    Learning BM

    Regarding learning Bahasa Malaysia (BM), it always troubles me that beside memorizing and learning by heart, there is no other way for us to learn it. Then one day, I received a message from a parent whom I respect a lot. Alas, the Guru I am looking for is right on my doorstep. With great honor, I met up with him and managed to get some good advice from him. Here is what he shared:

    1. First, we need a mindset change. Don't treat Pemahaman and Penulisan as two separate subjects to tackle. Teach the kids to see it as learning a language. Teach them to combine learning of BM Pemahaman and Penulisan together.
    2. For start, we need to create a BM reference book using an exercise book. Yes, the kid’s own BM revision book. Tell the kids to make their own notes and revision book instead of relying on all the reference books in the market. I am getting my eldest to mind-map and make his own notes on all subjects and when exams are near, he only reads his own notes. I forbade any reference book and so he learns to make good notes. The process of making notes is where and when he really LEARNS, not the notes itself. Hence, buying off the shelf reference books omitted this crucial learning process.
    3. I would recommend using Science notebook with alternate blank page. It is the best choice. I called it "The Blue Book".
    4. NILAI MURNI: Get a list of all the Nilai-nilai Murni. For each Nilai Murni,
      • write down its meaning and synonyms
      • Find three sentences using the Nilai Murni; best to pick from Contoh Karangan books. By doing so, we indirectly make the kids read more and go through more good sample essay. Remember, reading is crucial for writing good essay.
      • You can start with one sentence first. Not a must to come out with all three sentences at one time.
      • This is a continuous exercise; update/add on the sample sentences from time to time.
      • By doing this, the kids understand the meaning of Nilai Murni, which helps in Bahagian B. Then, they also learn how to use the Nilai Murni in making sentences. And if you look at the UPSR essay questions, in general, you cannot run away from writing facts or describing things using Nilai Murni.


    5. Prepare RANGKA (framework) for each type of karangan berformat. Copy down the rangka into "The Blue Book" even if Contoh Karangan books have it. This is part of the learning process. Encourage the kid to add on any personalized notes, such as some good opening they like to use for syarahan. At the end, this Blue Book will serve as their revision book. All the important notes should be in this little Blue Book. Don’t expect a kid to go through all the sample essays in all Contoh Karangan books the day before exam as revision.
    6. Two of the Contoh Karangan books recommended are (best if can finish reading them) :
      • “222 Koleksi Penulisan Bahasa Malaysia UPSR” by Malaya Press
      • “X-plor UPSR Koleksi Karangan” by Info Didik

    7. MIND-MAPPING: Teach your children MIND MAPPING, which will be the key tool to help them make effective notes and after that, leave them to do it in their own format or style. I actually bought TONY BUZAN's book on mind mapping for kids and let him read it himself so that he can understand and appreciate the concept of the tool.
    8. Before exam preparation, mind map every essay question using Contoh Karangan books. This trains the kids to be able to identify and extract key content/points for a topic discussed while going through the sample essay. With this, kids learn to associate key contents with the topic of essay, and the topic can be in any format, such as syarahan, surat rasmi etc. And kids do not need to memorize the whole sample essay including the format by heart.
    9. Here is an example of how he used mind map to do Penulisan past year paper, learn to create content and then select essay.

    10. Using the "LEGO" analogy to explain to kids – E.g. The top (pembuka) and the bottom (penutup) are like the special pieces in LEGO. So need to know them and then, the middle (content/isi) can mix and match. They can just pluck those key contents which they have learnt/read previously and put it.
    11. During exam, go through each question. Evaluate each question and see how many points you have for each question. Then choose the one you have all the points/the most points. The key is: Do what you know, NOT what you like. In other words, choose the one you can score the best. Then spend 5 minutes to do the full mind map before starting to write.
    12. Even at home, simulate this by using past year questions. Come out with the mind-mapped rangka, and choose one to write. In actual exams, he will DO ONLY ONE MIND MAP after selecting the topic, not 3 that you see in photos

