Sa sing the sunflowers

Re ring the red roses

Ga giggle the gulmohars

Ma murmur the marigolds

Pa pop the pretty poppies

Da dance the dahlias

Ni nod the neem flowers

Sa re ga ma pa da ni sa

Highlights of Cycle 21

Highlights of Cycle 21

 
Cycle 21, the end of the unit – Who we are, marked the beginning of an evaluation of student learning. Summative assessments for Language, Math, and Unit of Inquiry were the focus at Grade 6.
 
Math – 
Four basic operations with Integers and their real-life application that was taught as a part of Math curriculum was assessed during the cycle through a combination of a) a board game task and b) pen and paper task.
 
Unit of Inquiry – 
Assessment for the Unit of inquiry included the key learnings from the unit.
During the course of the unit, students explored the different changes that they experience during puberty and that pubertal change is the process of physical changes through which a child’s body matures into an adult body. Furthermore, how the changes affect their evolving sense of self.
 
Cultural beliefs associated with pubertal changes was one of the topics of discussion. The understanding that different perspectives lead to different interpretations, understandings and findings; perspectives may be individual, group, cultural or disciplinary. 
 
Having understood the different changes and perspectives, “How do we accept and evolve through these changes” was focussed. The learners ended up concluding that people make choices based on their understandings, and the actions they take as a result makes a difference.
 
Practices conducive to maintaining health, especially through cleanliness were discussed. Making informed choices to achieve a balance in nutrition, rest, relaxation and exercise; practicing appropriate hygiene and self-care.
 
Self-esteem, confidence in one’s own worth or abilities, along with peer pressure were topics that the students could instantly connect to. Selecting an appropriate course of action or behavior based on fact or opinion gave an exposure to the learners to develop their self-management skills – informed choices.
 
Throughout the course of the unit, learners were being extremely open-minded showing a mind receptive to new ideas or arguments. They could understand the importance of intellectual, physical and emotional balance to achieve personal well-being for themselves and others. 
 
Attitudes like Appreciation, Respect, and Empathy were quite evident in their bearing. In order to understand others’ reasoning and emotions, students were seen imagining themselves in another’s situation so as to be open-minded and reflective about the perspectives of others.
 
Language – 
Robert Frost once said, “Poetry is when an emotion has found it’s thought and the thought has found words.” During the course of the unit, various emotions were heightened that led to evoked thoughts. This is when language aided the students to pen down their thoughts in words resulting in literary work in which the learner’s expression of feelings and ideas was intensified by the use of distinctive style and rhythm, hence giving birth to astounding poetry. Grade 6 was like a poet’s realm. 
 
All in all, Cycle 21 saw learners ruminating on the concepts learned in Integers to clarify their former conjecturesContemplating on their beliefs while deliberately excogitating strategies in order to enlighten themselves on their evolving sense of self, leading them towards progress.

Homework for the day – 5th Jan 2018

Today the students started with their new unit. The tuning in activity was conducted and post the tuning in they were asked to reflect on their experience and share keywords. Through these keywords we revealed the central idea as below:

We can influence people through the expression of our ideas and opinions.

They were also informed about the 3 key concepts for the unit: Causation, Function and Reflection

As part of the homework, students have to form at least 2 key concept questions in their UOI notebook, keeping the central idea for the new unit in mind.

Second homework task for the day is to solve mix bag homework in their mix bag homework notebook.

 

Happy Weekend!
