Educational Games for Kids


In preparatory School, games aren’t just a way for kids to have fun and enjoy their time at school, they must also educate them in a way that may be difficult to teach them otherwise. Kaintal Prep School, one of the best ICSE Schools in Patiala, is here with a few examples of such games.

Pictionary

An activity that only requires basic stationery can indulge children in carrying out various tasks at once. Since being a multi-player game, not only will it encourage team building but also give them a chance to try their hand at drawing and sketching. Additionally, it will push them to be imaginative and work on their thinking capabilities.

Mime Games

Theer are various games where instead of drawing out words or sentences, they must act them out. Games like these help in removing the fear of performing in front of an audience from them as well. Such activities can also help them develop stronger communication skills.

Identification Games

Using flashcards with names or pictures about different subjects and topics can help their memory develop. With topics including, country names, bird and animal species, famous personalities, etc., it can be a fun and easy way of educating them in several general knowledge topics while at the same time aid them in memorizing various subjects. 

Words and Phrases

Games such as Hangman and Scrabble can be the perfect way to help children enhance their language skills. Not only will these games push them to rack their brains for words and phrases they are already aware of but at the same time help them in learning new ones from each other. 

Simon Says

Being one of the most versatile games, where children are supposed to follow every instruction provided to them, it can be used in various ways. First of all, this will inculcate in them a habit of following orders and instil in them a sense of discipline and leadership. It can also be used as a way to indulge them in physical activity that is very important at their young age as well.

Teaching young children basic life skills can be a very cumbersome task, but it is one that is essential for their lives ahead. Kaintal Prep School, Preparatory Schools in Patiala, hopes taking the aid of the aforementioned games can aid teachers and parents in making learning a fun process.

Importance of Preschool Education



Kindergarten marks the beginning of a child’s school life. At Kaintal Prep, one of the top ICSE Schools in Patiala, we believe enrolling your children in a pre-school is a gainful utilization of their precious time as it directs their energy towards productive pursuits.

Here are our top reasons why a preschool education can do wonders for the kids:

Provides Opportunities for Socialization

Children have to step out of the caring comfort of home one day and interact with the world. Preschools provide a warm and affectionate environment where children learn social skills like sharing, compromising and co-operating, nurture close relationships with peers and teachers, acquire confidence and learn how to behave appropriately in social settings.

Makes Transition to Higher Education Easier

A preschool is the child’s first experience in a structured environment. He learns to adapt a set routine which will help him deal with more complex tasks later in life. Besides, it is the perfect launchpad for children into the Kindergarten as they have already been introduced to basic concepts of math, colors, shapes, sizes, and language.

Promotes Self-confidence

Preschool life is replete with fun learning activities which teach valuable skills to children. They learn how to wash their hands, tie their shoelaces, learn basic table manners without having to rely on an adult. Gradually they become more self-reliant which fills them with confidence.

Development of Motor Skills

Preschools are not just about teaching children their ABCs and 123s. There are plenty of fun and exciting activities for the tiny tots that involve them running around playing active games in the playground and other activities which focus particularly on the development of fine motor skills thus resulting in more coordinated, controlled and balanced movements.

Being one of the best preparatory schoolsin Patiala, we follow a meticulously designed preschool program that nurtures children into confident individuals,  ready to begin their school career with a head start.
