Playgroup – August 2016      

Theme for the month:Animal Kingdom

When children have opportunities to see wild life, a whole new world of wonder can open up. The animals needn’t be large or exotic, even the sight of common creatures such as ducks or squirrels would be fascinating for children.

In order to make it interesting for our toddlers, the theme ‘Animal kingdom’ is designed in such a way that children will develop a deeper understanding of animals that they are really fascinated by. Your child will be able to identify the animals and distinguish them from pet / domestic animals.

Effective usage of Audio Visual learning,technology and Role plays will be the methodology.

Language:

Vocabulary will be enhanced through the introduction of letters ‘Dd’, ‘Ee’, ‘Ff’, ‘Gg’ and picture vocabulary related to the theme. Along with these, various activities like book browsing, picture talks, rhymes and stories will be done on a regular basis.

Numeracy:

The child will be introduced to numerals, concept of colours and shapes.
