K1- Theme ‘Festivals of India’



The theme for Grade K1 students of Orchids The International School-Masjid Bunder, a famous school near Tardeo, was on the topic ‘Festivals of India’ – Raksha Bandhan, Eid , Diwali, Ganesh Chaturthi, Christmas and Guru Nanak Jayanti. To recapitulate the theme, an interesting activity was conducted in the classroom on 18th December 2015. The teachers had prepared flashcards with pictures depicting the individual festivals. Each picture was numbered in a serial order from one to six. The teacher also took a set of number flash cards, numbered one to six. She then called out a set of six students at a time, and they were asked to pick up a number flashcard. Each student was given the picture flashcard that had the same number correlating to the number flashcard. Each student was then asked to speak about the festival depicted in their respective flashcards. It was a fun way to recapitulate the topic while providing an opportunity for the students to speak aloud and build on their confidence.
