Darling daughter’s school is having a week-long campaign called Red Ribbon Week. It is a yearly nationwide campaign against illegal drugs, drug abuse, bullying, and violence. This is observed every month of October in the United States. This is to raise awareness to prevent these horrible deeds and habits. This teaches young individuals the importance of keeping their lives drug-free.
To support the engagement of the students in this campaign, they come up with Red Ribbon themes for this week at K’s school.
Monday – Wear Red as everyone gets RED-y for Red Ribbon Week, and get a red ribbon
Tuesday – Wear camo or camouflage, Fight Against Drugs and Bullies
Wednesday – Wear sunglasses, Our Future is too Bright for Drugs
Thursday – Wear red, white and blue, United We Stand against Drugs and Bullies
Friday – Dress like a super hero outfit or wear a cape, Power to be Drug-Free
The fight against illegal drugs, bullies, and violence is not only happening for a week. It should be for life.
Activity Sheets – Homework
Happy October. How’s everyone? Are you ready for cooler weather? I bet you are.
How’s school going? How’s your students? Mine has a homework. 🙂 Her first homework for the school year. It’s coloring the objects that start with the letter N. And it’s due tomorrow. My darling daughter said she’s having fun at school so far. As a Kindergartner, she’s new to some things in school especially homework. She’s enthusiastic in doing though. That’s good. I’d like her to be diligent in doing stuff like that. Learning is fun and shouldn’t be stressful to young children.
Though she is very interested in Science and Nature, I want her to learn a lot in Mathematics and Writing.
Darling K’s first day of school. Kindergarten.
Hi, everyone! It’s back to school already. How’s your summer vacation? Did your children enjoyed their summer relaxations? Where did ya’ll go?
My darling daughter is growing fast that I am almost not aware that she will be in Kindergarten this year. Oh how I adore her being so sweet and smart. Sometimes, but not very often, she is testing the length of my patience. Like what happened during our vacation in the Philippines two months ago.
My niece and nephew enjoying a night’s swim.
It was a very fine evening at the Sabin Resort Hotel. My siblings and their kids were with us spending the weekend to swim and have fun since it’s summer vacation and the school is out. My niece and nephews were swimming that night. K saw them in the pool and she asked me that she wanted to join them. I said no. Because as you know, she already get in the pool around 4:00 P.M. and I told her that if she go swim, she’s not gonna go night swimming with her cousins after dinner. I asked her twice if she really want to go ahead and swim without her cousins. She said yes. Okay. So I let her because she insisted, and she agreed she won’t get in the pool again after dinner.
When she’s done swimming, we had dinner with the family at the resort’s restaurant. After about an hour, my niece and nephews went ahead and swim in the pool. K saw them having lots of fun – splashing and chasing each other. But kids are kids, you know. K was jealous. She came to me and asked if she can go in the swimming pool and join her cousins. “See. They’re having lots of fun,” she said. I reminded her about our agreement. I told her that we talked about that earlier. Calmly, I recalled everything to her. But of course, K gave me that sweet-begging-kind of look on her face. It was precious but I have to be firm.
She really wanted to go in the pool.
She said, “I will just sit down on the edge of the pool and feel the water on my feet.”
I said, “Not even that one.”
See our kids sometimes play tricks on us. If we give in, we lose. They will think that we don’t have one word. We have to be firm on what we agreed on. It is part of good discipline.
I am glad that my daughter didn’t fuss on that. She knew her boundaries there. To take her attention away from the swimming cousins, I suggested we leave the pool and take a walk towards the seawall. And guess what, we found a treasure. A hair tie. 🙂
Blue hair tie. Finders keepers. 🙂
K: “Hello, what’s your name?”
M: “Uhm, you don’t ask the customer’s name, honey. You’ll greet them first. You’ll say, how are you today?”
K: “Oh. How are you today, ma’m?”
M: “Very well thank you. How about you?”
K: “I’m good, thank you.”
M: “Then you’ll say, what would you like to drink?- Then put the menu in front of the customer on the table.”
K” “What would like to drink? Ah, we don’t have a menu because this is a fancy restaurant. I memorize all the orders.”
Darling daughter and I were playing restaurant last night. She was the server and I was the customer. I like it when she uses her imagination. It helps her develop good judgement, I think. It’s always fun playing with kids, you know. You will learn lots of things with them that sometimes you’ll get speechless. 🙂
