Creative Activities and Academics
Plans to teach the creative activities, such as singing, music, painting, learning the various colors and shapes, etc., can be done by organizing fun games and in a light atmosphere. You can teach your child some easy songs to create interest in the art. Organizing a get-together of many children and giving singing lessons is one of the good music plans for babies. For teaching colors, you can first point out how a particular color is and then give assignments to find that particular colors in the home. Show a sample drawing by sketching it yourself and then ask your child to draw them and post them on the board once they are complete. Art activities help them learn new things. By using pebbles or chocolates, you can teach mathematical concepts such as addition and subtraction. You can ask simple questions and check whether the fun ways of teaching are working for your child. Color lessons are important, as they will get well prepared before they have drawing and painting sessions in school.
Scientific facts, such as blue color of the sky, identifying animals by telling the children about their looks, showing your child how electronic gadgets and appliances, like mobile phone and television work will make the kid smart. Explaining concepts like schools, college and universities by showing nice pictures in papers and on television can help to create interest for them in children. Making clay items should be included in the plans.
The lesson plans for summer would include describing the weather and the things to be done like traveling to different places, holidaying and how to take care of health during summer, etc. Teaching Christmas songs, such as “Silent Night”, “Jingle Bells”, and “Away In the Manager”, and Christmas crafts, such as trimming Christmas trees, telling Christmas stories such as the “The Night Before Christmas”, are good winter lesson plans. Decorating rooms with ribbons and introducing cartoon favorites like “Frosty the Snowman”, “A Charlie Brown Christmas”, and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”, will be quite entertaining.
Value education is of prime importance for kids, as the good values learned in childhood will help him throughout his life. Teach your kid the importance of a family – especially a mother, good behavior, and good manners. You can take help of family photographs for teaching relationship lessons to toddlers. Prepare child behavior charts for easy and fast understanding of concepts and child development.
Lesson plans for toddlers will help in overall development of your child. These lesson plans for babies and toddlers are special, because they guarantee education along with entertainment.
