theme of the month – Insects
The month of September was all about grasshoppers, ants, bees, butterflies and ladybugs!!
A lot of excitement was abuzz as children spotted, collected and even brought a few insects for Show & Tell. Apart from the learning on insects, children enjoyed art, pottery, rhymes & songs. Altogether an exciting theme in which all children enjoyed participating.
The children learnt about the life cycle of a butterfly through videos, stories and picture books. They were always delighted in the end to see the metamorphosis of the caterpillar into a pretty butterfly.
The story of “The Hungry Caterpillar” held the attention of the children as they did a picture walk through the book and listened with interest and active participation to the much-loved story.
With insects being the theme of the month the cookery class too saw enthusiastic chefs create ‘bug snacks’– it sure was fun!
Nana-Nanis, Dada- Dadis participated enthusiastically during our Grandparents Day celebrations. They encouraged our little ones as they engaged in different activities and games in the classrooms. Thank You Grandparents for making the day so special for us!
Side by side or far apart,
Our grandparents are always in our hearts
“Ramlila” (the story of Lord Ram) was enacted by the children of Little Pearls. The practice sessions were filled with fun and laughter as each child essayed their role with great enthusiasm. They showcased their talent as they spoke their dialogues, sang and danced as they rehearsed for the grand show! Photographs of the show will be available soon. Please contact the reception for the same.
Understanding the concept of ‘Show and Tell’ with parent-teacher involvement
The topics given for ‘Show and Tell’ have been covered in the class in great detail – we have talked about them, done related art work, played games and lots more to reinforce the concept.The main purpose of this activity is to encourage children to develop :-
Communication and listening skills
Now, we are sending it home to parents. As a parent it gives you an opportunity to bond with your child to get to know what your child has been learning at school- (topics given in work plan)
You as a parent and the child work together to create a small/short presentation of the topic, e.g. for the number 5, you may cut out pictures from an old magazine of animals, fruits, etc, stick them on a sheet of paper to represent the number (This is only a suggestion, you are free to use your creativity with the child). Help the child learn a line or two related to the concept as the child can then speak about it in school e.g. My name is……….I have 5 fingers 1-2-3-4-5. Also write this in the school diary so that the teacher can support the child in school on the specified day. Please do keep the activity simple to ensure that the child is the main participant in preparing for the activity
