He gave us independence. What did we give him? Our respected Prime Minister wants to gift the Mahatma a clean India and we at Podar Jumbo Kids support this idea and are participating with 18000 children 36,000 parents and grandparents in this mission starting from 2nd October 2014.
BAPUKENAVRATAN FOR A SWACCH INDIA is our event to flag off this mission. 9 ways in which children can be taught and inspired to be clean, think clean and make cleanliness a part of their every day life.
The early years are the foundational years for the development of intelligence in children and children best learn when exposed to holistic development. So we chose the nine intelligences to teach kids about being clean and the importance of cleanliness. So join us on the 2nd of October to see how are kids and parents learn about cleanliness in 9 different ways. 9 inspirations for a SWACCH INDIA, lets start early, lets start young.
1. Verbal/Linguistic (“Word smart”) learners have the ability to use words effectively. Children learn to use words and pictures to describe cleanliness activities and words and sentences that signify cleanliness and ways to clean, both personal and surroundings.
Clean,dirty, Scrub, brush, mop, dust, smell, wipe etc. as per their age they will recognize pictures, learn words or learn to make sentences with the words.
2. Logical/mathematical (“Number/reasoning smart”) learners have the ability to use numbers effectively. Children will identify the different steps and stages of cleanliness both personal and surroundings. So they will play card games in which they will identify the steps to follow.
3. Visual/Spatial (“Picture smart”) learners create pictures in their mind to retain information. Children will draw about their vision for cleanliness. What does cleanliness mean to them. Art helps children express and we can learn a lot about their thinking and ideas through drawings.
4. Bodily/Kinesthetic (“Body smart”) learners exhibit skillful use of their hands and/or exceptional control over their body movements that may be used to express ideas. Children will participate with their parents and use the broom and mop to clean their surroundings like classroom, outdoor are. Children will understand how full body movements are involved in different aspects of cleanliness.
5. Musical/Rhythmic (“Music smart”) learners have the ability to appreciate and produce music. They think in terms of rhythms and patterns. Children will sing rhymes and songs about cleanliness especially our new version of Twinkle Twinkle little star, lets clean up where we are.
6. Interpersonal (“People smart”) learners relate well to others. They are empathic, organized, and skilled at eliciting individual and group cooperation. Children will play games in which to identify what areas of cleanliness require a group effort and what areas can be done individually
7. Intrapersonal (“Self smart”) learners have a desire to reflect and evaluate their inner self. Children will be taught about brushing, bathing and using the dustbin as part of individual responsibility activities for cleanliness
8. Naturalist (“Nature smart”) learners exhibit a strong early interest in artifacts, animals, planets, and minerals. Children will go out in nature, on the road, in the garden and clean the area of rubbish and also suggest to people to use dustbins.
9. Spiritual ( “Soul smart”) – they will watch a muppet show about ‘Dumpy the Dustbin” will teach them about values of cleanliness and how a dustbin wants them to learn about cleanliness.
