Standards of Primary One Preparation by Pre-schools

The crux of the problem lies with the P1 ‘standard’ in my opinion.

The "broad curriculum framework"/guidelines given by the ministries are very sound ones based purely on child development theories and I support them 100% (though with cynicism coz these guidelines are mostly on character building / developing life long love for learning / etc with little weightage on academics and this is definitely not many of those kiasu parents want for their kids).

Spelling and tingxie are never part of the guidelines (meaning if a centre does not practice such, it is actually 100% within the guidelines. If a centre gives such, then it maybe not be within the guidelines). “Learning through play” is the key point in the guideline.

Teaching Maths At Home! - Indirect Teaching

Heyya guys,  I know Christmas is sooooo over, but you can actually use songs like Jingle Bells for indirect approach to learning.

Though when its time to listen to instructions & the continuous naggings from us, the children don't really seem to be using much of their auditory... when it comes to music, they LIKE.

Indirect learning is like how mincy adds the mathematical terms in her daily conversations with her child. Months of the year can also be carried out without having to do official sitting down kinda work..

We can be in the kitchen and singing aloud... Say, we use the tune to Jingle Bells to sing the Months of the year like this...
