Preschoolers learn best through fun activities likes games, art and craft sessions, and sports. Additionally, these activities will also help preschoolers adapt to the new environment. The primary goal of preschool is to help kids develop physically, emotionally, and psychologically.
Activities and games will keep the child engaged, interested, and happy. Early learning programs accord high priority to activity-based learning. This is because activities encourage children to explore more, discover more and learn more. Preschool activities are generally based on a defined curriculum. These activities are supervised by trained, certified early education experts.
Reading and Role Plays
Reading will help enhance your child’s vocabulary and stimulate the child’s imagination and intelligence. The preschool teacher or other academic expert may choose exciting books that will help children learn through stories. Children’s stories often personify non-living elements to boost children’s interests.
For instance, stories about caterpillars and seeds can help the child understand life cycles and other critical aspects. Preschool staff often engages children in drama or role-play sessions. The children are asked to pick characters from a selected story. The group then enacts the story with the teacher’s help.
These techniques allow children to memorize details and words in the story. Additionally, these techniques also promote socialization and interaction. It’s critical to choose an interactive approach for storytelling and reading. Teachers ask constant questions or use “voices” for characters to ensure the children pay attention.
Outdoor Games and Picnics
Fresh air and outdoor games can do wonders for children. It’s critical to include outdoor games and exercise sessions that encourage the child to stay physically active. Lack of physical activity can leave kids feeling sluggish, tired, or even hyperactive. Not only will games, sports, and exercises help kids “let out energy,” but they are also vital for their emotional and psychological health. Team-based games and sports can help kids explore the concepts of teamwork, winning, and losing.
Art and Craft Sessions
Studies show that children identify and learn colors and shapes faster than they learn words or numbers. Therefore My First Years Preschool often uses art and craft sessions to teach children about colors, shapes, and other vital elements. Teachers may also use elements like sand, rocks, twigs, and food material to create crafts.
These techniques will also help children identify different textures and tones. Additionally, art and craft sessions also help improve coordination and fine motor skills in children. These sessions allow children to think creatively and find ways to express themselves.
