Early Childhood Education

This Walking Cylinder is made from a toilet roll, straws and other odd materials.

Abstract

The period from January to March is crucial both for the teachers and the students of X and XII in almost all the schools in India. Why is it so? It is because these students for the first time would be appearing for their X/XII board examinations and how different are these compared to the annual examinations of IX/XI?
Let us examine the table given below.

Use a straw and some paper and make this awesome glider or you can also call it a straw plane.

Taking short breaks allows us to maintain focus on a task, a study outlined on the University of Illinois’ News Bureau explains. We often expect children to concentrate on a lesson for an hour or more, and get frustrated when they lose focus.

Questions question our understanding of concepts, situations and ideas. There is no question about this. This is an account of the way one teacher, Kinzom Khampa, used the tool of enquiry to get children find the answers.

I have been working as a teacher in the Azim Premji School in Dineshpur (Uttarakhand) since 2012 and talk about behaviour in the class on a regular basis. As of now I am the Class Teacher of Class-4. Five children in the class abuse the others and indulge in misbehavior of a similar kind, especially in the absence of the teacher and this leads to even physical fights because of which there are problems in the conduct of the class and disturbance in the class-room teaching. A lot of time is spent sometimes in resolving these issues.

Unfortunately, keeping your children safe at home is a very difficult task. In the course of a normal day, children, regardless of the age, are exposed to a number of potential dangers. These dangers could result in cuts, bruises and scrapes to more serious medical problems such as broken bones, allergic reaction and head injuries.

While studying Social Sciences, students should be able to understand contemporary social issues as well as their experiences in the classroom and be able to link it all up with the subject. There is not just one way of evaluation. What is important to see is to what depth children have understood the topic and if they have been able to see its linkages to their daily life. If they are able to articulate their views in writing, related as they are to their experience, this would be fulfilling the objectives of education.
