He had his 3rd 听写 on Thursday.. I usually didn’t have much time to prepare him beforehand as he has Spelling on Wednesdays.. I usually prepare him 1 or 2 days in advanced..
Last Wednesday, when I was trying to practise with him, there were 4 phrases which he couldn’t remember.. He kept getting the tones wrong.. He looked very tired at about 9.30pm so I gave up and sent him to bed.. The next morning, I tried to remind him about the number to remember for each phrase so he could memorize as much as he could cos he couldn’t seem to be able to differentiate between the 4 tones.. I tested him in the car and reminded him to check and practise again before the Chinese lesson.. I even gave a shoutout of exasperation to my friends!
Got a pleasant surprise today! He managed to get 100/100!
I’m pretty proud of him for getting full marks this time! However, I am telling myself to prepare him for 听写 earlier in future.. And of cos, it’s ok to not get full marks for 听写..
As for his English Spelling, he has been doing well and getting full marks for his Spellings so far.. There were 2 unseen words for Spelling 3 and 4 and he only didn’t manage to spell ‘shed’ correctly.. Good job, son!!
