Gearing up for a new unit…..

Gearing up for a new unit…..

Our new unit “Healthy life style” began with a  gallery walk. Pictures related to food, hygiene, daily routine, exercise and unhealthy food were shown.

The gallery walk was followed by a discussion, during which the  learners came up with the word “Healthy”.

The learners reflected on their daily routine which led them to the term “Life style”. The  whole class discussed it in the form of a mind map.

The glimpses of their reflections are as follows……

Learning Math is Fun !!!

Learners of Sr KG Sparkle and Shine were engaged in a guided play session of LESS and MORE.

Here they had to group themselves (in TENS and ONES) according to the number given.

They were then asked to reflect , as to which group had more members.  After showing them the sign of ” Greater than” , they answered that the big mouth of crocodile will eat the group which had more members.

Here are a few glimpses of the activity :-
