School Readiness Skills

  •  My child and I practice basic math skills together, like counting to ten, sorting objects by size and shape, and identifying some number symbols. 
  •  My child is able to read her own name, to listen attentively when being read to and tell me stories. She enjoys rhymes and recognizes rhyming words. 
  •  My child can do many things independently, like button shirts and zip up zippers, and use the bathroom without too much help. 
  •  My child is beginning to share with others and can understand and follow rules. She is becoming able to control her emotions and to talk about her feelings.

When I moved to Jimei 9 months ago, I was not familiar with the place. I got used to it after half a year. According to one of my neighbors, “Some part of Jimei is nice, some part of Jimei is disgusting”. Not for only once, when I walk along some beautiful quiet streets of Jimei, I feel the beauty of it and feel like in the heaven. Even till now  I am still not familiar with it, but when the bus drives along the bridge and I look at that place, I know I do know something about this place and it is part of my memory for ever. And just before the Chinese new year, I hear the song composed by one of the Jimei people. “最美是集美,集天下之美”.
