New Schedule for EArtH Kids

To efficiently utilize the time between final exams and end of academic year, we developed a schedule for kids to strengthen their basics in academics until summer break.

-Kids are divided into groups based on their learning skills and class level.
-They will work on 1 exercise (assessment) every day covering the following subjects. This develops their reading and writing skills too.
–Telugu
–English
–Math
-EArtH team reviews assessment results twice a week with parents. Kids who do well get appreciation along with their parents. For kids not doing well in these assessments, their parents will need to talk to school teachers to analyze reasons.

With this program, we also get to speak to parents more which helps in mobilizing/inspiring them about importance of education.

State Level Arts Competition – Appreciation

As you may know, earth kids won prize in Kriya event in Kakinada. MLA Sri DASARI MANOHAR REDDY garu appreciated our state level first prize winning children. He felt very happy and encouraged.

Teaching Learning Material

Pedrathpally EArtH staff prepared this TLM (Teaching Learning Material) to make learning of basic English easy and interesting.

Midday Meals – Mutharam

Mutharam Sarpanch visited the government school during midday meals. She found scope for improvement in the quality of food and warned the contractor.

Ideally, every Sarpanch should do this. We were able to bring this awareness in few schools, trying to imbibe #DevelopingOurOwnVillage thinking.

Since EArtH adopted its villages, the discipline of kids during lunch also improved significantly – they stand in line for food, sit in order, also to wash their plates, etc.
