PSE 5 mins Goodbye Time Features of Half Day Lesson Plans Same structure, different activities (that help to achieve various goals) Flexible time frames- some activities end up being longer or shorter than others Subjects often overlap goals Same activities for children, but at different levels- individualised Evaluation Evaluation *sorting of clothes- concept of same, same item?, same exactly?--> concept was difficult for children, try to give exact same to avoid

confusion *family tree- worked very well. Counting activity + family vocabulary. Individualized tree. *Friday PE- also communication + language goals *skittles game- effective, turn taking + counting + group game language practice pronouns my turn, your turn Evaluation of the Curriculum Pros: Content ensures learning is all-rounded Staff have guidelines to provide a holistic program Standardized dev. milestones provided Establishes CDC as a centre; recognized curriculum Sparked more positive changes e.g. curriculum board, transparent goals

More evaluation Cons Time consuming Expensive to learn, confusing at times Old habits die hard Sometimes can be blinded by curriculum goals Strike a balance between goals and reality Sitting down vs Learning numbers Q&A Thank you for staying Happy Chinese New Year
