STUDENTS ENHANCE THEIR GENERAL KNOWLEDGE WITH QUIZ COMPETITION
“Information is common, Knowledge is valuable, wisdom is precious.”
It is true that knowledge comes with a deep understanding of the topic and quizzes give us a deep understanding. In order to promote healthy competition and build general awareness, a Quiz Competition on different themes like the Indian States and Capitals, Union Territories, Monuments of India, Writers, Currencies, Flags of different countries, and Current Affairs was organized by ‘The Storytellers’ Academy of Mass Communication. The quiz was in two rounds through MS Teams for both online and offline students. The young Presidians enthusiastically participated and proved that even during this pandemic situation they are learning and expanding their knowledge. It was a new experience for the students as this time they attempted the quiz in a hybrid model and had different rounds.
STORYTELLING GIVES WINGS TO OUR PRESIDIANS IMAGINATION
A wise man once said, “After nourishment, shelter, and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.”
It’s the stories that give wings to our imagination and take us to places beyond the boundaries of our physical world and into the land of fairies, dragons, and wishing trees. It is in our imagination that we embrace things and situations that we shy away from the real world. Since time immemorial, storytelling has been an integral part of our childhood. To keep the tradition going and to incite curiosity and the love for reading in children, a storytelling competition was held by Presidium. The young, enthusiastic storytellers armed with their props came forth with wonderful tales. While some stories gave them food for thought and some reinforced moral values. The stories were judged based on the expression, confidence, and presentation skills of the children.
STUDENTS EXPAND THEIR VOCABULARY WITH SPELLATHON COMPETITION
To enrich the vocabulary, pronunciation, and understanding of words, an Intra-Class Spellathon Competition was recently conducted at Presidium. Featuring multiple rounds like - spell bee, word hunt, unjumble the jumbled, and who am I, it was a fun-filled contest. The students were asked to spell words taken from their curriculum book and day-to-day life. The judges were also abuzz with excitement, cheering for students. The participants took part in the competition enthusiastically. They got exposure to a world of new words and won accolades for their brilliant performances.
STUDENTS ENHANCE THEIR KNOWLEDGE ABOUT FRACTIONS
Fraction is an important topic in elementary grades. At the same time, it is one of the most challenging topics for students to understand. The concept of fractions may be well introduced in second grade with manipulatives but they need to go through a gradual process moving from the concrete, the semi-concrete, and the abstract in order for them to see fractions as numbers. Presidium conducted an activity on fractions where students recognized parts and wholes both visually and numerically. They understood which number in a fraction is the numerator and which is the denominator. They were able to identify which values are greater than or lesser than. Students will now apply their new knowledge of fractions by creating a fraction museum with manipulatives.
STUDENTS PROPAGATE THE DIVINE MESSAGE OF GURU NANAK DEV JI
Presidium celebrated the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji with great zeal and enthusiasm. A special assembly was conducted to mark the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji. The students marked the Parkash Utsav with various activities. They also shared useful information relating to the life and teachings of Guru Nanak Dev besides singing Shabads and holy hymns. Students came dressed in traditional Sikh attire. The assembly started by paying floral tribute to Guru Nanak Dev followed by information related to his life and teachings.
STUDENTS STRENGTHEN THEIR GRAMMAR SKILLS WITH PREPOSITIONS
To enhance the understanding and construct sentences using the prepositions, a Preposition Activity was conducted at Presidium. In this activity, they had to combine prepositions of position with household objects. The students were asked to put the object in different positions with the help of glass and object. They enjoyed the session because they found this activity very compelling. They were able to distinguish prepositions of time and place from each other and also recognize prepositional phrases and state that they were composed of prepositions and their objects. They understood the concept because they learned with the help of learning by doing.
