Khaleef’s Year 1 Class Timetable

my eldest baby is in year one already! unlike last semester, now he wears shirt complete with a striped tie. fancy!


first day of school


this time around, he will also learn arabic – just very basic – but still i’m excited for him. i learn arabic when i was in UIA and it was super-tough. it’s great that khaleef can get the exposure at a young age.

there’s also islamic education, which starts with the most important fact – Allah is the creator of everything, and the lesson goes from there.

there’s also the subject UAE S.S – which stands for ‘united arab emirates social studies’. social studies? social studies?! when i was his age, i don’t even know what a ‘social studies’ subject is. heck, i don’t even know what ‘social’ means! if i’m not mistaken, in this subject they will learn about the culture and customs in the UAE, like the national dress – abaya and kandura for example.




and how about that tuesday lesson at the end – ICT? info & communication tech? man! kids these days seem to be born complete with IT manual haha. year 1 pun ade computer lesson! well, babies as young as few months can already operate the mouse once they learn how to sit up!

i was already in my standard 5-6 when i got to even touch my first computer keyboard! when abah brought back that bulky desktop, we were so excited that we slept in front of the computer so that we could be the first to play with it when we woke up. haha.

on the other hand, it’s a very positive thing when you realize that these young kiddos motivate themselves to learn how to spell their favorite cartoon so that they could ‘search’ for the videos on youtube. they can also play all sorts of language/maths game on the internet all by themselves.



khaleef is in the blue team - water


study smart, and play hard my son! discover your passion, and explore your imagination. mak and bapak will always be around to lend a hand (and nag you about homework). most of all, ENJOY because when you’re all grown up, you’ll soon realize that this is one of the best times of your life!

haha.. I remember going to standard 1 in Jeddah and it was awesome.. we did cool science experiments and sang songs .. learnt some arabic (I think..hehe).. sooo different to going to standard one again back in malaysia. Hope he enjoys school :)

wow! the subjects are so advance. Well, even in Malaysia, kids are expected to know how to read both in BM and English before they go Standard 1! If they still can't read, they are considered as 'slow learners' in Standard One.

Syigim said...

>> ermayum, betul la tu.. kita ni kat college baru merasa ade laptop sendiri, budak2 ni belum tadika dah ade 1-2 laptop kat rumah - mak & bapak punya ;)

>> hidayah, alhamdulillah for the arabic classes! so far so good! :)

Syigim said...
