 Helping a child with language
The students in grades 2 to 5 are unable to read in their own language fluently, without mistakes and comprehending. They are poor in handling simple arithmetic too. Surya and Pavithra are two such students at the Panchayat Union Primary school, Soorakkadu, Sirkali Taluk, Nagapattinam district struggling in their classes. Vidyarambam introduced Surya and Pavithra to simple word building exercise through games. They improved to form sentences, read and write their own language.In numbers, the skill of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division all through enjoyable games were reinforced. Group learning methodology helped the slow learners to pick up from their peers at their own pace and achieve the result Now they are able to read and write in their own language fluently and without mistakes and comprehending. They picked up English language too. In numbers, they became expert in four basic skills of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and joyfully stepped forward to take up the challenge of fractions.
