CURRICULUM INSIGHT

Jr.Kg – July 2017

Theme for the month: Creepy Crawlies

 We have witnessed that children get especially excited about insects and bugs because they see them all the time, have played with them or probably have spent time trying to inspect them with a magnifying glass.

 Bugs and insects! We use these terms interchangeably, though they are different. Thus the theme – “Creepy Crawlies” will help them to understand the difference between an insect and a bug and their significance.

 Your child will be exposed to a plethora of activities, tools and technology to enable him/her to understand the incredible and intricate world of the “Creepy Crawlies”. We shall also engage him/her through a lot of skill building techniques to improve his/her physical, cognitive, motor and communication skills.

 Language:

Your child will learn the letters ‘Aa’, ‘Tt’, ‘Ii’, ‘Pp’ and ‘Nn’ with their phonic sounds, how to blend and read 3 letter words and tricky words. Your child will also explore Rhymes, Stories, Show and Tell activity, Picture Talks, Book Browsing and Newspaper Reading.

Do reinforce the use of Tricky Words: I, the, he, and she and do keep reading to them every day and make your home a print rich space

 Life – skills:

Dining Etiquettes: Help your child develop and implement good dining etiquettes in their daily life, so that they become part of their personality.

 Numeracy:

The child will be introduced to numerals, concepts of colour and size.
