A little overdue. I had every intention of posting it as soon as I was done with the PTA meeting but somehow I realized I couldn't recall what they were marked on. And since most of them were developing/ established, I never bothered really as the teacher did not ask me to reinforce anything at home.
But yes, things are coming back in pieces to me and as I recall, the most interesting part was the page that the teacher showed me which contained all that they answered during question time.
Tejas had mentioned he likes banana & apple and Ojas had mentioned he likes juice (while it is actually the opposite). They had named healthy foods, seasons and various other concepts that were being covered in class.
There is one thing that I am worried about however. Ojas is definitely seen as a star with great grasping power and eagerness to and quickness in writing and completing his work. Whereas Tejas is seen as the more laidback, non proactive type!
A little unfair because I know that in reality, Tejas is as enthusiastic as Ojas and in a crowd, he tends to withdraw into his shell.
There are days he comes complaining that while Ojas got 2 stars, he got only a single one or none. While it breaks my heart, I really cannot judge the teacher as I am sure she is being objective. And as perceptions go, they are a little difficult to change.
Probably thats why they say that twins should be in different classes as one tends to overshadow the other and one may get too comfortable in the presence of the other and not make an effort at all, even in making friends.
Maybe in time my baby will understand how to market himself! Or maybe not, because his Mamma is exactly like him...diffident, never gives away her abilities, so much so that her own classmates in college were shocked that she was among the only 6 who competed in the placement entrance exams in college for a particular software company.
And off course I am not worried about Ojas as he is exactly like his Dadda- charmer, maintains a good reputation of himself, super confident and outgoing.
