Rockstar: You took a picture of my phonics books! Did you even look inside?
Me: Uh… I’m going to.
Rockstar: Yeah you should. It’s awesome. How about today?
Rockstar: I’ve such a good feeling this is the right answer…
In the midst of packing (yes we are going somewhere, just the 4 of us!), here’s a few excerpts from what Rockstar’s written.
First thing I see when I open his diary/ essay book is:
Overleaf, he’d written:
“Once upon a time, there was a young viper that lived in a tree in a wood. One day his mother viper said to him, ‘Your Grandpa needs help’. Along the way (he didn’t realize) there was a tree and inside the tree was a crafty, hungry kobra. The kobra wanted Grandpa’s treasure. The kobra thought of a cunning plan.” …..
I look up from the cliffhanger of a cunning plan to bite grandpa, “So then what happened?”
Rockstar: I ran out of time. <shrugs>
Me: What? Then I’m never going to find out if the “kobra” managed to steal the treasure??
Here’s another cliffhanger:
(Btw I think this was around the time one of his favorite friends at school had a reptile show for his birthday, they must’ve been having a lotta reptile discussions on the playground…)
Though I’m not sure how I feel about being portrayed as disbelieving and Kings as sadistic.
Me: You’ve got some very simple spelling mistakes (“wanted” not “wated”), were you rushing?
Rockstar: Yeah! We ran out of time tsk!
Anyway, he’s come a long way, baby…
Nice he can write down crazy ideas now. Y’know, like how the Earth is round and all that…
And that was Goodbye Year 1. Rockstar’s huge transition into Primary school.
ps: We’re about to leave Hong Kong…. or, when you read, we may have already left…
