Eyes on You!

A big hello from Mariam and Fatima!
Teachers all around the world would agree that bulletin boards are a reflection of a teacher’s work in class… of the effort she/he puts in experiences the learning taking place in students. They are also a means of acknowledging the work and achievements of children in school.
No doubt, bulletin boards reflect the teacher, teaching style, learners and the learning that takes place.
So, in this post we announce the inclusion of a new page on our blog, ‘Bulletin Board Ideas’ for teachers and parents to see. Of course, these are not the best bulletin boards and… there is great scope for creativity when it comes to showing off our kid’s works.
Have a nice time as we dig into our photographs folders to find some more boards to add on to these ones.
Take Care,
Mariam and Fatima


Ø  When you get the information that you will be going for an outing, inquire the place to be visited and take out appropriate clothes. Ask your parents if your choice is right.

Ø  Help your younger brothers and sisters to dress up.
