Early Childhood Education

This book is particularly a preparation for understanding Science. Science is built from curiosity, experience, analysis and finally the expression of a discovery. The main part of this process is arranging objects, activities and ideas so as to create a new order or pattern. Science is the discovery of new patterns. This book is to help children discover the patterns and arrangements of the world around them by using their hands, senses and minds. Understanding is the discovery of order.

As a teacher, I believe that children retain a subject that is delivered in the form of stories far longer than they do through conventional teaching methods. Storytelling, especially in the case of languages, engages children in such an effective manner that they are able to remember concepts or characters for a longer period of time.

“If I summarise the core beliefs and pedagogic practices that we saw in these classrooms, the foremost would be the teachers’ belief that ‘every child can learn; the responsibility is ours.’ These teachers try to make the learning experience interesting for every child and respect the existing knowledge they bring to the classroom, using it to build new knowledge… These teachers help children connect concepts with the world around them…” (S Giridhar, 2019. p122)

The future of coding is set in stone. According to Forbes, coding will be even more relevant in 2025 than it is now. What is it about coding that makes it such an important skill to learn and demanded in so many industries?

Just like how English is the global business language, coding is the language of technology. As we approach the peak of artificial intelligence (AI), teaching kids to code becomes a crucial part of their education.

You keep folding the SALT & PEPPER BOX (Din-Raat) and simultaneously keep telling the story.

What you will see and appreciate in the beautiful creations out of leaves on the accompanying pages, and the thoughts these pictures will trigger in your mind. all have elements of the 'scientific temper', of the 'scientific attitutde. about which you would have perhaps come across countless mentions and discussions on earlier occasions But you would have found few solid examples of what, meant by these words, In this lovely booklet, you will find several examples which contain the elements aforementioned. Several others you will he able to create yourself.

Activities around Science and Craft - to make your children play and learn together and that too from simple materials or trash you throw away.

This book contains so many activities on toys you can make, play and learn so much about Science and Art.

Children from the very beginning should be encouraged and persuaded to make use of their heads and hands. Read this book and try making the toys on your own. Going through this book, if you don't understand something, think it over, apply your own mind and try something on your own and by yourself. If what you make does not quite look like the toy shown in the book, but but works, the same way or differently, this is even better.

This book is a collation of some interesting activities - geometry by paper folding, toys, tangrams, pumps, caps, experiments, and simple science models. These activities are interspersed with inspiring stories on education, peace, environment and mathematics. More than one thousand line drawings illustrate the text. This book follows no strict order or hierarchy. It is not meant for any specific age group, nor does it supplement or complement textbooks. This book shows possibilities of doing science with simple things.
