2nd PCM of Sr.KG Sparkle and Kindle.

This time in PCM , we had discussed in detail the way we take Language , Math and UOI in the classes. Along-with this, we also discussed about the parenting styles which focused on self realisation on how we handle our kids in different situations. I’m sure this would have guided many parents to ponder upon their behaviour with kids.

The parents got an opportunity to have hands on experience in Language and Math literacy centres. Math cycle in PYP was also discussed in detail.

With regards to the current unit of inquiry i.e under the TDT :How we express ourselves , parents were divided in groups and each group expressed the story of ‘Cinderella’ using different forms of expression like dance, drama, music & singing, mime and visual arts ( drawing, painting). The same is done with the students also in the class. So the parents were able to practically do and understand what and how the kids learn in the class.

A heartfelt thanks to all those parents who attended and participated so enthusiastically in the PCM. Indeed, they are all PROACTIVE and COURAGEOUS!! Hoping to have 100% attendance in next PCM/PTC.
