I wait there since it's a 30min drive... no point driving back and forth. I generally do my own thing as I don't want to get stressed out about their prowess, or lack thereof. JE seems to be doing well enough...
Point toes, step, step
SE, however... Every time I look her way, she would wave at me, extend her arms for a hug or just run over to me. So I make it a point NOT to look. Then one day, I looked up long enough to notice that she DOESN'T follow instructions! While the rest of the class watch the teachers, she looks outside, at the ceiling, at other people. While others practice the steps, she would just stand there or fiddle with her leotard/hair/specs. Partly it's because she doesn't understand instructions, some of which would be delivered in Mandarin (this is a Chinese school, after all). Partly because she's younger, some motor skills like bouncing a ball and jumping a rope are beyond her. So now she gets stern instructions from me to FOLLOW WHAT THE TEACHER SAYS.
Sometimes she does that.
Point toes, arms up
Quite often I still catch her NOT following. Oh this small girl. I guess learning SOME of the skills are better than nothing haha.
