Our main goal at the kindergarten level is to help students develop their literacy in English, mainly in speaking. We aim at developing their lexical repertoire through stories, songs and other activities, so the children are able to interact in an English-speaking environment.
We are also keen on developing the other language skills for our children. We have a scope and sequence that develops the phonemic awareness of children from the word comparison to the phoneme deletion and manipulation. In KG1, children are exposed to the sounds of English where they build their phonemic awareness and then start matching the sounds with meanings. Later, throughout the year, they can match the sounds with prints and develop an acceptable proficiency level. In KG2, teachers take the children to a higher level in which they keep building their phonemic awareness, but they offer a wide range of activities that help the children develop speaking in English. The teachers enrich the children’s vocabulary, leading to better speaking skills.
We know that children are in fond of stories. We have scheduled classes for reading in which there is a set of stories selected carefully for each age of our children. The teachers read stories with the children in class and encourage them to read at home. The teachers are trained on reading stories where they implement emotional, cognitive, and linguistic techniques to develop the language skills for children.
During the global pandemic where schools are on and off, we were very keen from the beginning to be as much emotional as possible and keep the children’s interest in learning. So, we adopted a flipped classroom approach where the teacher prepares and offers learning materials to children that they can go through on their own and/or with a little bit of help from their parents, and then come to the online or in-person classes for a more engaging and fun learning environment.
Understanding the world
We believe that children love to speak about their home and past experiences and begin to form their understanding on their culture. We use technology to explore the world around them. That is through the interactive whiteboards and other technological facilities that we offer at school.
