Introduction of Alphabet:

In the month of July, the children were introduced to the alphabet A, B, C, and D. Each
alphabet was introduced based on an activity done by the children which would help in
enhancing their early language skills in which they would be able to co-relate the letter
to its sound, picture to the word and help in recognition of alphabet.

Every individual child was made to repeat the sound of the alphabet as the activity was

Letter A Activity:

For the Alphabet A, an Alligator was
drawn and the children were made to
stick the pencil shavings on it.

Letter B Activity:
A small balloon was blown and a picture of a big balloon was drawn and the children

The birds chirping in the morning, pages of a book
turning in the class room, or the buzz of a bee flying
by can now be heard. It can open up a whole new
world of sounds and vocabulary words for children
to begin to become familiar with.

Putting together a collection of items that make
different noises is a great way to introduce sounds
to the pre-schoolers. From animal noises to musical
instruments and jingling keys, children will enjoy
discovering soft sounds, loud sounds, short sounds
and long sounds.

Letter C Activity:

The children had to decorate a cake with candle, coloured sand, coloured paper, cotton
and crayon shaving.

Magic Painting (Colour Activity):

Colour is a visual perceptual property of any object. Children loves bright colours. To
stimulate the young brains demands patience and creativity. Crayon resist art has been
around since we were kids.

It’s a timeless craft for kids that they’ll have fun doing over and over again! It’s amazing
how a child’s creativity is expressed through the use of white crayon. It’s a really simple
process, but the kids are amazed when they saw their names hidden in white crayon
appear when they painted over with watercolours.

Time is a difficult concept for children to understand. They start to get an idea of how
time passes thanks to the different situations they encounter in their day-to-day life,
such as eating hours, daily habits or the switch from day to night. The fact that these
events occur in a certain order helps the little ones to get a better understanding of
time and how important it is. Learning about seasons of the year and their transition
helps kids better comprehend how time works.

Seasons' changes are very distinct in certain parts of the world, and this is a thing that
the little ones notice from a young age. Children happily anticipate to play with the
fallen leaves during autumn or to make the best and most awesome snow figures
when winter comes. Not to mention the excitement when summer is almost there, and
the opportunity to go to the beach arises! Or some little ones are excited to see the
plants growing stronger and flowers blooming during the spring season.

The best way to teach children is the characteristics of each season so they can easily
differentiate them.

Children were given the pictures related to rainy season to colour.
Mystery Box:
The Mystery box is a versatile and essential material in early childhood. The Mystery box
is simply a box in which the teacher places objects that the students cannot see. The
students then use their sense of touch to explore the object from the box. Objects
starting from the letter sound ‘A’ has been placed inside the mystery box and the
children explored.

Splash pool:

Water play is an inevitable part of pre-school curriculum as it helps in gross motor
development, eye hand co-ordination and also helps in vocabulary development.

Bubbling with excitement and enthusiasm, in their colorful swim suits the children
thoroughly enjoyed the splash pool activity, jumping in the water and splashing water at
their friends.

 It takes more muscle strength to move arms and legs through water.
 Water play allows children to explore and interact with each other. As children

play, they will be excited to communicate their discoveries to everyone around
them. This is a confidence booster for kids! Because water play typically occurs in
a limited space with few supplies, children practice sharing with each other and
working together while engaging in play.
 It develops muscles and motor skills and helps improve coordination.

 Children learn how to coordinate both sides of their body to move through the

Free play:
Free Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination,
dexterity, and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength.

 Play is important to healthy brain development. It is through play that children at
a very early age engage and interact in the world around them.

 Kids aren’t getting enough Vitamin D, an essential vitamin, just by drinking milk.
The sun provides a free and natural way to reap these benefits and more:
preventing heart disease and building strong bones. Be sure to increase Vitamin D
in your child’s diet to reach the desired amount of 400 International Units per

 By putting educational equipment
outdoors, children are soon
learning through play, which is a
fun way of helping children to
learn new information and skills.

 Children will be more willing to
join in games and activities, while
they will also be more likely to
talk to different children and
make new friends.

 Children learn how to take turns
playing games, to pick themselves
up then they fall, and how to
negotiate unfamiliar equipment,
resulting in children learning how
to be independent and self-

Role Play
Role Play is a very important part of a child’s education. The imagination is a powerful
tool which as we know is innate in some children but needs encouraging in others. It is
important that preschools provide children with the opportunity to develop their
imagination. This enhances intellectual development and improves children’s social;
skills and their creativity.
Children were given stick puppets of Father, Mother, Brother and Sister for their role
play during “My Family” class time.

Paper Tearing and Pasting Activity:
This activity is extremely fun and also necessary for the development of children's finger
muscles. Tearing paper helps children to enhance their grip on the paper with their
fingers, increases hand strength and also makes way for more complicated actions like
opening and closing zippers.
Children enjoyed doing tearing and pasting in their Pre-Skills book. They pasted the torn
craft paper on the picture of a Cow.

Scissor Activity:
Cutting gives young children independent movements of each finger. Cutting with
scissors works on the separation of two sides of the hand and strengthens hand
muscles. Bilateral coordination is also addressed when they have to hold the scissors in
one hand and paper in the other.

There are many benefits to cutting with scissors, including:
 Independent movements of each finger
 Strengthens hand muscles
 Bilateral coordination skills (two-handed coordination)

P a g e | 26

 Visual motor skills (eye-hand coordination)
 Visual perceptual tasks (directionality)
 Fine motor skills (separation of hand, finger dexterity)
 Promotes grasp pattern
 Focus and attention


Children love music. A catchy song is sure to get them singing and dancing to the new
tune. Singing is a great way to teach basic skill concepts, prober behaviour as well as
social skills. Nursery rhymes put to music are fun for children.

Children enjoyed their singing session with their music teacher Mrs. Sharon.
