Week 21 Singapore Genius School Krabi – Primary Education
We welcome the durian season by having a durian feast for the students. It was really yummy. Next week is set for our final year exams. Students weak in reading have been getting individual coaching. We are seeing remarkable improvements with this. We have been doing the same for Math. Weak students have been sacrificing some of their lunch time to get individual coaching for Math. Personalized coaching helps our students go further. And as the day get closer for the final exams, the kids have been working hard. We continuously work with their comprehension books, reading skills, and spelling. We also did Idioms during lunch and reading the news.
This week we reminisced the event of the Ides of March. It is considered as one of the most important events in the Supremacy of Rome. The kids really do enjoy their history lessons.
It is one of the toughest week for the students this week. Because their memories were tested.
Stories in English class are considered as part of literature. And it works so much in the comprehension aspects of the subject. Dictation is now a part of their writing assignment to improve.
As the term ends, we encourages our students to comply their workbook requirements. That will give them good outputs and good results.
Singapore Math Lower
Solving problems in Singapore Math needs more practice and techniques to be followed. This week we learned other methods or techniques on how to solve problems that involve division, one of these is using bars as dividends. Students enjoyed solving problems using it. We also reviewed their multiplication tables, in order for them to solve problems in the division too.
Singapore Math Higher
Knowing the strengths and weaknesses of students make the learning process more valuable. This week we discovered that students still found fraction difficult. We studied how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions. Students learned some processes and techniques to solve fractions, one of this is to find the LCD or least common denominator of each fraction. We also reviewed their multiplication table.
Singapore Science Lower
Learning by doing is very vital in studying Science. This week we went around the school to observe and list things that are present around and classify them into a living or non-living thing. Students enjoyed this activity because they’ve learned not only the lesson but also observed and realized how beautiful our environment is.
Singapore Science Higher
Health is wealth. Knowing how to take care of every part of our body is very important to all of us. This week we studied how humans grow. First, we concentrated on the reproductive system of a human body and we tackled the parts and functions of the male reproductive system.
This week were able to play football at Krabi Arena. The game ended into 5-5. Our swimming was as usual fun and seeing the children improving is so satisfying. We focused on their speed and timing of breathing.
Accuracy gives assurance that your work is going to be victorious. This week we studied techniques on how to sketch more accurately, one of these is the grid drawing. It includes measuring and drawing a grid in the picture you want to draw then zoom it out on another paper by multiplying the measures by a number. Students enjoyed drawing each part of the picture
In Chinese class, we first reviewed the last lesson before giving some exercises. Then we had Chinese art which makes them more interested in cutting pictures and forming it into a Chinese lamp.
In Thai class, we cooked Thai Dessert called “Buo Loy”. Students were interested in preparing the dessert especially by mixing the flour to form into small balls. They had the fun of mixing ingredients altogether. We also discussed teachers day in Thailand. I explained to them the importance and the reasons why everyone celebrated it. They made a bouquet of flowers and gave to their teachers as a sort of appreciation.
This week we discussed the prime lessons in computer class, that would enhances their knowledge in operating MS Office. We tackle the page settings, page set up, and paper set up. We apply these techniques on how to make some greeting cards.
We revisited this lesson again. As the last lesson did not allow the kids to explore enough of this lesson. We even used up our Science Experiment time for this subject. The Genius Robotics is getting more intense. We explore race car features. Create and program a race car to investigate what factors would make it go faster. Document and present ways to make your car go the fastest.

A short quiz just to measure how far they’ve learned from the previous lessons and almost all of them got perfect score.
Chess and Star Of The Week
As usual the real battle is between Rajpal and Gerrit in the final hours of the cut off time. It gets even emotional. A terrible feeling. We encourage students to have true qualities of sportsmanship. To accept defeat gracefully. Students were encourage to leave their hands on the table and think before they move their pieces. And to use the same hand that move the pieces to press the clock as in what is done in international games. Coaching them little by little goes a long way. This week winner was Gerrit. he won on a time out by Rajpal. Our Star Of The Week Is Chandra. Chandra has been working very hard this semester. Chandra is like the unofficial Prefect of the school. Well done Chandra!
