Showing her some techniques

Not like her older sister, my other niece is a bit slow in mathematics especially in division. She is having a hard time to solve problem in division in more than four digits. She is trying her best though. I have told her older sister to help her in solving division problems. However, instead of teaching her it is her older sister who will solve the problems and will give to her the answer with the solutions. What my niece did is wrong because she is not helping her sister at all. I want her to teach her little by little for her to know the steps so she can solve it alone.

I did not like what the older niece did, so even if I do not like I teach the niece instead and showing her some techniques to make the division in multiple number easy and fast. I am sharing the same techniques I used when I was still studying. I am not good in mathematics but math is one of my favorite subjects. It took us almost three hours solving their division assignments in mathematics. I give my very best and share some techniques to the niece too. I do hope that she will use it and practice more for her to appreciate the mathematics subject especially the division. Also, one of the reason I am teaching the teach my simple techniques is for her to not be dependent with the calculator for I know calculator won’t help her at all.

Wanting a shoes on their recognition

Three more weeks school year 2011 – 2012 will soon be concluded.  The kids are looking forward for their classes to ends because they are very much excited for summer.  Going to beach and play everyday is what the kids loves to do during summer.  That is how the nieces and nephew loves to do.  Just this afternoon, the niece talk to me and informing me that she will finished with honors.  I am so happy because this means she did well at school. I thought she will not make it because being  transferred is not easy.  It needs lots of adjustments. But the nieces did well despite she is new and she has friends now.  The shy niece that I used to know is no longer a shy one.

Anyways, buying her a present if she finished with honors is my idea.  My way of motivating her since she is a type one.  True enough, she was motivated doing well at school.  And now asking me to buy her a shoe to wear on their upcoming recognition day.  The shoes would be my present for her and her sister.  Gosh, I need to buy two pairs of shoes for the nieces.   Well, they deserved it because they made us proud by finishing with flying colors.  Good luck girls.

Rent your textbooks and save money

Apart from tuition and lodging, textbooks are one of the bigger expenses that face college students. It is often difficult to rationalize spending a huge amount of money for books that you will use for only one semester and then possibly never open again. Campus Book Rentals offers a solution to high textbook prices and puts money back into your wallet. Instead of buying your college textbooks, you can simply rent them for the needed time period whether it is a semester, a quarter or a summer-at a fraction of the price. After ordering, the books are delivered to your doorstep within 7-14 business days or even faster with expedited shipping. Shipping is free both ways so you don’t have to worry about postal charges-the entire experience is as painless as possible. Even though the book is a rental you can treat it as your very own and highlight sections that are important to you. If for any reason you need to retake the class you can re-rent your book for 30% less than the original rental price-which still saves a lot of money over purchasing. Since Campus Book Rentals knows that you may just fall in love with your James Stewart Calculus book and want to keep it forever, they offer the option to buy your book from them by paying the difference from the rental price and the full value of the book-it’s a win-win. Save money on textbooks and put it where it really matters-like your restocking your fridge.

First day of school

After the two weeks holiday vacation, the kids will be going back to school today.  They are still in a vacation mood, but nothing they can do but to wake up early and getting ready for school.    Smiley   I can see the faces of my two nieces that they do not want to go to school today however, they should because they have lots of things to do in preparation for their upcoming third grading exam.  Their movement is in slow-mo for they are not in the mood yet.  I remember when I was their age, I do not want to go back to school right away after the vacation and the sister will always yell at me. Smiley

The house is so quiet after the kids left for school.  The ambiance that I do love  for I can take some rest and have some time for myself.  The house is so noisy and messy when kids are around.  I am so glad that they go back to school today.  Less stress and not so tiring day for me.  I will get enough sleep and have a long nap to regain the energy I have lost preparing for the holiday celebration and the birthday celebration.   Time to rest now.  Happy New Year Everyone! Smiley

Washing our Hands

As a teacher I always tell my students about good manners and etiquette. I won’t forget nor miss about telling them to wash their hands before eating their foods. Every time we will have our snacks, we always go there all together and fall in line in washing our hands. At the same time we will sing all together.

“This is the way, we wash our hands, wash our hands, wash our hands” (2x) Early in the morning…. “

My little bumblebee love it and they always have fun in doing it. Since they are having fun in washing their hands, they really won’t forget to wash their hands before eating their foods or before having snacks. Then they would let their Hand Dryer.

Upon looking, how they are enjoy doing it. It made me smile and feel so thankful that I teach them the right way. I considered it a big achievement every time I share my knowledge with my little bubble bees. It is also the same, once I saw how happy their parents are, to see how their little kiddos getting improve and got some much friends to socialize. I just could not but smile at the same time.  We’ve just started and we have a long way to go.
