We employ a literature-based, trans-disciplinary thematic approach to design and teach our curriculum.
With the introduction of carefully selected literature or storybooks, a wide range of themes, issues and problems are weaved into our curriculum framework. Through the lapbooking process, students get to apply knowledge and skills acquired from our specially designed Math, Science and Language Art activities simultaneously to interpret, analyse and solve the themes and problems they experience in every lesson.
We take meticulous care to ensure every lesson is engaging and relevant with plenty of learning through play, yet sufficiently challenging to stretch every child's potential and capabilities.
Our curriculum opens our students' eyes to the world they live in and equip them with the necessary skills and knowledge to thrive.
Benefits of This Approach
Applies, Integrates, and Transfers Knowledge
With a traditional teaching method, while students learn the content in core subject areas, they rarely learn to apply their knowledge effectively in thinking and reasoning. Our approach provides a meaningful way in which students can use knowledge learned in one context as a knowledge base in other contexts.
Our approach motivates students to want to learn. When students participate in inter-disciplinary experiences, they are more actively engaged and they see the relevance of what they are learning.
Through the process of lapbooking, it greatly increases a young child's motivation to learn as they are involved in every step of the creation of their personal lapbook.
Students learn more when they use the language arts skills to explore what they are learning, write about what they are learning, and interact with their classmates, teachers, and members of the community.
The lapbooks which the students make at each lesson further enhances and reinforces the learning experience, both during and after lessons.
With the unique and purposeful combination of trans-disciplinary thematic learning approach and lapbooking, a young child's learning journey is delivered with effective and fun-filled experiences that are relevant to his daily world.
