from Baale Mane had the children singing, dancing and playing games.
Volunteers from Akshara Foundation engaged the children with Lego
building blocks. Spaceships, rockets, apartments, and even a ‘diamond
shop’ got built in record time.
The creations led themselves well to
a storytelling session with a volunteer from Pratham Books. Quick
sketches on a board led the children to make up some more exciting
stories. We had three storytelling sessions for children of three
different age groups.
We started with Haathi ka Bukhaar (Elephant’s Fever) in one
group. With the older group we could use the same story to talk about
hygiene, temperature and mercury. We also played with our story
cards. Some of the children who had been in the bridge school for
over a year could read the Hindi cards. In the older group, the story
cards got converted to ‘money’! Different story cards represented
different denominations. The class became a ‘bank’ and we could share
a few basics about money. This reporter was a little distracted by a
little fellow who ignored her totally and instead applied himself fully to the task of tying a
balloon to a pole. But a storybook finally got him too. Aha!
Representatives from Centre for Education Innovations were
present to work on connecting CSR groups to Sunday camps.
