WordPlay – The Giving Tree and Other Stories

In yesterday’s WordPlay session, children enjoyed listening to the unconditional love between the boy and the tree. We discussed some big questions: What is love? What makes a good friend? Is it possible to do something for others without expecting anything in return? Can we all grow up to be generous like the giving tree?

SPEECHCRAFT

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.

KIDDO (Season.3)

Schoolkutti team had a great time sharing stories and songs with children at the KIDDO (Season.3) program organized by Natana for the kids of Technopark employees(Phase.1, 2 &3). For one hour, the other-wise naughty little ones, and their parents, sat spell-bound listening to some fantastic stories narrating by Saranya.
