Reaching out with a Message

Creativity is the power to connect the seemingly unconnected."- William Plomer

Students of Einstein campus had the opportunity to participate in the Message drive for Indian Athletes who are participating in London Olympics 2012. Students created posters wishing India a good luck for London Olympics organized by Olympics Gold Quest board.

The main purpose of this drive was to increase awareness among students about Indian athletes and also gather messages which were handed over to the athletes. This was a huge morale boost for the athletes as well. The poster making activity was directed by the Visual Arts teacher, Ms. Pratibha Raju very well. Students were very enthusiastic in creating their compositions on paper. They really felt very proud & their patriotic feelings were shaped on the posters. The program also built awareness among the students. The inquiry began with the students inquiring about the number of athletes participating and the number of games India was participating in. The Creativity of the students reflected in the posters. All the aspects were well illustrated in their use of space, colour, theme and slogans. There was no limit for the imagination that these children portrayed in their artwork.

The Olympics Gold Quest board selected works of our students, Aarti, Rachana, Chandralekha Gaurav Dey of X and Shwetha Raju of VII. The drawings and posters were displayed and presented to the athletes Mary Kom, Vijay Kumar, Sanjeev Rajput and Annu Raj at a special event in a press conference on 7th June, to wish luck for London Olympics 2012.

Insight into Germination

The children of grade I are always excited to learn new things. keeping this in mind, we planned to do a classroom activity related to our ongoing topic ‘Plants are life sustaining resources for all living things’.

All of us together sowed few mustard seeds in small cups and poured adequate water. Placed them near the window to ensure sufficient sunlight is provided. It was fun to gather near the window with children every day to observe the process. The students were excited to observe the changes and we also maintained a record. Over the period, the seeds germinated in the small cups. We had a detailed discussion over this in the classroom.

This activity led to lot of learning and sensory skills enhancement.
