“Respect for ourselves guides our morals; respect for others guides our manners”
Good mannerisms are one of the important life skills that every child should be taught. CPS Pre-primary in a mission to cultivate good mannerisms as an important habit in our young learners marked the event “Demeanor delivered.” A special assembly was conducted by the children of UKG A to commemorate this event. The children showcased a commendable show by highlighting the different mannerisms that can be followed at home, school and outside places through speech and exhibits. The confidence and perfection the children posed on stage, left us in amazement.
This foundation for good habits and good mannerisms at early childhood will guide the children for their lifetime and will lead them to the path of success.
“Good manners will open doors that the best education can’t.
Learning about colours is always fun for Pre Primary kids, because colour and shape are two very noticeable attributes of the world around us. Children along with their teachers always have lot of fun in learning and teaching colours. The ability to identify colors is considered a marker and milestone in a child’s cognitive process and is often part of early screening for development and educational admittance. Recognizing the colours and identifying the colour names is an important part of a child’s development. Early identification of colors helps to create the cognitive link between visual clues and words.
Colour, colour what colour do you choose? Children are naturally attracted to bright colors, and hence we chose few bright colours like Red, Green, Blue and Orange to teach them during colours week “Multihue”. Each day an interesting activity was planned and children thoroughly enjoyed doing the activity along with their peer group. Thumb Print, paper pasting, hand print, finger painting, sponge dabbing, cotton sticking are the variety of activities done during this colour week in CPS Junior Academy. Kids were delighted with the take always sent during colours week like tiny umbrellas, carrots, crowns, caterpillar book marker, Peacock head band, Smiley wrist hand, rainbows, sunflowers, apple bands, Leaf head band, and butterfly toy. All the kids and teachers had a colour code every day and it was wonderful scene to watch all together enjoying the “Multihue” week.

To promote social emotional development in our Pre Primary children (UKG and MONT III) CPS Pre Primary wing organized the event, The Emoticons. The event was centered with the motive of teaching our young learners to indentify the different emotional feelings and the appropriate way of expressing these emotions.
Interesting activities were planned like stick puppet activity where each child was given a stick puppet depicting different emotions and were asked to enact the same. The children also drew faces with different kinds of emotions and were able to colour the pictures showing emotions with the corresponding colours called out by the teacher. They were also asked to look into a mirror and find how their own faces change while they expressed different emotions.
These activities helped the children to improve their basic vocabulary. They were able to express and relate themselves to emotions in them and also with others, which for sure would inculcate in them a good behavior and relationship management.
