Traditional classroom concept with black board and benches is very unconventional now days. It’s a proven fact that grasping capacity is definitely on higher side with observation rather than simply listening. Play room is the favorite room in the house for the kids. This room offers the most fun to them with no obvious reason. Hence now it’s a time to convert classroom into play room. In the todays changing environment, it is essential to develop their intellectual and physical capacity. From our point of view, play can look like just a silly fun. But from kids view, it is how they experiment and observe the world.
Kids are natural explorer. They are drawn to the things around them. If the classroom is filled with plenty of open ended toys that allow kids to experiment and try new things they can grasp the things easily and in a playful manner. Toys are more than just fun. Toys provide some opportunity for children to learn something.
Some educational toys engage a child’s sense, develop their imagination power and encourage them to interact. Every new shape, colour and sound is a learning experience for the kids. Giving different options within the classroom also helps to decrease the behavior problems. Interest areas in classroom such as blocks, toys, music etc. can help them in developing concentration. Making education enjoyable will help to develop a positive attitude towards learning. This is just similar to PopKorn Kids concept “Playing is learning”. PopKorn has created learning solutions for kids in the form of audio-visuals, educational games and books to develop early childhood skills.
By playing games, kids may be able to understand a new concept or idea. Through games kids can learn a variety of skills such as creativity, teamwork, sportsmanship etc. Using play method as a tool to teach in the early childhood classroom will bring a holistic approach to the content and will help developing every part of each child. Playing is an important aspect for healthy brain development. After teaching a lesson, letting children play will help them put the information they have just learned into imaginary real world situations. Playing also offers some cherished memories.
So, make your classroom full of fun and enjoyable for kids!

Wondering or what? No need to do so, folks...!
We all know that kids love to play a lot. Between the age of 2 to 7 years, children develops the skills of knowledge, understanding of self and surroundings. But, to make them learn, the methodology used, also play significant role in child's learning. At this age, they prefer to play and enjoy. If we show them a book and ask them to read or learn, probably they will not. But learning is also important! Hence, PopKorn Kids has developed such a concept for preschools and kindergarten to make kids' learning enjoyable; and that’s 'Playing is learning' concept.

Childhood is full of fun and filled with notable experience for kids as well as the parents. Kids are curious, imaginative and inquisitive…so excited and eager to learn new things, about their surroundings. They try to communicate by moving hands, nodding head, paddling legs, shaking hands in different direction, tottering whole body and many other things they do, which makes feel something different for parents.
As and when kids grow, parents should share the stories and poems with them. This is an excellent way to help them develop language and early childhood literacy skills. Stories, poems and rhymes can be used to promote the understanding and positive attitude about the natural world. Many of the kids have heard about “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and many kids think of shining stars in the sky. This offers more accurate information of nature or say about the stars and sky.
For Example, one rhyme we used to chant in pre-schools:
I can See Right,
I can see Left,
Hello to You,
I look at Ground,
I look at sky.
Fly – off little bird.
Good Bye. Good Bye.
Some of the benefits kids are likely to gain from above poem that includes the development of language, what is right? What is left? Looking Up...Down…etc; A deeper understanding of Sight Words pertaining to International Curriculum for kindergarten. Poetry is more effective than other forms of developing linguistic skills in kids. It has an enthralling and phenomenal way of introducing new ways of seeing the things around kids. Picture books are also written as poems and can be used to nurture poetic thinking in kids. (You can have a look of such Picture Book designed by PopKorn Kids also.)

In today's digital era, it is important to teach future managers, scientists, engineers about the lessons in morality pertaining to the education that will help them to improve the quality of life.
Education can be a vehicle to help next generation to point out - what's wrong going on in the society? They can be able to identify and justify the same in future. Hence, education should provide a training ground for students to sharpen their skills. They can be able to explore that how ethical decisions are made and what should be taken into consideration for the same. That's why it is suggested that we must start teaching children how to think.....not what to think.