    13. Tips on WHAT TO DO FIRST during Penulisan exam.
      1. Start with Bina Ayat.
      2. Then Ulasan. As the mind is still fresh now, just warm up from Bina Ayat, it is best to work on Ulasan. Ulasan needs clear mind to do and cannot be panic. And Ulasan is very crucial in determining what grade a kid can score.
      3. Lastly only Karangan. This type of question has very high risk of keluar tajuk (out of scope). This type of mistake is fatal. This can be avoided by using mind map. Teach the kids to always refer back the mind map every time they finish one paragraph and before starting a new one. This is to make sure they are not carried away and write something out of scope. We used mind map to help solve the "out of topic" writing by constant reference.
      4. A good time management skill is required. E.g. When the reminder of last 10 minutes left is announced, must start to wrap up. Must always bear in mind, as long as there are 5 points + pembuka + penutup, no out-of-topic, they are fine.

    14. Now, let’s move to Pemahaman. The same exercise like Nilai Murni needs to be done for the following topics. Do it every few months.
      • Simpulan Bahasa / Peribahasa
      • Penanda Wancana (note: this is important and often neglected)

    15. Before each exam, read the following grammar topics. These types of questions make up 25% of the paper.
      • Kata Banyak Makna
      • Kata Hampir Sama Makna
      • Penjodoh Bilangan

    16. Explain to the kids, whatever they learn in item 14. and 15. above are also useful for their essay as it enrich their vocabulary and enhance their language.
    17. These two tatabahasa books are highly recommended:
      1. “Teman Pelajar Sistem Bahasa” by Cemerlang
      2. "Fokus Tatabahasa" by Pelangi

    18. Know the differences between Pantun, Sajak, Puisi, Syair, Gurindam and Seloka. It’s quite common when poem is used in comprehension paper, the first question will ask for “What is the type of this poem?”


      PREPARATION FOR UPSR (Standard 6 students)
    19. Past Year Papers - start doing it as early as Jan. Every two/three weeks complete one paper. Must target to finish by two months before UPSR. The last two months before UPSR exam should be kept for doing revision.
    20. When going through the past year papers, make sure the kids understand every single answer, be it correct or wrong. Learn the meaning and its usage. This is to enhance the vocabulary of used in SK BM paper.
    21. During Final Revision (last week or two week before exam), review all the questions they did wrongly, understand what and why. Kids tend to make systematic errors.


    Lastly, quoting my Guru, “Parents must understand there is no shortcut to building solid foundation, it takes TIME and PRACTICE, and you may only see the results a few months later or during actual UPSR exam.

    The hardest part is for us as parents TO BE PATIENT and allow them to make mistakes and do it their own way. So, the earlier you can start, the better and be brave enough to actually tell the child to revise for exams using his/her own notes and nothing else. The first time I said that to my son, he got a shock and I was nervous. But when he realized I was being serious about revising from notes as key revision tool, he improved and fine-tuned his notes later.

    I am now an ex-LH parent after 1:30pm.

    I would like to take this small opportunity to record my thanks to the good teachers. I have managed to thank a few of you personally today. I wish all of you the best and please continue with your good work for the children

    I guess this is really final goodbye and farewell to the LH forum here

    Good luck CurryM. All the best to your kid. No wonder the area was jam-packed with cars. I was there for currymee just now. Had to park my car by the roadside at the far end.

    Any idea how many students obtained straight A's in UPSR this year ? Most of the classes in std 4-6 for next year have been reshuffled after the result was released

    Ok, let me answer this one last "misconception" or stories on the 5-foot way.

    Firstly, like nearly all other SJKCs nationwide, the UPSR 2015 results for sjkc took a dip. LH is no exception. FYI, LH results is 47 7As, 57 6As, 47 5As if my Half-Past-Six Mandarin is accurate in understanding the announcements.

