Dropping objects in water🛶 and checking if they sink🪨 or float is almost magical.✨
Our Little Investigators🧑🏻🔬🔎 of UKG 🎊tried an engrossing float and sink activity.🤩 The classroom was buzzing with joy, fun and excitement.🎊 This is a great activity for kids to understand which objects float or sink and why. 🔎🪨
In this activity, children investigated, explored and discovered why objects were floating and sinking in the water. 📤📥🪨
This activity enables the child to promote scientific thinking such as cause and effect, observation, comparison, reasoning and experimentation. 🤹🏻♀️👨🏻🏭🧑🏻🔬
It also helps in language development by introducing various objects that can sink or float. It also enhanced coordination and controlled hand-eye movement.📥📤
It was a fun-filled learning experience for the students.✨🎊
Our little scientists👩🏻🔬🧑🏻🔬 of UKG were thrilled to perform experiments on soluble 🥛🧊🧂 and insoluble 🥥🌹 substances .
This activity was designed to stimulate observation, 🧐 sensory skills 👌🏻and thinking skills 🤔amongst the students.☺️
They were awestruck 🤩to see how substances were mixing and not mixing in water. 😃
It’s rightly said, 'there is no better way of learning than through hands on activities.' 🎊
The change ➡️from winter❄️ to summer☀️ to rainy ⛈️ is a great way to talk 💬to the preschoolers about the different seasons in a year.
The seasons were introduced by discussing ✨the clothes they wear , the food and fruits they eat ,the drinks and the activities related to the different seasons.
To enhance their learning about the seasons,our smarty pants of nursery did various activities on 19th January'23💦 such as ☑️pasting cotton ☃️on snowman, ☑️making sun 🌞 with origami papers , ☑️clouds and rain drops🌧️.
🔸By these activities we found out that our children already know about the seasons and it also provided some background knowledge📖 to our tiny tots. 🔅They had great fun while doing this activity . 🥳
*Whether the little ones are seeing real animals, reading about them or doing projects related to them, they always seem to be drawn to activities that involve animals* . 🐈🐕🦺🐰🐶
Our kids have explored different animals i.e Wild animals(🐅🦓🦍🐘)
Farm Animals (🐪🦒🦘🐏🐑) and
Water Animals (🐠🐬🦀🦐🐋).
They have also learnt about their habitat 🏚️🏞️ and their sounds.
To help them to recall and retain what they have learnt, a sorting activity of *Wild 🏞️, Farm 🎑and Water 🌊 animals* was conducted for the Nursery kids on *Saturday 28thJanuary' 23*. They also sang rhymes and enjoyed this fun activity.
💫 *Building words is imperative to becoming a great reader 📖 and writer✍️.*
✨ CVC Words are particularly important, as they are the foundation for putting beginning ,middle and ending letter sound knowledge 🔡 to test as students blend and speak out words🔤.
