Home-based Learning Resources by My First Skool

My First Skool My First Skool is one of the leading preschools in Singapore providing holistic and quality curriculum. During this circuit-breaker period, their teachers have put together a series of interactive home-based learning resources to support their children’s learning at home. There are a variety of age- appropriate resources tailored to children aged zero to six years old. For example, a good activity to keep young children aged zero to three engaged at home will be the making of music shakers using recycled materials. This activity provides a good opportunity for the child to practise their fine motor skills as well as grasp the concept of upcycling. What’s more, the child will have a sense of achievement when they use the music shakers they make to dance along to their favourite rhymes. In addition, parents can visit this page to view videos of their teachers conducting interactive storytelling sessions and creative ideas on how to teach simple maths concepts like addition through board games. Worrying about what to cook at home? You can also learn from their very own My First Cook on how to make simple and nutritious meals and snacks for your young ones. Visit their page today for the unique My First Skool home-based learning experience.
