First Day at School

“No, I don’t want to go today.” “Nothing happens on the first day”. “Why the schools open so early?” And then the long faces from the time they are getting ready to the time they are off to school. The parents can totally agree with this scenario for the first few days or weeks. The First-day jitters are not uncommon. The anxious faces full of unknown fear, the perplexity or the inner turmoil of these young ones make everyone’s heart melt. Though the concerned staff members immediately make it a point to put them at ease however the anxiousness takes time to recover. The first week normally is emotionally challenging for both the child and the parents. But slowly and gradually it goes on decreasing till the time the child is adjusting with his/her surroundings. The children after spending a comfortable 1.5 to 2 months at home find it difficult to instantly cope up for a minimum of 5-7 hours with total strangers. The task goes humongous when everything

Delay in submitting assignments

“Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do and Attitude determines how well you do it” Work submission done two weeks before the deadline, two days before the deadline, two hours or two minutes before the deadline makes no difference to the teachers unless and until it is done after the specified date. They are marked in the same manner. Now, this delay in submission is really procrastination, a laid-back attitude or a constant pressure of giving 100%? Are our students really to be blamed for late submissions? Today leaving things to the last minute has become ubiquitous not only with youngsters but many of the adults as well. We try and over stress ourselves to the deadline. This work culture has created a dilemma for teachers who are continuously trying to extract work from them. And then it is difficult for the students as well to emerge out of this habit even in later years as they lack in judging the importance of time. It is not always ne

Preparing Students for Future

Future is uncertain and unpredictable and as said by one of the futurists, Ray Kurzweil, “we won’t experience 100 years of progress in 21 st century – it will be more like 20,000 years of progress at today’s rate”, imagine the amount of input needed by teachers and the students to mentally prepare themselves for such a big leap. Teaching has always been synonymous to making a child literate but in the present scenario, we prefer not only making them literate but also making them aware. The ongoing significant changes from being just learners to being the decision makers about what to learn and how to learn will herald the education world. It would be taken by storm and unsurmountable changes and unthinkable situations would be dealt with. World Economic Forum strictly highlights the staggering gap between what people learn and what they actually need. The solution to this unseen blizzard would be opening our arms to it and welcoming the changes. Becoming what is expec

Time Management

In today’s world the most important task for any human being is to manage  time . If you face troubles meeting deadlines, if you keep running haywire for completion of tasks or even if you really find it difficult to take out  time  for your family then probably you are one of the candidates who seriously need to work out on your  time  management skills. Time  Management actually refers to the ability of a person to use his/her  time  productively at work or at home. We have 24 hours in a day, in which we need 8 hours of sleep so that our minds could function properly. This is a proven reality and very less could be done to make changes to it. We all are slowly and gradually becoming the slaves of  time  however here we’ll talk about the art of mastering it. As the number of hours in a day cannot be increased we can definitely work on changing our attitude that may help us in future to become organized. For enhancing our  time  management skills we should first learn to

Developing Reading Habits in Little Ones

The moment a child opens his/her eyes we want them to be good readers. As parents we always want them to be the best. And our definition of best starts with READING. For inculcating some good reading habits we should acknowledge certain facts like we can never force them to read something which they don’t like. For example if a child is interested in reading ghost stories probably one should never force him or her to read science fictions. Secondly, it would be great if you could put books at places where they can lay their hands on. All children are curious by nature. When they find something colorful lying around and within their reach they would definitely like to open it . And once opened there’s no looking back. They might not generate an interest instantly, it might take them a day or two but then the result would be positive. Thirdly, If they want to involve you please be happy to do so. Don’t abstain yourself by passing statements like “we are tired and maybe we’l

Conserve Fuel

Yes…..I conserve precious resources …..Do  you???? The energy crisis in the country is becoming graver by the day and it is every individual’s responsibility to save  natural resources. We need to educate and advocate the judicious use of natural resources and propagate resource conservation. Resource Conservation lays emphasis on saving water, fuel, paper and electricity targeting the young brigade of the country, as they are the ultimate beneficiaries of conservation efforts made by us today. “To waste, to destroy our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to them amplified and developed.”   - Theodore Roosevelt   Change begin within us. As active citizens we must at least save our share…. spreading   the awareness is just a click away…. Earth provides enough to satisfy e
