Student of the month of September: Harshika Baid( The due appreciation for Harshika Baid, she has achieved tremendous progress in the last month)

Stars of the day: Twishi Ruchandani and Prisha Mehta ( They have written mind-blowing poems in the ICT integrated language slot)

The little creature :

I was all alone in my room.

When suddenly I felt something wrong,

I heard a ding as sound as a bell,

I heard a ring as loud as a crowd.

 

I went down to the hall.

The scary noise was coming from the kitchen!

I went towards the creepy noise.

When suddenly,I saw a shadow very tall!

 

With lots of courage I went inside.

Everything was messed up as a fish market.

I picked up a bowl on the floor and saw,

It was just a small little mouse.

By -Twishi Ruchandani

Title- The silly poem

 

The ghosts,

Are as scary as bears.

The hosts,

Are as small as hares.

The stones,

Are as hard as bones.

The crime,

Is as bad as slime.

This cook,

Is as intelligent as a book.

This is the silly poem.

By-  Prisha Mehta

Language:

Students have to read the poem ‘Inner Sight – The Blind Boy’ and write down the main idea (7  lines minimum) in their Language E.E notebook:

O SAY what is that thing call’d Light,
Which I must ne’er enjoy;
What are the blessings of the sight,
O tell your poor blind boy!

You talk of wondrous things you see,
You say the sun shines bright;
I feel him warm, but how can he
Or make it day or night?

My day or night myself I make
Whene’er I sleep or play;
And could I ever keep awake
With me ’twere always day.

With heavy sighs I often hear
You mourn my hapless woe;
But sure with patience I can bear
A loss I ne’er can know.

Then let not what I cannot have
My cheer of mind destroy:
Whilst thus I sing, I am a king,
Although a poor blind boy.

Unit Of Inquiry: 

Find out various organizations (NGO) worldwide which work for underprivileged children and write on a piece of paper.  Mention what kind of opportunities do they provide to the children.

Highlights and homework – Day 6 – October 5th

Life class: Learners were made acquainted with sexuality education. They checked their prior knowledge and further enhanced their understanding by watching the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3T7Sox_h9Zs

UOI: For the 2nd LOI – How children respond to the challenges, risks and opportunities (with resilience – related concept) and by being courageous (learner profile), respecting (attitude) their opportunities, children were given a task of throwing a paper ball into the basket. The basket was placed at the front of the class and each child had to throw the ball from the place they were sitting. They reflected that their environmental and physical challenges made it difficult to achieve the goal. While the ones who were sitting in the front, the task was easy and for the one who was sitting behind, it became a challenge. They also made the connection of this task with real-life issues in the world. Through the success of some students who were sitting afar, they also concluded that their challenge can turn into success either by luck (which is rare) but mostly by being resilient and courageous. Further, they saw a video of a boy (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dkn4uLkciE) who deals with challenges and risks in his life with positive spirit, resilience and discipline.

Learners also recollected the engagements and learnings of this unit so far in order to write a weekly reflection.

Homework:

UOI:

  1. Write the reflection using the blob football. (Refer to the email for details)
  2. Write the meaning of resilience in your UOI notebook. How will you develop resilience in you? Why do you need to be resilient?
