Monkey see monkey do. Alycia and Sherilyn are required to write a daily journal. This is part of my efforts to help them to improve their writing skill, both in BM and English. Every evening at around 7ish pm, reminders of “Have you written your daily journal?” resonates in the house, without fail. Alycia has to write her journal in BM and Sherilyn has to do hers in English.
Yesterday evening whilst I was busy washing up in the kitchen, Cass came running back and forth to me, asking me the spelling of some words. I did not ask her why she needed to ask me as she is very fond of writing cards for her grandparents and classmates.
After I’d finished my chores in the kitchen, I saw this written journal by Cass. She said “this is my daily journal”! After I praised her sky high, she told me that she also wanted to write a daily journal, just like her 2 sisters. Well, I shall see how disciplined she is…
Check out the exclamation mark and heart sign after the word ‘mum’. I broke out laughing seeing it. It shows that this rascal knows the usage of punctuation marks. She has definitely been listening whenever I teach her 2 sisters! ♥
