“Having fun” is not a break from learning – it is learning!
Children are not only learning during theme discussions, or when learning numbers and letters. They are learning non-stop during play. In the first 6 years, they learn more maths in the sandpit and the bath than they do in a lesson on numbers. The sandpit is the perfect place for a child to further develop their vocabulary. It is also a good opportunity for a teacher to verbalize what the child is doing, thereby teaching new vocabulary. Under the theme Sea students of grade-1 learned a lot of new vocabulary and had so much fun.
