PlayFACTO pre-Kids 5 Step Learning
Each class starts with joyful singing of the pre-Kids Song. The song is expected to help young learners focus their attention to start the class.
These educational materials are designed to introduce learners to what they will be taught at today’s class. The materials guide the children to the world of math through a variety of interesting stories where they can experience diverse mathematical situations and accept and express vocabulary and concepts of math spontaneously. *Play the pre-Kids Song and story aids through animations for more engagement!
Learners are guided to the situation in worksheets through a short story.
The story told to the learners about the situation in the worksheets stimulate the children’s capacity to think and experience a variety of mathematical situations. Provided with a different episode for each learning session, the stories also help the learners expand background knowledge and use mathematical thoughts in their daily lives.
Kids learn while playing with toys.
In this stage learners are stimulated to increase their curiosity through playing with educational toys, constructing and understanding various mathematical principles on their own. They are guided to play a more active, and independent role in this learning process. The active physical movements involved during the stage also help them improve communication skills and capacity to teach themselves which typically yields better results.
Worksheets help learners deepen and systematize what they learned.
Worksheets are designed to help children combine different mathematical concepts obtained through story aids and toy activities and express them in a systematic manner. The activity with worksheets involves using various visual, symbolic images which are designed to form and internalize mathematical concepts obtained in the earlier activities. This learning process also encourages learners to think and respond positively and express their ideas more actively.
Each learning process ends with a special finale during which learners are guided to tidy their “classroom” by putting their learning materials back to the box where they are stored until the next session. This stage of finishing offers children one more opportunity to observe the learning aids and remind what they learned with fun activities.
