Lesson On Transport

After some months with the centre, Nicholas has grown more mature and now able to wait patiently for his turn. He is also able to listen to instructions given and carry them out. He's also becoming more independent and likes to socialize with his friends.

For the whole of last month, they were on the theme "Transport".

This is his favourite topic and he displayed a very keen interest on stories about vehicles told by the teacher. He really sat down and focus on what was taught. Teacher was amazed that he was able to tell her all the names of the vehicles! He said it very clearly from simple one like car, motorbike to bigger words like aeroplane, helicopter. Got to thank my helper for this actually as she had been teaching him these from his big picture book.

They did some 3D aeroplanes and the children get to identify which vehicle belongs to the air transport, sea transport or the land transport.

The teacher arranged the chairs and make a mini bus for the kids and they played pretend games with it.
See them sitting on "bus"

They did some art work with their vehicles too. He rolled his truck on the paint and let it move down the art paper. This help the kids to see the track that their vehicle made and different vehicles make different size track.

This looks interesting for him..see the little smile on his face.

For the sea transport, the teacher got a big tub and an "oar" for the kids to play pretend games again. They sang "row, row, row your boat" too!

And as if that is not enough, the teacher make a boat out a paper for the kids to play again the next day.

How can we missed the train! See little boy crawling under those chairs pretending that he is a train going through a tunnel!!

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Michelle, I wonder how do you managed to take those photos when the teacher is conducting her class?

Blessed mum said...

Hi Sarah's mom & dad - erh..i didn't take these pics..its taken by the assist teacher. They have 2 teachers in the toddler class.

btw, parents are welcome to stay if we want to see how the class is conducted. they are not "secretive" in this area.
