And it went upand down.

A little girl showing the balloon she drew on paper.

And now there were many balloons.

"Can you draw something else with a circle?" asked Grandmother.

Teacher's Pages UNIT  5

 Activities now have more to do with what the children like to do. You can try this:

  • Make the children sit in a circle. Ask a child to start counting from number 1. The child sitting next to him/her continues with number 2 and so on. The child who has to say number 5 or 10 says chup and the next child starts with number 1 again.
  • Draw a circle on the floor with a piece of chalk. Let the children walk along the drawn line. Ask them to hold a book/any object in one hand and walk along the line. Talk to them about balancing things. Ask them if they feel giddy on a merry-go-round.

  • Develop listening skills
  • The children can be taken outdoors during the break and allowed to eat their snacks there. Let them talk to each other about the different tastes of foods. Ask children to speak to the point and take turns. Also inculcate in them a habit of listening when others speak.

  • Develop pronunciation
  • Read the following words and say aloud with the children:

    around        bound             brown        down

    found              ground        sound

  • Exposure to language
  • Display the following sight words in the classroom and let the children read them aloud.


    Circle    line   oval          square     triangle       zig-zag

  • Develop writing skills / fine motor coordination
    1. Write the letters from a to q on the blackboard. Let the children read and write from the blackboard and the picture dictionary. Children should not be forced or pressurised to recognise words or letters. This can be done through pictures or actions. Use Activity Sheets and a notebook to further encourage the patterns as on pages 55, 58, 59, 60 and 61, and any extra exercises that the children want to do.
    2. Pour water from one container to another.

  • Raising awareness
  • Tell the class that we must cover our food from flies.
