Highlights and homework – 8th July’16

Highlights and homework – 8th July’16

UOI:

In today’s UOI session, students were made to word in groups in order to draw/write anything that came to their mind when they thought of “PEACE” on the given chart paper. After this, they shifted to the other group’s table and destroyed that group’s work piece. After some time, they went back back to their own chart which was now distorted and were asked to reconstruct it. They came up with statements like “Ma’am, it’s not possible to put all the pieces back. It’s completely destroyed”. They then reflected on the following questions:-

~How were you feeling while you were creating your beautiful chart?

~What made you destroy other’s chart?

~ How did you feel while destroying it?

~ How did you feel when you saw your beautiful chart being destroyed?

~ Was it easy to reconstruct your tattered chart?

~ Lesson learnt?

Later on, as a class, we went through a speech by Sundar Pichai about the cockroach theory. Through this reading, students acknowledged the fact that maintaining peace is not just about being silent but not to react, rather respond thoughtfully.

Maths:
We, as a class, solved some subtraction questions related to integers using jodo blocks and later on, some questions were given to students to solve in their math notebook.

Dear Parents,

This week the students took a Formative Assessment on Descriptive writing. The students were taught how to plan an essay using a mind-map.  They were informed about the topics last Friday and were asked to plan and come.  This gave them enough ideas and time to produce quality work at the same time ensuring they learn how to apply their ideas in a limited timeframe.

As  part of reading and comprehension, the students read three passages and identified Setting / Verbs used and impact/ adjectives/ words of fear and words of beauty/ senses appealed to in the passage.

We began with the unit “Burden of Guilt” with the students. We began with an excerpt from Macbeth (Pg.77 Empowering English) and explored the use of language and how it conveys feelings of a certain character.

In Bookclub, students presented the books they read in Book Circles, where they answered the questions from their classmates and teachers.

Regards

Grade 7 team

Dear parents,

Students haven’t been regular with finding meanings of words and hence it has been difficult to cover as much syllabus as planned. They have been given consequences su that they could realise the error that they are making.

We have almost completed Book 1 and now are on Book 2, chapter 1.

Regards,

Smruti
