Workshops

An old Englishman once told me that the family of Joe Baker were bakers, and that of Joe Carpenter were carpenters, and that’s how their family names came about. Parents imparted their family trade, wisdom and values to their children. 

That is my wish for you, that you can be empowered with confidence to impart to your own children. I believe that learning and family life can be lived out in tandem, and is within the reach of most families that desire to enjoy their own children, especially during their early years. In this session, I want to share with you some math conversations that I had with my son in our PSLE journey that led him to ace PSLE Math with an A*, and how we did so with little drills. I want to shock you with how simple, enjoyable and cheap our journey was. 

If you have a child between ages 1 and 11, do come and learn together.

What would you get out of it? 

You will learn simple tips and tweaks that will make a big difference in your child’s journey in the world of Math. I will show you how you can convert fragmented bits of family time such as bus journeys and hawker centres visits into engaging math conversations with your child, and in doing so, save money on expensive long-term external math tuition.

Who is Wendy Koh? 

Wendy Koh homeschooled her son through PSLE to the IGCSE exams.  She is passionate about helping other parents conduct short, productive and fun-filled conversations on math topics with their children that can help them through school.

WORKSHOP #1
Basic Numeracy
(Chapters 1 to 9 of Fun-filled Math Conversations With Your Child)

Studies have shown that children learn the most before age 6, thus making this period the best time for them to acquire basic numeracy skills.  Given their very short attention span, I will share on how you can engage them with 3 minute lessons.  We will cover math language, quantities, basic operations and symbols. 

Suitable for parents with children aged 1 to 10.

WORKSHOP #2 – Measurement 
(Chapters 10 to 17 of Fun-filled Math Conversations With Your Child)

What’s there to measure? How to make a tool out of everyday objects? How to continue the conversation after they learn to read the measurement?

Suitable for parents with children aged 5 and above.

WORKSHOP #3
Geometry
(Chapters 1 to 9 of Fun-filled Math Conversations With Your Child)

I will show you how you can condition your child to see patterns and shapes, and share simple strategies to re-organise and simplify complex diagrams.

Suitable for parents with children aged 7 and above.

WORKSHOP #4 – Algebra, Heuristics, Challenging Questions(Chapters 25 to 30 of Fun-filled Math Conversations With Your Child)

How to teach algebra? What is heuristics? What are the elements of a challenging question?  I will touch on these questions, and share on how you can help you child be nimble in his thinking skills.

Suitable for parents with children aged 7 and above.

WORKSHOP #5
An Overview of PSLE Math

In this workshop, I will share my view on what MOE is testing for based on their syllabus for the Primary 1 cohort of 2013 (PSLE year 2018), and how we can generally prepare our children for PSLE Math.
