So, the number of days for submission and the number of topics have been reduced for this time.

We have shortlisted a few topics to give you a starting point, but you are free to write on any topic of your choice. You can choose to compose a poem, write an article or create a poster/artwork. Parent articles are welcome in Hindi/Gujarati as well. (No hard copies will be accepted)

[Highlight Of The Day]

Students got excited when the topic for narrative writing was revealed to them- “My most memorable night out”. We together as a class did pre-writing for the same wherein each one of them participated enthusiastically.

Students used manipulatives like montero cubes, graph paper, etc to construct meaning. They formed groups and pairs to demonstrate various decimal numbers through the same. They thoroughly enjoyed doing it while also developing the concept of decimals.
