Children pick up many words in their daily interactions .It is important to help them learn the ideas and information to understand the world around them. As our language begins to develop, early spatial concepts such as in front of, behind, top, bottom, over, under, last, between, farthest, backward, in, on, etc., help us understand directions more precisely .We at Mothers Pride focus not only on teaching the concepts but making the little ones understand the same.
Using ‘Mouse and Cheese’ activity, we introduced the concept of ‘Up and Down’ to our Prideens. Hand puppet of a mouse and cut outs of cheese was prepared by the teacher. ‘Inky’ the Mouse was introduced in the class. His favourite food cheese was kept high on the almirah. Our Prideens were excited to play with their new friend Inky .Children tried to reach out to Inky by jumping UP UP UP. Teacher then showed kids the cheese and asked them to invite Inky to come DOWN and eat it. Inky finally came down and enjoyed eating his favourite food .He then played with the kids too. Our children responded to the activity very great enthusiasm.
