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?

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!

I think she's getting better at Math than me.. 青出于蓝胜于蓝 ❤

Missy surprised me with her independence and self-discipline by setting a day's schedule for herself.

She told me she woke up at 11+ which I told her I would prefer she gets her well-rested sleep than spending waking hours on technology.

It's tough when I am not home to monitor, so it warms my heart to know there are days when the kids spend time fruitfully. Reading, piano, doing hw & outdoor play time to me are what constitute a good day at home.

Now in June, we only have daily #30minrevision time to revise for prelims. But very soon, I will be able to spend more time with Missy. All thanks to my undertanding boss who has given a go-ahead for me to work from home a few days a week up to PSLE! Yay!! #kidsrsimple #psleprep

Today's blocks of #30minrevision are spent looking up the Chinese words and phrases, think there were 30+ of them 😅. 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 😉
Sorry son, weekends are for serious revision since weekdays are spent mostly on homework.

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 😉

#dinomama #sporemombloggers #startingprimaryschool #studysmart #revisiontime

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 😂

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 😅 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!

Some thinking here. Not difficult, but P5 & P6 should know :)
Test your kids! List your answers in ratio for A, B, C.

Most important thing for planning a revision schedule is really to be F.L.E.X.I.B.L.E. for changes and not fret if the timetable is not followed to exact details.

Sharing how we prepare for the Prelims in 2 weeks time! If you have tips on your own revision, do share with me too! Link in bio :) #kidsrsimplelearns #psleprep #psle #notuition #30minrevision #studytips #academic #primaryschool #sgmum

We had a full morning and i didn't get much sleep yesterday, both of us were tired but am glad that we managed to squeeze in time for our #30minrevision.
We are tackling Situational Writing, copying answer as correction so that he knows what he is expected to write and score marks.

Proud moment - DinoBoy remembered he did correction on 2 of the exercise but can't remember where he did it nor find the notebook. Instead of bargaining with me he said "It's ok, I'll write again. No harm done for doing that." 👍 Well done son!

Each time before we start revision, Missy will bring in 2 cups of water, 1 for me and 1 for her :) Revision thus started sweetly ❤ Perhaps seeing the cups brings on more patience in us too 😄

Rewriting model answers from reliable assessment books is one good tactic to learn:
- short and precise answers
- the ability to answer with key concepts
- reinforce the way of answering Science qns

Although we have lengthen our revision which is made possible by my flexibility to work from home, I shall still hashtag #30minrevision for the ease to record & share our study tips :) #kidsrsimple #30minrevision #psleprep #mceducation #pslestudentworkshop #psleworkshop #revision #notuition #psle #pslemum @mceducation

Youth Day holiday for the boy, he did revision this afternoon, I sat down to mark them and explained where he gone wrong. Tackling Situational Writing and hoping he will brush it up fast!

Such simple logic and yet most are not ensuring that to happen. I think this applies to all subjects, doesn't it?

I am attending the Marshall Cavendish PSLE Science Parent Workshop today to learn how to help my Missy in Science. I am already full of anticipation because I got to know what she learnt from the MCE PSLE Student Workshop which are really, really excellent tips not taught in school!

1.5 mths to prelims.
For Science, it is really about learning the tactics and techniques of answering OEQs (open-ended qns). So here we are, Missy 12 is in a 2-day MCE PSLE SCIENCE Workshop to learn that she needs to aim for full 56/56 for MCQs and 34/44 for OEQs for A*. Sounds pretty achievable but well, A is good for us and A* will be a bonus.

The trainer taught Answering Skills for tackling OEQ that are good through Secondary and A levels!
- Comparison qns
- Explanation qns
- Line graphs
- Experimental considerations
- Scientific investigation qns
etc....
.
.
As well as to focus on Scientific expressions!

The PSLE student series has just ended and next round will be available Sep-Nov. If you are interested in the PSLE Parents Workshop, below are the dates and link:
EL-17/6, 29/7
Sci-24/6, 1/7
Math-8/7, 15/7
CL-22/7, 29/7

The "woes"of #FTWM or Full Time Working Mum but thanks to such technology, I can monitor and coach the boy on his #revision even if its minimal but at least we get something done through the day.

He has also learned to time himself in order to keep the time for doing work to 30mins with 30mins break time in between so that he will feel so burnt out or stressed up.

Yesterday we did #Chinese revision, it was so warm and we switched on the air con in the bedroom to study. It was so nice, chill and cozy that our #30minrevision becomes 1.5hours unknowingly 😂 I put a stop after realizing it, it will continue tonight.
