Show and tell of family tree

## Show and tell of family tree

Show & Tell gives anÃ‚Â opportunity to learners to enhance their presentation skills as well as build onÃ‚Â theirÃ‚Â confidence. In the current Unit of Inquiry, learners presented their family tree. They were enthusiastically sharing detailsÃ‚Â about their family history, while some of them couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t as the same was not shared by the parents!Ã‚Â I requestÃ‚Â theÃ‚Â parents to get involved in their childÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s learning engagements through home assignments which in turn would yield improved outcomes.

Grade 8 _ Math _ All sections _ Highlights of last week (13th July to 17th July, 2015)

## Grade 8 _ Math _ All sections _ Highlights of last week (13th July to 17th July, 2015)

Dear all,

Here is a brief update of what we did from 13th July to 17th July.

1) We started the week with the topic- Surds and where do we use Surds.

2) Then, students were explained the method of simplifying the Surds (Eg- Square root of 18 would be 3 suare root 2) and were given practice by giving few sums on it.

3) We Ã‚Â took all of them to ”Math Lab” to explain the concept of Pythagoras Theorem. They also explored different Math resources.

4) Video on Pythagoras Theorem was also shown in the class to them to get a clear idea about it along with discussion on Pythagoras equation.

5) Unit test paper- 1 (which was taken on 10th July) was also distributed in one of the Math classes.

6) We also started with the sums on Pythagoras Theorem.

Below is the glimpse of the classes conducted in Math Lab to introduce Pythagoras Theorem.

Regards

Family Visit: Joint Family-Jr. KG IndigoÃ‚Â

## Family Visit: Joint Family-Jr. KG IndigoÃ‚Â

As a part of a learning engagement for our ongoing unit Family And Friends, our young learners went on a visit to the home of a joint family. Here they came up with the idea that this is a very big family and they were further on given the term Joint Family. They came to know about the roles and responsibilities of each of the family members and also learnt about the composition of a joint family.
We are really thankful and appreciate Kush Koshiya’s parents for volunteering and allowing us to visit their home for this learning engagement. Thank you once again!😊

Regards,

😊 Suchi Dakoria 😊
