I partnered with Gin and Kathleen for the post-assessment. It’s also a good thing that we saw Jake again since it’s easier to teach someone you already know.
For the oral language and book orientation assessment, he did good. He was able to answer our questions and do what we told him to do. However, he was still a little bit shy talking to us.
He was also knowledgeable in the naming and sounding of the letters. He just had difficulty in distinguishing the letters I and E, since he often interchange them. His handwriting was readable and understandable too.
In the free writing assessment, he drew a robot again, which I heard from Kat that is the same from his pre-assessment. When we asked questions about it, he was willing to engage with us. He even said that the robot’s name is JP, and when we asked him why, he said, “Yun pangalan ko eh. Tanong mo kay papa.” He’s cute. :))
He also did well in the syllable tapping test. In fact, he answered them fast. However, he kind of had a difficulty in the phoneme tapping assessment. He did well for his age though.
He liked the ones with pictures very much. He was able to recognize them (Smart, Sardines, Alaska, etc.). We also asked what his favorite was among the ten pictures, and he immediately answered (he was giggling even) that his all-time favorite is Jollibee.. of course.
We read Kristine Canon’s Bakit Matagal Ang Sundo Ko?. He really enjoyed the illustrations. He was able to answer our questions again, though I noticed that he was a little distracted now as he wanted our session to end quickly for him to play. We also asked him if he were in the same position with the female child in the story about what he would also do. He said that he would do the same, just sit in the “bangko” and wait for his mom.
Overall, since it’s the last day, I had fun. I enjoyed this NSTP even though I’m struggling with six majors this semester. At least even in my busy days, I was able to impart my time, teach kids, and have a lot of fun.
