Grade 6 teachers.

First Day of Class!

September 16, 2012

Welcome back to Balavihar! We had a great summer and are into school already. Today we were first sorted into grades in the auditorium and then we came to the classroom A113. We got 'sorted' into groups one and two. Group one's teachers are Vyjayanti Aunty and Jayashree Aunty and Group two's teachers are Ram Uncle and Asha Aunty. We got sorted by writing our names on a piece of paper and one character of the Mahabharata (our syllabus for this year) and got picked into groups based on alphabetical order of characters chosen (first 8 characters by girls & first four by boys were one section and rest were in the other section). As of today, there are 4 boys and 8 girls in each class. We discussed the supplies that were needed.

Because we're on the topic, 6th grade kids will need:

  • the Balavihar binder which is provided
  • the orange My Prayers book
  • pencils, pens, and crayons
  • a likita japa book
  • the spiral book called "Mahabharata For Children: Junior Class Handbook Part (1 & 2)." There are two books in this series and kids will need to get both of them (they are yellow and green).
  • Also there is C. Rajagopalachari's Mahabharata book.It is not required but it is a great book and it is highly recommended
Also, everyone said their names, what town we live in, and then we discussed what we did over the summer, such as three people went to India, some people stayed home, and so on. We also learned that the topic for this year's class is the Mahabharata. By that time it was 11:30 and we had to go. I had an interesting class and I'm sure everyone else did too!

Yours Truly,
