As the city bathes itself with the cool and refreshing raindrops after the hot sweltering days of summer, the students of Don Bosco Primary Matunga welcomed the monsoon with open arms by celebrating Monsoon Week from 7th August to 11th August, 2017.
To make teaching learning a joyful experience for the learners, the teachers decided to include a variety of happy activities for the students. The week began with the children grooving to the tune of catchy rain songs, which were enacted with much happiness and cherubic expressions. Important brain storming discussions were held in the respective standards on the importance of rain, how it affects the environment, etc. The children watched videos on rain water harvesting techniques as water is one of the fastest depleting natural resource in current times. The corridors and class bulletin boards were decorated with attention seeking slogans on charts prepared by the students with the help of their parents thus creating awareness among the students about water and its judicious use.
The entire week comprised engaging activities by each standard such as using wool to depict the coils of the snail’s shell (Std I), utilizing umbrella cutouts and writing the best things they like about monsoon (Std II), learning to make paper fish in motion (Std III) and writing on the cut out of a cloud the effects of heavy rain and scanty rainfall (Std IV).
It was an enthusiastic learning journey for all, as the magic of the children changed the myth of the gloomy monsoon to a pleasant and contented experience.
