Each minister looked at the line and was puzzled. No one could think of any way to make it longer. No one could think of how it could be made shorter without erasing it. Birbal started smiling.

M 2015-16 Picture story One day a little mouse was looking for something to eat. He found a pencil. "I'm going to bite you," said the mouse. And he bit it hard. “You are hurting me,” said the pencil. “Let me draw you one last picture and then you can do what you like!" “Very well,” said the mouse. The pencil drew a big circle. “Is that a cheese?" asked the mouse. 2015-16 “We'll call it a cheese,” said the pencil and it drew three little circles inside the big one. 11 “That's an apple,” squeaked the mouse. “Let's call it an apple,” said the pencil and it began drawing some funny curved things near the second circle. “Why, those are cucumbers,” said the mouse, licking his lips. "I wish you'd hurry. I simply can't wait to get my teeth into them!" The pencil drew two little triangles on the top circle. “Oh, oh!” squeaked the mouse. “Now you've made it like a cat! Don't go on!” 2015-16 But the pencil went on, till it had drawn long whiskers and a mouth on the top circle. And the mouse cried out in terror, “It's a real cat! Help!” Now see if YOU can draw a cat that looks real enough to frighten away the mice! – V. Suteyev ► Describe the cat in your own words. 2015-16 Let's make A PENCIL CAP Material required – A 2” by 2” square piece of chart paper, red and black sketch pens and glue.

When done by a sensitive teacher, this will sow seeds of self-esteem and the 'I can' feeling. Before beginning the lesson, please observe the child's inclination for simple puzzles as in- (a) What will come next? ODD = OD ? Give the children more creative experiences that enrich their personalities. This Unit shows the children that language is more than talking, reading and listening. Language creates pictures just as crayons, paints and clay can create pictures. Help children feel that words can be used to make things appear vividly. Help children identify the new words centred on pictures and colours. Develop listening skills Read the lesson and let the children share with you what they feel Birbal was thinking about. Then give them some inputs/and let them change the ending of the story as they would have liked. Encourage the children to read more stories on using wit and humour. Ci Develop vocabulary In this section the teacher can use various objects to show children some comparisons. For example: A big book, a bigger book and the biggest book. A tall boy, a taller boy and the tallest boy etc. • Explain to the children about different ways of making singular-plurals (es, ves, ies). M 1200 2015-16 • Give more activities of adjectives (black, sad, happy, long...) • Talk to children about the different rooms in their house. Develop reading skills During the picture story you can walk around in the class. This activity is an individual activity to encourage children into the habit of understanding and interpreting the text through the medium of drawing. After the class has finished drawing, give some time to the children to close their eyes and think. (clue: relation between cat and mouse. Ans: The mouse would run away seeing the cat). Now ask the children to write a sentence and then read it aloud. Let the class • Imagine their favourite food. Draw a picture of the dress their brother/sister wore.
