English sessions by content team

-Logeshwari, Saranya

Bhuvana, Tamilselvi, and Vasanth from the content team are taking sessions on English for the team. So far we have completed present tense, past tense and common mistakes that we do in speaking and writing in English. Every week on Wednesdays we have our English sessions in the morning as a team. We have assignments based on the session that was taken.

We (auraauro team members) put up blogs and reflect back the weak. In order to improve our writing and speaking skills, we are having these sessions.  The sessions clarify the doubts and it makes more sense and awareness of the mistakes when others do them or we do them.

For example, we learnt that a sentence cannot start with ‘So’. When others/we start the sentence saying ‘so’ we realize it is a mistake and we correct them.

We learn more from our mistakes and it is an opportunity for ourselves to learn them and grow.

Thanks to the content team!

Friday session with STEMLand scaling group – dienes blocks

~Sundar

On 2019/10/03 we had the second meet with the Scaling group. More information on the first meet can be found at : Link

This time Abilash started by sharing what he did in Auroville schools : A simple way to explain how a DC  motor works.

Next as a team we did simple calculations of how addition and subtraction work with carry (Exchanging a rod for 10 units and vice versa or a plate for 10 rods) using the dienes blocks, and later moved to multiplication (Area story) and division with some common misconceptions children have.
