Jr. Kg – February 2017
Theme for the month: Fun with Transport
The joy of life lies in “Exploring the world” and what better way to do that than by learning about various modes of transport.
This theme will teach your child not only about the different modes of transport such as automobiles, trains and airplanes but also about their utility and the safety measures that we should adopt as responsible citizens.
Effective usage of Audio Visual Learning, hands on experiences, technology and Role plays will be the methodology used.
Your child will learn to write letters Aa- Zz independently.
There will be recapitulation of all sounds done and 3 letter words. Do reinforce the use of tricky words. Your child will also learn through rhymes, stories, show and tell activities, picture talks, book browsing, and newspaper reading activities. They will also learn to read short sentences.
Reinforcement of numerals, concepts of colour, shape and size will be done.

At Home You Can:
Explore books related to the theme. 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 your child for every effort made – he/she will do better in a motivating and positive environment.
Talk to your child about the importance of pollution control by opting for car pool or using public modes of transport as and when possible. Set an example for your child by switching off the ignition when stopping at signals and by following traffic rules and explaining to them the objective of the same.
