This week started with good and bad news – when our pet team went for Tiger’s (cat) rabies vaccination, he ran away (Tiger was very scared after car ride).Previous week we talked about sterilization of our pets and on Monday we found that one of our cat (Pepsi), gave birth to two kittens.We all had mixed feelings and responses to both the situations.All kids are taking care of Pepsi and ensuring she is not hungry anytime and she is well taken care.
In the midst of all this we continued with our stimulation on “thinking skills creativity”. Finding letter “U” in different places in different ways, created a lot of excitement. At the end of the stimulation we introduced “presentation”. Each child presented what does “Thinking Skills -Creativity” means to her/him. It was for one minute. Each was given feedback, and asked question at the end of presentation.. This brought involvement in different way.
In safety lab fire team updated us with fire extinguisher and their plans to make their own fire extinguishers. The animal team told us about Indian Tiger centipede. The first aid and hygiene team made some posters for guest to follow toilet instructions. Self defense shared what to do when someone is harassing you in movie hall.
Introduction of video game, then knowing about Diorama and making actual bridge was interesting series of events. Asked kids to dream,guess, predict if they do not know the details – start with your dream country and city, what will be the climate there, temperature and so on. Asked them to choose they want to score in multiple of 7 (14, 21, 35 etc). Some kids were disappointed that they could not see 3-D of their drawing. I was a bit apprehensive, what to introduce in this topic. If I talk about what is Architecture then it becomes only talking. The activities gave them experience of what is Architecture, I did not have to talk much.Kitchen team surprised us with converting the whole kitchen into a restaurant and serving us food.
Bella, Smiley and Pepper (our dogs) are growing up. They bring different challenges for us – with Bella on heat, we have many stray dogs in the campus, Bella is trying to establish herself as alpha dog of the pack, Pepper is trying to save Bella from stray dogs…………….and what we do in this whole dynamic? The pets team came back to action. Giving protection to Smiley who is frightened by Bella. ensuring all get due attention.
Thought club was on various topics from to sterilized pets or not, why we behave differently with adults and kids and peers, how to take care of Pepsi and kittens, how to take care of resources and so on?Sports is all time favourite and brings lot of dirt and appreciation. We could not play one day and that was a big disappointment 🙂
The we week ended with thought on “what is punishment?”. Where does it comes from? What all different ways do we face punishment? What is consequence? WHat is natural, logical and illogical consequence?
