INCULCATING A SENSITIVE OUTLOOK TOWARDS RELIGIOUS COMMUNITIES

08-09-2017

Education and learning is the amalgam of all the rich experiences felt and gained by the child inside the school and outside it. Keeping this philosophy of experiential learning in mind, Presidium Ashok Vihar planned a field trip for the students of grade 3. The trip was undertaken under the TBL theme ‘religious communities’, wherein the children got a chance to visit and explore four places of worship – temple, gurudwara, mosque and church and develop sensitivity towards all communities through this.


The religious fervour and unity in the students was apparent as they keenly listened to the chantings in the gurudwara, ate the prasad in the temple and respectfully sat in the church and mosque. Apart from being a great learning experience for the students, it was also an enjoyable trip for them. They enjoyed observing and visiting the different places. It was really a fulfilling experience for the children as well as the teachers.

FUN WITH NUMBERS ACTIVITY: BUILDING CONCEPTUAL UNDERSTANDING

01-09-2017

If we cast our mind back and begin to contemplate over the major concepts which we studied in our primary classes, then our mind, undoubtedly, gets enshrouded with 'mathematical operations', 'decimals' and 'data handling'. To make our students from grade 1 learn the basic concept of 'ones and tens' by developing their understanding of two-digit numbers, we conducted a fun-filled activity with Dienes blocks. Divided into multiple groups, the students tried to represent the number given to them by showing ones and tens through cubes and rods. Through the activity, students themselves drew the conclusion that number of rods is to be taken as 'tens' and number of cubes as 'ones'. The activity roped in a lot of interest and stimulated responses which substantiated vividness in our students' conceptual understanding.
