Yahoo! We are at our third fruit sale. During preparation, we were surprised and happy with additional help from Chin Kang. We also discovered that he is very good at peeling and cutting fruits. He also taught Yung Han the finer art of slicing and cutting fruits. Our preparation for the day moved easily and smoothly. Wow!
Breezy Corner took off on 31 July 2017. It had developed from a writing class presentation project where our teacher wanted us to think of something of value which we could add to Breakthru. We brainstormed various ideas, did a quick mini survey and agreed that something of value for the staff and student would be a fruit corner. Iris was tasked with designing the powerpoint with me as the writer of content and Yung Han together with Jonathan would speak during the presentation. Everything went well and the management supported our idea of having a fruit corner.
Our fruits of the day were crunchy guava and sweet juicy dragonfruits. All four of us took turns washing, peeling and cutting the fruits before neatly packing the fruits up for sale. To ensure freshness of the fruits, we included ice-cubes in the storing containers. Actually we had a few hiccups but managed to release our fruits on time.
Jonathan, Yung Han and Iris cheerfully took the fruits to the customers. Our fruits were all well received and sold out within the lunch hour! Hooray!
Children with dyslexia experience many learning difficulties. Most of the learning difficulties vary from child to child in types and levels. However, a common behaviour of these children, without proper guidance and acceptance, are a lack of self confidence and have very low self-esteem.
The following are some of the learning difficulties caused by dyslexia experience by many dyslexic children:
1. Difficulties with spelling.
Dyslexic children have difficulty with phonological processing. They have difficulties in identifying sounds, knowing how many sounds there are, and knowing the order in which sounds occur in words. They tend to spell with sensible phonic but wrong i.e. jerney for journey. They also experience difficulties with visual memory when they show jumbled spellings i.e. thron for thorn
2. Difficulties with reading.
Some dyslexic children have difficulties with visual tracking when they have difficulties to decode words, read fluently from left to right and therefore have difficulties to comprehend what they have just read.
