L is for Lemonade

The KG children perceived that a ray of fresh scent from the lemons is always a bliss and a perfect drink on a summer day. The Lower Kindergarten children were all set and excited to prepare their very own refreshing lemonade.

Multiple questions were put across the children in order to engage them in active participation.

Children were introduced with new vocabulary through hands-on learning. Words like squeeze, sugar, stir, pinch of salt, seed, cut, half, knife were used during the course of preparation.

Children loved stirring all the ingredients together. When children finished, they tested it to make sure it was sweet enough. They understood sweet and sour are opposites.

Children were also asked to count the number of seeds in their lemon enhancing their counting and math skills on the activity.

Having kids squeeze their own lemons for this activity made it even more meaningful and built hand strength which aids in writing.

Handwash Activity Report

Hand washing and caring goes together.

Keeping hands clean is one of the most significant steps we can seize to shun away from getting sick and spreading germs to others.

Many diseases and conditions are spread by not washing hands with soap and clean running water.

Importance on hand washing activity for children is central because they have low resistance against germs and diseases. Kids may not understand this concept so it has to be repeated again and again till washing hands frequently become a habit.

Simply put, cleanliness of hands is of paramount importance - especially to avoid getting sick yourself as well as spreading the germ to others.

The children of T.I are given a wide awareness on the importance of self hygiene every single day along with the ways to follow and practice in their everyday routine.

Children were taught about the importance of keeping their hands clean and following hygienic practices through hand wash awareness programme.

Children were given opportunity to view the visuals of hand wash activity through animated songs and movies that would widely interest them and subsequently were taught to follow the activity as seen.

They enthusiastically followed and learnt to wash their hands as taught.

Few parents and teachers of T.I took active participation in the programme to observe the children's activity. At the end of the session feedback on the event was sourced.

This activity was organized to benefit our tiny tots in order to minimize spreading germs and to take sufficient self care; this simple practice would save them from many infirmities and will keep them healthy.

This habit can truly save lives.
