FLAiR – November Learning Circle cum Year-end Celebrations

About 380 Pro-FLAiRs attended the Learning Circle facilitated by their Advocates on 25 November 2020 virtually. It was the last learning circle of the year and it was the time for celebration too! We launched the ebook entitled “Creative Minds during COVID CB – The FLAiR Family”. We had so much fun and laughter donning our party hats, sipping tea/coffee, singing and end the 2020 FLAiR on a high note with FLAiR Family!

Learning with Children – Reflections of Preschool 

Session One Topic: Physical Education & Outdoor

7 October 2020, 8 to 9 pm (Singapore Time)

In Singapore, when conducting physical play, many preschools are facing the constraint of space and equipment. The role of the teacher is to understand the potential of materials and the outdoor environment has for learning and seek a way for children to harness them.

Session Two Topic: The Practice of Home-Preschool Collaboration 

14 October 2020, 8 to 9 pm (Singapore Time)

A philosophy of collaboration is for both parties to have a common understanding of the needs of the children for learning. Educators not only have to find suitable strategies to communicate to families but also to equip themselves with new skills under the contexts of the pandemic.
