To equip preschool educators with the skills to teach about our distinctive Chinese Singaporean culture through food, language and customs, we have collaborated with Ngee Ann Polytechnic Chinese Media & Communication to develop age-appropriate resources such as The Learning Kid!
The Learning Kid is a kit with sensory materials such as handmade puppets, story-telling cards and yusheng “ingredients”. Preschool educators may use The Learning Kid prior to or after your visit to the SINGAPO人 exhibition.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request for use of this kit. Please note that The Learning Kid can only be used in the Centre. Download the Teacher’s Manual which consists of Lesson Plans and resources to be used together with The Learning Kid.
The JangandFox comic series explores the 10 values cherished by the Chinese — Loyalty (忠), Filial Piety (孝), Kindness (仁), Love (爱), Courtesy (礼), Righteousness (义), Honesty (廉), Shame (耻), Thrift (俭), and Perseverance (毅). These values are depicted by adorable characters that bring these values to life!
In our SINGAPO人 exhibition, we will be exploring our distinctive Chinese Singaporean culture through food, language and customs. To prepare educators
for a self-guided visit to the exhibition, we have specially prepared a Guide for Educators for free download and use prior to your visit.