    With regard to the streaming, I have heard about the plans to do so for the last 6 years (since my son entered std 1 in 2010 and today left after 6 years). Finally, LH is implementing it. Good if the intention is to help the weaker students to do better but bad (IMHO) if the focus is on elitism. So, that outcome is still open to judgement and can only be decided after implementation.

    As far as I know, it is not a reaction or response to only this year's results but to the declining trend of last few years. Will streaming reverse the negative trend ? I hope so if it helps the weaker students to do well and hence improve the percentage of passes. To me, this should be the REAL POSITIVE value of streaming to help the weaker and not generate as many 7As as possible at their expense, which is elitism. That view is my personal point of view and idealism which is contrary to the common ethos of Chinese education that celebrates and promotes elitism. I expect 99% of LH parents and teachers to disagree with me but it is ok, my views are no longer relevant to the school.

    So, I expect streaming in LH to follow the traditional Chinese education ethos of elitism rather than "no one left behind". Since I no longer have any "locus standi" on this matter as I am now an ex-LH parent, I can only wish you all good luck for the future.

    Just remember, PLEASE ALWAYS THINK OF THE CHILDREN WELFARE FIRST, that is what that really matters, not the school nor its academic reputation.

    I am a parent who believes in CHILDREN and not the school.

    Ok, bye.

    A big THANK YOU to Lick Hung teachers for playing a part in the development of my children.

    Thank you for a meaningful Std 6 Graduation Ceremony yesterday.
    A great parents turnout, almost filling the whole hall. Most of the parents from my child's class attended, from those who were straight A's to the one who struggled.
    The whole program from 8am to noon throughout, was all about gratitude.
    ( OK, I do not want to spoil the surprise for next year's Std 6 parents, but do attend the ceremony.)

    What I saw were dedicated teachers who wanted as much as possible to prepare their charges well to continue their journey. In the course, they instill in the kids,
    the perserverance and discipline, tenacity to take on hardwork ( not to fear hardship ). They set expectations, and they want
    the kids to set expectations to better themselves too and to want to TRY THE VERY BEST !
    I saw teachers who wanted their charges to be the best they can. So, thank you LICK HUNG teachers !!

    Moving on, I wish the teachers and the new HM, and the school, every success in molding our impressionable young minds.
    THANK YOU !!

    Dear LH parents,

    For those of you who are still emailing and private messaging me requesting for exam papers. Please take note that I no longer have any documents and information whatsoever on or related to SJKC Lick Hung except for my son's 2015 UPSR exam slip, 2015 school magazine and school leaving certificate.

    I have deleted everything else (digitally and recovered almost 2GB of hard disk space) and recycled all the books, papers, notes etc etc ...

    Please refer to the current group of LH parents in the Facebook group for assistance. https://www.facebook.com/groups/lick...rents/?fref=ts

    If you want any information on SJKC Lick Hung (they finally have a good website system working), please refer to : http://www.lickhung.edu.my/

    GOOD LUCK AND ALL THE BEST !

    UPDATES:

    Information for current SJKC Lick Hung parents who emailed me asking about SMK and DLP :

    SMK with Dual Language Programme (DLP) in SJ/USJ area - teaching of Science and Maths in ENGLISH.

    1.) SMK USJ12 (since 2015 - started 2016) - Pioneer
    2.) SMK USJ2 Seafield (since early 2016 - started 2016)
    3.) SMK USJ4 (since 2016 - recently obtained, starting next year 2017) (see Note)
    4.) SMK Subang Utama (pending)

    These are the SMKs that majority of LH students will be assigned to. There are others but I am only keeping track on these 4 SMKs - children of friends are there

    Note: For SMK USJ4, all current classes that were teaching Science and Maths in English (under previous PPSMI) will be officially under DLP.

    I am wondering where all parents were gone?
    Everybody seems agree and satisfy with the school to collect smart board fee, computer fee, so called donation for curtain.. now donation for locker.
    So so many fee/ donation need to be made this year..
    As a housewife with no income, i feel very stressful when kid came back and told me it MUST be paid no matter what.. even though written in the memo is "donation"
