Hi parents

 

I am thinking of signing my boy(4 years old) to SM(Shichida Method) in HDB HUB next year and would like to hear from parents who kids are are older and have with the programme for at least 2 years.

Do the school really has the material even after 7 years old(primary 1 level).

Thanks

I only attend 1 terms

I only attend 1 terms program and moved to overseas, so can't really tell any effect on my child. I tried to continue do the flashcard and math dot flashing with my child. After few cycle, still show no effect.
Actually, she doesn't seems to improve any sense on numbers and words recognition.

I also check on other parents that has been with shichida for year, also can't describe anything fantastic. Might work for baby or kids <3 years old.

Well, If you have that amount of money to spend, why not, training is better than nothing.

Shichida for a 2 year old

This is our second semester at Shichida. They told you from the begginnnig that most of the time results is only seen after 1 year at least. and you have to carry out the activities with the kids everyday. I confess, I am not a super on mum who do all the recommended activities everyday. The only thing I do pretty often is flash cards and have just started making some for him.

Basically, I find that the flash card is quite useful tool to  teach for teaching my little guy stuff. Great part is it can be done pretty fast and he actually does learn the things in the cards.

Other than that, the classes we have been to so far consists of

1.exposing the kids to other languages by listening to songs and stories in a variety of languages such as french, german, chinese, japanese etc. My current teacher also teach japanese characters and words by flash cards and games

2. Learning concepts, counting, etc through home made games. (those are pretty creative) and are quite enjoyable.

3. Exposing the kids to memory techniques like photographic memory , flash memory and linking memory through games, flash cards and story telling.

4. Spatial visualisation by encouraging kids to build a shape using little bricks.

5. Exposing kids to speed reading by story telling.

6. Finger training by playing games like using chopsticks and singing songs with actions.

7. Encouraging intuition (ESP) by playing guessing games.

8. Exposing kids to worksheets.

9 Re-enforce the concept of using encouragement and praises to encourage the children.

The plus is my kid enjoys most of the activities and does seems to be doing better in some of them. The materials are also selected / created carefully and is enjoyable for the kids and inspiring to me as the parent. 

The big minus is that the  classes are extremely expensive at about 70 -80 bucks per session with no make up classes even with valid reasons or if hte lesson falls on a public holiday. I do heard of a lot of parents that pull their children out after one year due to the sky high pricing. Some have learn sufficient of the techniques to be confident in carrying out the activities themself . Others have turn to other brain training schools with more reasonable charges.

Phantom's review of The Shichida Method

The Shichida Method is a technique of right brain simulation that is devised and proposed by Professor Makoto Shichida of Japan. It has branches in Japan, Singapore and Malaysia.

The method concentrates on the stimulation and development of a child’s right brain through methods like flash cards, ESP activities, instant memory, linking memory, image play and other non conventional techniques to help stimulate the right brain of a child as young as 3 months old.

The parents are suppose to train the child daily for at least 10 min with some of the recommended methods for the course to be effective.

It is getting well known and popular among parents in Singapore as seen from the expanding presence of shichida schools in Singapore and the limited vacancies available.

During the lessons, parents will need to accompany the child in the class to participate in the activities. The methods aim to bring out the genius in a child and it was said that the average IQ of a shichida child is around 140. One of the fundamental theory behind Professor Shichida is through the methods, it will help build the foundation required, via right brain simulation, to enable the child to pursue their other interest (including acadamics) later part of their life with ease.

The enrolment to the course will require the parent to pay a deposit of around S$200 which will be forfeited if the child did not continue until after the first year. After which the deposit will be used to offset the term fees. Each term lasts for 3 months, 1 lesson of 1 ½ hours each week. The fee for each term is around S$800. The requirement for a minimum of 1 year is because, according to the principal, the method will only show results after at 1 year.

They have preview sessions where speeches will be given to parents to provide a better understanding of the methods and at the same time open for registration. The methods have schools in Singapore at Springleaf Tower and HDB Hub.
