Concepts Abound!

Concepts Abound!
(Language)

These weekly sessions run by our Speech Language Therapists aim to keep our young ones stimulated and thinking! Designed for children from ages 5 to 6, the class provides excellent preparatory foundations for those entering formal schooling.

This workshop aims to teach concepts that students may miss out in their daily lives.  Yet, an understanding of concepts is fundamental to learning in formal elementary school. Children listen for the target concepts in the stories, story questions and activity directions. The weekly activities keep our group buzzing with laughter and learning. Children get to learn language through:

  • Creative stories
  • Fun worksheets for following instructions
  • Hands on Activities
  • Progress checking

A total of 86 concepts are taught in forty weekly lessons. There are two activities in each session.  Examples of concepts taught:

  • Next to/away from
  • Forward/backward
  • Half/whole
  • Most/fewest
  • First, next, last
  • And More

Is your child ready for Math in school? Weekly preparatory math sessions are run by our Educational Therapists for children from ages 5 to 6 and entering formal schooling.

This workshop aims to teach concepts that students will require in school, be it of the international or local syllabus. The concepts will be done in a hierarchical manner, whereby concepts will be built upon step by step to develop addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and word problems. Understanding of these concepts are fundamental to higher order mathematical learning. Children will also be able to track their progress to foster competency and motivation. Children will be engaged in learning through a variety of ways:

  • Visualising
  • Manipulatives
  • Math language
  • Progress checking

Concepts will be taught in forty weekly lessons, with two activities in each session.
