“Colours are the smiles of nature.” – Leigh Hunt
The ability to identify colours is considered as a milestone in a child’s cognitive process and is often a central part of early screening for development and educational admittance. Recognizing the colours and identifying the colour name is an important part of a child’s development.
Colour is a powerful and significant communication tool for students. The little angels of Nursery had a wonderful time learning to identify different colours like red, blue, yellow, green etc. They were introduced to the concept of obtaining secondary colours by mixing other colours.
Students had a fun time, when they were asked to pick up balls of different colours and throw it in the respective colour tubs. Through an exciting activity of palm printing, students learnt to obtain orange colour by mixing red and yellow together. The knowledge on colours was further enhanced through other activities like thumb printing and scrap book activity done in which colour cards were made and pasted on it to see how secondary colors are formed. All these activities developed in their visual, fine motor and linguistic skills.
