A hearty appreciation to all the students and parents of Innovate for making the SLC a successful event! Students were confident as well as the parents were motivating. Excellent! Hope to see more in the next SLC!
Today in the Assembly session, we had a Mock Fire Drill. In which the students had to listen to a fire Hooter and evacuate the school rushing towards the football ground. They had to move out from a given route to avoid chaos at the road way. This was a practice to instill in the students the awareness for a fire emergency in the school. This practice will be repeated a few times in the coming months, so that the students are well prepared for the real time!
UOI- Since last 2 weeks we have started up with our new unit on communities and the responsibilities of the stakeholders, under the TDT, ‘How we organize ourselves’. Students were tuned into the unit through, the tuning in of the Key Concept ‘Responsibility’. They did activities like concentric circles of responsibility and discussions on where they were responsible as an individual.
Then the students were introduced to the DFC (Design for change) feature of the unit. In this the unit will go about with Feel – Imagine – Do – Share.
Feel: As a class the students felt different problems they face or others are facing as a citizen in the community of Surat. They turned up with several problems like, traffic rules and regulations not followed, corruption, food adulteration, killing the females and senior citizens, cleanliness and many more.
Imagine: Then as their homework they imagined solutions to these problems. The students came in with Out of the box solutions. They were guided to now think an identify the problems and solutions on which they can ‘Do’ something. Take action on!
Language: Until now, learners did adjectives, homophones and antonyms in language with the practice on comprehension, punctuation and tenses in the learningÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â center. Today the students were introduced to ‘Adverbs’ through different activities. They learnt what is an adverb? Different adverbs formed with different adjectives like; slow to slowly, and greedy to greedily with ‘ily’.
UOI: Start taking actions to your solutions and collect evidences of the same.
Language- make sentences with the adverbs given Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â in the note book.
Maths: Division practice worksheet.
