Promoting The Love Of Literature In Young Children http://thenewageparents.com/promoting-the-love-of-literature-in-young-children/ http://thenewageparents.com/promoting-the-love-of-literature-in-young-children/#comments Wed, 27 May 2015 11:56:08 +0000 http://thenewageparents.com/?p=96045 Over a hundred participants thronged the meeting rooms on 16 May at the Suntec Convention & Exhibition Centre to hear Dr. Aw Guat Poh speak at the third of The Little Skool-house International Early Literacy Seminar series. Dr. Aw is Associate Professor at the National Institute of Education Singapore, and is renowned for her rich experience in training parents and educators on how to teach Chinese as a second language to children.

Literacy Parenting Seminar The Little-Skool House  International

In this seminar series ‘Promoting The Love Of Literature In Young Children’, Dr. Aw delivered her keynote speech; highlighting the importance of supporting Chinese language learning for preschool children and strategies to strengthen language foundation in the young.

Language acquisition and language learning: Know the difference

Dr Aw Guat Poh The Little-skool house parenting seminarMore families are speaking English at home and this is a worrying trend. “Even more children today are expressing the ‘I hate Chinese’ anxiety.” Dr. Aw added. To help children overcome their mental hurdle and pick up Chinese or another second language, parents first need to differentiate between language acquisition and language learning. Once they have done, they need to find ways to encourage the former.

Dr. Aw explained that language acquisition and language learning are both essential in developing a child’s literacy; the former works on the speaking ability and the latter, on the writing skill. While language acquisition happens through natural communication in daily life, language learning requires a well-planned curriculum and plenty of memorisation which is “extremely painful” for any young child.

Because children are considered natural learners, the most ideal way for them to learn a second language is through acquisition first. Dr. Aw advised all parents to expose their children to natural learning environments and real communication situations in order to make learning a meaningful, enjoyable and lifelong process.

Is Your Child A Passive Or Active Learner?

The goal for parents is to develop children to be active second language learners. A passive second language learner would be disinterested in the language and would dislike using it. Some signs are – the child dislikes to converse in Mandarin and does not want to complete his or her Chinese homework. Another trend of the passive second language learner is that they usually score well in other subjects but do poorly when it comes to their second language.

From Passive to Active Learners

Before the lecture came to an end, Dr. Aw reminded the audience to always be committed and firm to request their children to use their second langue at home in order to start the language acquisition process. After the lecture, parents were invited to attend one of three available workshops conducted by literacy development experts. In the series of workshops, all speakers agreed that in order to flourish in their languages, children need unwavering support from parents. Dr. Aw and the other experts concurred that parents can do well to start spending quality time together to learn with their children.

Parenting With Love Seminar 2015 http://thenewageparents.com/parenting-with-love-seminar-prep-your-child-for-p1/ http://thenewageparents.com/parenting-with-love-seminar-prep-your-child-for-p1/#comments Tue, 26 May 2015 12:37:08 +0000 http://thenewageparents.com/?p=96010 On 25 April, The New Age Parents and New Age Pregnancy organized Parenting with Love Seminar: Preparing Your Child For Primary One. With over 100 parents in attendance, the speakers engaged, interacted and shared their insights on their  field of expertise.

Preparing your child for P1 seminar by The New Age Parents

Why is it important to teach our children to be financially savvy? Are kids really able to understand the concept of saving, spending and sharing? One of the new things that will be introduced when children attend Primary One is pocket money.

Our first speaker, Ernest Tan highlighted the importance of teaching our children to be financial savvy and why it was crucial for parents to start these money lessons young. He showed how parents can start to introduce the concepts of sharing, spending and saving even before they go to Primary school.

Ernest sharing more tips with parents after his talk.

Michael, who has a daughter going to Primary School next year shared the same thoughts. “Ernest came across as somebody who really knows what kids need right now. Especially in this age where kids are exposed to a lot of different things, like your iPads, games and toys. I’ve learnt that understanding a little bit of financial savviness is actually quite important and it’s important for parents to start when the kids are young.”

On the next two topics of language learning, speakers from Julia Gabriel and Chengzhu Mandarin Centre suggested useful, applicable and bite size tips on how parents can make learning English and Chinese meaningful and engaging at home. The speakers shared their own anecdotes of how they applied the methods at home with their children, and how it has worked well for them.

Tips for making your child fall in love with chinese

Father of a 2 year old, Zhi Rong acknowledges the struggles parents face in raising a bilingual child. He has tried to speak both languages at home with his child but ends up fumbling sometimes.

“We live in a bilingual society. So sometimes at home I try to speak both English and Chinese but somehow I end up in a ‘crossfire’ myself. After hearing about the ‘One person one language’ method from the Mandarin talk, I will give this a try and leave the English part to my wife, while I speak solely in Chinese.”

The last speaker, Dr Vanessa von Auer from VA Psychology Centre gave an overview of bullying in the 21st century and how it is an increasing epidemic, with the introduction of social media. She gave parents bully-proof strategies and confidence boosting techniques they can teach and use at  home.

The Seminar ended with a token of appreciation to the speakers, and a lucky draw for our parents. Parents also walked away with a goodie bag worth $60 and a special Parenting with Love Seminar Booklet, which covers content of the seminar topics, and other articles to help parents prep their child for Primary One.

