He had worked for many years in the house of a farmer. He had carried many heavy sacks of corn and sugarcane, from the farm to the factory. He was now very tired and old. The farmer said to Goopu, “You are a good donkey. Take this sack of corn and go and see the world, before you become too old.” Goopu smiled and said goodbye. He set off towards the city of Mumbai. “I am good at music. I will go to Mumbai and be a musician there.” On the way he met a dog. 128 “Where are you going?” asked Doopu. “I am going to Mumbai to be a musician. Would you like to come too?” asked Goopu. “Yes, I would,” replied Doopu. Off went the two friends on the dusty road to Mumbai. They saw a ball of fur in the middle of the road. “Who are you?” they asked. “I am Furry, the cat,” said the cat. “Would you like to come with us to become a musician?” asked Goopu and Doopu together. 129 “Oh! I would love to come along,” replied Furry. So off went the three together to become Mumbai musicians. Soon they met Cuckoo, the cock. “I love music and wish to join your band.” They all reached a house with a light. They were tired and hungry. They peeped in through the window and saw a table with delicious food. They decided to sing to let the people inside know that they were musicians. 130 They sang. The people inside thought that ghosts had come to scare them. They ran away as fast as they could! Goopu, Doopu and Furry went into the house and ate the food, till they could eat no more. tired, musician, peeped, delicious, ghosts, scare New words 131 – Adapted from The Bremen Town Musicians by Grimm Reading is fun ► ► ► Let’s talk ► ► Why did the farmer tell Goopu to see the world?

Get together with your friends. As a group create the sound of the animal each one of you wants to be. The donkey saw a ball of fur and it was a cat. If you were to see a big ball of fur what could that be? 132 ► Let’s sort out these words – Pick the words from the bags and put them on the right shelf. One has been done for you.

Children can be asked to sing the poem aloud with the class orchestra – where children clap, tap and drum their tiffin boxes, benches, etc. to make the sounds of musical instruments. If possible, the teacher should show the children musical instruments before beginning the lesson. The teacher can inculcate in children a love for the old and the weak. Children love stories and as the Unit is read, an emphasis can be laid on the generosity of the farmer (who not only asked the donkey who was growing old to see the world but also gave him some corn) by using voice modulation. This can often be done during fun time. In the section teacher should try to encourage the children by reminding them the names of various animals that can be kept at home. In the section teacher should call out the opposites of the twelve words given in random order. In the section of the poem, teacher should emphasise the usage of ‘a’ by asking the children to pick up objects and name them with an ‘a’. e.g., a pencil box. In the section see that children distinguish between ‘b’ and ‘v’ and ‘v’ and ‘w’ sounds. This unit calls for a new listening skill. As you read the poem, the children listen to the sound of words. They grow in their appreciation and understanding of the beauty and feeling which some words convey. Let the children read the poem with you until most of them learn to say it. Ask them how the poem makes them feel. An exposure to the English language is important. Prepare the child to receive language. This is more important than asking her/him to learn texts by heart. l l l l l Develop listening skills Raising awareness Let’s talk Fun time Let’s write Let’s say
