His mom went to her morning shift in the Operating Room today with her Nursing students and will be out by 2PM. I was left to accompany our son, Gabby to his preschool to attend to a brief parent-teacher-meeting and claim his report card. And to my surprise, their teacher’s aide greeted us at the school’s gate, “Congratulations po, Top 2 si Gabby!”
Wow! Even it was so anticlimactic, certainly I cannot complain. It was ecstatic to hear those words so early in the morning!
Gabby and I sat in his room with other parents and kids. We shortly waited for our turn and when it came, the teacher prepared and handed me this…
Sweet! It was only last November when Gabby made it to SIXTH PLACE ON SECOND QUARTER out of 30 Kindergarten students in his class and now he sky rocketed to SECOND HONORS! I cannot help but to have PPS (read: Proud Parent Syndrome) again.
I heard from his teacher while talking to other parents that the basic problem of the previous members of the honors list (excluding Gabby) was failure to follow exam directions. It really pays to follow rules. When it’s asked to encircle, you never underline.
Inspite of difficult and advanced preschool curriculum, Tina and I are proud that Gabby is picking up something from his 4-hour-a-day-schooling. I will make a post of what kids of his generation study in school soon.
The teacher commented that Gabby was the only one in the class who knew one particular VERB (remember your action words?) and its SYNONYM.
Teacher : “Daddy, si Gabby lang po ang may alam ng synonym ng HUNGRY! What’s your answer Gabby?”
My son : “STARVING!”
Daddy Gelo : (note to self : You’re son’s really a foodie at a young age!)
