What Your Child will Learn in February 2015
Theme for the month: Transport Fun
The joy of life lies in “Exploring the world” and what better way to do that than by learning about various modes of transport.
This theme will teach children about different automobiles, trains and airplanes. Their utility, safety measures and responsible citizenship that should be adopted.
As parents, you can talk to them about the importance of pollution control by opting for car pool or using public modes of transport as and when possible. Set an example for your children by switching off the ignition when stopping at signals and following traffic rules and explaining them the objective of the same.
Effective usage of Audio Visual learning, hands on experiences, technology and role plays would form a part of our teaching strategies.
Your child will learn to write letters Aa- Zz independently.
There will be recapitulation of all sounds done, tricky words and 3 letter words.Your child will also learn rhymes, stories, show and tell activity, picture talk, book browsing, newspaper reading and reading short sentences.
Reinforcement of numerals, concepts of colour, shape and size will be done.

We again reiterate that by reading story books and making your home a print rich space, you will improve your child’s ability to master new learning.
Do encourage your children to share their views on the stories and movies that they may have heard, read or seen. Ask questions and listen to them attentively. It will build their confidence and enhance their self esteem. Their efforts need a lot of appreciation and positive affirmations to progress well.
Looking forward to an exciting month of learning and discovery.
