My School Planner
The aim of the club activity – My School Planner organised on 30.01.20 was to make the students more organised and understand the importance of a schedule or planner. Through the activity they got an opportunity to plan and make their own weekly Class Time-table which reflected all the main subjects along with the other co-curricular activities like Art, Dance, Music etc.
A market scene was created in which different objects with a price tag were displayed. The children chose and picked up a few objects and generated a cash memo for the purchased items.
Prior to the activity a sample of cash memo was shown to students on the smart board. They were explained about the different columns and their relevance in detail. They were guided to make four columns- particulars (list of items), quantity, rate and amount. They used their knowledge of the concept of multiplication and addition to calculate the total amount to be paid. All the children displayed their Cash Receipt or Cash Memo with pride.
