Since it rained till abt 3.30 this evening, I decided to stay back in school to finish my AJK Jemputan report on Hari Anugerah Cemerlang. It took more than two hours, finishing at around 4.30 and while doing it, I also took a peek at my geog teacher's record book. She's a new teacher here and I want to know her development in teaching this subject. Form One topics are very interesting to teach because you are teaching children who are still childish and yet old enough to understand serious issues.

I have a lot of things to do that I don't know where to begin. I want to prepare contents for the taklimat I'm going to give on Pembinaan Item. Then, there is my ppt presentations on the form one topics that needed some facelifts before the kelas bimbingan geografi which we had planned to carry out in the months before the Mid Year exam. Plus the exercises related to these topics. Next week, the form three students will start their Kerja Kursus Geografi PMR and definitely a pp…

Naggings

I came home late this evening, nearly 7.00 oclock. The girls had their 1st netball practice today and I like their 'semangat'..really bersemangat. And thanks to Pn. Muna for coaching them for almost 2 years. But alas! their match is just two weeks away.

This morning I scolded my students for not passing up their works. And also for not completing them. Same students. I told them that if they have any problem with the work I gave them, they should have seen me. I could go over the problems with them. But don't let the works get accumulated. I don't know but for the first time in my teaching career, I told my students to be professional in their 'job' as a student as much as I am in my work as an educator.
The students are not really stupid. Many of my students are not proficient in Bahasa Melayu. This really impedes the process of learning the contents of my teaching. Usually it is a one way process using the lecture method. It is not good, isn't it? However…

Balik kampung

Last tuesday evening, we went back to Tumpat. We reached my MIL's house at 2 something in the morning of the next day. We thought it would be a short journey considering we went back in the mid of the school holidays. Unfortunately, not so. Three accidents involving big lorries produced km long crawls along the only K.Lipis-Gua Musang-Kota Bharu route. Actually, the accidents didn't involve other vehicles. Just the lorries. Two turned turtle but I don't know about the third one since this info was given by another commuter who just came from the opposite direction.

Sigh. Lorry drivers, be careful la.

I am wondering whether they will build another route bypassing the populated areas. They should.

The days passed by very quickly and we spent them going to Kota Bharu and Pengkalan Kubor and did some shopping. You know guys, Kelantan is a shopper's paradise for batiks (a geography lesson).

Thursday evening saw us starting slowly on our journey back to KL. We forgot that it…
