School Work

Today my daughter has school work to do. She has to write a few lines of three alphabet words. This was the most school work that she has to do. 'Leg', 'Peg', 'Tea', Wed','Fed' and etc.

She only can complete one and a half page in one time. She was easily distracted especially by her little brother and TV. (what do you expect from a 4 year old kid). I need to constantly remind and monitor her to write her alphabet one word at the time.

Switch off all distraction when your children is finishing up their school work or doing some reading. I let the brother sit on the table with his own pencil and paper so he will not directly distract his sister.

The education system and standard has really evolved since our three decades of childhood. Now days 4 year old's are learning how to read three letter words. Recognizing alphabet A to Z and phonics sound were taught when she was only 3 years old.

Many friend of mine with young children also ask about when is the right time to start playschool education. Will three year old be too early?


  1. Sweet Kyle ... It's nice for Kyle to observe his sister doing her homework.

  2. Observed? i think he is trying to distract his sister.....haha
