Memorizing Multiplication Table

Faith is memorizing multiplication table recently and we are so serious about it. The first 30 minutes everything is so smooth but later on, it gets harsh because she kept on forgetting, I already tried to help her but she kept on forgetting. The last time we had the Multiplication table memorize was from 2 to 7. I don’t want her to use her fingers to check for the answer, I want her to do it on her mind and that’s what we are practicing for a while now. But she can’t avoid it, she something doing it with her finger. But Faith even though she’s an ADHD, she listened. I always told her that what we are doing is for her own good. We continued and then right after we had a mock quiz. The real struggle starts there since I do it not in chronological order, she got lost again.

We went back to memorize what we stopped a while ago then went to mock quiz again. She is trying it hard and finally she was able to answer it all.

Her Dad knows the struggle; he recommended a game for Faith to answer. It is fun and innovative. We used it once and yeah Faith had fun, she does it easily because the answers are there, you’ll just have to drag it. We were doing it also after the mock quiz.

Yesterday, we were not able to do it because she only got her tooth extracted. Yeah our appointment was yesterday and I could be so much prouder because she was able to cope up her fear of having her damaged tooth extracted.

Walking Around The Village

I needed to fetch Faith early today so we can attend her Kumon but then when I got to school, they’re not done yet. The teacher told me that they are having a small birthday party. One of her classmates is celebrating her 9th birthday. We waited there for a long while since the snacks did not come yet. And I was sure we will not be able to get to her Kumon on time then I realized also that I wasn’t able to bring the Kumon worksheets. So it would be a waste of effort if we still go there.

I promised Faith that I will be walking her around the village before memorizing the Multiplication table. So when we arrived home, Faith changed her clothes right away then we walk around the village. She had a great time though especially when we dropped by at our friend’s house.

She had a blast today but right after she cried because of the Multiplication table. I asked her to memorize them but she tends to forget what number is next. We are still up to 6 though and I was planning for her to master the Multiplication table at least next month.

Busy Kiddos At School

My two kids are too busy at school nowadays.

My eldest daughter is one of the dancers at school and they were practicing really hard since they are going to perform it in NCCC Mall next month for their recital. And right after their dance practice, she would go to the other room to practice for their school band; she is the lead guitar so she needs to practice especially when she will be given a chance to have some time to strum the guitar in solo. Next week she will also be in training for MTAP, she is one of the representatives for the incoming Math Inter-school Competition.

My youngest daughter is also busy nowadays. It has been like two Saturdays already that she needs to go to school for her declamation practice. The declamation contest will be on February 7 in Colegio De San Ignacio and I am sure to watch it since I already filed a leave to watch her.

Too Busy Today, We Went To Magallanes Condominium

The road is very quiet, after the incident last night, everyone I guess just stayed home except us. The moment I went out from work, I have to fetch the kids to send them to Kumon. I supposed to meet them in Kumon, but I did not let them commute this time because of the incident last night. It is dangerous for them to ride a Jeepney.

I need to have the horn of my car repair so I send them to Kumon first; I leave them there for 30 minutes so I can look for someone to repair the horn of my car. Good thing the repair shop just near at Kumon, I was thinking to grocery shop but I just brush the idea.

After Kumon, we went to Magallanes Condominium. Mj needs to have training for her swimming since she will represent her school for DAPRISA. She needs to have some air so to survive during the competition.

While we are there, Faith meets a new baby friend, a 2 year old baby who is a resident there. They have so much fun, they were able to ride in a see saw, climbing and do the monkey bar. Faith is now behaving but she can’t stop talking.
