Today, we had one of the most exciting and rewarding learning experience. We had a number scavenger hunt!!!!
We prepared a strip of paper for each child with numerals 1-20 written in order. Each paper strip was attached to a small whiteboard. Then my lovely assistant teachers placed the number cards around our pre-school playground. which are easily visible to children.
I asked the children to sit in a group to give the instructions. I asked the children to look around the playground to see whether they find any written numbers, Then, I showed the class one of the numeral strips and explained that they will go for a scavenger hunt to find all the number 1-20. Once they find a number, they were instructed to circle it to keep track of which ones they are still looking for. Each child had a numeral strip and a writing tool.
This activity made each child busy and engaged the whole time.
I want to use this scavenger hunt idea at another subject such as alphabet hunt, sight word hunt and other reading-related skills.
