And a new chapter begins....
Was amazed by the eager Little Einsteins ( all around 6 yrs) and their experiments, bubbling volcanoes, magic writing ( Anush's), floating objects and so on....
Lovely to see all the colourful work on display done lovingly by the kids. Anushka's included a word wheel, a magic number square grid, a clay mountain range, her imaginary animal drawing and other stuff she had done over the year.
Anush (and I ) were mighty pleased that her work book was retained by the Montessori work room teacher as an illustrative sample.
I was slightly put off that even this school displays projects done very obviously by the parents! And the child had not even an inkling when other kids questioned her about this and that! Parental guidance is fine and needed, but to do it themselves is almost insulting to the child, in my opinion.
Aditi's last day at playschool ended on a high with a party and so on. She received an excellent rating and Anush was a very proud sister who could not resist asking Aditi: " Aditi, very good! You are excellent in school. Then why dont you behave that way at home?"
The Ugadi weekend involved a Chintamani trip ( roads are being laid and really bad ) and a send off for a dear ST member who is moving cities. Also Anush attended PowWow's Chota Bheem do.
