On Going Back to School
Sunday, June 03, 2007
It's back to school once again. For most schools it will be tomorrow, June 4, but in my kids' school (La Marea Academy in Dagupan City) it will be next week, June 13. Since La Marea always start the school year late, we also end it late.

Yes, it is really hard for the young ones to go back to school after a very enjoyable summer vacation. My 2 sons who are incoming Grade IV and Preparatory pupils feel a little bitin when school opening is mentioned. So that as early as possible I'm trying my best to bring back their biorhythm by convincing them to go to bed early so that they can get up early the next day. Doing some neurobic exercises everyday until "the day" is part of our routine for the remaining one week. This is to wake up their neurons making them more alert and ready for school.

One night before my 5-year old son went to bed, I asked him some Math questions. He was initially shocked and he told me that he already forgot how to perform the operation being asked. I told him it's okay and that we will do something about it next time. The following day after he had his breakfast it was he who approached me and asked me to review him. I can say that right now he is ready again for school.

My 9-year old son who is always first in his class for the past years is more than ready I think. He had equipped himself with the link system, the number-shape and the number-rhyme systems, etc. Being an MTAP (Math Teachers Association of the Philippines) contestant yearly, I hope he will do his best again this time. Good luck, kids!
