Learning never Stops!

Happy Holidays!

It is school break again and that means your child will have a break from routine and the usual hustle & bustle of travelling to schools, programs and some of the usual daily activities that have been set through the past few months. But learning should not stop, and it never does, for your child!

A child learns in all settings, and even more so during Children Playing playtime. When your child plays, their imagination creates meaning to the construct that they created. As Jean Piaget quoted, “Children have real understanding only of that which they invent themselves.” Therefore, set time for your child to play and be themselves, without anyone’s intervention, but at the same time with adult supervision. Observe your child, let them take the lead in playing and try to play alongside them; if they involve you then it’s even better! Parents can help to generate meaning, and facilitate learning, by naming things, actions and commenting when the child does an activity, in order to increase their vocabulary, receptively or expressively.

Quick Tips
Tips
Some activities to try out with your child at home:

  1. Baking or Mini-cookery Sessions
    Baking Children love mixing and getting involved with baking or cooking. Telling them or showing them that the end product is their favourite food or contains their favourite ingredient, will make it an indoor activity winner! Do make sure that the activity is scaled to your child’s ability level. For example, the younger ones can help to add the final touches and decorate when baking, or just dumping the pre-measured items in a bowl; the older child can help in measuring ingredients, adding food colouring to the mix or shaping the cookies.
  2. Puzzles
    Puzzles Puzzles are great for kids of all ages and is a wonderful time-filler activity for parents. It helps to work on developing fine motor and problem solving skills and is just plain fun! For better engagement, do let your child work on puzzles that are just right or slightly higher for their level (e.g. younger children can work on wooden matching puzzles first) and use pictures that keeps them interested for added motivation.
  3. Super-sized Painting
    Super sized painting Clear the table and tape a big paper (you can use mahjong paper) over it so that your child will have an enjoyable time colouring, drawing, painting and doodling over the big space. For adventurous parents, you may explore taping the big paper on the floor and do foot prints or hand prints design or even draw the outline of your child and then draw and colour in all the goodness of your child in it!
  4. Mini-Theatre
    Mini Theatre Hear all, come all! There is a new play in town! Act out your child’s favourite story or even better, get your child to act out the story and present it to close family members or to their stuffed toys and figurines. It is great fun to role-play, sing and act in a safe environment and not be judged, so parents will have to take the lead and let loose the inner talent in them!
  5. Mini Experiments
    Mini Experiment Children learn really well through experiencing, so do simple, mini-experiments at home like mixing water-colours to generate new colours or create a small volcano and look at the bubbles (“lava”) formed by mixing baking soda with vinegar. It will thrill the child and yet it is educational at the same time.
