Identifying and understanding different shapes that surround us is an important mathematical milestone. This is where it all begins and the journey is simply magical!
There is also a certain thrill in being able to point at an object and to identify it correctly. We at Presidency took this into consideration and planned an activity for our Nursery children. We used different types of food to make it interesting because everything is more interesting when food is involved!
The Shapes with Food activity started with a brief introduction about food and shapes. The teachers later took examples of food such as fruits, biscuits, and idly to explain that each of them has a definite shape. Children were gazing at their teacher and listening the entire time intently, enthralled by the activity.
The activity was fun and highly educational in two ways. Children understand the importance of staple foods and they learned about shapes! Plus, they enjoyed the activity thoroughly by arranging foods according to shapes and patterns.
We would like to thank all the parents of our Nursery children who actively participated in the activity. They displayed multiple foods with multiple themes from salad decoration to a display about perishable and non-perishable food. This collaboration made the activity all the more interesting.
At Presidency, we are always looking at ways to make learning engaging because activity-based learning has proven to be one of the most effective methods today. Alongside, it is a delight that our parents are always encouraging and supporting us, giving us the liberty to use multiple teaching methodologies. We thank you all and assure you that we will always work towards providing children an excellent and conducive learning environment.
