PCF Sparkletots Preschool (Central) Learning Day
Date: September 6, 2018
Venue: Kebun Baru Community Club
We were not sure if we were working with a comfortable group of 62 teachers or a cohort of 620 teachers! The facilitators were fed by the extremely high level of energy and unlimited amount of enthusiasm from the teachers who work with children from Nursery 2 to Kindergarten 2. We sang our hearts out and moved and grooved to different genres of music, ranging from pop songs to cultural music.
The music and movement professional development that was held last 6th of September provides us with knowledge and techniques in teaching.
The speakers were all highly knowledgeable and passionate on the topic and the skills that were taught to us and can really be done in the classroom. It will also be useful when it comes to teaching children. Though for me, I still need time to develop my own techniques in teaching music and movement to my children at least I’ve already had an idea on what and how to execute the lesson.
I know that music and movement is a subject that is really fun to teach but I didn’t know that it will be that meaningful and exciting until I get to be at the said PD. If we, teachers enjoyed, what more of the children. I think that they will also have so much fun while learning.
Lavina’s class is fun, engaging and interesting. It helps us to learn variety of ways to conduct music and movement activities. She helps us to better understand how to improvise and do music and movement activities in a fun interactive way with the children. She teaches us to be creative and ignite curiousity (different types of percussion instruments, body percussion and different types of materials) and excitement with the children when doing music and movement activities.
Never a dull moment in the class. It was an enriching and enjoyable training indeed! Lavina taught us to think out of the box to suit different level and needs of the age group we are teaching. Learning useful tips that are helpful in our classroom. Another class with you, perhaps?! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼😉
As an adult, I felt captivated by the music lesson that was taught by Lavina. I enjoyed myself to the fullest as I learnt about making beats and using body percussion among other things! Even though I’m not musically inclined, I had so much fun as I learnt new things! I would highly recommend it to people of all ages! They would surely learn a lot and have lots of fun as well!
