The students from the Primary Section of grade 4 & 5 of Sreenidhi International School around 17 with their teachers visited the primary school in Aziznagar to conduct a reading program with the village school children from grade 5 of 40 students on the 26th February, 2020.
They came with books and manipulative ( learning aids, activity kits, building blocks and flash cards) that help immensely the village school children enjoy learning with ease. It has been a wonderful activity – a reading program and donation of books and manipulative to help the children learn effectively and meaningfully. It was a thoroughly enjoyable moment for the village school children interacting with SIS-Students, a truly learning experience to both of them.
The best part of it was the kind gesture of the PYP-5th graders (present) in helping the village school with a donation of wonderful, lovely reading material ( story books and picture books for learning about animals, flowers, vegetables etc) activity kits like building blocks and puzzles, flash cards matching the word, forming a sentence etc)
It is truly a big contribution. On behalf of KMR Foundation we conveyed our heartfelt thanks to the SIS-PYP dept and special thanks to Ms. Laurice & Ms. Kahkashan ( grade 4 &5 home-room teachers and the students for conducting this program in the village school for the children.
From the PYP 4 Team
Our hearts are still full from giving and from witnessing the interaction of the children! We haven’t asked our children about how they felt with the whole experience, but I think you would agree that there was a certain kind of satisfaction and joy that reverberated in the bus as we were going back to school.
What is most memorable to me is the relationship(s) that have been started because of the reading activity. I am convinced that we should nurture these relationships through consistent interaction with our children. I do hope that this is only the beginning.
It was such a pleasure spending time with you, the teachers we met and the children. We are so looking forward to working with you in nurturing the new relationships that the children have formed.
