The Fairby Avantika Chaurasia
In the lets Start Art sessions this month, we asked students to read a chapter named "The Fair" from their English book and relate it to the Fair they visited.
Such topics help children express the ideas that they can not put into words. Through our let's start art program we aim to encourage such expression.
Here are a few stories that will surely bring back your childhood memories of visiting a fair.

What makes you happy?by Karishma Srivastava
What makes you happy?
We asked the students this simple question based on an English rhyme from their syllabus book "A Happy Child" and got amusing answers in the form of drawings. Children told us that they are happiest about the tiny little things in their lives despite all the adversities that they face.
Let's Play and Learn the Story of Garbageby Karishma Srivastava
Most of the things that we vividly remember from our school education either had a picture related to the text in the book, or the words painted a pretty picture in our minds. There are countless studies that have confirmed the power of visual imagery in learning. For instance, one study asked students to remember many groups of three words each, such as dog, bike, and street. Students who tried to remember the words by repeating them over and over again did poorly on recall. In comparison, students who made the effort to make visual associations with the three words, such as imagining a dog riding a bike down the street, had significantly better recall.
FRIENDS, SPACE AND ALIENSby Karishma Srivastava
Do you remember stocking up friendship bands before going to school? All of us used to wait for friendship day each year and gifted friendship bands to our friends. In the month of August, we conducted the first set of Let's Start Art workshops on the same theme. We asked the students to draw their friends and narrate their friendship stories.
In the second set of art sessions, we asked the students to ponder over the question- 'How exploring space improves life on earth?'.
