Happy Teachers Day!

This week we have been busy working on learning the different ways of solving conflicts. 

We began by playing a small game in which we pushed against each other to understand what if feels like when one is in conflict.

We then saw a small video that taught us the 5 steps to take to resolve a conflict amicably.


STATA

                The steps we learnt were - S - stop and think
                                       T - talk about your feelings
                                       A - ask questions
                                       T - team up for solutions
                                       A - agree on solutions

We looked at the story of - The Zax. Post the story we sat and applied the STATA to see how we could solve the conflict if we were the Zax.

Take a look at how we did -





We learnt about 5 Strategies to solve problems, such as avoid (keep away), compromise (half - half), collaborate (working together). accommodate( do it together for everybody) and force(fighting).


Stay tuned to see how we used this strategies to solve the different conflict scenarios given to us!

We completed our persuasive writing assignment. So moms and dads get ready to get your little ones these pets........




We made our essential agreements to follow during reading circles with our Grade 2 learning buddies.

In Math, we have been working on our place value posters.


Daily morning Math

Playing the mine field game to work on our team building skills.

We further strengthened our understanding of our 'Rings of responsibility' on the internet.

As rightly quoted .......Teachers open the doors but you must enter yourself.
During our assembly this week , our PYP students with the help of Ms. Pramila, Ms. Julie and Prashant sir put together a lovely celebration to make our day special. Thank you for the lovely assembly.
A very happy teachers day to all the teachers everywhere.
