Ready for her pre-course in school

The niece is in grade 9 and they have their pre-course.  She is a bit confuse of what she wants to take on her pre-course.  She is asking my opinion of the best pre-course to take after showing to me the pre-courses offered at their school.  If I were to decide I would like her to take the baking course.  It would be a perfect choice because it will surely help her if ever she wants to put up her own business in the future.  But, I must let her pick the course she likes.  It is best if she takes the course she likes so she will be enjoying doing it and will surely do well on the things she likes.  I do appreciate the niece on approaching me, it makes me feel special. 

Anyways, the niece took the computer related pre-course.  It is a good choice still and I wish her the best of luck.  She will be needing laptop, printer for school assignment and homework.  I am giving to her my old laptop, she just has to reformat it because it was infected by virus.  I did not bring it back to the technician who formatted it first because I opted to buy new one so the niece can use my old laptop.  Hopefully it will be reformatted because her pre-course class starts. Good luck to my niece and enjoy your pre-course and your life at school with your friends.

Summer class about computers

The niece took the examination to avail of the summer class about computers two months ago.  Luckily, she passed the examination and she can avail of the summer class.  However, it is not for free but because she passed the exam she will get a discount.  I read the program and it is nice because it will really help the niece to be more knowledgeable in computers.  If ever she will take computer related course in college, it would be easier for her because of the background she will get is she grabbed the summer class offered.  If this class offered when I am still studying I will surely grab it.

The class has nice sessions.  The niece showed to us the amount we are going to pay upon registration and the amount we have to pay every session.  The discount is already deducted.  Even though it has discount, still the amount is a bit high and the SIL do not like it.  To her, instead of spending money for the said summer class, it is best to save the money for the next school year.  She has a point, anyways the niece is only 11 years old.  The offer is good but the timing is not.  I am pretty sure that more opportunities will come her way.  The niece is sad because she really wanted to take the summer class for computers.  I guess this is not the right time.

Showing her some techniques

Not like her older sister, my other niece is a bit slow in mathematics especially in division. She is having a hard time to solve problem in division in more than four digits. She is trying her best though. I have told her older sister to help her in solving division problems. However, instead of teaching her it is her older sister who will solve the problems and will give to her the answer with the solutions. What my niece did is wrong because she is not helping her sister at all. I want her to teach her little by little for her to know the steps so she can solve it alone.

I did not like what the older niece did, so even if I do not like I teach the niece instead and showing her some techniques to make the division in multiple number easy and fast. I am sharing the same techniques I used when I was still studying. I am not good in mathematics but math is one of my favorite subjects. It took us almost three hours solving their division assignments in mathematics. I give my very best and share some techniques to the niece too. I do hope that she will use it and practice more for her to appreciate the mathematics subject especially the division. Also, one of the reason I am teaching the teach my simple techniques is for her to not be dependent with the calculator for I know calculator won’t help her at all.

Wanting a shoes on their recognition

Three more weeks school year 2011 – 2012 will soon be concluded.  The kids are looking forward for their classes to ends because they are very much excited for summer.  Going to beach and play everyday is what the kids loves to do during summer.  That is how the nieces and nephew loves to do.  Just this afternoon, the niece talk to me and informing me that she will finished with honors.  I am so happy because this means she did well at school. I thought she will not make it because being  transferred is not easy.  It needs lots of adjustments. But the nieces did well despite she is new and she has friends now.  The shy niece that I used to know is no longer a shy one.

Anyways, buying her a present if she finished with honors is my idea.  My way of motivating her since she is a type one.  True enough, she was motivated doing well at school.  And now asking me to buy her a shoe to wear on their upcoming recognition day.  The shoes would be my present for her and her sister.  Gosh, I need to buy two pairs of shoes for the nieces.   Well, they deserved it because they made us proud by finishing with flying colors.  Good luck girls.
