A fun activity in the Kg1 class is called Alphabet Bone Search. The teacher calls out a letter and the children feed the dog with a bone that has the correct letter on it! The game develops use of fine motor skills, concentration and letter recognition.
The children of KG1, spent the morning in the garden gathering leaves to make a collage.
It encouraged them to collect the leaves, observe their different textures, sort them by shapes and colors, discuss what kind of trees the leaves come from, create a composition of a tree on a big sheet, and preserve their leaves. We also encouraged the children to learn to appreciate the beauty of so many different shades of colors.
The activity was a great hit among the preschoolers.
Happy New Year and welcome back to Storytime Preschool.
It was good to see the children back at school again and how each and everyone has settled in so quickly. Our teachers have already planned and prepared ahead lots of fun and educational lessons and activities for Term 2. Most of our lessons are integrated with exciting monthly themes and below are few activities we have started.
Theme study: Animals. For the 1st & 2nd week, the Nursery Classes discussed farm animals, followed by shapes and artwork, where we focused on ovals and made the face of a chicken. To make it more lively, we combined it with our Song of the Month – “Old Mac Donald Had A Farm”. We then played a shape game by making a barn using square sticks to make a fence.
Using Communication and Vocabulary Skills
Arya is concentrating while she begins to talk about the wooden cake she brought to school for Show and Tell.
Richard is showing his new pencil case to his friends.
During science class we had our eyes closed and were asked to pick different containers with different foods. We then had to guess what was in each container by smelling them. We used our skills of concentration, imagination and our senses for this fun game!
One of our fun and practical activities at school is Grocery Store Role Play.
Some of the skills used here are imagination, gross motor skill and confidence!
Here the children are learning how to shop at a grocery store. They are picking fruits and vegetables to put into their baskets and paying with play money at the cashier counter.
