A Day In My Children's Student Life11:20 PM
I've been wondering for quite some now just how exactly my children spend their days in school. I found some answers during the School Open House last week. For two days, I got the chance to observe a day each of my two young children's respective student life.
Inside the classroom, I found them sitting in their usual seats which I observed where both at the back. This was quite expected really as they are both tall for their respective ages. The seating set-up for elementary students provide them with a seatmate while the high school students are occupying seats which are clearly apart from each other. They occupy the same seats for the whole week.
As expected, more time is allotted to academic learning more than any other activity inside the classroom. I have observed their teachers using various technological gadgets as teaching aids in addition to traditional books. Each teacher brings his/her own USB which contains the lessons for the day.
Students have two eating breaks, recess and lunch. Students from grade 3 below eat inside the classroom while students in higher levels eat at the assigned school canteens. Recess is for thirty minutes while lunch is for 50 minutes. My children tell me that they usually have to eat fast because they need to use some time for practice in group presentations.
