Local_Market_Dec_7_2019_1

The local market is a business method that began
very early in several cultures to buy and sell products.

It is an event which sells self-produced goods and
enables crop exchange also. This method enables
self-sufficiency among the local communities by
promoting local goods!

In the second grade syllabus at our schools, we have
a lesson about local market. The teachers of one of
our schools took the students to the local market to
show them how it operates.

It’s an extremely happening place where the students
got to see fruit shops, food shops, flower plants, flower
pot sales, saplings, corn, peanut, sprouts, and even
petty items. Other than these, there were shops that
sold vegetables, rice, spices, tamarind, salt, butter, etc.

Our students went to every shop, spoke to the
shop-keeper and bought their favorite food items.
They were very interested, as they knew that this is
something new that they were learning. It was a lot
of fun for them.

This activity gave a live experience to the children about"
going to a local market, getting to know the things
available, and buying them. At Isha Vidhya, we
reinforce academics with real-life experiences, so that
students get a first-hand experience of what is being
taught!

We are as excited as you! Please free to share your
comments or write to us at global.giving@ishavidhya.org
with your inputs!

Multiplication_Activity_Dharmapuri_Nov_17_2019_1

Learning multiplication could be a tricky concept
for children to grasp.

Dharmapuri Isha Vidhya Mathematics teacher Rohini
planned an interesting activity to teach multiplication
to 4th grade students. Students were given flashcards,
symbols, and place value cards. Students were divided
into groups and instructed to arrange the place value cards
and asked to choose the number (multiplicand & multiplier)
on their own. They were asked to do the calculation and
find the answers. By this activity, students learnt how to
arrange numbers in the correct place values. The students
showed much more interest in the activity when compared
with learning the same concept in a regular class.

We are attaching a few pictures of the activity for your
attention. We hope that you appreciate the alternate
methods that we employ to make education more
interesting.

Editor’s Note:

Magic_Letter_Story_Activity_Dharmapuri_13112019_1
Magic_Letter_Story_Activity_Dharmapuri_13112019_1

The fifth grade students have a story in
their English curriculum called “The Magic
Letter Story”. The story is about a letter
written by a child to their friend. That letter
would be read while keeping it under a
flame.

Isha Vidhya Dharmapuri school teachers
Indira and Rohini decided to explain this
to the students by the way of an activity.
The students were asked to write messages
on papers using lemon extract and then let
them dry. The messages on paper were
then kept under a candle flame so that the
message can be seen. The activity invoked
a lot of wonder and awe in the midst of
students, who were inspired to do more such
activities to learn techniques.

Creative methods like these are used to
teach children the concepts, by the way of
self-directed activities, hands-on and
activity-based learning. This gives the
students a strong foundation on the concepts
that they learn, and prepare them to
keep concepts and practices in memory
by the way of activities.

Editor’s note: If you would like to be
continually engaged with the great work
that Isha Vidhya is doing, you might want
to consider starting a monthly recurring
donation for a small amount. You can do

Nativity certificate is a government document
that is issued by the State Governments of India
to certify that the individual has been residing
in a particular location for five or more years.
This certificate is issued in every state in
India and is used to get admission in schools and
for employment purposes. The certificate is issued
by a Special Tahsildar. To create an awareness about
Native Certificate among our students, 8th grade
Tamil teacher Kothai at the Isha Vidhya Dharmapuri
school planned an activity about applying for the
native certificate.

The school’s Principal acted as the Tahsildar.
Students filed their applications for getting native
certificates. Through this activity, students came
to know the procedure of filing the Native Certificate
form. They also learnt where to submit it. Since most
of the children were not aware of it, the activity
helped the children a lot in understanding the process.
It developed their skills of filling in the form and
talking to the officials to submit the application.

Activities like these enrich the students’ learning of
social skills and community processes. Isha Vidhya takes
care that students learn not just the academics but also
the required life skills to live well in the community.

Dharmapuri_Chloride_Nov_5_2019-1
Dharmapuri_Chloride_Nov_5_2019-1

The water quality in the Dharmapuri area in Tamilnadu
is of concern because of chemical levels in the ground
water. It is important for the residents to always test the
chemical levels in the water before usage.

Dharmapuri Isha Vidhya school has always been very
active in educating the students as well as the general
public (through campaigns) about the importance of
measuring chemical levels. About an year back, an NGO
organisation from Bengaluru volunteered to come to
Dharmapuri school and teach children about what flouride
level is and how to measure it.

On similar lines, as part of the regular ‘Tinkering Life Skills’
class conducted on Saturdays with the guidance of our
volunteers Atul and Shalini from London as part of their
‘Timeless Life Skills’ program, Isha Vidhya Dharmapuri
school students conducted “Residual Chloride” test using
the JAL-TARA water testing kit sponsored by Atul and
Shalini. The students learned about residual chloride and
finding chloride and its levels in the water bodies. They
were able to find the chloride levels in the drinking water
and water outlets.

Tests like these are an important safeguard against the risk
of microbial contamination. It’s great that students are
educated about these from the early stages of life.
