He writes :D

After the HFMD and H1N1 back-to-back episode, I’ve decided to stop Ethan from school –  at least temporarily until he is stronger. That also means that I have to stop teaching to be home with him, HORROR! So it’s been more than a month now he is at home with me. We are both bored to the bone :D
We will do an art work in the morning and have a craft session in the evening. If the weather is nice, we get to go to the playground. If not, we will sit and stare at each other and occasionally look at the four walls :P
The other day I was at the bookstore looking for books for my home tuition kids. Ethan got excited and chose his own book. 
Rewards Super Dino English – Nursery level
He loves this book very much. Each time my students are having their lesson, he’ll sit with them and go through this book. I tell you, I can teach him to read, art and craft but I never teach him to write! I find it so…… troublesome. I always tell myself that I will teach him to write ONE day, when he is older.

Today, he did this…

and this.. see how he chuckled..
I guessed he learnt that by observing my students? :D Thank goodness for the students in my house or else Ethan and I lagi bored!
I asked him if he wants to go back to school, he said NO! @_@

    home schooling is not a bad idea too..

  • //

    Clever boy. He wrote it himself without you teaching him? So pandai one.

  • //

    BORED??? When you're my age…and your children have grown and gone…then you tell me about getting bored! What I would give for my girl to be a child again so I could take care of her again, play with her again, do everything again…. Sobs!!!

  • //

    Awww…o cute. he is one smart kiddo aye. :p

  • //

    Merryn, u might wanna homeschool your boy for the time being? Now more and more mothers are doing this and it has becoming a trend!

  • //

    hehe cool! at least ethan can catch up ma. eh dnt worry ler, kids very fast learn 1. xD

  • //

    clever boy!!!!!!ya kids learn very quickly from their peers ;)

  • //

    children copy others easily..good one here.

  • //

    home is where the kids start to learn…this is a good preparation for ethan if he finally decided to go to school…

  • //

    My little brother is also having a hard time to write…he knows how to write his name but other than that… no more.. LOLhe knows how to write the alphabet too but don't know how to spell a word….

  • //

    have a great day and happy blogging

  • //

    He learned to write :) That's good!

  • //

    well done ethan!!! he learns all by himself!

  • //

    Smart boy Ethan!! :)

  • //

    Ethan can hold his pencil so well and write too… WELL DONE!I am still trying to get my ziyi to write her first ABC…. no luck so far.

  • //

    How sweet~! I think he won't have any problem with the writing since he has pretty good hand and eyes coordination!^-^Have a great day!p/s: Ahem~! Why was he writing on the floor?? o.O

  • //

    Since you are available at home, it is a great idea to teach Ethan at home rather than sending him to school. He can be free from those viral infections. hehe….And save $$$$ too.

  • //

    special attention by the teacher herself is the best.. how about having a sibling for ethan.. then both of u will not be bored!! :p

  • //

    Keep going you are on track..take care.

  • //

    Kids nowadays are very observant as compared to 'our' time, ok..maybe my time and they actually can learn by seeing what other people is doing. Anyway, must be clever also lah.

  • //

    Is Ethan better now?

  • //

    finally, his wisdom has grown.

  • //

    Ethan's it cute…I like word he said "i dunno" sound like little donald ducks!! Cute!! (no offense)He is showing his pro in writing.. I love the way he writes… Ethan boy jia you =D

  • //

    He is so clever now, can read n write! Good Job Ethan !

  • //

    Well done, Ethan! He's learning a lot by observing ur students. U've created a vy good n conducive learning environment for him.

  • //

    oh i didn't know you have stopped ethan from going to school :) good idea too.

  • //

    I reckon homeschooling will make him a genius!

  • //

    home schooling, well good idea kua. he is a smarty pants so sure can kautim.

  • //

    he's already caught the worst.. H1N1 and HFMD.. did doctor said chances of recurrence almost NIL ?

  • //

    coffiesncookies – H1N1 is immune as long as the virus doesnt mutate but HFMD is not :( so chances of getting it is as much as those who have not got it before.. sigh..

  • //

    Haha! After long time didn't go to school, Ethan sure does not want to go to school. I also don't want – holidays are better than schooling! LOL!

  • //

    So envy you Merryn. You need not to teach Ethan to write but he knows how to write by himself. He is clever and very talented!
