Creativity: The children were given a choice - waterpaints, crayons and markers.
First they observed the story character, note its features and then draw it.
Shared reading: One of the boys wore the story jacket
and gradually took out the characters
from the pockets while the teacher narrated the story.
Another boy sequenced the story cards - an opportunity to extend
language development and comprehension. The children also learned about the
beginning, middle and end of the story.
Animal/number puzzles: This was an exercise where the children
enhanced hand-eye coordination to manipulate the pieces into the correct position.
They learned how to deal with the problem by trial and error.
The number line was a great aid to help children recall
which number is next if in difficulty.
