Play, Curiosity and Enthusiasm : Sharmila Vijayvargi


The classroom is a second home for a teacher as well as for a child. The classroom should be developed into traditional playtime or exploration centres. These developmental learning centres promote a child to learn effectively.

The physical environment in a preschool classroom should be set up in such a way that it promotes self-learning and direction to the children. The environment provided to the children should be organized, stimulating and comfortable in order to learn effectively.

Preschoolers are full of energy, enthusiasm and determination to explore and learn,  hence the environment that we provide should be challenging, interesting and  foster independence and creativity. Phonemic awareness is the knowledge that each word is made up of specific sounds and, phonological awareness is the ability to manipulate the sounds of language.

For children to develop these skills, they need repeated opportunities to listen to and play with language. Children in the ABC and  word work centre practice alphabet, play with letter and sound associations learn words that are common and important in their lives and begin to and begin to create unawareness of high-frequency words in a relaxed risk -3 atmosphere through  games, songs and fun activities.
