My Favorite Subjects At School And Why I Loved Them

I had great times at elementary and junior high school. It felt like time flew so fast. Unlike those times, I didn't enjoy my high school times. However, I had some favorite subjects regardless of which level I studied in. Here are my favorite subjects at school and why I loved them.

Yes. I fell in love with science since in elementary school. It started when I read the text book about our planet and its surrounding. Planet Earth, the solar system, constellation and so on. I remember I went outside one night and pointed to the sky and said, "I know that. That's the Southern Cross," as my father accompanied me.

Not only astronomy, I liked biology as well. I was astonished to know how great those scientists were. I hardly imagined how they could describe organisms very specific with simple and limited tools. I admired how detail they drew and wrote their findings. They even collected their research into thick books!

Although I was not (and I'm still not) good at physics and chemistry but I do respect and admire them up to now.

If I could, I would learn many foreign languages at school. But, too bad, there was only English.
I love English so much. I like to read books in English as well as watching TV program in English. I'm not an expert, I'm just an amateur.

Back to my times at school, I always got good grade for English from Junior High to High School. English wasn't taught in elementary schools at the moment. To me, English was full of fun. While many of my class mates had difficulty with it, I never had bad experience with English but some killer teachers.

I fell in love with history, especially world history, when I studied it in High School. I think it was the teacher who drove me that. She taught the subject very interestingly. I never had such teacher before. She explained the World War I and II thoroughly. She opened my mind that the reason over something is important and that's the key to every situation in this world.

I think the biggest I got from my history teacher is the understanding. Nothing stands alone in this world. There must be some connections between one event and the others.

Well, those are my favorite subjects at school and why I loved them. Do you like science, English and history too? Or do you have other subjects that you loved at school? Please, do tell me.

Kids Activity: Three Legged Compound Word Race

Hi, Moms and Dads. Learning by playing is kid's stuff. What about building vocabulary? There is a fun activity to do with your kids explained in this guest post by, it's three legged compound word race.

If you are interested in guest posting, please feel free to contact me.

Happy reading!


In second grade, kids work hard to "sound out" new words as they build up their reading vocabulary. Sometimes, it’s easy; other times, more challenging…and if you’re new reader, having a few patterns up your sleeve can really help things along. One very useful tool is understanding “compound words”—long words that are really made from two shorter, familiar ones, combined.

Here’s a goofy party or park game for a bunch of second grade kids who are learning to read long words. Play it once, play it many times—it should still be good for learning and laughs.

Why Moms of Today Are More Fragile Compared To Their Seniors

I read a nice blog post yesterday about moms of today who seem more fragile than moms in the past. I agree a lot with the article and I try to write something about it, too.
As a mom of three who live in a modern life, I experience growing kids in different situations.
My first son was born 8 years ago at the time when facebook was just about to gain its popularity. I remember my brother told me to try facebook and he said, "people of our ages are there too." What he actually meant was he tried to convince me that this kind of social media was not too young for me unlike the previous social media which was fully loaded by youngsters: friendsters.
I, at first, was not sure to join facebook but then I read an article in a magazine and then I decided to try it out. And here I am now, a facebooker. Not long after that I had another baby, my second son who was born only 14 months after his big brother. I raised these two kids as if I had twins. They looked alike and they swal…

Purity And Prayer: An Islamic Children Rhyming Picture Book

In my younger years I once loved listening to nasheed (Islamic songs). Many songs I listened and memorized from groups of male to female nasheed group. I even handled a group of nasheed during my college years about 20 years ago. The rise of Islamic living was about to blossom at the moment. Hijabis had been started to appear here and there in campus.
Nasheed changed the way I spent my time. The guilty feeling of listening to music became smaller. I don't listen to music anymore now (gonna tell you later about it insha Allah) but nasheed was one good choice for me.
What I liked the most from nasheed is the rhyme. I am quite an auditory learner so I found rhyming is so much fun. It is more fun when comes to learning something. Kindergartens learn things through songs and rhymes as well.
What about learning Islam through rhymes? I have a great news! Book publisher, Prolance, has released a book called Purity & Prayer: Rhyming Picture Book of Sacred Rulings by Ameena Bint Abdir …
