Star Learners @ Sembawang April Update

Learning about Animals!

We had an exciting & wonderful time last month, with our Animal Kingdom theme at our centre @ Sembawang!

We had a "Pets" day, where live pets were brought to the Centre, and most of the little playgroup children had their very first exciting close up experience with real live pets such as rabbits, hamsters, gerbils, fishes (angel fish, swordtail fish, goldfish, neon tetras, mollies) and terrapins.

They were had a really enjoyable time & we could tell that they were really enjoying themselves, and learning so much at the same time! Here are some pictures & a video to show you what happened! :)

Star Learners @ Simei- April Update!

Stanley Starfish Character Development Programme- Truthfulness
In the month of March 2010, as part of our Stanley Starfishtm Character Development Programme, the K1 & K2 children were taught about truthfulness.

We helped the children’s learning by encouraging them to hold steadfastly to the truth and releasing their imagination to freely weave a story.

They learnt the definition of truthfullness as: “telling it as it really is.”

The little ones were taught that telling the truth does not involve decorating the facts or twisting it or reducing it.

They must know when to use their creativity to weave a story but they must not let it interfere with the truth or actual fact. There is a difference between fantasy & reality.
The teachers also shared the story of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” to illustrate the need to be truthful

We later played a game called “Steps to Truthfulness” as part of the lesson for the children to enjoy learning through play.

What a meaningful lesson it was. :)

Star Learners @ Eunos- April Update!

Cooking Fun!

Children enjoy cooking & eating together. It provides opportunities for learning in an exciting, fun and satisfying way.

In the month of March, the children at Star Learners @ Eunos enjoyed preparing a number of dishes such as sushi, strawberry breadrolls & fruit salad!

The children had the opportunities to plan, prepare, talk & share amongst themselves during the learning process of each cooking activity.

Watch them in action! :)
