Play Currency

We have been using play currency to help kids understand the application of counting by 5/ 10/ 20/ 50/ 100/ 500/ 1000

Yes counting to the value of 20000 rs is being done in class

Back at home you are requested to practise saying go as far as your can ( SMILE AND ENCOURAGING YOUR CHILD)

10 – 20 – 30 – ………….110 – 120 – 130 – 140 – 150 – ……..270 – 280 – 290 – 300 – 310….
55- 60 – 65 – 70 – 75 – 80…..
500 – 1000- 1500- 2000 – 2500
1000 – 2000 – 3000- 4000……

and so on.

if kids can practise forward at home.. then i will get extra time to work on backward, the kids truly struggle here!

i don’t recommend worksheet/ writing….mental development and verbal accuracy is the focus

Most importantly
don’t say one -fifty five
emphasise on saying one hundred and fifty five and four thousand five hundred.

Play with kids monopoly, let them use their counting skills in the game

Homeschooling TO MIT

MIT has a long history of admitting homeschooled students, and these students are successful and vibrant members of our community.

Over the past decade, we have seen a surge in homeschooled applicants. Homeschooled applicants still make up less than 1% of our applicant pool (and less than 1% of our student body), but these numbers are growing.
