The teacher has to be constantly aware of what every child is doing without being active participant in the activity. The play activity is to be watched and any signs of it disintegrating or the child becomes impractical has to be avoided. With a little nudge or encouragement the interest of the child can be regenerate.
THESE FEW POINTS HAS TO BE KEPT IN MIND BY THE TEACHERS DURING SUPERVISION.
- GROUPS SHOULD BE SMALL:
Small group is easy to supervise. Proper and individual attention can be given during the supervision.
- ASSISTANCE OF HELPER TEACHERS CAN BE TAKEN:
If the group is large then assistance in needed to supervise. School can always keep Didi’s or Aya (helper) to supervise during play activity.
- RULES OF SAFETY SHOULD BE TAUGHT:
Before any activity, children must be given the guideline for safety. Do’s and Don’t’s must be share before the activity.
- DISCOURAGED TO CLIMB FENCES, THROW SAND/BLOCKS. JUMP FROM HIGH PLACES ETC.
Those can be share before the activity. Teachers must find innovative method to avoid climbing the fence or throw sands etc. Teachers must explain the consequences and discourage those activities.
- PUSHING OR PULLING MUST BE AVOIDED:
Pushing or pulling or rolling on the floor during the activity must be checked to avoid children from hurt.
- ACCEPTING RULES OF UNIFORMITY IN GROUPS:
The rule set for the activity must be same for all in the group.
- GOOD HANDLING OF TOYS AND EQUIPMENTS:
Children must be taught how to handle the toys and equipments before the activity. Children must be told to use the toys as their own property with love and care. The instruction of handling toys and equipments must be given every day before the activity. In that way they will remember to handle the toy with care.
