Through playing children can evolve their social and cognitive skills, mature emotionally, and gain the self-confidence required to engage in new experiences and environments.
Learning is Experience
At Hallmark Public School; important emphasis is laid when it comes to making their students learn new things and topics. One such activity which recently took place was playing of “Dumb Charades”. The concept was quite different here. The students were taught idioms in Hindi by letting them play this game. The main idea of making them play was to develop life skills in a child. The faculty Ms.Monika Dewan believes that it is very much important for a child to first learn the essence of the language and Hindi being such a colloquial language; it becomes very much imperative for every student to learn the profundity of the language.
Learning idioms is considered as very boring and a tedious task for students; but the faculty makes sure that student’s attention should be drawn with utmost care. So as to make this practicable the faculty came up with the innovative idea so as to make the entire class engaged and participative. The result of that was the entire class was well versed with idioms so much so that they even started conversing in them on a particular day. The CBSE School in Panchkula makes sure that each activity they execute should be with relates to their syllabus and the amount of time a teacher spends in the classroom should be utilized in the most appropriate manner.
There is a famous saying by Confucius” I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.”
The quote is very well practiced in the teaching methodologies as the school accepts that such activities not only makes the learning’s better but also inculcates life skills in the formative years of a child growth and development. Also by conducting such activities; the analytical skills as well as the logical reasoning of a student is also ameliorated.
