POU June Parent Engagement activity
Introduction to Performance of Understanding
Early Childhood Care and Education Programme conducted the first Performance of Understanding for June Month to conclude ‘All About Me’ theme. Parents were invited to spend a day in their child’s classroom. The aim of the event was to engage parents in their child’s school life and give them ideas to do the similar activities at home too. 90 per cent of the parents came to attend theevent.
The day started with parents and children coming and helping their children have breakfast. After finishing the breakfast, children along with their parents lined up for the Morning Prayer.Teachers encouraged the parents to sing the prayer and the National Anthem. The parents participated wholeheartedly.
The next activity of the day was circle time in their child’s classroom, where teachers took attendance and involved parents in talking about today’s date, weather and classroom rules. Teachers also discussed ‘All About Me’ theme and stressed on the importance of the theme and how various activities related to theme can be reinforced at home. The parents were also informed about their child’s daily routine.
After circle time the parents were shown their respective child’s performance folder, where a record of all activities done by them during the month are compiled. One of the activities was ‘All About Me’ Scrap book. Parents were asked to go through the scrap book and turn to the last page of the book, which, they were asked to complete with their children by making a family picture. The Parents and children participated enthusiastically and the results were veryastounding.
The day was concluded by displaying the best picture and asking parents if they had any queries with the teachers. The parents expressed their complete satisfaction over their wards progress and wanted this event to be held every month.
