When the kids had to make material list of what they would need for their missions...one of them said they need Turtle for the birthday party!!...Aunty asked...Turtle??? Yes aunty real turtle...Aunty asked how will she get it...Just go to shop and buy and get tomorrow when you come here...How simple!!!:)
On a Friday, when it was the final day of missions and also parents visiting...We had already set up stalls displaying the various missions we worked on....Aunty was having a casual talk to all the kids about what would they like to do when parents walk in...There were lots of ideas pouring in about games we could play with parents, parents telling us stories, showing things we made, etc. One of the kid who was part of Build your own country mission said...Let's sell the country aunty to parents!!!....Further explained...let's sell everything from animal, roads, trees and country to parents who come to see aunty!!!
This was during the first day of writing the material list to start off the missions. Kids grouped themselves and one of the teams that were organizing an event had chosen to do Birthday Party!! When aunty came to see there was one kid who was had tied a dupatta around the waist and said was driver...When aunty asked how is it connected to the mission...she was told driver needs to go to bring cake for the birthday party...(oh wow!!!I never thought of this)....Next round when aunty came the driver was preparing to sleep on the mat (this was the vehicle)!!!...She was told driver's sleep when there is no work!!! That's why sleeping aunty....:))) and the best part was the kid had actually fallen asleep in few minutes...:))
When the kids are in sand area they generally start off by taking in the sand toys for themselves...One day when they were doing this Aunty just casually asked...oh!! so you are setting up shops?? Immediately there was a sweet shop with Kaaju Katli (kid was actually calling...aaooo kaju katli le lo...), cake shops with different varieties of cakes ( you need to order cake and they will call you once ready), utensils shops etc. One kid was not ready to part with the things anyone buys from their shop. So aunty asked if it was an exhibition...This triggered the flow and there was so much explanation about different utensils available, different things you can make, dangerous, usage, weight, handling etc. And if aunty wants to buy the same she can go to the shop next which has all the things you see in the exhibition for SALE!!! :)
During Uddan...one child who was part of a mission, was doing things relating to birthday party...Aunty asked him...so how do you want to invite people for your birthday??? The child instantly started calling...yee..come birthday here...come come all of you...come to thish place...birthday birthday!!!...It took me a min to realise that's the invitation to the birthday party!!!:) I am sure no one can reject such an invitation ;)
This week's theme is emotions.The activity was about watching different emotions in mirror.So kids were sitting like this in row and aunty was giving different situations like: family decided to go outside and if rains or if someone helps you when you are trying to open box or how about unexpected guest comes to home...etc, and kids were making different kind of faces. It was amazing to see kids how they were opening it up.Later kids started telling different situations and we had endless situations to show our emotions:)
Today we played a game of fractions.Kids were asked to run and Number was shown to them say 2, kids made pair, later number 3, kids made triplets and so on. Later kid got introduced with 1/2- it means ,standing on knees.So we started playing game again, this time aunty said 21/2 kids took time to arrange themselves.It was fun to watch them to show 21/2. Later we played 11/2 again kids ran, discussed what is half, what is one, who should stand where ..etc. Later aunty said two halves....:))etc.
Later I realized this game can be extended to concept of 3/4 or 1/4.It would be more challenging.
Yesterday my husband fell into a pit while coming home getting off from his bus and then walking to the auto stand. He was trying to read a message in his mobile. And tapeee!!! instead of reading the message he lay there in the pit with one leg deep inside.. and two good people came rushing to him and helped him out..
So sensing an opportunity to understand my kid's view, I asked him how can his father save himself from all those numerous falls into the pits in future.. For him it was all easy.. He said fit a camera and the camera would move his father from the route and put him into the correct route before he falls into the pit.. He also illustrated how it can happen just in case I had some difficulty in understanding.. I felt like my brain was open and a bird flew out of it..
