Practising 2- digit subtraction through –Montero cubes.

Learners practised 2- digit subtraction sums using montero cubes. They also rechecked all the sums by doing in the notebook. They themselves took two numbers and subtracted both the numbers. They enjoyed and reflected their understanding very well. In the below snaps you can see how much they are engaged while modelling subtraction sums with montero cubes.

Tuning in activity Unit: How we express ourselves.

Tuning in activity Unit: How we express ourselves.

Dear Parents,
As shared with you earlier about the Tuning In stage of our current UOI on different ways of expressing ourselves, we had a Mime act by one drama teacher. The next day kids were taken for a gallery walk. They saw different paintings and visual art pieces and spoke about the mood and expression behind that piece. This was an extension to the non verbal form of expressing. Learners got an understanding that we can express ourselves through non- verbal ways like drawing and painting and also learnt that each and every person has their own view and they learnt about “Perspective”.

Please find given below some lovely moments wherein learners are painting something using props, colours and creativity. After this activity they all have shared their different perceptive about the painting.

Thanks and Regards,

Ruchita
