On May 18, 2023, The Khaitan School organized an exciting learning activity called “Juggling with Numbers” for the students of Grade 3. This engaging game utilized number cards and two dice with numbers ranging from 0 to 50, making mathematics come alive in a fun and interactive way.
The activity began with a preliminary round conducted in all the sections of Class III. Every student eagerly participated in this round, forming teams of four from different houses to play “Juggling with Numbers.” The game was facilitated by the respective Mathematics teachers in their classrooms. The students displayed immense enthusiasm, showcasing their solid understanding of numbers and arithmetic. At the end of the preliminary round, the four top scorers from each house were selected from each section of Class III.
The final round took place on May 18, 2023, within their respective classrooms in the presence of a Mathematics Teacher. Four students from each house, who had been previously selected, formed teams for the final round. The rest of the class became the audience, cheering on their classmates. In recognition of their outstanding performance, the winning team in each section received star badges. The audience members who actively participated also received star badges as a token of appreciation.
