Old MacDonald had a Farm, Ee i ee i oh!!

“Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” -Plato   Hello all! Let me start by wishing all the readers a very Happy and Prosperous New Year! After a much needed vacation break, am happy to be back and share the next topic of my Multiple Intelligence article series. Having dealt with the relatively “academic” topics in my earlier blogs, I decided to go with a light, yet very essential medium of learning in children, music, and what better way to kick off the New Year than in a melodious musical way!   Musical Intelligence-A few years ago, people found it difficult to associate music with academics, learning or education. It was usually seen as a recreational activity, some pass time or for a very few as an actual career option. However, over the last few years this notion has seen a major setback, thanks to...

Hop a little, jump a little, run a little!!

Hello again! The festivals and vacation are over and am back to the grind, if am allowed to say so! After enjoying a week long break from school and work, am trying to get back to the daily school routine and the tasks at hand. As the new term dawns, there is a lot of running around, planning and event organization, which is testing my physical ability. The second academic term usually is full of activities other than academics, and the one right at the top of my mind is our very own Sports Day. It’s only now that I have realized that being a “Fit” kindergarten teacher is as important as inculcating the idea of being fit and active in young children. And who better to teach me this all important lesson than my very own bodily-kinesthetic kindergarteners! The use of their body in terms of music, movement, sports and games and other activities transcends way beyond just being physically fit. These busy bees are always on their feet, doing things by themselves and lea...

The world is my kaleidoscope

The world is my kaleidoscope

The first blog I wrote on Multiple Intelligence gave me immense satisfaction. Having touched upon such a well thought through theory, which is so applicable in our practical teaching life, it felt like pulling out a piece of ribbon from the hat of a magician. The learning from this theory is so vast, it is almost impossible to sum it up in one single article. This is when an idea struck, to do justice to each aspect of MI (Multiple Intelligence). As a result, I will be coming up with a series of articles, explaining all the 8 intelligences. To start off, I would like to shed more light on Visual-Spatial Intelligence, one of the first means of learning in children. In my subsequent writings, I would be dealing with all the other 7 intelligences.  World sees doodles and scribbles, I see a masterpiece!! Have you ever seen children doodling on a scrap of paper or the flo...

I learn the way I like!

I learn the way I like!

I am a kindergarten teacher and I think it is safe to say that it is one of the most rewarding and fun-filled professions ever. It is also equally true that is it is one of the most challenging as well. Each day is a new teaching experience, more importantly, a learning experience. More so for me than my students. The young minds constantly surprise, inspire, challenge and teach me with their diversities. Each child largely follows the same milestones, yet is so different!! While one has a keen ear to music, the other is always making an art masterpiece. One cannot resist shaking a leg whenever music is played, and the other prefers a quiet corner to do and learn things. Why are children so different? What sets them apart from their peers? How is it that eventually, all the children learn all the basic skills, albeit via different routes and means? These interesting questions were answered by one of the most popularly accepted theories in the field of education,...
