Word Play – Session 1


Learning to read isn’t all about phonics and literacy but also about exploring, delighting and laughing. As always, we at schoolkutti strive to make children fall in love with reading. Last saturday, we captivated our little Word Play participants with another magical story – A Tiger in the House,’ which was written by Indian author Ruskin Bond. The story centers around a tiger cub Timothy who was raised as a pet, but later taken to the zoo after he started acting more like a tiger. All the children agreed that it would be awesome to have a real tiger cub as a pet.


Role plays are the most preferred part of all our Word Play sessions. Kids really enjoyed pretending and acting out as the characters in the Little Red Riding Hood. At the end, we also had some fun vocabulary challenges and animal quizzes for each age group that motivated them to ponder over words and facts.
