“A good teacher, like a good entertainer first must hold his audience’s attention, then he can teach his lesson.” – John Henrik Clarke
The ability to sequence events in a text or in a story is a key comprehension strategy. Each daily task contains its own inherent sequence.
An activity was conducted for students of Class II in which they made “class-made lemonade”, which not only made their mouth water but also gave them an experiential learning.
The whole class was divided into groups of 6 students and each group was provided with the ingredients. The students had to apply all their five senses to –
navigate and hunt,
pick up the scents,
figure out its taste,
feel the texture,
listen to the instructions.
They picked up an understanding of the importance of performing tasks in a step by step manner i.e. First, then second, after that, third…so on… The little ones applied the knowledge in their daily activities in school and also in story sequencing. Each one of them enjoyed the interesting activity.
