Your Child’s Mind is Being Triggered by the Walls
Kindergarten and primary classrooms are often made to look vibrant, colourful, and are full of fun elements! Why do you think this is? Education expert, Rod Pitcher says that learning environments which are stimulating act as a huge trigger in making learners think and find answers.
Sometimes, the learning ambiance elements may not be age-appropriate, relevant to the learning and its purpose towards building stimulation might get defeated along the way. So, it becomes important to be careful of the kind of material that is put up on the walls of a classroom. In Chrysalis ThinkRooms, we have what we call the ‘Think Line’. It is an exploratory question/statement that the teacher puts up in class related to the concept being taught and carries space for students to share their responses freely, as and when they choose to through the duration of the concept. In the image here, Class 5 students engage in answering a Science ThinkLine during their break time (!).
