Strategies of Teaching
In fact, this is one of our primary focuses. We have certified English Faculty and we create Bridge Course, Reading Programs, Phonetics, and English Improvement Program for students. Speaking English is compulsory. Teaching will be in English and learners will pick up the nuances of the language. Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) is a unique program that is being introduced to motivate the children to read for rest of his / her life. In addition to Main Library, a Digital library is being planned with lot of Articles/Books that mainly focus on English grammar and Fluency. Computer Lab and Internet will be used as a tool to enrich the child’s fluency in English. Some of the additional strategies being introduced are:
• Developing writing skills

• Spelling Bee programs
• Develop General knowledge as part of Reading
• Watching English documentaries & Children Movies

AAA maintains class and activity records of each student to measure the progress. The worksheets, grading for all class activities, report cards, emails inform parents of their child’s progress. Grade wise meetings are called and parents are informed. Student Portfolio is maintained. A student profile is created at the time of admission and each month it is updated with subjective records.
Role and distribution of sports and Extra curricular activities
Equal emphasis on academics, sports and co-curricular activities will be the motto of AAA. Younger students will have more of games like Kho-kho, dodge ball and various other games depending on the interest. We will build the confident that the child can learn the skills because he or she is willing and not necessary that the child has to be smart.
The school has been divided into following four houses.
Inter house activities Every Saturday -I,III,V .
Education is incomplete without sports as the qualities of self-confidence, discipline, accountability and teamwork are inculcated on the ground, not within the four walls of the classroom.
Also a sound mind in a sound body’ is what AAA International School, strongly believes in. The school provides a complete platform of fitness and well-being by offering a wide range of sports and games for children of all age groups. The school believes that participating together in a sport or game is a chance for a child to learn from and teach one another in a positive atmosphere of support and camaraderie. Fitness activities had done together have a double benefit. Each child gets to improve personally while having fun with those he/she loves.
Trained coaches encourage the children to try a wide selection of sports and games like gymnastics, skating, table tennis, judo, football, badminton and cricket. Children are encouraged to try a wide selection of sports and activities rather than concentrating on just one or two. This promotes the development of strength, flexibility and eye-hand and eye-foot co-ordination as well as muscular endurance.
The sports and games complex ensures good health. Emphasis on regular exercise for physical fitness is the key aspect of the programme. Well qualified physical training instructors supervise all games. Fostering team spirit with the maxim. “Give your best and leave the rest” is our aim. P. T. and yoga under qualified instructors is compulsory.
