I Can Do Wonders

 Children will undertake innovative activities wherein they will acquire greater
palmer control. Art and craft activities will entail skills such as cutting, pasting,
paper folding, tracing, punching holes and painting. Children’s artistic talent will
help create a ‘Paper Plate daisy’, ‘Lotus Craft’, ‘Handprint Trees’ Ladybird
Puppet’, ‘Shape Garden’ and ‘My Boat’.

I Can & I Do

 Children will participate and enjoy games and activities such as ‘Three Petals’
‘Silly Lily’, ‘Shake Your Body’ ‘Buzzing Bumblebees’, ‘Push the Seed’, ‘Carry
Your Plant’ and ‘Shape Hop’. All these activities will build all the physical
strength of the students as well as make them aware of their nature around
them through a range of skills such as running, hopping while picking things,
walking briskly within the tracks, dribbling the ball, performing different actions
according to the rhyme, walking on hands and legs like animals and pulling the
toy wagon.

I Help Myself

 Through an exposure to plants children will develop a keen instinct towards


protecting nature, and fulfilling their role as world citizens. For example, through
an activity such as ‘Let us Plant’, they will come to take on the responsibility for
a plant, which would entail watering it regularly. Activities such as ‘Flower
Snack’ will develop self help skills while making a snack using fruit slices. The
children will also make a scrap book of plants using leaves and twigs collected
from the garden in the activity ‘My Collection’. A story about ‘Ria and Her Plant’
will be narrated.

I Me Myself & My Friends

 Through various activities such as ‘Pretty Pansy’, ‘Flower Garden’,


‘Sleeping Trees’, ‘How Useful the Trees Are!’, ‘Where’s the Caterpillar?’
Children will independently exhibit pro-social behaviors, such as
sharing materials with peers and will become more attuned to
basic feeling about plants. Children will be encouraged to
actively participate in role plays as a sunflower and herbivores in
the activities ‘Follow the Sun’ and ‘Plant Eaters’.
