Activities under Curriculum
  • We at Gurukul encourage activity based learning depending upon age of kids. Children are born musicians, dancers, artists and storytellers, and the opportunities for healthy development are endless. We just have to provide the canvas, the paper, the paints, the materials and the welcoming environment, setting the stage for creativity, learning and fun. Can’t we try to deemphasize the ABCs and reemphasize what comes naturally to young children? Not only will the children’s environment brighten, but adults will find the stress decreases and productivity and efficiency increase. It really is so simple. Here are few

  • 1. Story Telling

    With pictures and videos, this creates interest in children when characters come live in front of them. We teach life experience through stories and pictures like Traffic rules, social habits, sharing etc. It also develops language skill as they listen and narrates the story.

  • 2. Drawing, Colouring and Craft Work

    It enhances kids’ imagination and creativity. Children develop eye-hand coordination and pre writing skills.

  • 3. Clay Moulding

    You might not realize it, but playing with clay is promoting those little minds to get busy by thinking about what they’re going to create and how they’re going to create it. This type of creative play promotes imaginative problem-solving skills.

  • 4. Dance / Aerobics

    Physical activities like aerobics not only help children to be physically fit but also make them build a stronger self esteem. Aerobics is also said to give a good feeling about themselves which adds to their confidence and makes them strong from inside. Another benefit of aerobics being a good physical activity is the fact that, this not only helps children concentrate on their academics. But also improves their memory and grades. Due to the good physical activity children tend to show more interest in extra curricular activities.

  • 5. Picnic and Excursions

    Children develop peer group bonding and learn to behave in a socially accepted manner. Learning becomes fun from the environment.

  • 6. Puzzle Solvings, Building Towers

    From early childhood right through to adulthood we love to play with puzzles.  We like the way they challenge our thinking and exercise our minds. Puzzles are also an important educational learning tool for toddlers and young children as this process involves problem solving, reasoning skills and developing solutions which they can later be transferred into their personal/adult life.

  • 7. RHYMES / SONGS
    Studies suggest that music and movements nourish the brain while affecting all areas of development, help develop critical listening skills, instill act of kindness and cooperation, provide opportunities to practice social skills, support phonemic awareness, and encourage interaction in non-threatening ways.

  • 8. STAGE EXPOSURE
    There’s nothing like the joy you’ll experience when your child insists on discussing the French Revolution and how it affected the Romantic Movement in literature— sure beats them nagging you to buy them the latest “action figure.”
