The song has ended, but the melody lingers on…………………..

The children of Pre-primary celebrated their Graduation Day ceremony on Thursday, 26th February 2015. On this day they graduated from Pre-primary to grade 1. It is the first step towards formal education. Mrs. Monalisa Dash graced the ceremony with her enlightened thoughts and holistic approach towards upbringing of the children. The ceremony began with a prayer song and a welcome dance. Our little Graduates summarized their journey of Pre-primary through a skit. The Nursery and Jr. KG children mesmerized the audience with an amazing musical skit. Last but not the least our new Graduates spread the message of their graduation through a heart touching song.

Namaste, dear parents

Our activities this fortnight…………

News from the PRE-PRIMARYDSC06085

It’s hard to believe that we have come to the end of the academic year. Pre-primary has completed  their portions and now we have been revisiting concepts done through the year.

Parents often ask what they can do to help their child in getting ready for first grade. We have been giving suggestions in our previous newsletters.

Getting your child ready with reading skills is an important area you could help the school with. When adults read aloud to children, children have the opportunity to hear new words which help them with their own independent reading. In addition, reading aloud stimulates imaginations, expands attention spans, and nurtures emotional development. Children who are read to at home and who read to an adult at home have a higher success rate in school.

In the area of math, our goal as teachers and parents is to help the child develop number sense. To accomplish this goal we recommend continuing some of the activities we have been doing with the children in the past year, such as : skip counting by 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. Counting backward from 20 , or to look for patterns in everyday life. Sorting objects in a variety of ways and by more than one attribute.

Besides revising concepts children are busy preparing for the Graduation day ceremony. We have had a terrific time working with the Sr. KG classes. This is always a bittersweet time for us as teachers. They are so ready to move on to the first grade but we will miss them.

As learning and teaching continues beyond the school environment, parents were invited to work with waste and create best out of it along with their kids. Parents participated with great enthusiasm and came up with amazing ideas like making photo frames, wall hangings, flower vase, plant holders and the list could go on.

Seasons greetings!

We want to first say a big thank you to all of you, who have continued to support us here at Suchitra Academy. It has been an honour to care for and teach your wonderful children this year. 2014 has been a wonderful year for all of us. Each of our children has grown a little taller learned a few new words and continues to blossom each day. We are proud to be a part of your amazing children’s development. There were many new things we learned together and are still continuing to learn.

Introduction of new theme

To continue with our learning, new theme “Joy of Sharing and Caring / Fantasy Land” was introduced on Monday 1st December. Importance of sharing and caring for our friends, family and people around is being emphasized upon through this theme. Children are also learning to differentiate between the real world and fantasy world through various stories.

group discussions were held in individual classes, children were encouraged to think and imagine a day without any help around, kids came up with amazing answers. To express their gratitude towards the drivers, maids, guards, and gardeners few kids made cards and few got flowers and sweets for them. Snigda from Sr. KG B got oranges for all the helpers. Later kids served lunch and expressed their thanks to the people who help them at school.

Effective parenting workshop

Points covered in the workshop were, effective discipline techniques, the power of encouragement, balancing work and family, balancing love and discipline, effective parent-child communication, enhancing child’s self-esteem, parenting as a team and hassle free homework.

POINTS TO NOTE

  1. We have a large collection of lost articles, including school jackets. It’s a pity that no one claims these things and there is no labeling so that we could hand over the stuff to kids. Parents please make sure that all articles which can be labeled are labeled.
  2. Children must be given small age-appropriate responsibilities at home. Please don’t underestimate them, they will surprise you with their ability.
  3. Grade 5 onwards you must allow children to handle small amount of money too. This increases their confidence as well as improves math speed for simple calculations.
  4. Grade Paly Group to X, admissions are in progress.

As usual we remain committed to quality and consistency.

Warm Regards
