CoronaVirus. The virus seem to be picking up more victims and spreading faster. Singapore has raised the Dorscon (Disease Outbreak Response System Condition) level to Orange. It is just one level from Red. The disease is spreading at an alarming rate as people with no contact are also falling ill to this virus. There is a general panic among Singaporeans and the supermarket shelfs are being cleared out at an alarming rate. They are so afraid that there could be a lock down also in Singapore. So parents are once again advised that even a slight flu symptom, should be treated not lightly and your child should not come to school.
The children started each day learning to greet each other, and started learning “how are you?” And the correct way to answer, according to how they feel, “I’m great, how are you?” and how to talk further about their emotions “I’m excited today because tomorrow I will go to the beach.” each day we learn about emotions and what makes them feel that way, so they can learn to connect with each other and express why they feel a certain way. This allows them to express their feeling and feel connected both to the teachers and the other students. We reenacted facial expressions to help the children understand how to read the emotions of characters in books and with the people they see every day.
For Thai class the children sang along to Thai consonants song, and practiced speaking and pronouncing the Thai alphabet using flash cards. The children practiced their colors in Thai but looking at color books. They kept trying to say the colors in English and were also excited to also say the colors in Thai. The children played matching games to practice their colors, and then used colored paper to match to pictures.
In Chinese nursery class, the children counted Chinese numbers and listened to Chinese songs. The children practiced vocabulary by looking at flash cards and repeating after the teacher. The children were excited to learn new words and apply it when doing exercises in the activity book.
