Joy of Process

The joy was planning a whole day trip to buy Trampoline
The joy was in assembling by self
The joy was in understanding its component
The joy was in debating and arguing in assembling the Trampoline
The joy was in installing
The joy was in understanding the do's and dont's of care
The joy was in the whole process.

My SPACE

Empowerment means “I am able”. We believe we all require self-reflection to truly understand our potential. Introduced S.P.A.C.E. framework as a way to explore self. We did this with small activities for each element of SPACE. Realise that “I am the only one who will stay with myself the whole life”, realise how important it is to know what kind of SPACE I am creating for myself inside me.

 

S for Self - What do believe about SELF? I can or can't? IN every endeavor let me observe my thoughts about myself and my capabilities.

Emotions

I am sad, I am angry, I am bored...do the feeling have limited vocabulary? Or we feel only within these limited reach of feelings? What about the feeling of rejection, respect, joy, peaceful, remorse, hostile, inferior, superior, dejection,  success, overwhelming...To explore the vocabulary of feelings, the game of making a tower with playing cards was enough. A detailed emotion chart brought an opportunity to explore wider vocabulary of emotions.

Experiencing Open Learning - summer week 3 - 2018

Open learning is not only about children but it's about all of us. It's about life and not only about learning. We don't want in our life someone else to dictate. We like to do what we like to do, it's "me" driven, "me" leader of my life. If we are an essential creature who likes their lives to be in our hands, why not first 25yrs of life in our hands?

Schedule

Some parents asked us to help in replicating the same schedule at home as Aarohi. It's not possible to just replicate schedule of one space to other space, as each space have different flavors. And that difference flavour brings an opportunity to understand the concept of schedule and planning rather duplicating.

Few parents are already doing at home and they have been able to bring harmony in their home learning environment. So this note is for all who are still seeking some guidance.

Many Teachers

 multiple children of different ages presented 10 minutes session on an area of their interest.

One talked about bacteria in plants and microscope. He took few hours for this 10 minutes session - reading, researching and compiling the information.

One taught a magic trick. He knew the tricks. He spent time in preparing material for each participant and thinking what everybody will gain from his session.

The journey of flowers

She got interested in wildflowers.
She would go around the campus in search of flowers. She would spend hours observing those flowers, spot tiniest of the flower while walking around. 
This year she started reading about flowers in details. Then she got interested in taxonomy and she started reading more about them.
Now she is reading botany books to understand the structure of the various families.
And this was enough for her to give a session on "flower and their families".
