|Tips#1: Read Together Every Day|
|Read to your child every day. Make this a warm and loving time when the two of you can cuddle close together. Bedtime is an especially great time for reading together.|
|Tips#2: Give Everything A Name|
|You can build comprehension skills early, even with the littlest child. Play games that involve naming or pointing to objects. Say things like, "Where's your nose?" and then, "Where's Mommy's nose?" Or touch your child's nose and say, "What's this?"|
In today's competitive world, learning is not confined to the walls of the classroom. We can achieve 360 degree development of students by engaging them in a number of co-curricular activities including horse-riding.Learning the nuances of the ride can take students a long way in shaping their personalities.A scientific study in the US has revealed that an involvement with horses boosts the life skills of young people. Horses, the study found, acted as both teachers and friends for young people.
3 prime reasons why horse-riding is beneficial to students: Physical: Horse-riding strengthens muscles, accelerates reflex actions, increases joint mobility, improves bloodcirculation and much more.Moreover, it requires students to make multiple movements simultaneously to control the animal better. Thus students develop theircoordination skills to move their body with the horse for a smooth ride.
Mental: Horse-riding develops a sense of responsibility towards the horses; while enhancing patience and self-discipline. Students develop quick thinking to handle a powerful animal with a mind and agenda of its own.
|Tips#3: Say How Much You Enjoy Reading Together|
|Tell your child how much you enjoy reading with him or her. Look forward to this time you spend together. Talk about "story time" as the favorite part of your day.|
|Tips#4: Be Interactive|
|Engage your child so he or she will actively listen to a story. Discuss what's happening, point out things on the page, and answer your child's questions. Ask questions of your own and listen to your child's responses.|
Social: While learning the fine skills of riding a horse, the students learn the responsibility of caring for the animals and develop a sensitive attitude to perceive their behaviour. Being able to handle a horse independently has a profound effect on students' confidence and infuses a sense of independence in them. “The students learn to balance on a horse and imbibe the skill to control its movements. This unique learning helps students address various situations of life with confidence.” –
Mr.Sompal Singh, Horse-riding Coach, Taurian World School. Horse-riding at Taurian World School
The Schooltrains students in basics of horse-riding right from U-KG, while actual Equestrian Team training commences only after Grade 3. With classes held every day, the students learn various techniques of mounting-dismounting, holding the reins, balancing on the horse etc. on a rigorously trained stud of horses. The trainers are select ex-servicemen from the army who skilfully guide the students to qualify for Junior National Level.
We believe that active participation in sports contributes towards holistic development of students. TO KNOW MORE DOWNLOAD THE PDF ( here)
