THE POWER OF FORMING THE RIGHT FRIENDSHIP
(...this is a follow up on my previous post)
Last post was about FM but this is about KJ, the friend in FM's story.
KJ is a very brilliant, very talented boy. He can be a clown too sometimes... One of the few who keeps the class lively... Many times, way to lively 😃
When it comes to reading, he's at the top of the class and the way he reasons is sometimes way above his age.
However, he had this little problem. He was very lazy. It was way worse last year when I started with them... Many times he wouldn't finish his sums. sometimes he'll totally avoid doing them. There are times he'd submit a blank script. This always got me pissed cos I know his abilities but it never shows in grade and this is not because he doesn't know but he just wouldn't do his work!
I've had several conversations with him regarding this and even though this conversations yields positive results but never enough to push him significantly up the grade scale. I remember the day I told him to his face; 'KJ, you are very lazy and that's why you are always behind in grades, not cos you are not smart'. He looked at me first with a puzzled look, then smiled.
Fast forward to this term. KJ met FM. FM has this amazing energy towards learning but struggled with maths and reading at the onset, KJ is smart, very good with reading and maths but lazy. Both had their strengths rub off on one another.
For the first time since I've been with them, KJ came 3rd with a 70.9% on the aggregate while FM came a little behind him 4th out of 97 with 70.1%. It is very important for children to form the right friendships as this can evidently make or mar their progress.
I did not initiate this friendship but seeing how well it is working for both, I encouraged it.
