Masti ki Paathshaala

15 Jan

Mantam had their quarterly assessments in December. Their class teacher promptly sent a note about the schedule and syllabus.

1st day – English – Writing Capital letters A to Z, reading three letter words, guessing 3 letter words by seeing the picture and filling the missing letter

2nd day – Maths – Writing Numbers 1-40. What comes before? What comes after? What comes between?

3rd day – General Knowledge – Rhymes, Parts of the body, sense organs and their functions, identifying flowers, good habits

Preparations for first two tests went smoothly.

For the GK assessment – we started off with identifying flowers:

We had a board book of flowers and I pointed at different flowers and see how both identify

  • Peony – Tammu says Piano
  • Poppy – Tammu says Lollypop
  • Tulip – Tammu says Clip while Mannu – Lipstick
  • Lotus – Tammu says Scooter
  • Iris – Tammu says Eyelid
  • Buttercup – Butter scotch
  • Zinnia – Zebra

It was a laughter riot at home. I was amused and also stunned at the way they instantaneously related a word from their vocabulary which was close to the flower’s name.

Next we moved on to body parts:

I showed the forehead. And guess what Tammu says?

Headache!!!! Β  (@Garima: Now you know why I called her Loony Tammy)

Next we move on to Sense organs:

Along with all the parts, they name ‘tongue’ and say that tongue helps us in tasting.

I also added on to it and said that tongue also helps us in speaking.

Next thing I ask is to name a few good habits:

Tammu’s spontaneous answer: ‘Speaking with our tongue is good habit. Speaking with lips is bad habit’

      At that time, they used to pronounce scooter as kootal. Perhaps that’s why lotus must have been = kootal
