At Home You Can:

Explore books related to the theme. By reading story books and making your home a print rich space, you will improve your child’s ability to master new learning.

Do make your child share his/her reflections of the stories read. This will develop thinking, reasoning as well as aid in confidence building. Please encourage him/her for every effort made- he/she will do better in a motivating and positive environment.

To enhance your child’s learning experience, you could take the child to the market place and grocery stores. The best way to inculcate a healthy eating habit is to enjoy fruits and vegetables as a daily part of your family diet.