New Rule For Primary One Registration 2015 http://thenewageparents.com/new-rule-for-primary-one-registration-2015/ http://thenewageparents.com/new-rule-for-primary-one-registration-2015/#comments Tue, 26 May 2015 03:01:06 +0000 http://thenewageparents.com/?p=95982 According a new ruling by the Ministry of Education, children who secure a place for Primary 1 in 2016 based on the proximity of their homes and the school will have to stay at the declared address for at least two-and-a-half years.

Priority is given first to children who live within 1 kilometre of the school, followed by those who live between 1 and 2 kilometres, and lastly to those who are more than 2 kilometres away if the demand exceeds the vacancies available at a school (Ministry of Education Singapore, 2015).

How To Keep Track Of Your Kids When School Starts

Abuse of Priority Scheme

However, there were instances when this priority scheme was abused by parents in order to get their child into the desired schools.

Earlier this year in March, a 35 year old father lied about where he lived in order to get his daughter into a top primary school. The address he provided to the school’s principal belonged to his uncle’s sister, and had been rented out. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to two weeks in jail. (The Straits Times, 2015)

For Families who have not moved in to their new address

For families who have bought a property that is still in the process of construction and plan to move in after its completion, they are required to live at the new address for at least 30 months starting from the time the family moves into the property.

This means if you register your child in 2015 and you only move into the new address in July 2017, the 30 months stay period starts from July 2017 (MOE website).

For families who are already staying near the school

If you have secured a place for their child in Primary 1 next year due to your home’s proximity, you will have to stay at the declared address for at least 30 months from the start of the registration exercise on July 2.

If the new regulation is not met, MOE reserves the right to transfer the child to another school with vacancies.

How To Help Your Child Be Comfortable With Public Speaking (Part 2) http://thenewageparents.com/help-your-child-be-comfortable-with-public-speaking-part-2/ http://thenewageparents.com/help-your-child-be-comfortable-with-public-speaking-part-2/#comments Mon, 25 May 2015 05:10:37 +0000 http://thenewageparents.com/?p=95534 Public speaking is not emphasized in schools here. But if you think about it, speaking in front of a class can be just as intimidating for children as it is for adults! It is an important life skill to develop.

With effect from 2015, the Ministry of Education will revise it teaching of English at upper Primary school. The focus will shift to Oracy skill, making the students speak the language more confidently and to know how to use it beyond the classroom.

In the new PSLE oral exams, pupils will have to respond to anything from a poster to a map to a biscuit wrapper. Pupils will have to hold a conversation with the examiner, to give their opinions and to say what they think of the situation.

Help Your Child Be Comfortable With Public Speaking

Making a speech in public is not as daunting as sitting for oral exams, since there is only one audience.

However, if you would like to them to public speaking, here are things you can do to bolster their confidence so that your child can give their best.

1. Offer a listening ear

If the speaker asks you to listen while they practise their speech, be generous with your time and do just that. It may be a big moment for them and they need all the help they can get to make it perfect. Offer to take them away from the everyday hustle and bustle to find a quiet spot when they can speak freely without inhibitions.

Then listen. Truly listen.With your ears, your eyes and your mind. Even if you’ve heard the speech a few times before, try to form first impressions of the speaker: what they say and how they say it. Make unobtrusive notes so that you don’t throw the speaker off-track.

Listen to the entire speech, not just part of it so that you don’t form the wrong impression and end up ruining rather than enhancing the speech.

2. Don’t offer unsolicited advice

During the speech, don’t rush to point out mistakes immediately. Be content in noticing and observing and listening. Only when the speaker has finished should you identify their strengths and weaknesses.

3. Be gentle and positive

Remind the speaker that your feedback is only your opinion. Find and start with a positive point – the topic, the subject matter, the opening line, the closing note, the quotations, the examples, the voice, the jokes, or the body language. Speak about it with enthusiasm. Buoy up their spirit.

Later, when touching upon improvement areas, never tease, taunt or look down upon the speaker. Stick to the facts, be impersonal and talk politely but plainly. No one likes to hear criticism but no one will get offended by a sensible critique.

4. Be genuine

Feedback that is insincere is useless and helps neither the giver nor the taker. Believe in what you say. Backing your thoughts with solid evidence and data makes it more worthwhile.

5. Don’t berate

If the final speech doesn’t go well, the speaker is already going to be upset, hurt or embarrassed. Don’t make them feel worse by heaping on an “I told you so”. Sympathise, support and help them snap out of it by pointing out that losing one battle does not mean the war is lost. There are sure to be plenty more opportunities and with practice, they can only get better.

6. Get help

Professional orators must invest time and effort in studying the art and science of speaking. An expert guide or mentor can provide valuable tips on its many aspects, and design a comprehensive development programme. For amateur speakers, supporters can offer to research a subject, edit and proof-read the speech, video a practise session for reviewing later, etc.

My initial setback in public-speaking was not all gloom and doom for me. My love for the English language manifested itself in another way – writing. While giving me the same pleasure, confidence and a comfortable anonymity from having my audience assess the words instead of the wordsmith, writing can be as impactful, influential and far-reaching as speaking.

Will I ever go looking for a chance to conquer my demons and make a formal public speech again?

I don’t know. But I do know that when my daughter is standing up there behind the podium, I will have been there with her every step of the way.

For me, my child will always be a winner.
