“If a child cant learn the way we teach, may be we should teach the way they learn” : Ignacio Estrada It is very important to be creative and know different methods of teaching when in a class, more so when teaching the little ones. Recently we had a wonderful person and volunteer, Mani Manjari, visit us and she delivered classes to our teachers on how to teach more creatively. Among other things, her primary focus was to deliver a workshop on “Learning through Creative play”; that refers to play as an essential resource for teaching the curriculum in the Early Year classes (Nursery and Prep). Three different modals of teaching through play were introduced: 1. Art and Design: where children are encourage to use marks, picture drawings, paintings, and constructions to create their personal responses to what they had viewed and experienced though the teaching. 2.

Time is all we have in Life. It is the essence of our Life. Without it we dont have anything. In a small seminar given to our girls on Tuesday, Mr Kamlesh told them about the importance of Time.

One may ask how, turns out that Kamlesh ji has been successfully practicing this money less system in his cafe in Gujrat, where people can get a coffee or snack in return of their service. This makes people realize the importance of their time and encourages them to do free service for others. The girls really liked the idea and plan to use it in their lives too.
It is such a pleasure for us to share with you the stories of our little heroes from around the world who would go out of their way to help another girl get an education. One such example is set by Brooke, an 11 year old from Canada, who auctioned hockey tickets that she donated, and managed to raise 1000 USD. She donate this money to Food for Life Vrindavan towards the education of a girl. The amount is enough to cover the education and supplies for a girl at SMS for almost two year. Dear Brooke, we want to tell you this, you are a hero and we are so proud to know you. You are such an inspiration to other girls and also our school girls here at Sandipani Muni School. Thank you very much, and we hope to meet you one day. Regards FFLV Team
