SALUTING THE TEACHERS, THE CREATOR OF ALL OTHER PROFESSIONS
"Teachers affect eternity; No one can tell where their influence stops."- Henry Brooks Adams
We celebrate Teachers’ day every year throughout the country on 5th September. Students express their gratitude and appreciation for their teachers on this day. This day is dedicated to Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan – the second President of India. The teachers once again have raised their benchmark during these pandemic situations as their homes have turned into their online classrooms, their Whiteboards have been replaced by Mobiles and laptops. Teachers again have proved that they are UNSTOPABLES in shaping and nurturing young minds. To present gratitude and token of appreciation, our young Presidians conducted a Special Thanksgiving Assembly for their teachers where they were dressed up and enacted as their favourite teachers. They were involved in activities like fun games and creating crafts for their lovely teachers.
PRESIDIANS HONE THEIR WRITING SKILLS WITH ARTICLE WRITING!
An article is an expression of one’s thoughts on an issue or a subject logically and coherently written in meaningful paragraphs. Writing an article is a challenging task; It needs creativity, good vocabulary, good knowledge of the subject, and skill to organize ideas. Students were introduced and informed about the format of article writing. Articles are generally composed of four parts: the headline, lead, body, and conclusion. Through online classes, few activities were taken up for their conceptual clarity. The students were given various topics to explore and express their views in the form of articles. Students participated in the activity very enthusiastically and enriched their vocabulary and writing skills. They also learned how to sum up an article in chronological order in sync with the events occurring.

Every habitat on our planet is home to various animals and plants that are uniquely adapted to live there. An engaging investigation on Animal Adaptation by fourth Grade thinkers in Presidium was organized. Students learned all about how animals adapt to their environment, with fascinating facts, pictures, videos, fun activities, etc. In this activity, all the scholars were assigned an animal that had a series of adaptations. For that, they created an attractive poster that showed these unique features of the animals. This engagement helped our animal researchers connect with the idea of animal adaptation, along with facilitating creative thinking and extensive research and reading. It provided learners with an opportunity to learn by doing, in turn strengthening the learning.

PRESIDIANS ENHANCE THEIR HINDI GRAMMAR SKILLS!
जब दो व्यंजन मिलकर बोले या लिखे जाते हैं उन्हें संयुक्त व्यंजन कहते हैं। इसमें पहले व्यंजन में स्वर नहीं होता जैसे क्ष, श्र, त्र, ज्ञ आदि। हमने प्रेसीडियम के छात्रों का संयुक्त व्यंजन से परिचय करवाया। और छात्रों ने अपनी समझ को दर्शाते हुए इन अक्षरों का अभ्यास किया व इन अक्षरों से शब्द बनाये। उन्होंने इन शब्दों को बड़ी ही सुंदरता के साथ प्रस्तुत किया। सभी छात्रों इन नए अक्षरों के नए रूप को समझते हुए बड़ा ही उत्साह दिखाया और उन्हें कक्षा में अलग अलग तरीके से प्रस्तुत किया। छात्रों को संयुक्त व्यंजन सिखाने का मुख्य उद्देश्य उन्हें इन शब्दों से परिचित कराना था ताकि वे उनका उपयोग कर सकें और शब्द बना सकें। इस गतिविधि के बाद, वे ऐसा करने में सक्षम थे। इन छात्रों में नया कुछ सीखने में उत्साह की कोई कमी नहीं होती और वह हर चुनौती को बड़ी ही सरलता के साथ स्वीकार कर उसे पूरा करते है।
STUDENTS LEARN THE CAUSE OF DIFFERENT PHASES OF MOON
The fragment of the Moon that we can see from Earth on any given night is called the Moon's phase. In an attempt to incite curiosity amongst Presidians as to what causes the Moon phases and why the Moon emerges to be a different shape every night, a provocative activity was organized for our Grade 4 students. Based on the month-long research of the different phases of the Moon by our students, the activity helped the prying minds learn about the eight Phases of Moon, namely, New Moon, Waxing Crescent, First Quarter, Waxing Gibbous, Full Moon, Waning Gibbous, Third Quarter, and Waning Crescent. Our aspiring young students showcase the different phases of the moon in a very creative manner. The students shared PPT Presentation also to depict the theme. Again one more theme imparted to our Presidian in a fun-filled Way. They also learned that the Moon doesn't emit light itself; the moonlight is the Sun's light reflected off the lunar surface.
