so that they'll be more comfy sleeping and remind them of home.

the class teacher..ms sobejko

i had no problem sending izzah to school..the only thing that worries me is her problem with toilet training..we had done it all..the potty training, 15-20 min every day..what happended was she fell asleep in the toilet..LOL...can u believe that!!!
then we tried counselling..doesnt work either..then we tried other irrational ways like threatened her with no madagascar and toy story, doesnt work either...
and last resort.. reward!! will give her a super-duper cool toy if she goes to the toilet..and yet it didnt work!! OMG..im in total lost!! well after lots of attempts, what else we're supposed to do!! pray to Him that izzah will eventually go to the toilet and do her thing there!!

at last...few days before she starts her kindy..suddenly i saw her starting going behind the sofa, nak mula kan aktiviti die..i urge her to go straight to the potty..and to my amazed she did that exactly...hooraayyyy!!!! after that we cheered and praise her and went straight to Toys r us and bought her 'Jessie' the cowgirl character from toy story 2 (as promised,hehe)

luckily they still sell it here..(kalu Toys r us kat sbg parade yg hampeh tu jgn harapla aderr).Gosh...what an experience..dahsyat betul..nak amik exam x teruk camni..kene crack kepala mikir idea..

well now izzah is enjoying her kindy, she starts to remember her friends n teachers' name ( ooh they have a teacher and asst teacher..common thing here..in primary schools they have up to 3 teachers at a time in a classroom..imagine thattt!!!)

the assistant teacher..mrs tacher..look at the back of the pic..all the bags are hanged on the wall..the children has to hang the bags themselves..(teach them a thing or two about being independant ;))

im hoping the best for izzah..and at the same time..so that she can learn to make frends and other things at schoolits actually another challenge for me as a mother, u know its a new routine..wake up early morning, prepare her lunch box, send her to school n pick her up..hihi..lesser time surfing n blogging eh now..ermm guess i need to arrange my priorities in my time now
