They must also be asked not to be aggressive on the playground. A smile and consideration for others can achieve much more than arrogant or aggressive behaviour, or the use of force and violence. Let the children talk about something they achieved through gentle means, e.g., taking a book back from a younger sister or brother before it is torn without snatching it from their hands. Discuss the meaning of being a bully and whether they ever bully others. Read the poem and the play aloud with expression and actions. The class can be asked to guess the meaning of the difficult words. Avoid explanation as much as possible, especially of poems. Let them arrive at their own meanings, which they can change or modify by listening to class discussions and to other children. This will also give you an opportunity to observe if children are listening. If you feel that they are fumbling, you can backtrack and involve them in reading the poem and the prose aloud. All meanings need not be explained immediately. Discuss with the class how the sun brings light, warmth and joy to the world. Talk also about a world without sunshine and about what would happen to all the birds, animals, plants, etc. Help the children to enact the play with expression and actions. You could use a yellow mask with extending rays for the Sun and a grey mask with chubby cheeks for the Wind, made of chart paper. Coloured glazed paper could be pasted on it for a colourful effect. Bring a coat and a handkerchief for the Man. Make sure that everybody Develop listening skills l l Group Time Develop vocabulary l 52 participates by making blowing sounds like the Wind and actions like the Sun. Help the children with word games (like the picture crossword) and word building on the blackboard. Explain 'doing' words (these could be enacted as well), opposites, rhyming words etc. with more examples of your own. Encourage the children to give their own examples. Participation of all children is more important than their giving correct answers, for interest will surely increase the will to learn. Use contextual words like 'hot', 'cold', 'strong', 'weak'. Let children build words with – hot pot cot Lead them to weave sentences using these words like – Are you feeling hot? Do you sleep on a cot? 1. Sounds of words using : W — Whooooo, Watch, Water, Wall, Warm. V — Van, Violin, Very, Vet Remember : When we say ‘V’ we bite our lips . When we say ‘W’ the lips go round and do not meet. Conversation based on 'Role-play' . Divide your class in four groups and let them enact the parts of the wind, sun, a smile, flowers, etc. Check the students grip on the pencil (the tripod grip) and help individual children write words from A to Z . You can write the alphabet and words on cardboard sheets (use old cartons for the sheet) and hang them in the class. Let each child write her/his name under the alphabet with which her/his name starts. If there are letters with which no name starts involve children in a class activity of coining new names to write under those letters. l l Exposure to language l l Develop speaking skills l Develop writing skills 53
