Scholastic’s Geronimo Stilton Academy Pawbooks Trade Launch

Geronimo Stilton Academy Pawbooks are workbook series based on the Geronimo Stilton title book; it aims to provide educators and parents a fun way to enrich young minds to become mouse-ter-ful learners. These pawbooks makes it easy for parents like me to support my child with learning supplements to influence her to expand her vocabulary through the love of reading and composing her own storyboard. Looking through the pages I noticed the similarity of school tasks they are at the moment covering, which I thought will boost her learning capability and study habits by accessing other topic exercises like that from the Pawbooks. Prior to that she often goes home with a borrowed Geronimo Stilton/Thea Stilton/Creepela Von Cacklefur book from her school’s library, so the pawbooks and her collection of Thea Stilton jives well with her interest without pushing her too much.

The activity books include excerpts from the book series to train and develop children’s interest in Geronimo Stilton books and later on the process  to improved their literacy skills through task-oriented activity. Most importantly to motivate learners to become mouse-terrific readers and writers.

Young girls are fun to dress-up and play with different characters, but with Ifugao costume for Buwan ng Wika school events I am more excited for parents to dress up their little boys with this traditional Filipino costume, the Igorot costume. Why? Most young boys frequently look safe with their minimalist outfit made of red cotton pants, white shirt (camiso de chino), red scarf and salakot; and of course with barong tagalog. Igorot costume is easy to assemble if your on a budget, plus you will achieve a look unique for your child.

The Seed Montessori School (TSMS) in Quezon City

Parenting
Philippine Education

From my previous topics about parenting and Philippine Education, I almost divert my blogs purely from those that are not connected with my personal journeys. Although I’ve written a bunch of stories about our child’s growing up years (you know well when a parent gets overjoyed with milestones they chronicle pieces of it) to the point I already get the hang of it and pacify any personal stories. Whilst once in while I received inquiries from parents to give feedback and reviews for The Seed Montessori School (TSMS), mostly came from emails and parenting forums.

To cut the story short, from way back 2013 I was in search for schools for my incoming first Grade child. The factors we considered are the following:

Whichever, UP education system has recently endorsed UPCAT Online Application starting this 2015.

Fill in the Blank: I Wish My Teacher Knew ____________________. Hear your kid’s thoughts

#IWishMyTeacherKnew
Parenting
Philippine Education


20 April 2015 – Months in between March to May are summer vacation here in Manila, technically there’s no teacher around to follow up what teacher Kyle had started. At home we are our child’s all-around teacher, so to make progress I gave my child a piece of paper to write down her idea behind “I Wish My Teacher Knew…” I had to pause the movie she was watching, she asked questions like “Is it about my personality? All about me?” What are your thoughts you wish your teacher knew (since she doesn’t know anything about you). It could be a happy or sad state; you choose and construct well what to answer. Think of it when you enter third grade this coming June. I bet she will bring the same activity to your class.

I left her for five minutes with this note (made me so pressured! hahaha):

If public school teachers here in the Philippines will adopt this lesson it could trigger a rather serious and more heartbreaking response from students.
