Researching independently is so much fun

Researching independently is so much fun

Language:-  Students did comprehension in their  comprehension workbook with the HRT’S assistance.

The students read aloud from a book of their choice, keeping the reading criteria in mind—clarilty, audibility, voice modulation, fluency. They got to understand the importance of reading, and the fun of listening to a story.

Math:-  H/W Checking of the two word problems given at home.

UOI:-  The students were  given the  scrap book  to write their findings.

They have already chosen a city on which they want to research. They have listed it in their scrap book.

The students were made to write the criteria in the scrap book.

They also wrote the supportive concept based questions to carry out their research.

Life Education:- A quick revision of their understanding of three types of bullying was taken up.

The students viewed 4 pictures displaying emotional and verbal bullying.

An interactive discussion was conducted on the pictures displayed. The students reflection was collectively put up on a chart.

Note:-

Parents are requested to stick the research guidelines on the last page of the scrap book, as a check list for their research steps which was sent across yesterday with the students.

The parents are requested to support and guide the students to enhance their research skills rather than do it for them.

As the students are already doing it in the school since past fortnight , the students are well versed with the format of research

The parents are also requested to use the PCM paper to help the students to explain certain criteria listed in the scrap book.

Thank you.

Dear Parents,

Few snapshots of the Sports Day held on 17th December. It was indeed fun to see our children taking part in all those sports. Though we applauded for those who came 1st, 2nd and 3rd, having the spirit of competition, but as we all know participation is much more important than winning!!

Kudos to all those children who participated sportingly and enjoyed playing each sport!! 

A huge thanks to all the Parents who came and motivated the children!

Research steps

Research steps

Dear parents,
On Saturday, I gave the class, h.w to do research about Surat city and asked them to write atleast 10 points related to Surat city, that what is making our Surat unique and what was it’s history. Then on Monday in the ICT slot, I had taught them how to do research through internet and gave them hand-outs about research steps. They can even carry on the research using various books, magazines, journals, newspapers, etc to know about the places to be studied. Here as a parent you can help your child to make their findings easy, by asking them to type the key words, if they are using internet. We will still take few more places to have research on and this is how they will learn to do research by following the steps. It is not compulsory to use only internet, they can use other sources too. What is important is that children should know the questions what they want to know and how to get the answers related to those questions.
