Storytime – Winnie the Witch

Last Saturday’s story session was all about magic and a lot of fun. Winnie, the Witch, had a series of trouble since her house and pet cat was both black. As a result, she decided to alter the cat’s colour to green, and then to a blend of other shades, which made her beloved cat seem bizarre and made him unhappy. Because Winnie adored her cat, she desired to restore the cat’s black colour and modify the colour of her home. The kids stated that Winnie could have done this sooner and avoided the problems since she is a brilliant witch after all. Maybe she enjoyed her black house so much, but she eventually realized that her love for her cat outweighed her love for the black house. We chose to play line game as our language game and made spider webs for crafts, and painted various spiders on them.

Story Time

Last Saturday’s story time was all about exploits with Pirate Captain and Pirate Dinosaurs. Flinn, a courageous and fearless little lad, and his companions decided to assist the Pirate Captain who had lost his favorite ship, The Acorn. However, they subsequently discovered that the ship had not only gone missing but had been seized by nasty pirate dinosaurs. The battle between Captain Flinn and the Pirate Tyrannosaurus Rex was fascinating and interesting for the kids. When Captain Flinn won the fight with the Pirate Dinosaur, their eyes shone with delight as they rushed out of their chairs and lifted their hands in the air, holding a sword in triumph. We played “guess the word in the air” and a line game for the language game. We created pirate caps for the crafts, and we all ended up becoming pirates.

Last Saturday, our story time session was about more than simply a story; it was also about raising awareness among the children about the difference between good and bad touch. The story centers on a young knight named Sir Alfred who is mistreated by an adult who has the highest possession in the kingdom and how he manages to bravely reveal his secret to his mother. Most of the time, it was tough to speak up about the awkward situation we were in with our parents. The narrative concludes with the message that parents should establish a secure atmosphere for their children in which they feel comfortable sharing anything with their parents. Then we discussed how important it is to say NO loudly and to be bold in such circumstances. After the reading, we played a new word game called back draw and winds up making swords for the craft session.

Christmas Storytime at Schoolkutti

This Christmas, we chose to read a story that would stay with us for a long time. It was a story of how helping hands appear as a present during trying times. When Redheaded Robbie was asked to present a Christmas story in front of the entire school, he became frightened as well. But when his pals chose to leave their seats and support their companion, Redheaded Robbie’s Christmas tale became a crowd favorite. His narrative was more than simply a story; it was a reminder of what Christmas means outside of the celebration. Following the narrative, the children discussed the scenario in which their friends chose to help them. They also said that the youngsters’ acts of kindness made the occasion unforgettable. As it is Christmas week, we chose to go with a pull-up Christmas card, remembering that Christmas cards have been a thing of the past since social media took over.


Can scarecrows converse about their ripped and ragged clothing? Will they ever complain about not getting pretty clothes? Gauri, a little girl, wishes to create the most beautiful scarecrow using her new red frock and red ribbons. She returned to her hut after leaving her mother’s scarecrows in the field. But her ambition to make a beautiful scarecrow remained, and she dreamed about scarecrows whining about their torn old clothing and trying on her red dress and red ribbon, spinning, twisting, and laughing. This time, the birds arrived and ate all the grains, but since the scarecrows were all dressed up nicely, the birds were not afraid. Gauri awoke screaming, realizing it had all been a nightmare. At the end of the narrative, she noticed the scarecrows winking at her. Was it all a dream, or were the scarecrows talking? The kid’s theory of explanation was that the brain would characterize our dreams for a period of time, making them look real. We began speaking about the bad nightmares and imaginations that kids had. Some of their imaginative ideas ranged from taking control of the universe to traveling to a fairyland. Following the reading session, we played musical chairs at the request of the kids and created scarecrows for the craft session. Some sought to construct scary scarecrows, while others tried to make lovely ones.


Why do we confine our pet birds to cages? We cannot afford to lose them. Do we? Giving them all the food they want but denying them the freedom to fly and live the life they want is a rejection of their necessities. The merchant in this story likewise keeps her birds in chains or cages. Her favorite bird was a brilliant parrot she had purchased from India and had learned to communicate with. When she intended to travel to India to sell things, she asked her servants and her beloved parrot what she should bring them after her voyage. The servants are all asked for different things, and the parrot is asked to say hello to his parrot friends in India and tell them how much he misses them, as well as to ask Mah Jahan if the parrot friends have any advice for him. However, as she went to the jungle to greet the parrot pals, one of the parrots fell from the tree. The merchant decided not to inform her parrot at home because it would make him further depressed. However, when she returned home, the parrot enquired about this, and she was forced to inform him about the loss of one of his parrot buddies. After hearing this, the parrot became still and fell to the floor. Mah Jahan believed that the news made him unhappy and caused him to die. When Mah Jahan held him in her arms, the parrot flapped his wings and soared up into the sky, where he rested on a tree, thanking the merchant for delivering freedom from India. Finally, she discovered that the parrot in the jungle was not dead, but rather offered freedom counsel and she realized that she was glad for the parrot’s independence. At the end of the story, the kids also chose to stop keeping their birds in cages and instead let them fly free. We all created bright green parrots for the story-themed craft session and decided to set them free.
