Evan has been bringing back homework in his 'homework pouch' from school. Initially it was tough getting him to finish his homework. He couldnt grip his pencil well and was very slow in writing. That really made me lose my cool.
Now it's much easier to get him to finish his homework. Most importantly he enjoys what he is doing and is not forced into it.

We bought a Kumon workpad for Evan some time back : Let's Color for ages 2+. The workpad was very easy to use and made coloring so interesting and fun. After he completed the workpad we decided to buy more at the recent MPH sale where members receive 20% off.
So now he's into More Let's Color, Let's Fold, Let's Cut, Let's Sticker & Paste and Tracing. He enjoys doing the fun activities and it helps him practice his coloring, writing, folding & cutting skills. Hopefully this will help him in his homework at home and at school....

Talking about school..... Teacher Esther has been reporting to me that Evan is very playful in school (am not surprised!). The other day his schoolbag was confiscated for a day because he used it swing around and bumped into his schoolmates. He was upset and kept on asking for his ladybug bag. The next day he apologised to his teacher and got the bag back. Soon after that he forgot that he was not supposed to play around with his bag and had to be reminded again not to repeat the offence.
I hope he doesnt stress out his teachers in school too much! We at home are also having a tough time repeating things again and again..... cos only after MUCH repeating he will eventually remember....
