Beginning of Scientific thinking for your little one
Dear MoMsters, teaching about plants is one of the primitive types of science that children can understand.
Before starting the activity explain your child and ask them to think about what do we need in order to grow? Tell them we humans need – healthy food, water, air (oxygen), a place to live, and grow.
In the same pattern, plants need soil, water, and sunlight to grow.
And teach your child to water a plant using a spray bottle, and randomly tell them how water travels through plants, how we get oxygen, how plants breathe. (Of course, the final goal of performing the act of gardening with kids is to encourage them for healthy eating)
Materials needed for this activity.
White plain paper
Seeds (you can collect from green peas)
Flowers (rose, hibiscus, etc.)
Stem (can get stem from spinach)
Leaves (spinach leaves)
Roots (can get roots from spinach or coriander plants)
Tray (to keep all the plant’s parts)
Dear parents let us involve our kids with real plants and their parts, ask them to gather some parts of the plant, and to label them. (To know what to gather, please check materials needed from the above-mentioned points).
Prepare a worksheet and start writing parts of the plant (Seed, Flowers, Stem, Leaves, and Roots).
Make your child observe the real plant parts and introduce them to each part’s name.
Let your child read the parts and glue (label) them accordingly.
Hope your child will match with the correct parts.
This activity is great for the first and second graders kids! It will boost their imagination power. Enjoy valuable & fun activities.
Dear MoMsters, with simple materials and a little planning, today we are going to give you a small idea, with which you can help your child learn math skills at an earlier stage by having fun all together and which in turn will boost their natural curiosity.
Counting steps as you go up or down the staircase.
Number skills are foundational for later mathematics learning, you can teach children early math skills through their daily routines and activities. For example, help your child to count steps as they go up or down the staircase or for older kids to ask them to climb a certain number.
What is required for the activity?
The objective of this game is very simple:
With the help of chalk, write numbers on each step.
At the initial stage, start writing numbers from 1 to 9.
As you move up the stairs count them with your child, by showing each number. (If your child loses interest in recognizing number then do not force them to do, at least walk together while calling out the number by climbing each step).
Try this activity once a day and numbering should not exceed more than 9, as the child would get tired while climbing up the stairs.
Note:Parents should not leave the child alone to climb the stairs; the activity should be done under the parent’s supervision.
“Be patient MoMsters, this activity will take some time to show a better result. One day, all of a sudden you will be amused to see that your child learned some concepts and repeating the numbers just to show you how intelligent are they.” They are, aren’t they? 🙂
