“What we instil in our children will be the foundation upon which they build their future.” – Steve Maraboli
Students from a very early age are seen to notice different shapes even before they know their names. Learning about shapes is one of the earliest experiences that preschool students are filled with. To solidify their understanding, the Nursery students were introduced to various shapes in an interesting manner.
Through a play-way method, the teacher initiated a discussion on recognizing different shapes. The tiny tots learnt about a two-dimensional geometric shape “SQUARE”. They were divided into two groups and activities like arranging beads on a square shape, jumping on a square, folding a tissue paper into a square shape and making a photo frame on in the shape of a square were some of the activities which helped the children to know about the shape. These activities also enhanced their fine motor and gross motor skills.
