Jr. Kg – October and November 2016

Theme for the month: Going Green

Have you ever taken your child for a nature walk? He/She will love to pick up, look at, explore and question about leaves, nuts, twigs, rocks – just about anything he/she finds. Thus, knowledge about plants naturally lays the groundwork for future scientific learning and understanding. Plants have an easy-to-understand life cycle. They have four basic parts – roots, stem, leaves and flowers – children of this age can easily remember and identify them.

Through this theme your child will learn about varied aspects of a plant and its growth, and will be more aware about the specific characteristics of the parts of the plant. He/She will also learn how plants need to be nurtured and how to tend a garden, to identify different gardening tools and implements and will learn the importance of water, sunlight and soil for plant growth.

Effective usage of Audio Visual learning, technology, art and craft and role plays will be the methodology used.


Your child will learn the letters ‘Uu’, ‘Ll’, ‘Ff’, and ‘Bb’ with their phonic sounds, how to blend and read 3 letter words and learn tricky words: to, do, are. Along with these, various activities like rhymes and stories, show and tell, picture talk, book browsing and newspaper reading will be done on a regular basis.

Do reinforce the use of tricky words: was, be, my, we.


There will be a progression in numerals, concepts of colours and shapes.

At Home You Can:

Read books about plant life to your child and encourage him/her to plant a sapling and water it daily.
By reading story books and making your home a print rich space, you will improve your child’s ability to master new learning.
Do make your child share his/her reflections of the stories read. This will develop thinking, reasoning as well as aid in confidence building. Please encourage him/her for every effort made- he/she will do better in a motivating and positive environment.

Real life learning experiences help children to see and explore nature so a visit to a nursery is also recommended.
