The students were divided in groups of 2. They were given instructions as place 2 channa’s in one cube, 2 channa’s in 2 cubes, this went on till 2 channa’s in 10 cubes. The same activity was done for 3 channa’s in 1 cube till 3 channa’s in 10 cubes. After placiing channa in each cube they were asked 2 count how many channa’s are there. The main motive behind this was to teach them the concept of repeated addition.

Completely occupied and learned a lot. 7/2/2013

Recap:-

Language:- The learners were tuned into  the topic of preposition  through a treasure hunt activity.It was a simplified version, wherein they had to hide

their resource box in the class room. They had to then sit down and write the hints in their language notebook. The learners exchanged their notebooks with their partners and had to find the resource box of their partners after reading the instructions. The learners were completely involved in the game and were introduced to the concept of prepositions.They Wrote,” I have hid my compass box in the glass cupboard, on the second shelf, near the portfolio” etc.

Math :- “Strip Strategy” was used to clear the concept of the table of 1, 2 and 3. The learners did the activity “grade 2 Invent” section. They were given 10 strip each.They were made to sit in pairs and one learners was re asked to lay two strip horizontally and the partner was asked to place 3 strip vertically on the 2 strips. Then they were asked to count the point of intersection or meeting of the strips, it came to 6. The students realised that 2 times 3 will give 6 and the point of intersection is also 6.

These strategy gave a support to their understanding about multiplication.

UOI:- The learners were shown a PPT to rebrush their understanding of the key concept ” Perspective”.–Point of view. It was followed by a discussion and the students came up with a varitey of opinion about one single image on the slide which was shown in parts. When the entire image was unveiled the students were completely shocked that how their perspective differed from the rest of the students as well as the complete picture.

ICT:- The learners were introduced to a story making too. The learners were given the complete demonstration of variety of options on the the projector. After which they had to explore the tool independently and clear their doubts.

H/W

Language:- Learn spelling for dictation.

Workshop – Importance Of Weight Training

Workshop – Importance Of Weight Training

Dated : 6th, February, 2013

Dear Mothers,

Can you lift heavy vegetable bags/luggage easily?
Can you climb the stairs if the lift is not working?
Can you sit with your back straight continuous for 15-20 minutes without support?
Do you suffer from injuries more often(strain /sprain/fracture)?
Do you get tired easily?

If not then attend our Fitness Workshop on the ‘Importance of Weight Training for Mothers’.

EXERCISE IS THE PREVENTION AGAINST ILLNESS AND MEDICINE. LIFE BEGINS AT THE END OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE.

Have you ever heard the expression “use it or lose it”? It’s true! If you don’t use your body, you will surely lose it. Your muscles will become flabby and weak. Your heart and lungs won’t function efficiently. And your joints will be stiff and easily injured. Inactivity is as much of a health risk as smoking!

Want to feel better, have more energy and perhaps even live longer? Look no further than exercise. The health benefits of regular exercise and physical activity are hard to ignore. And the benefits of exercise are yours for the taking, regardless of your age, sex or physical ability. Need more convincing to start exercising?

Then this workshop is for you! We will be focusing on the importance of weight training and why it is must for a every female. And we will also tackle many common myths about weight training – such as – “That women will develop muscles” or that “it leads to weight gain” etc.
