Navratan for a Swacch India



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.

A very good effort being made by our PM.As a educationist, it is high time we take the initiative to engrave the concept of cleanliness in children's tender minds.
I would like to suggest an activity- let's guide children to make a trash bag each month from old news paper and teach them to use it in their parents cars or bikes, so that at least one initiative of keeping the roads litter free will be done.

India and Indians have always dreamt for a swacch country and swacch people in terms of their thinking and acts. The connection between swacch India and navratna for swacch India theme in which the jumbo kids children were exposed to will go a long way in ensuring future leaders with sound values and a swacch country.

Swaach India can be gifted to by stating that our children to be words smart,number smart,pictures smart, body smart, music smart , self smart, nature smart , soul smart which stands 9 intelligence in this article.

Manju Joshi said...

The strongest skills of many children lie in these six areas, include visual/spatial, bodily/kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, naturalist and intrapersonal intelligence, which are frequently undervalued in some traditional schools and often focus on a narrow range of intelligence that involves primarily verbal/linguistic and logical/mathematical skills. A general saying –“A smartly dressed person with clean habits creates an impression on others. It usually reflects a clean character also”. From self to society we need to aim for clean environment.

PJK Vadgaon said...

Gandhiji had a dream. He said ‘safai’ is God’s work; we should aim for a Swach Bharat.
