School days…

September 5, 2010

Erika 真的比媽媽更棒, 上學沒有哭,沒有嚷著要媽媽. 我真的很感恩她這麼的成熟呢. 今天已經是她上學的第三天.

Erika is doing much better than her mom, she doesn’t cry when goes to school!

It’s so grateful that she can be this mature.

第一天上學的情況:

老師說她的午睡只睡了十五分鐘,可能是心情太興奮,或者很不習慣和別的小朋友一起睡,所以不想午睡.

老師又說她不肯吃菜,其實我們早知道她有這樣的問題,在家裡都不吃,在學校也不肯吃.她都是挺硬頸的! 我只有希望她在未來的日子能夠試多一點新的食物.

First day of school:

Teacher said that she didn’t want to nap, and could only sleep for 15 mins in the sleeping session. Poor her, she cried after waking up, because she actually didn’t have enough sleep. I think she was too excited in the 1st day of school, and didn’t have the mood to sleep at the beginning.  The teacher also said that she didn’t want to eat veggie, oh well, I hope she can try more in the short future. As Veggies are really good for our bodies!

(我們可以乘坐巴士到學校門前,只是兩個站便到達了,真方便.just $2 !!)

We can take a bus with only $2 !! only two stops away from our home.🙂

第二天:

Erika自己告訴我她弄濕了床了. 我說:不打緊,最緊要是下一次最好在睡前去洗手間,那樣,在午睡的時候弄濕床子的機會便微一點. 她說:!

Second day of school (Sep 3, 2010)

Eriak said that she wet her bed today. I said,’it’s ok, next time, may be you can go to washroom before napping, then, the chance of wetting the bed will be smaller.”

She replied,’ ok.’

Erika又告訴我:今天我沒有杯子用? (別人拿錯了她的杯子)

還有,我今天哭了,(我問:為甚麼?) 因為我不想喝暖奶’.

這又是我們頭痛的問題,她一向都是不喜歡喝熱或暖的飲料, 最好是冷的. 因為她在加拿大已經習慣了喝冷的,或者是室溫的. 她寧願不喝.

你說,做媽媽的我一定很擔心她會缺水了!我告訴她,若果奶或水太暖,你可以待一會兒才喝,但不可以不喝哦. 她當天回家尿尿的時候說有點痛,我就知道她當天沒有喝夠水了. 真可憐!

Erika also told me that she couldn’t find  her cup in the classroom. (Every student has a cup and labelled with their ‘animal’ character, she is a bunny in the class. ) Probably one of the students took her cup by mistake. Then she said that she cried because she didn’t want to drink the “WARM” milk.

This is what I am worrying recently, she doesn’t like warm fluid, she only loves to drink cold milk, water, juice. And she never take warm fluid. However, in the school, they only offer warm drinks, so, she has to get used to it, or wait until the milk/water cool down.  But, I already warned her that she must take some fluid , no matter what!  Because on Friday , she had little pain while peeing, so, I guess she was a bit dehydrated that day. Luckily, she didn’t have any more pain on Sat, because I pushed her to drink lots and lots of water/juice starting on Friday night… hahaha

Erika還有告訴我: 我看到有一個小朋友在課室的地下小便呢!

! 我只好對她說,’若果你想去尿尿,怎辦?’,她說:”要上廁所,不可以在地上!” 我說,’對啦!’

Erika loves sharing what she saw in school, she then told me that she saw a girl pee on the floor in the classroom. I told her not to do that , and shall go to the washroom. Just wanted to tell her that that little girl may be too young or could not hold the pee, so, she pee on the floor.

老師給了我一個短訊(她們都很喜歡用這個方式和家長溝通的.) 告訴我Erika 們的上學情況如下:

鑫妍家長:

您好! 鑫妍是個非常可愛的寶貝,在幼兒園的表現非常棒哦!聽指令、守規則、懂禮貌,喜歡和願意在同伴面前表現自己,大方自信的和老師交談,特別喜歡玩娃娃家的玩具,中午入睡比較遲,所以起床晚,希望在家幫助她調整作息時間,以便更好的適應幼兒園生活,讓我們家園攜手,為寶貝的進步而勞力吧!

