Khayla after 10 months at an Islamic Montessori

Alhamdulillah it has been 10 months since Khayla started attending an Islamic Montessori. Click here to read my previous update on this. :)

So, apart from her so-called toddler regression (which is under control now that Mr. Sunshine is sending her to school), I can say that she has been doing pretty good at school.

She tries to speak in English, and would sometimes ‘order’ me to do so too if I ask her to pass me something. “Saya tak nak bagi if Mummy tak cakap English and cakap ‘please’.”
Pffft, over tau ! Hehe.

She is trying to form more complex sentences and usually direct translates from Malay, like for example, “I want to go shop eat.”
I will praise her for trying but at the same time correct her. :)

She has also started to learn to read in English.
She is currently on book 3 of the Ladybird Read With Me series. Hers is the Tom and Kate version, I used to read about Peter and Jane when I was small. Ahh, the memories !

We try to read to her before she goes to bed every night.

The Read with Me series which Khayla has been reading.

Alhamdulillah.

There are also swimming classes which Khayla attends once a week but I think she’s having mixed feelings about them. Two weeks ago, she actually told her teacher that her head hurts so she can’t swim.
(Of course Mr. Sunshine and I have reminded her that it is not good to pretend to be in pain for any reason at all.)

Lately, she has been showing interest in solat. She would keep telling me that she “nak solat,” and keeps asking me if it’s time to pray already. She memorizes the basics that need to be recited during prayers because she has learnt in at school during her Solat Dhuha sessions. She obviously has lots to pick up but she’s only four, so inshaAllah, in due time. :)

Khayla and her classmates are currently busy preparing for their annual school concert day next month. How exciting !! Looking forward to attend it (before or after I pop ! haha), InshaAllah.

Mr Sunshine and I have already paid the booking fee for next year’s session at the same kindergarten, so that just goes to show that we are satisfied with Khayla’s progress ! Yayyyyy ! Alhamdulillah. :)

    i think it’s always good to maybe have one parent speak in only one language to the kid so for example, your mr. sunshine speaks only malay with her and you speak only english with her. that way she’ll get all the practise she needs/wants. heh. just a thought anyway because that’s what i’d do in future with my kids kot.
