Letter to Mom

The joy of writing a letter to mother. We received a kit from "Battees", Delhi based organization run by Shivani and Harnehmat. The kit is designed to encourage writing letters. This brought an opportunity to pause and think about one person in our lives and connect through a letter.

All ages participated with joy to write a letter to their mother. 

Thank you Shivani for sharing this with us.

Me - We Documentation

This week it was about exploring creativity through - Visualization, Collection, and Constraints. Many of us are very much familiar with ‘constarinst’ (we experience many at the campus). But it was difficult to find the difference between thinking and visualization. And also to collect out of the box (as one of the children expressed). 
We decided to explore it together - often we document our weekly journey individually - this brought an opportunity to do it together and we named it “WE” documentation.

Music in Gandhi.

One child decided to have 'Gandhi' theme in the music session. We have been having themes like colours, war, nature, festival, language etc as our themes for our music sessions but Gandhi theme felt very unusual. But this child was very clear of this theme.

Visualize to Learn

Jatre on visualization was to introduce kids to this tool. 

Lets help kids to get used to this wonderful tool. At the end of this note are some link to resources for parents/ facilitator.

The session began with pondering
What is visualization?
How it is different from seeing?
How is it diffierent from dreaming?

It is special imagination - in visual form.
In visualisation you visualize in details.

Just a minute FEAR

Jam just a minute - pick a topic and speak for a minute.

Topic was "my fears". 
We all have fear. But we don't talk about our fear much. We just spoke for a minute and that's all. None have a any suggestions to deal with it, none was looking for any solutions. We just came closer to our fears to embrace them, to accept them.

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.  

 Some expressions

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.
