As we expand the circle of interaction of children, the most significant influence after the family is the school and the other people they interact in their daily lives like teachers, doctors, barbers, drivers and maids.
This month, under the theme ‘People Around Us’, Prideens from Grade Pre-Nursery learnt about the people who help us in different ways. To build a deeper understanding of the concept, Prideens came dressed as doctors, nurses, teachers, postmen, tailors, traffic policemen and cobblers. Using hand puppets,teachers dramatized the character to give a better understanding of the duties performed by each community helper .Children were asked probing questions to develop observation and recitation skills and also develop understanding on the tools used by some of the community helpers.
Children not only learnt about the roles they play, but also develop a sense of gratitude for the work they do for us. To develop social skills of expressing gratitude, our Prideens, designed cards to thank their class didi’s for helping them everyday.
