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 Schoolkutti.com Children’s Library Vellayambalam. Time: 4 PM. Contact 0471-4015293 or 9847320281 to register.

Monkeying around – Storytime at Schoolkutti

“Kids learnt about body parts, adjectives and some interesting jungle vocabulary during our WordPlay story time last weekend.

worldplay2
It was based on the charming and humorous book ‘Monkey Puzzle’ by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, an all-time favourite with children.The butterfly is keen to help the poor little monkey who has lost his mom and they meet lots of other animals along the way before they finally succeed.
wordplay1

The monkey making craft was a huge hit with children. We had a fun counting lesson through the rhyme ‘Five little monkeys jumping on the bed””, as the five bouncy little monkeys bump their heads and get hauled off to the doctor one by one. During our free reading time, kids enjoyed reading some fantastic books – chosen by them of course. As we had an energetic group of kids, there as a lot of monkey business as well 🙂

WordPlay Updates – So Cosy

We had some captivating stories and wonderful games during our WordPlay session today. Children had a cosy time with our facilitator Saranya narrating the story from the book ‘So Cosy’. Such a darling book, our kids loved it! We also picked a craft activity that fits with the book. Doing art and crafts in storytime gives kids an opportunity to practice early literacy skills and also interact with other children. We also read a Malayalam story from the Russian book by Sutyev.word92

Magic of Stories – March 2 WordPlay Updates

Yesterday’s WordPlay was very special as we also included stories and discussion based on books in Malayalam.

urakkam
We chose the Malayalam version of the book ‘I’m so sleepy’ about Bahadur, the little elephant, who has forgotten how to sleep.Worried, and very, very sleepy he goes to his animal friends for help. But they all sleep in their own different ways — elephants don’t sleep like that! We shared this adorable children’s book with the little ones and then thoroughly enjoyed re-creating Bahadur through a fun craft activity. Had fun playing the game ‘oru meen poyi , randu meen poyi….. 10 meenine pidiche ‘ – it’s a great way to get young kids to focus on counting in malayalam.word31

word34

In English, the ‘The Mixed-Up Chameleon’ by Eric Carle was an instant hit with the children. This book attempts to educate children on the differences between various animals by presenting a morally enlightening story that features a chameleon. We also enjoyed singing some fantastic songs in both languages. Finally, each of them was sitting with a book of his/her choice going through the pictures or reading. We are definitely making progress in developing early literacy skills, imagination and a love for books in these children.
