We have all been hearing and reading about how our current young generation lack knowledge because they do not read. Abedeen students have reading time. There are times they are taken to the library to do some reading. During these times, they are allowed to ask their teacher for meaning, pronunciation, etc. At other times, the teacher would read them stories. It is part of our effort to create a future generation of leaders who read.
Parents love sending their children all the way to their classroom. This is taken as an opportunity for us to have quick chats with the parents, to hear what they have to say about their children’s progress. Some, leave us in tears.
‘Teacher! I know how to change my clothes!!!!!’
Yes, with multiple exclamation marks because this student was ecstatic that she had mastered a new skill: Dressing up on her own.
The first 2 weeks was a struggle for her. Granted, as a 7 year old, mom and dad would always help her get dressed up. So when she had to get herself changed from school clothes to PE clothes, vice versa, she got very frustrated, and would end up crying to vent her frustrations out.
