📘 How can Parents help at Home?

👪Parents can discuss how the change in temperature reflects the passing away of one season and the arrival of the other.

👨‍👦Parents can take their child along whenever they go to buy a new dress and explain that dresses are made of different materials keeping in mind the various seasons.

🧥Showing woolen garments, tell that these are meant to be worn during winter when it is cold, or that cotton dresses are most suitable for summer when it is hot.

🍆Parents can show that different vegetables grow during different seasons because they require different climatic conditions. 

🌹Take a walk in the garden and show the different flowers and discuss during which time of the year they can see them bloom.

🎆India is a land of festivals we celebrate different festivals during different times of the year.

📚Encourage your child to pretend to read, especially in books that contain repetition and rhyme. Most children who enjoy reading will eventually memorize all or parts of a book and imitate your reading. This is a normal part of reading development.

🔉Letter sounds identification through books can be done and jolly phonic songs are easily available on YouTube.

📰Activities such as circling the letter sounds in newspapers or magazines at home.

🔢Numbers can be revised through objects, number books, puzzles, and number cards if available at home.

🧩Parents can encourage their child, without touching the objects, to sort things that are heavy and things that are light.

🥣Give your child plastic bowls or straws or pencils of varying sizes.

🧸Stacking and sorting toys are a great way to teach your child the difference between big and small.
