Our budding word-builders had great fun looking up new words, challenging their peers and playing around with words and letters. We had lots of positive feedback from students who attended our last batch.

3. Scrabble Camp

It’s easy to see why Scrabble is not only a fun game, but also a fantastic educational tool. Scrabble makes learning fun. Obviously, it builds strong vocabulary and spelling, but it also requires math (players need to see what plays are worth what) and strategy (players need to see what plays are worth the most and what plays might keep their opponents from scoring), even spatial relations and probability. Scrabble workshop for children from March 30 to April 3 at Children’s Library Vellayambalam. Time: 4 PM. Contact 0471-4015293 or 9847320281 to register.

Last class we had a ‘Just a minute’ session on random topics to train students to speak spontaneously.This will continue in the upcoming sessions. This is to improve their impromptu speaking skills.Then we had debate sessions on the topics assigned to the teams. SDGs were introduced to them as these could be used in speeches and debates. The trainer told them in which all ways the topics could be presented through the usage of certain concepts,current affairs and anecdotes. She also introduced the way they could use their existing knowledge and the information they get from different sources to prepare better speeches. Finally, the participants were given a topic for elocution for next class along with the format in which it needs to be presented.


Kite fun at the library

When we don the storyteller hat, we turn children into readers and transform the library into a community space. Oh how we enjoyed the delightful story ‘Farmer Falgu Goes Kite Flying’ by Chitra Soundar and Kanika Nair, from Karadi Tales. Stunning illustrations, interesting sounds and of course a catchy story. And how can the storytime end without the kite making activity? Our little champs made some charming kites and colored them too.

The idea was to create a fun place with activities that kept children coming back for more and so, spread the love for creativity. Children come for various reasons – the cheerful ambience, friendly teachers, fun activities on weekends, team work and excursions including Adventure, Science, Cooking, Nature, Theatre and more…

Green Butterfly’s programs help in development of creativity among children right from their tender age. Art and Craft programs, colouring/drawing/painting programs provide children the opportunity to be creative and to gain self confidence.

Enhanced learning for your child

Extra-curricular activities can be exciting, enaging and fun for children. The bonus is that they teach students a variety of skills, thus moulding them into well-rounded individuals. In today’s competitive world, achieving good academic results is not a sure shot to success. Today’s parents mostly recognise the value of these activities as part of their child’s overall development. The capital city of Kerala offers children a wide array of options including music, dancing, foreign languages, painting, martial arts and sports such as tennis, cricket and basketball.
