Gingerbread cookie in a jar!
This Bean masters class made them very excited, as the little ones had a jar with numbers and they filled it with gingerbread cookies.
The kids took a cookie with a gingerbread and droped it on the written number following the instructions of the teacher.
This was a good physical interaction play for the advancement of motor skills.
They were so much involved in order not to put the cookie on a different number other than one shown by the teacher.
This activity required a lot of concentration and it helped to improve focus a lot.

During their Phonic class kids traced letter “r”.
They all started by choosing their favorite color.
Their fine motor, literacy, language and communication skills were enhanced.
This was great to practice pencil control on paper.

What an awesome week to learn more about five senses.

See It! Hear It! Do It! Touch It!

The use of Multisensory instruction was fun for kids today! The most effective way for children to learn is to engage the visual, auditory, kinesthetic and tactile pathways to their little brains. This helps them connect ideas and retain information. Kids had their various senses displayed and were led to act one after the other.

What’s that smell?

Kids were further enlightened on the sense of smell. They had some lotion with a beautiful smell as well as some paint to mix with in order to make a flower. Over time, they will recognize certain smells as comforting, yummy, scary, exciting, to help them in their world.

Pre-numeracy the skills!

Through play, children develop their creativity skills as well as imaginative skills. They were led to bawl down some numbers. They tried so hard to get a number down after which they had to call out that number. Through this, they exercised key skills and qualities for daily living.
