In KDSF-National Centre the Theme for teaching changes every two to three months . From the month of September to November the theme was “Plants”. The children were taught about plants, how to plant in a pot, how to water the plants etc. The children were also shown how to hoe and put the sand in the pot. The teachers even got them to draw a plan on “How to Plant a Flower”.
Besides just learning about plants the children were exposed to sensorial activities where they had to scoop the sand, feel the seeds of the plants etc. Carrying the hoes and bending to water the plants were all part of their gross and fine motor skills. (The hoes were made by the teachers from cardboard!)
