ABACUS

AGE : 5-12 years

Children who have mastered the skills of abacus mental arithmetic would have built a strong foundation in primary mathematics.

This foundation indirectly helps them to perform better in other science subjects too.

Our approach towards the transferring of mental arithmetic skills to children involves:

 
  making learning fun through 'hands-on' experience on the constructive and empowering abacus tool
   
 

providing a supportive, emotionally safe learning environment thereby alleviating the phobia of mathematics.

   
 

encouraging interactive and cooperative learning whilst allowing children to work at their pace.

   
  ensuring students understand what they will be doing and why
   
 

tapping into human potentialities to progressively realize the infinite intellectual capacity, thus enabling them to rationalize and adopt a meaningful perspective to any lesson

   
 

co-relating contents of study to their everyday life for effective learning and implementing authentic assessment

HANDWRITING ENHANCEMENT

Handwriting plays a crucial part in a child's development and personality. Handwriting is a means of expressing language, just like speech, and it also leaves a lasting trace.
