Presidium organized an activity in the subject TBL called “Making seasonal trees from paper bag.” It is a great way to teach our students of Grade -2, how innovatively they can reuse brown paper bags to make beautiful seasonal trees. Presidians explored the changes in the appearance of the trees in different seasons. Based on their observations they have created seasonal trees by using paper bags. In connection with representing the seasons, our bright scholars created trees representing different seasons like they added cotton balls for winter, colorful leaves for spring, green leaves for summer and orange / yellow leaves for autumn. It proved to be a fun-filled activity wherein students were acquainted with insight aesthetically, enhancing their fine motor skills and learning about seasons.
Self-expression is a vital part of understanding anything and enjoying it to the fullest. We, at Presidium, strongly believe in freedom of expression. To give voice to the expression, an activity WHO AM I? related to the character description was conducted in grade 3, wherein the students were shown the pictures of their favorite characters and described them by using different describing words. Our confident Presidians wrote interesting sentences about their favorite characters as well. Through this fun activity, students developed a rich understanding of characters through imagination and interaction. Also, the students enrich their vocabulary being shared in groups by their friends.
