Newspapers in the Jr.Kg Homeroom
Newspaper is a fun medium for exploration in preschools. It can be used in a number of ways starting from Art to English. Our learners were very excited when we used newspaper headlines as a recap activity during our English session. The letters visiting us this fortnight were “Aa” and “Tt”. Learners had a lot of practice writing the formation on their slates and workbooks. Learners could also identify the letter sound and their friends. They enjoyed an activity of identifying and circling the letters learnt in a strip of newspaper headlines. We also introduced the mountain valley, C curve and U pattern in pre-writing skills. This was reinforced with pattern cards, tracing on laminated pattern cards, walking on patterns on the floor followed by writing the patterns in their notebooks.
