Worksheets

About 750 paper worksheets each are done in LKG & UKG

All English and math skills are taught through worksheets

Most worksheets are unique and are never repeated

These are done in LKG by children at school in groups of 3 or 4, under the teacher’s attentive eye. In UKG they become independent

Completed sheets are sent home every afternoon, and are filed by parents

Worksheets help children at Vidhya Peetham learn more than their peers with much less effort in a happy, burden-free environment

Vidhya Peetham could be the only school to have such diverse worksheets

Reinforce Learning

- This is a sample math worksheet 📝

- Topics taught by the teacher on the blackboard 👩‍🏫 are practiced and mastered by children through engaging worksheets like these. 📚

Worksheets = Concept Learning

- Almost all worksheets are unique ✨ and seldom repeated.

- This helps understanding concepts deeply 💡rather than rote memorization. 🤔

Parents, not teachers!

- At Vidhya Peetham, just like a doctor 👨‍⚕️ doesn't expect patients to diagnose themselves or a lawyer 👨‍⚖️ their clients to know the penal code ⚖️, we don't expect parents to teach phonics or math to their children.

- Therefore, all worksheets are completed at school.

- 🏫🤝 Vidhya Peetham values parent dedication over education. 🌟👪
