can i enroll my 6 yo sa kumon to enhance her reading skills? gusto ko kasi sana kapag nag grade 1 na siya hindi siya mahirapan magbasa. wala kasi ako tiyaga mag turo. :( she can read 3 letter words or 4 letters kapag tagalog

Unfortunately and bagal nila mag update samin kung kelan yung Parents Orientation. So we decided not to enroll my son na dun. Madami din siya activities so for a working mom na super hectic ang schedule e hindi na matutukan yun. Although, I can say na maganda ang Kumon because they really instill good study habits. It's been a month na pero hindi parin nag s start yung son ko. So, sa private tutor nalang kami that will concentrate more on reading and writing this summer. :)

got some useful tips sa thread na eto..medyo pricey pala talaga and mas pricey pala sa enopi as what one sis says here..agree din ako sa dapat ienjoy ang childhood ng bata..sa mga moms na nag enroll ang kids sa kumon til ilang buwan pina-enroll sa program?anytime ba pwede naman ipa-stop?..if nag-prep na ang bata and naka enroll pa sa kumon di kaya maging masyado na exhausted ang bata after prep school at to think na repetitive yong yong approach ng kumon til ma-master ng bata..hehe..

sis glysolid_clarins: mas pricey ang enopi (eye level na yata sya ngayon) if I'm not mistaken. Oo naman dapat ipa-enjoy sa mga bata ang childhood nila, and dapat din help natin silang maximize ang potentials nila at a young age. :)

My kid is in prep, and she's been on the Kumon program since May 2015. They advise parents to stick with the program for at least two years to maximize the benefits Kumon offers. More on building habits kasi sya through constant and consistent practice, so it really does take time. Hindi sya quick fix ika nga. But yes, since monthly mo nirerenew, you can stop/rest any time.

My kid is in prep, and she does her Kumon (math) worksheets on a daily basis. There are times we miss out on one/forget, lalo na pag weekend. Hehe. So she just works on the missed one the next day.  Hindi ko alam with other kids, but with mine, she views it as her responsibility. So she knows she has to finish one a day, and has to work on two if she didn't work on one the day before. I don't even have to remind her, nagkukusa sya.

Is Kumon too much for a prep student? Personally ha, I think it's more of how YOU as the parent balances things for her. Give her enough time to play, supplement her learning with fun things to do, if your kid misses out or makes mistakes on the worksheets, don't sweat it - but make sure the child knows na dapat matuto sa mistakes and move forward, keep on improving. :) With my daughter, she takes about 10-15 minutes at most to answer a worksheet. The rest of the time pag wala naman sya assignment or school quiz the next day, I let her play, watch a bit of TV if she wants to, maglaro kami together, make stuff together, or we go out and have milk tea or mag-mall to play - even on a school day. Hehe.

She hasn't shown me any signs na ayaw na nya even after 7 months of doing Kumon. To 'test', I tell  her, anak hindi ka muna magKumon next month ha. Ay, nalungkot ang bata. Bakit daw, she wants to go back to Kumon pa din daw. She will miss her teacher there and her worksheets, saka malapit na daw sya sa goal nya na letter (they track progress by letters of the alphabet). So there, that's my cue, she's motivated, and she wants to continue. :)

Pag sinabi nyang ayaw na nya, then that's when we'll stop. :) I think same concept works naman with other enrichment classes we enroll our kids to - we take our cue from them - kung gusto ba nila talaga, is it helping them, at kung gusto pa nila ipagpatuloy. With enrichment classes naman, there's no harm in trying naman eh (there is gastos though. hehe), but there is pag pinilit lang sila. :)

I enrolled my kid in june for reading but i think we will take a break muna because he's not enjoying kahit na he is doing great kase the last exam is perfect naman and within the time limit. I really like kumon kase yung disiplina maski ako nagbebenefit pero i think i will delay muna. Maybe when my kid is 6 na we will continue with the program. As of now thinking of trying ready steady go program, 2 sessions na lang left for this term so will use those as trial and if gusto ng bata then will enroll him na.

I agree sis kvs..
Its how you balance things for the kiddos. My son kase 1 year lang in Kumon. 10th or 11 month ayaw na nya gawin worksheet nya. Di ko na pinilit kase masstress din ako.   I just want him to try kase any lessons and i pursue lang kung ano ang gusto nya.
With kumon, it helps talaga in terms of discipline and may progress talaga ang bata. Lately sabi nya gusto nya ulit mag Kumon pero Math daw. I will enroll him again soon.

for those with kids younger than 4 and nag start ng Kumon Reading, do they have to know how to read beforehand?

One year na ang daughter ko sa Kumon (Math) this month, and she's already 3 years advanced (in terms of lessons according to her Kumon teacher). Ang hirap na ng lessons, while I can still manage to help her out, nararamdaman ko na it's getting more 'intense' na. I asked my kid kung gusto pa nya ituloy, and she said, yes - she is going to be a completer daw - so I guess my daughter has more determination than me. Hehe. And now she wants to start Kumon Reading too....

Sis gumdrops26, I don't think need na marunong magbasa pag nagstart. Kasi they start sa basic talaga (even yung marunong na mag-read) before magmove to another level. Mag-assessment din naman so they'll be able to check what level dapat simulan yung bata. :)

Yes maganda may Kumon kung kaya naman sa budget. My daughter start at the age of 2.5y.o now she's 4y.o and she can read na basic like what grade one can read. Pag 5y.o nya i enroll ko na din sya sa Math.

Our daughter started school last month (Reception) and we're thinking about enrolling her in Kumon (English). I also agree na it's up to the parents to balance their days. For every worksheet completed, make sure they have 30-60 mins play time as well.

Next year, when she's in Yr 1, we'll start with Math naman.
