LIFE SKILL WRITE UP
“THE MORE WE GIVE IMPORTANCE TO SKILL DEVELOPMENT, THE MORE COMPETENT WILL BE OUR CHILDREN”
Life skills are the abilities for adaptive and positive behavior that enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life. Children learn essential life skills from their environment and it goes hand in hand with growing up. Parents, family, and teachers play a crucial role in moulding their behaviour and thus play an important role in inculcating life skills in children . Life skills are important skills that kids need to learn in order to find it easier to deal with adulthood.
K.R. Mangalam World School , Paschim Vihar believes in integrated and activity based learning. Keeping this in mind, various life skills activities were conducted virtually from time to time for our little ones in integration with the school curriculum. Various simple life skill activities like pouring water in glasses without spilling, arranging the utensils in rack, managing their wardrobes, folding and unfolding clothes, transferring clay balls and water in ice tray etc were taught in virtual classes to the children. The teachers encouraged the students to perform independently, think creatively and in an innovative way.
The virtual activities imbibed life skills like confidence, empathy, self awareness, problem solving, decision making and effective communication in children . Overall, it was a great learning experience which was thoroughly enjoyed by all .
