COVID 19 Activities
In light of the recent COVID19 outbreak, teachers planned meaningful learning experiences for young children. Children were introduced to various jingles and songs about germs and handwashing. They also learnt about the importance of practising good personal hygiene through proper handwashing technique. This also lead them to learning about how to make their very own Do-It-Yourself (DIY) hand sanitizer. The older children from Kindergarten One and Two class were involved in a series of class discussions to discuss what and how COVID 19 affects their lives in Singapore and to many others around the world. The purpose of this discussion aims to strengthen their understanding about what they can do to prevent the virus from spreading and be aware about the current issues around the world as news reports about COVID 19 has been on the rise lately.
At Carpe Diem, we believe in developing the eight innate intelligences of our little legends. Our teachers brought our little ones outdoors to observe the changes in clouds. They also recorded their learnings through a series of paintings.
Outdoor Art Activities
Art gives children an opportunity to express themselves creatively. Painting encourages thought into the choice of colour, patterns and designs. Dipping a brush into colourful paint begins your child’s journey towards a finished masterpiece, where process matters more than the end results!
We believe that it’s important to start the day on a good note. A good stretch is essential in boosting the moods of little ones. After all, yoga enhances flexibility, coordination and strength. It also improves their concentration, calmness and relaxation!
Parachute activities channel children’s energy in creative ways. By working together, kids learn about cooperative play and communication along with taking turns and learning to follow instructions. Repetitive motion and songs also help with developing a sense of rhythm, which in turn can boost cognitive processes.
