School Girls

These are our school girls after their summer classes, taking their afternoon nap.

So far we have been successful with regards to their daily routine. TV/cartoon time has been limited to an hour a day which is a significant improvement than before they went schooling.

7-7:30 Wake up
8:00 Eat breakfast
8:30 Bath time
9:00-11:00 Summer school
11:30 Lunch
12:30 Review of today's lesson
1:00 Cartoon Time
2:00 Nap time
4:00 Snacks and indoor activities (play toys, puzzles, building blocks, etc)
5:00 Outdoor activities (biking, playing with neighbor kids)
6:00 Study for tomorrow's lesson
7:00 Free time (sing, play, read books, coloring books, etc)
8:00 Dinner
9:00 Prepare for bedtime
10:00 Sleep

And so far, both girls are behaving well in school, although Gabbie is, at her age, still very playful. But among the 3-yr olds in their summer class, Gabbie is the only one who never needed a companion inside the classroom since day one, and unlike most of her classmates, she doesn't cry or throw tantrums. She even finishes her snacks and she has improved a lot in terms of attention, focus and following the routine, according to the teachers. We just need to practice her coloring skills and grip because when she writes, its almost invisible especially when she uses a pencil.

galing naman ni gabbie :)

pag SAHM, ganyan kaya lahat ng kids? tingin mo? si kenkoy, di rin umiyak sa preschool. si kenkoy II, in jan 2012 mag-start na din. sana wala ring separation anxiety.