The Teacher sent me a SMS after the end of the week, here is her comments on Erika:

“Erika’s mom,

Hi, Erika is a very lovely girl, and she is doing very well in school! Obeying the rules, listen to the teachers, polite, and she is not shy in front of others, willing to talk with teachers directly, and loves to play the kitchen, dolls area in the class. However, she tended to sleep late during the nap time, and woke up late as well, so, it may be a good idea for you to help adjusting her resting time at home, so that she will be easier to manage the schedule in school. Let’s work well together for Erika.😀

Ms Zhang. “

希望Erika可以快一點適應吧. 我每天晚上都有和她一起禱告,讀聖經(說聖經故事),她都很喜歡的.

有時候,她會突然問我,’以撒做了甚麼事哦?” 我有點驚訝她可以這麼快便記得聖經的人物名字,在我來說,那些名字一點也不容易記哦! 這個年紀雖小,但腦袋的記憶體可以超大超快的哦!

I do hope Erika can get used to the school life well too.

Now, I tell bible stories and pray with Erika every night before sleep.

She loves this a lot, and sometimes, she will suddenly asked me “what did Issac do to?” You know , it’s not easy to remember the names of the Bible’s characters, I always found them hard to memorize, but she can do that!  We can’t really imagine how “BIG” their BRAIN is !!

最後還有一段小插曲:

上星期四和五早上都有個小朋友為了一件小事而哭了好一陣子.

星期五的早上有以下的對話:

她不想穿校服,說一定要穿裙子. 我告訴她,上學的時候,每一個小孩子都要穿校服的哦.

她說:校服不美, 我的裙子美,我要穿….  ; 我說: 你的裙子真的很美,倒不如我們把它放在書包裡, 中午過後,老師會為你們換衣服,那時候,你便可以告訴老師你想穿這條裙子哦!

她說:真的嗎?真的會換嗎?

我說:真的,老師說的.

到了放學的時間,因為是星期五的關係,家長可以親臨課室接放學,看看她們上課的情況. 我看到她多麼的開心,和外籍老師玩得很開心. 身上亦穿上她愛的裙子.

老師沒有說謊,媽媽也沒有.(我也真的放下心頭大石,因為,小孩子就是很緊張這些嘛!)

A little scene last week:

Last Thu and Friday mornings, Erika did cry before going to school.

Just because she didn’t want to wear the school uniform, she found that it’s not pretty and she wanted to wear skirt/ dress instead. I told her that we have to wear uniform, because we are students in the school. Everyone wears the same uniform to school.

She kept crying and saw if I can make her to wear dress. However, she failed, and finally wore the uniform to school.

Actually, I asked the teacher, since they only gave us one set of uniform, (there will be more coming, but not yet received) what if the uniform wasn’t dry (after washing) enough for wearing next day? The teacher replied that the students can wear their own clothes if the uniform is not ready.

And one more thing is: the students will get changed after the morning session, because they all sweat a lot after exercising, and some will wet the beds and clothes after napping , so they can change their own clothes afterwards.  I told Erika that she will have a chance to wear skirt after the morning session. She nodded the head and felt ok to wear the uniform.

(Mr. Mingis is their foreign teacher , a Canadian teacher. He is very funny and active, Erika loves him a lot.)

我知道女兒太愛穿裙子,所以,我在星期五那天花了兩個多小時親手做了一條短裙給她.

布料是麻布帶點閃亮,是在加拿大的時候買,終於大派用場了.

我自己都頗滿意完成品,最重要的是, 女兒也喜歡,晚上洗澡後嚷著要試穿裙子,頭髮未乾便叫我替她拍照!哈哈!

I know that Erika loves skirts, and I spent 2.5 hours on sewing a skirt for her on Friday.  This skirt is made with linen fabric that I bought in Canada, I Love it so much because it’s very shiny. Of course, my daughter Erika loves it, she wears it at once after the shower at night.  She even asked me to take a picture for her with her wet hair… hahhaa

What a lovely story! I think the preschool program you have running around for her in the past few months is making everything worth it! That’s why she got used to the environment of school so quickly. It’s all of your efforts, Lillian!

I think she’s doing great….all those are minor issues and I am sure she will get used to them, or adapt to the enviornment.

Very good school she’s going to – hope she will grow up as a healthy, cheerful, bright kid!

Love,
angel

Thank you, Angel.
I found your message very encouraging, at least, I know that what I did in past worth is.🙂
You are right, those problems that Erika’s facing are very minor, and surely they can be improved in the future.
I am glad that she is happy so far.🙂

TOday, she didn’t wear uniform, because the weather is too humid and isn’t dry enough for wearing. The school only gave them one set of uniform, so, during this period of time, she can wear what she wants until she gets all those sets of uniform.🙂
