It is said that a child’s life is like a piece of paper on which every passerby leaves a mark. I believe that some concluding remarks emerge from creative thinking e.g. a tale, poem, painting and melody. To bring more colours to a child’s world, unleash their creativity, promote their understanding of aesthetics, and gain some new perspectives and breakthroughs in my educational career. I have succeeded in using picture books to integrate six learning areas in the preschool curriculum, namely, Language, Early Childhood Mathematics, Self and Society, Arts and Creativity, Physical Fitness and Health, and Nature and Living. I have been able to design a school-based art curriculum by utilizing art teaching strategies. I have formulated diversified and interesting learning activities to motivate students to express themselves, unleash their creativity and facilitate their spontaneous learning.
I received the 2017/2018 Chief Executive’s Award for Teaching Excellence as recognition of my promotion of a school-based art curriculum. There is no specified starting point in creating art. Every child has different capabilities, interests and needs to create – they each have own starting point. When I discovered that young children enjoy reading picture books, I used picture books to help them learn by reading stories and cultivating their creativity through reading. This includes their daily routines and interests, unleashing their imagination with the contents and graphics of the tale, and blending the six learning areas with art components for integrated and consistent learning experiences and optimizing creativity unleashed.
I have been a pioneer of school-based curricular development over the years. Because of this, I have been promoting an illustration book curriculum and teaching a general art curriculum. As the new director of TWGHs Lee Wong Hing Cheung Memorial Kindergarten in charge of supervision of the school curricular development, and on the basis of illustration book teaching, I will lead the professional teaching crew. I will also develop a sustainable school-based general art curriculum, foster preschool pupils’ love of art and life, and unleash their creativity, and make a new generation full of creativity and confidence.
