Kin could remember each planet effectively. Last year when I taught him the same topic and he hardly remembered any. He was too young then (5++) or the AR app did wonders?

Looks cocky having to hold the planet in one hand

Session 2: Art & Craft – Draw the 8 Planets 


Kin drew the 8 planets orbiting the sun but realised that it was tiring to colour the big sun. Thus, he drew super small planets. He coloured one of the planet pink n said it is for me, so sweet! He also allocated a green planet for himself.

Today is second day of home schooling.

Kin’s classmates had increased fr 2 to 7. He divided them into 3 classes – 1K, 2S n 3B. I elected Kin as monitor as he had met 3 criteria :-

  • Responsible (hope he knows that he is lack of this)
  • Helpful
  • Kind

He was really excited about this and acted more mature and organised.
