Little ones are never too young to learn

King David Victory Park Pre-primary is all about nature, touch and making each learning experience memorable and fun.

Tu B’Shevat, the New Year of the Trees in Judaism, recently came up on the Jewish calendar.

While the finer details of Tu B’Shevat may have escaped little ones at the pre-primary, the school was not about to let the little ones miss out on the festivities or an opportunity to learn.

One of the teachers introduced an exciting activity so they can be part of the special day. The teacher had little ones paint trees using their forearms to make the trunk of a tree and their fingers to make branches.

King David Victory Park campus marketing manager, Nirvana Rogers, explained that it provided a tactile learning experience for each of the children.

“Their fine motor skills were further developed as they got to stick leaves onto the end of their branches,” she said.

Rogers further explained that the activity not only introduced a tactile learning experience but also gave little ones an opportunity to learn words like bark and trunk as well as follow instructions from their teacher.
