test, test, this is a test..

okay, friday night we had the big test for the kiddies. Naz had prepared some questions based on what we had done for the past six weeks. what started off as a serious 'exam like' thing became a more relax session with the kids being able to ask for guidance from the abang and the kakaks.

what was the answer again?

some of the boys did pretty well, hehe full marks and all. but some made careless mistakes here and there. hopefully they will improve as time progresses

checking the answers..

after the test we had a sorta like review of how the kids felt about the whole program. the favourite word for the night is 'gembira'. hehe well we were all glad to be of some help.

cake for the kiddies..

anyways its off to the movies on sunday.

how do you describe a...

... monkey? what colour is a monkey? how many hands and legs does a monkey have? what does a monkey like to eat? does a monkey have a short or long tail?

this was what we did with adik2 ilham last night.. Keena prepared some words on animals and games i.e. monkey, elephant, turtle etc and badminton, rugby, basketball etc and we asked adik2 to describe these animals/games in their own words.

at first i wrote the words on the board and keena started drawing.. after a complete picture of a girrafe, we kinda switched roles ;op hehehe.. but even after switching roles with keena, somehow we still got the kids confused - zafiq said my monkey had a beak!! hahahah (and i thought it looked more like homer simpson than a 'bird' with a 'beak'..) heheheh oh well - maybe kakak2 & abang2 should go for drawing classes huh?

i was happy to see the adik2 holding a dictionary each to themselves.. a few of them were 'racing' with each other, looking for the words to describe these animals/games so that they can tell us the answers!! i hope they will make it a habit to refer to dictionaries whenever they're stuck on a word :o)

Keena also prepared some homework for them to do during the holidays - and knowing the boys, if the work is from Kak Keena, mestilah buat punya!! hehe at least there's a motivation there for the boys ;o) well done Keena for the preps!! :o)

sing song sing along..

We had our last IEP session before the school break last friday. At first we wanted to do some sort of recap of last week's story telling bit, but it turned out that most of the kids conveniently forgot to their assignment. After a stern (not la that stern i think, i dunno i 'conveniently' arrived a bit late) telling off by kak sheri the kids were all intent in making up for it in this week's session.

Eyeda started off by jotting the lyrics to this one song on the whiteboard. The song was quite the hit back then in the Kindergarden Hot 100 list. Its the 'little teapot' song. Anyways, we started with just a simple reading of the lyrics, making sure the kids were able to understand the whole thing.

Then we decided to split the kids into two groups. One group, Sharkawi and the Zebras, and the other one, The Best Boys. Then we had a little Rumah Ilham Idol showdown with the groups singing and showing off their moves.

At the end of the day, the judges were united in picking Sharkawi and The Zebras as the winner.

After that the roles were reversed when we had the abangs and the kakaks facilitators to show off their singing skills.

The kakaks won this showdown hands down.
