UOI

There was one to one discussion with the students regarding Passing the ball game that they played in the PE class where in the students discussed about the strategies they could have used in order to win and also they discussed the mistakes that they made while playing the game.

Students also said that they lost the game because they were not concentrating and were dreaming. Also they said that we were not standing with broad legs so because of that the player who had to crawl through was not able to crawl.

Also the students wrote down the reflection through a graphic organizer.

An indoor game was played known as Broken Squares where each student was given three broken pieces of a square and they had to arrange it in order to make a prefect square. The rules of the game were that there should be no communication with the other member. No verbal communication and also they were not supposed to use sign language.

Tuning In for current unit on Expressing ourselves.

Tuning In for current unit on Expressing ourselves.

UOI 5- We can express ourselves in many different ways: Tuning In

We have started with our new Unit of Inquiry. The central idea is – We can express ourselves in many different ways. For the Tuning In activity, on the first day we showed them different faces with expressions and asked them to share how they are feeling and how. So they came up with expressions like happy, sad, excited, tired, surprised etc. The next day ,we invited Juhi Parekh ( Drama teacher at FS) as Guest. She visited each class and performed a Mime – an theatrical technical of suggestion, action, or emotion without words, using only emotions and gestures.
All the students were very excited to see different expressions on her face. They were trying to make out what she is trying to say and how she is feeling and they were really wonderful in that. Through this activity, the learners got to know that we can express ourselves without speaking i.e. non verbal form of expression.
So, this way we have initiated the unit with the understanding that there are verbal and non verbal ways of expressing ourselves. Now we will be finding out different verbal & non-verbal forms of expressing.
