Reading Reward


She is savoring the reward for her diligence in reading. Her quota is a book per day. Mrs. Moon (kindergarten teacher) challenges her reading skills by giving her a book or two everyday. Thanks to Pizza Hut for supporting the reading programs of schools. 

What Makes You Say Wow


This is the theme of my children’s school’s reflection program for this year. Adrian joined the photography category. This is his first time to join a school contest that’s why we are excited about it. 

Ad likes to take pictures of people, places and objects. Many  times he makes himself busy with camera and toys. We noticed a picture of plastic cups used during a friend’s birthday party. He got nice shots of different perspectives so he decided that he will just reshoot the cupsto make a nicer photo. 

One day, when the materials were available, Ad excitedly took shots but didn’t get the good one. He had some difficulty balancing the tower that easily topples. When he breathes, walks or any vibration in the house, the tower falls immediately. That was a bad day for his him coz he didn’t get the output he wanted.

The next day, he continued to experiment on his cups. Working alone is best for him because he gets the concentration he needs. He was not destructed by his sister. His creative juice is being squeezed. The tower was ready for the shot but clicking on the camera, this came out.
