“The Power of Language” Workshop

Part 1:
Parent Seminar –
Wittgenstein’s quote, “the limits of my language is the limit of my world” profoundly underscores Kendall’s belief that ability without language is a life unfulfilled. Language is powerful and giving children this gift is perhaps fundamental to their academic and social success. More than content knowledge, technical ability or even strength of computation – language is the ‘glue’ that connects people to thoughts, ideas, meaning and society.

Speaker:Dr. Wil Chan – Founder and Director of Kendall International Preschool

Part 2:
Parent Workshops
Music: A Child’s First Language
There is clear research on the connection between elements of music and language acquisition. A child’s natural tendency toward syncopation, rhythm and ‘call-response’ can easily be captured to foster phonics, vocabulary and receptive/expressive language skills. Ms Colette, Kendall’s music educator will lead parents through a range of activities to demonstrate this powerful connection!

Conversational Reading: (English and Putonghua)
It is common knowledge that the ability to read is the best predictor of a child’s future school success. Parents can ‘super-charge’ their child’s abilities through the use of ‘conversational reading’ strategies that promote the use of open-ended questions designed to foster thinking, reflection and a new level of comprehension and curiosity! Kendall’s Ms Karen and Chen Laoshi will use common readers available to demonstrate this amazing parent-child activity!
