It is very good at providing a foundation for knowledge and understanding. So to provide our students of Grade Nursery an experience, a traffic light craft related to number 3 was planned, where they pasted three different coloured circle cutouts on a black sheet. Students understood the concept of number 3 by counting those three lights in their craft and enjoyed it thoroughly.
Craft encourages children to play and experiment. It enhances student's eye-hand co-ordination and builds levels of manual dexterity. Such activities boost their self-esteem and develop their kinesthetic and cognitive skills.
