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?

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 😂

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.

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!

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!

Weekend does not mean we slack in our revision, we pack in MORE though we stick to our #30minrevision routine.

I realized that learning does not need to be long hours, short time with short breaks in between are better and yield better results.

We were learning Chinese compo verbs and words and came across this word - 意义。I explained to him "this word's meaning is meaning." He immediately looked at me, puzzled. We both look at each other and I bursted out laughing, realizing what a confusion I had given him. Ok, note to self - phrase my words carefully and in proper sentence 😜

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!

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.

《剪报》 Newspaper cutting for the kids. This is a 5min activity per day for reading Chinese articles while I am at work. I skim through 大拇指 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!

Doing blocks of #30minrevision since 11am, though only finished 1 short Chinese cloze passage but it waa fruitful. I try to keep it relaxed and less stressful, we both got through without flaring of temper.

Now, here's today's joke during revision. DinoBoy keeps mispronouncing the word 某 or certain, he kept reading it as mò instead of mǒu. I got so fed up that I said " its mǒu, M O U not M O!" He looked at me, giggled and said "MOU? Ministry of Urination?" 😖😖😖😖😖😖😖 #learnchinese #dinomama #startingprimaryschool #revisiontime #studysmart #sporemombloggers #mumblogger #sgmumblogger #sgblogger #blogger #sgparentblogger #parentblogger

It's a humid afternoon but we still have to do our #30minrevision. Past couple of days he did the assessments I assigned to him to do during the day but we didn't have time to go through it till today. So the time was spent marking the work and doing corrections. Still productive 😉

I like Little Red Dot. It is a good start for kids to start reading newspaper. I need to read it too so that I can highlight some interesting reads like this one to the kids. Greek Odyssey. I never knew ACHILLES' HEEL came from this story!
.
~In greek legends, Thetis, mothet of warrior Achilles, was told that her son would die at a young age, thus she dipped him in the River Styx, which is located in the underworld. This act gave Achilled invincibility, however as she held him by the heel, that part of the body was not protected. Many years later, he died in a battle when a poisioned arrow hit him in the heel.~

When the kids are watching a movie, I find myself at a loss of what to do with the quiet time. Every night is on our #30minrevision and interaction with them and tonight's a break. Now, I must pinch myself that it is real that I can read a book at 8pm on a weekday! 😂
