We at CCIS believe Public Speaking Skill is a very important skill which should be inculcated at an early age in children as they learn to be less self-conscious and more confident. That is exactly what the kindergarten kids of CCIS did! They spoke a few lines on the topic "I am Special". It was a great first time experience for them and were excited to participate in it.
"Colour is the power which directly influences the soul." Kindergarten children celebrated Red Day on 20th April 2018. The shades of red made the little ones feel happy and radiant. Splash of red everywhere - red baloons, red apples, red tomatoes, red car...red dresses. Red was indeed the colour of the day! The bulletin board was filled with red items too like apple, cherry, strawberry for making it easy to introduce the colour red. A Magic Box was filled with red objects which became the main attraction for kids. They pulled out different objects which made recognition fun. They enjoyed painting lady bugs in red, reciting the poem "Red Red Apples". A Show and Tell Activity was also conducted to add more fun to the day. It was a indeed a day filled with fun and frolic - happy faces gleaming all around!
The already bustling kindergarten play area transformed into an electrifying stage of music, laughter and playful banter when the Puppet show by Dhanpatbhai Ganpatbhai and group took over the center stage. The air was filled with laughter and applause as and when the puppets conveyed a story through unique movements and gestures. This puppet show event for the kindergarten kids was held to educate through music and entertainment. Puppets encourage creativity and imagination in children and help them to create their own stories. Puppets also increase children's communication and social skills.
Students of KG came dressed up in different traditional wear. Students learnt about different traditions, culture and cuisines of our country India. Though there are many traditions and culture followed in India, we are still 'ONE' we are INDIANS. There was a feeling of patriotism and love for all traditions. A Gujarati kid wore punjabi dress and a Maharashtrian dressed up as Mr. Iyer, North South Ea and West all came from different corners of India but as ONE INDIAN.
Colors, being a very integral part of a child’s all round development, we at CCIS, give special emphasis to use color as a learning tool for Kindergarten section. Colors help the students get in tune with their emotions, feelings and surroundings. The more they recognize and understand the colors around them, the more they get in touch with their own self. Color psychology and color therapy is in itself a vast field of study which gives us an insight on the importance of color to make sense of the real world and the self. Color days were celebrated at CCIS to help students understand the importance of colors in their life and to recognize the feeling associated with each color. On Blue day the students were dressed up in blue. Blue color enhances the creativity and stimulates a cool and relaxing environment. The classroom interior walls showcase the color blue. Red is the color of passion and strong feelings of threat, love, or excess stimulus. We have used the color with other combinations to help in completing tasks with energy and enthusiasm. Green is the color of prosperity and abundance. It can relax and contribute to better health in kids. Our students adorn the color of earthy delight and display the love of mother earth and environment. Black and White Day was also celebrated with great enthusiasm.
Students of KG participated in a fashion show. It was a colourful event as students came dressed in party outfits. They walked on the stage as the fashion models walk on a ramp. Few enacted like true celebrities. It was a visual treat for the students as well as for the teachers. By doing so the teachers tried to remove the stage fear within every student and to develop self-confidence and plus to develop the dressing sense.

She told children that they have to play a role of Postman. As per the instructions the chairs are the houses and children have to post the envelope to the respective house.
Fruits, one of the main source of nutrition and good health for children, it is essential to give them an understanding about their daily intake of fruits and their benefits. Group activities and class discussions were held to enhance the students’ team spirit and communication abilities. Fruit collage activity saw children bring their own fruits from home. The classroom was filled with variety of fruits and their aroma. The teachers discussed healthy food eating habits with the children. Flow charts were prepared by teachers to help students understand the color shape and nutritional benefit of the fruit. At the end our students made a collage out of the collection of fruit pictures and showcased on the class boards.
The Janmashtami celebration give the students an understanding about Indian cultural traditions and festivals. These celebrations inculcate a sense of tolerance and brotherhood.

Vibrant colors, dress up, music and dance is a highlight of the day. There was 100 percent participation from students.
Show and tell- About my family was an event for Kindergarten students to speak about their family. This activity encourages the students to express themselves verbally and articulate their thoughts in the right direction. The students who don’t speak much are given personal attention and given a space to open up. The teachers build a comfortable and friendly environment for the students to voice what they think. This year we received exceptional response from our students. They spoke about their family members. Their speech gave the teachers a unique insight into the Child’s world, their observation skills and emotions. The teachers encouraged them to observe, form an opinion and voice them in front of the class. Every speech was then put up in a class journal by the teachers with video recordings. The records helped us in knowing the potential of each student.
The kindergarten students put up a spectacular show of their unique personalities with mix n match funny attires on FunnyFusionDay. Children love to dress up and stand out in an extraordinary way. It's even better when it has to be funny as they can indulge in learning through laughter and humor. The fusion of western and ethnic increases their imagination. They also learn to observe and admire their friends. Special thanks to the parents for making them look so funny and colorful !
