Mithu and Mithi - Stories and craft making activity

The second story chosen for the reading - story telling - craft session, was 'Mithu and Mithi' by Mohini Bakshi - published in 1971.
It is a beautiful folk tale from India, about a pair of parrots called 'Mithu' and 'Mithi', who loved each other very much! A sweet tale expressing their love and friendship and how much they care for each other. The children enjoyed the story and wanted to share it with their families. They also decided to enact the tale as we read out the story aloud and watch the characters come alive!!!

After working on the book covers we also made some photo frames and pasted some parrot cutouts on them!
We'll be back with more stories as we explore new ones!

LAST MINUTE SCHOOL PROJECT : Making a model of the Colosseum using cardboard.

Children often come in with last minute projects to complete. Here is one such example.We printed a few pictures of the Colosseum for guidance.Corrugated cardboard or cardboard box were used for the base and the main building. The cardboard cutout of a carton was easy to roll and secure, so it is better to choose a slightly softer version of cardboard. Paper tape was good to secure the shape and later painted so it doesn't show that much. Being a school project I prefer to use paints the student is more familiar with due to the time constraint so we used poster paints. For the base we covered a rectangular piece of cardboard with a green sheet of crepe paper.

I must say that it turned out impressive for a quick project! The best part was when Manya carried it home with a big smile!


Easy step by step drawings are always a favorite in my class. Since we chose tailor bird this week I needed to present a step by step instruction as well.

So here we are with 'a not a very easy step by step drawing', according to my 1st graders :)
And a few photos of the common tailor birds  visiting our yard.

Such cute birds aren't they :)

Below are artworks made by the children:

Well, I'm sure we'll post more tailor bird artworks shortly as I see them coming...

Enjoy a beautiful spring weekend!
