Covid-19 Circuit Breaker measures have started in Singapore. During this period where many of us are working from home, one great way to help our children occupy their time while enriching their minds is through books!
For parents with younger children, take the opportunity to bond with them by reading to them. For older children, parents can encourage them to read the books by themselves, and then discuss the stories they have read, and what the lessons contained in them mean to them. One beautiful ‘side-effect’ of this of course is that parents will get an opportunity to spend quality time with their children to communicate and know them better.
Don’t underestimate the power that lies behind reading a storybook. That seemingly simple act does amazing things when it comes to developing your children’s minds!
My First Skool: The Culture of Reading
We hope you found that list useful. Here at NTUC First Campus’ My First Skool, we recognise how important it is to develop young minds through the power of books and stories — in fact it’s a key part of our curriculum., a key focus area of engagement for our teachers with the kids are the daily storytelling sessions. These sessions feature show-and-tell opportunities to support language and literacy development. Beyond sessions in a classroom setting, we also believe in collaborating with parents to develop a culture of reading. May we continue to work together to give our kids the inspiration they need to develop that precious commodity that they have: their imagination. As Einstein has said, “Imagination is everything, It is the preview to life’s coming attractions”.
