Ekadaksha Learning Center for Children with special needs

What we do - Ekadaksha Learning Center Chennai - By Stephen Eastop

Welcome to the Online Navratri celebrations 2020 at Ekadaksha,ChennaiAnother celebration at Ekadaksha and once again, virtual but amazing. The highlight of this celebration was the involvement and participation of all the parents and siblings of our children. Without their enthusiasm and cooperation, this celebration would not have been as awesome as it was. Every class was given a project - Either art and craft work, dance or speeches. The teachers provided all the details and demo videos, while parents executed them along with their children. Photos and recordings were made and these were shared on the day of the celebration.

The children of Express 2a class made lovely artwork of Dandia sticks and also decorated the sticks. The children of Express 2b class made beautiful art of pictures related to Navratri like lamps and the face of Goddess durga. These lovely art brought out the creativity of both parent and child. An experience to work together and produce wonderful works of art. 

The children of Experience 1 class make Golu dolls outs of sponge and materials at home. Each doll looked so pretty. It was an activity of bonding between the child and parent. The children of Experience 5 made colourful garlands out of beads, vegetables and straws. They have been learning jewellery making and this was an opportunity to make a product which one can use. 

Udith, one of our remedial children made a very pretty scenery by using the vegetables as stamps. This would look really pretty on a Golu display.

The children of Express 6 class performed the Dandia dance. They performed alongside their mothers or siblings. Every one of them did their steps independently which gave us immense happiness because at Ekadaksha we strive for independence and individuality. Click here to view the amazing dancers. 

The children of Pull out programme told small speeches about Navratri explaining to us how it is celebrated. The speeches were memorised, practiced and performed independently and smartly. Swashika, one of our remedial children did a live speech about what she does during Navaratri. She had discussed with the teacher, made sentences and read it out with confidence and clarity. Click here to hear the speeches.

Finally, Navratri is not complete without a group dance, Right!!! O halo re!!!All the parents, children and teachers learnt some Garba moves and we ended the session clapping away to music. Click here for the super fun and energetic Garba dance...
