The Second Innings

The kids were there on time eager to learn more.

This week we focused more on adorable mammals. Some real and some fictional.

We started off with the pre-read. I asked the kids to re-tell whatever they had learnt in the previous sessions.

We moved on to read about interesting kangaroo facts. One kid asked a question, “Why don’t joey’s fall out of the Mama’s pouch?”, Cute!

I told them about the world’s most beloved bear, Winnie the Pooh, and about its creator A.A. Milne. And how Milne used fictional names to tell real stories. I asked the kids to write a fictional story and bring it next week, the story had to be inspired by their favorite toys.

The worksheet this week was fun – the kids composed riddles, themselves! Some really humorous ones!

We also read about the friendly mammals that swim like a fish.

Finally, we ran a short reading session on the stories of Nobel peace prize winners Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi.  I hope their stories inspires the kids and tells them that courage does make an ordinary person extraordinary!
