MindChamps Reading & Writing

Introducing MindChamps Reading Enrichment Programme at Kallang

MindChamps Brian Caswell

Developed by International Literacy and Early Childhood Experts with over 300 years of combined experience, MindChamps Reading & Writing Programme is the brainchild of the expert team led by Brian Caswell – Dean of Research and Programme Development, MindChamps.

 Brian has more than 40 years of success in the areas of education and literacy, as well as author of over 100 Reading Books, 110 phonics books and 50-60 novels for young children.

The Reading Programme (3 - 7 years old)

Building confidence is one of the key focus areas of developing your child into a skilled reader. This involves helping your child by:

  • Generating interest and desire to read – Through positive motivation, your child will develop genuine interest and excitement to read. Since practice makes perfect, the more your child reads, the more fluent he/she will become at it.
  • Giving clear phonics instruction – Word sounds are taught by blending graphemes and phomemes, as part of MindChamps’ formulated Integrated Phonics approach. This enables your child to understand the meaning and context of each word, so he/she becomes more confident in expressing him/her self.
  • Listening and reading comprehension – Using written and oral comprehension techniques, your child will be able to boost his/her understanding of what is being read.
  • Regular feedback – An intricate feedback system is obtained for your child through literacy assessments at the beginning and end of each programme, on a weekly basis. As parents, you will be able to track how well your child is progressing and also serves as a motivational tool to encourage your child to achieve more.
  • Providing support for home learning – Your child will be provided with eBooks an agile tool that enables him/her to practice reading skills at home. For parents, workshops are also conducted for you to learn the best strategies in supporting your child’s reading at home.

What if, in all this time, we have been learning to read the wrong way?

Survey show that
87%
of adults do not
truly enjoy reading

We have all been taught to read aloud, memorise sounds through attending phonic class or to extract meaning from letters and words. We could ask ourselves, do we – by increasing the volume and reading louder achieve anything? Instead, what if we were to think about the words we are reading, consider the author’s ideas and all the while engage our emotions?

At MindChamps, we call this Immersive Reading for Active Understanding.

Once we lay this foundation for reading, the ability to write well naturally follows. “Learning to read and write are the two most crucial skills young learners need to master. Their entire education depends on them being skilled and confident readers and writers.” – Professor Kathy Hirsh – Pasek & Roberta Golinkoff, authors of the award winning Einstein never used Flashcards.

Prior to acquiring a love for reading and writing children must first tread the path to engagement and enjoy the process. Research shows that young children who develop a ‘love for stories’ by the age of seven, are transformed into active and skill readers for life!
