Jatre - Trees with Abhiram

Abhiram, a Khoji from Swaraj, shared what all he has learnt about trees and farming in last few years.

It began with pondering
How did life started on the earth?
What is life?
What is forest?
What all helps in creating life ?
How to water the trees? Or where to water trees? At the roots, around the trees and on the leaves?

Tic Tac Toe

We all play games - we at Aarohi also use games to reflect and add value in our learning journey.

We played Tic-Tac-Toe in many different forms. We used the game to explore various skills we used the various works we did, what all we need to develop and what all we already have. The exercise was to get the vocabulary of various skills, explore that for to achieve anything we have certain skills, and we need to develop certain skills.

Self Feedback

At the campus, experiences come in many different forms. This week we traced the skills and analyzed if we needed to reduce or increase any activities or change our schedule.

Needs and Feelings

Bad News - Bad feelings for each other over some of the behaviors - “He took my stuff without asking me. He pushed me. He was teasing me. He was namecalling me. He was interfering with my work. He did not listen to me…”

Good news - Opportunity to understand “needs and wants”. And explore the alternate communication or communication of passion and expression.
