“Come, Let’s Celebrate! Preschool Interactive Art Book” provides children the experiences of Singapore’s festival and cultures. It contains reusable stickers to reenacted scenes of festivals, like donning traditional costumes, eating festive food, visiting the homes of other ethnic groups, as well as travelling in Singapore. This book includes 3D art materials for children, which can be a handy teaching tool for teachers and parents. The ready-made art work will ease the adults' burden of preparing art work materials. Parents and children can make use of the book together to enhance parent-child relationship.
Parents and teachers can also refer to the corresponding book, "Come, Let's Celebrate! Preschool Teaching Activities and Evaluation for Festivals of Singapore”, that stemmed from Tyler’s objective-centered model to provide lesson examples related to festivals of Singapore’s diverse ethnicities and cultures. It aims to propose a framework and approach to teaching activities related to such festivals. General knowledge and guiding values in early childhood education are embedded in the introductions of these festivals, and these are followed by accessible background reading and several suggested teaching activities. Early childhood teachers can modify and extend the activities of a specific festival for other festivals as well. To provide teachers with evaluation tools, each teaching activity also contains a suggested assessment based on different learning areas.
This art book also complements a set of “Come, Let’s Celebrate! Preschool Teaching Resources for Festivals of Singapore” teaching tools linked to the thirteen important festivals celebrated in Singapore. The tools include six medium-sized backgrounds that could be used for classroom decorations, four larger-sized stage backdrops, and close to a hundred elements that could be used for story-telling, role-playing and language games.
