PlayChinese by Creative

We are truly living in a digital age.
Every kids I know could operate the iphone or the ipad effectively,
without much supervision.

We were somehow skeptical about giving our our kids such state of the art gadget.
I've personally witness how disconnected kids can be
when they are addicted to devices like that.

 But, when I came across PlayChinese by Creative 
I was totally sold upon the idea of getting a tablet device for the kids.

The kids would be the best social proof of this product.
Check out the videos below.

Ask and you shall Receive, Plead and you shall Get...... *pun intended*

Thank you God.
Thank you for hearing a desperate mother's plead.

I swear this IS the BEST news for the week!
Hiroshi has found himself a school
and no stressful balloting is required!

Like in my earlier posting,
I said that the number of applicants exceeded the number of seats available
by 3 applicants.
85 applicants vs 82 seats.
So I expected the school to proceed on with balloting.
But however, then number of pupils
staying within 1km or between 1-2km is 准准 82.
So the rest that are outside 2km is rejected.

I am sure Hiroshi would be equally as excited 
to know that he has gotten into Horizon Primary School,
since several of his best buddies would also be attending the same school.

Thank you God.
Thank You.
Thank You.
Thank You.

Learning Thru Fun.....

I used to tear my hair apart when teaching Hiroshi spelling.
I am sure many other parents are equally flabbergast, 
since we are not professional educators.

I've just realised that learning thru play is the best way to learn.
Conventional write and write and write doesn't seems to get into him.
When we play little word games like the one shown in the video,
he seems to be able to grasp the word instantly.

He has his spelling test to proof his results.
*beaming proudly*

I am glad to say that I no longer have to scream at Hiroshi to get his spelling done.
He would gladly come to me since spelling time is also game time!

We are finally looking forward to our next spelling test!

Hugely Disappointed about Balloting Results.....

I can't tell you how disappointed we are right now.
We didn't manage to get Hiroshi into our school of choice through balloting.

Now it is down to Phrase 2C supplementary.

Everything happens for a reason.

For now, 
I can only put my faith in God 
that he has better plans for Hiroshi.
