A cheerful welcome activity helps children to open up with the teachers and start exciting school journey. Fun and engaging activities are the perfect way to welcome students back to school and lay the foundations for a strong classroom community. To make this journey playful, successful and full of happy experiences, MIS International School organized a welcome activity for all grades (Nursery-10). The welcome activity aimed to enhance their creativity and aesthetic sense. For kindergarten children the day started with the warm welcome by the teachers. Initially it was difficult for the tiny tots but the fun activities made them comfortable and happy, especially ‘Making of the star activity’. For Gr.1 students they were provided with popsicle sticks, star shaped cut-out and marker. With the help of glue, they pasted the star cut out on the stick and wrote the message “I, the star of Grade 1”. Students of grade 2 made Super Boy/Super Girl cutouts on ice-cream sticks and wrote “I am the super boy/girl of grade 2”.For grade 3-5 paper folding rabbit was planned to “WELCOME” the students. For this activity students made rabbit shaped bookmarks. They created and decorated the different types of bookmarks using innovative ideas to make them look more interesting. For grade 6-8, creative and colorful bookmarks were prepared by the students based on the visuals shown to the students to create an excitement among them while preparing the bookmarks. The bookmarks will be used by the children throughout the year. All these fun-filled activities unleashed their creativity on paper with a message to learn and follow. All the children enthusiastically participated in the activities and experimented with different shades of colors to flaunt their artistic imagination. It was an exciting individual activity for all the children. All the children enjoyed the activity using their creative skills. The event was also instrumental in enhancing the fine motor skills of students. The children participated in the activities with great zeal and enthusiasm. It was a fun filled and joyful day for the entire MIS family as they exhibited unparalleled excitement on their first day at school. It was an amazing experience to see the lovely smiling faces after a gap of two long years.
