Creative Thinking Skills

Language is used for communication. We often have many thoughts or ideas, but experience difficulties when we try to verbalise and communicate these ideas. In today’s knowledge economy, one has to use language to formulate ideas concerning situations and be able to decipher the parts that make up the whole picture. The processes put into thinking and strategising should be learnt so that ideas can be crystallised and effectively communicated.

These strategies are now recognised as an important skill to have for critical enquiry and project work. This book has been divided roughly into three sections. The first section consists of passages which move away from the usual run-of the- mill comprehension texts. They spur the child to think deeply about scenarios. Here, the emphasis is on the child’s process of thought rather than the result. A series of activity-centred exercises is then given to guide the child to use a variety of thinking skills to map the ideas in the passage into a situation that is meaningful to him or her. The child is encouraged to share his/her ideas, summarise information and create new and relevant ideas. By doing so, he/she gains a better understanding of the various nuances involved in everyday language.

Course specifications:

  • Creative Thinking Skills Level 1 for ages 7 to 8
  • Creative Thinking Skills Level 2 for ages 8 to 9
