SHOW & TELL ACTIVITY: A UNIQUE WAY TO LEARN ABOUT FRUITS
There’s an old saying - “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.’’ This is quite true as fruits play a vital role in our lives. Taking this view into consideration, Presidium, Faridabad recently organized a ‘Show and Tell’ activity on fruits for students of grade 1. In this activity, the Presidians brought related props, like toys, flashcards, and real fruits of their choice and spoke a few lines on the same. They also showcased their lingual talent with full pride and confidence in front of their teachers and friends. This activity provided them with a good platform to articulate their thoughts and develop exceptional oratory skills. Our little learners also gained knowledge about the importance of eating fruits in order to remain healthy.
ANIMAL MASK MAKING ACTIVITY FOSTERS OBSERVATION-BASED LEARNING
Mask making is a traditional way in which people transformed themselves into an animal, plant or character.
We recently organised a mask making activity which was truly enjoyed by our little Presidians of grade pre-nursery. Children actively participated in the hands on activity and learnt about different animals. The students wore the masks they created which was followed by an excellent dramatic and healing activity. Students became the animals their masks portrayed, then spoke for those beings in relation to human behavior towards nature. The day ended as an interesting observation-based lesson of mask making and different animals with ample dose of fun and learning.

EXTEMPORE COMPETITION: YOUNG SPEAKERS GET A MINUTE TO WIN IT!
An ‘Extempore’ is an impromptu speech in which the person has to speak on a given topic without any prior preparation. It helps in testing a child’s ability to think and connect with the audience. It also develops their communication skills, fluency, pronunciation and overall presentation skills, confidence, spontaneity, poise, composure etc. Taking this view into consideration, Presidium Faridabad, organized an ‘Extempore Competition’ for the students of grade 9 & 10 on the general current affairs in which they spoke a few lines on the respective topic for about a minute. Through this competition, the children were able to learn the skills of prioritizing and sequencing in order to display their logical thinking.
