Got Sophie started on #30minrevision after dinner everyday so that I can go through her school homework and smart work to know how's she's doing in school.
One of the strategies that I taught her to tackle MCQs, is to strike off the words that are incorrect to narrow down to the right answer. It may seem basic to us but I've discovered that this helps her to derive the answers on her own which is a great confidence booster.

Starting Sophie on Chinese composition this year because frankly I'm having jitters hearing how it can be a pain later in the year for Pri 2 and Pri 3 when they go full steam into writing. Been getting her to read model compositions which I used to think was a bad idea. But my argument now is if she doesn't even have an idea of what is a good composition then how can she be writing well? Yipe and 30 mins is what we're aiming for.
Do you have any tips for composition writing?

Our blocks of #30minrevision is happening at Hort Park coz I am participating at Garderner Days Out today. Since he's with me for 6 hours its Maths, Chinese and English πŸ˜‰

Today's blocks of #30minrevision are spent looking up the Chinese words and phrases, think there were 30+ of them πŸ˜…. These are the words he did not do 2 weeks ago due to time constraints. He managed to finish all and now he is relaxing. More revision tonight πŸ˜‰
Sorry son, weekends are for serious revision since weekdays are spent mostly on homework.

When we can't visualise, we do live experiment.

And SA1 exams are officially over!! #30minrevision #kidsrsimple #kidsrsimplelearns #lightandshadow #primaryschool #examsareover

When doing Grammar practices, I find that underlining WORDS that give you clues on
1) What is the tense
2) Plural or Singular
is very useful!

If you spot the little doodling, you know this is my son's work πŸ˜‚

I decided to start teaching Comprehension passage word by word with Missy 12. It may seem like hand-holding but I need to share and emphasize to her the many tips from the MCE PSLE EL Parent Workshop. Our first #30minrevision was spent on 2 things:
1) understanding the passage - read 1x before reading the questions and 1x after
2) reading the questions: highlight the tenses and keywords
There are many inferential skills involved and key is to teach her how to ask qns to herself, answer the qns, writing down notes and get used to inferring.

One good way is to draw arrows on the passage as I learnt from the workshop. For eg: Arrows pointing from a word "It" to the right subject in the passage.

5 steps in tackling Comprehension:
1) Read the passage and understand it
2) Read the question and analyse - highlight tenses and keywords
3) Source for answers
4) Answer techniques
5) Check GPS - Grammar, Punctuation, Spelling

I shall be sharing frequently on insta, facebook and blog on how we learn English and other subjects in preparation for PSLE. If you have good tips, welcome you to share with me!

Finally #30minrevision today! We are still working on hos Chinese and its Comprehension Cloze. 6 blanks with words to choose from and he barely gets half correct πŸ˜… He did this on his own in the afternoon and "play cheat" by not looking up the words he is not familiar with.
No short cut my son!

What's your ans for Qn 9?
Science qns can be really tricky and 2 answers can seem correct.

Always read through all options carefully and think "Why is this answer NOT correct?" instead of the other way round. But this will take up much time. So use this method for tricky qns in my opinion.

Science paper has too many qns for that short 1h 45 min. You really have to know your concepts well to do the qns fast and correct.

I finally churn out this post to share with you on the common mistakes and good tips in Compostion writing. Avoid using 'I' too much, don't start with 'One day', don't start with Weather in intro, etc etc. Click on link in bio to read this post!

A gentle reminder to the kids using a lovely editable template I got from @kidsrsimple . We haven't been able to do any revision all week! But still trying #30minrevision .
You can the download the chart template here https://goo.gl/mgU3wj or here http://kidsrsimple.com/2011/11/01/dealing-with-back-talk-and-rude-behaviour/

#30minrevision is spent reading @kidsrsimple post on tackling #Comprehension. We had a short Q&A to clear some doubts. We will dive into Comprehension tomorrow and see how we fare.

Curious about the tips too? Head off to www.kidsrsimple.com and look under PSLE Series to find all the useful tips by Mama Christy.

γ€Šε‰ͺζŠ₯》 Newspaper cutting for the kids. This is a 5min activity per day for reading Chinese articles while I am at work. I skim through ε€§ζ‹‡ζŒ‡ and put 1 newspaper cutting into each ziplock bag. Most importantly, fold it with the headlines/title visible.

You can also incorporate into #30minrevision and do the same for English newspaper like Little Red Dot (only can be subscribed via schools).
.
(Many have asked abt subscription of LRD and ThumbsUp, I called up SPH and was told parents can only subscribe ThumbsUp. And for LRD can only get via school's subscription. Alternatively my son brings back What's Up, another newspaper for students which is similar, this one you can subscribe via http://about.whatsup.sg/subscribing/ . Hope this helps!)

I wrote this into the wee hours last night and am glad that I could publish today to share the 6 STEPS that I have learnt to help Missy 12 understand Comprehension better. I realised that most marks are deducted in Comprehension purely because of not understanding the passage in its entirety. I hope this post will help many out there to score in Comprehension from now on :) Link in bio.

Jia you!! Gambatte!

Our #30minrevision today was on Math and 2nd block of #30minrevision was on Science. Weekends can allow for longer revision but weekdays we can only afford 30min and no more than that. Attention span is short on weeknights too.

How we learn Science today:
- Going through CA mistakes and reference back to our Ultimate PSLE Guide book to look for the answers and I teach that related topic there and then.

I find this useful because when one refers back to the topic to search for answers, one tends to remember it better, and here we are talking about remembering concepts better.

Stay tune for next sharing of our #30minrevision !

Also, do hop on to @din0mama
for their 30 min revision too!
