We are learning
Here comes, our teacher
Ammu saw the teacher coming into the class. Ammu wanted to hide Bittu. But she was afraid. What will happen if Bittu comes out again from the bag?
But she had no other way left before her. She put Bittu back in the bag.
"Bittu don't come out again. Our teacher is coming," she said to Bittu.
Bittu looked at Ammu and whispered. "OK, I will sit in the bag."
Teacher in the class
The teacher entered the class. She went to the table to keep her books. She saw the colour bottle turned over and colours spilled out all over the table. She turned back to ask children what had happened. She saw colours on their clothes, faces, hands, legs, hair, neck and all over their body.
'They have played with the colours,' she thought.
"What si this? Go and wash yourselves."
The colour I like
The children came out of the class.
They walked towards the water tap. They looked at each other. They looked funny with colours on their body.
John looked at his arm and said, "My arm is red. I like this colour." All the children started talking about the colours they liked.
Saleem said, "I like green colour."
Children at the water tap
Now the children are at the water tap. They are washing the colour on their hands, legs and face. Fathima and Ganga are looking at each other. They talk about the colour they have on their body.
"Ganga, there is blue colour on your neck," said Fatima.
Ganga smiled and said, " I am washing my neck. Look, there is red colour on your leg."
"I am washing my led," said Fatima.
Song at the water tap
Eswar also was at the water tap. He liked the colour very much. But he had to wash it. Otherwise the teacher will not allow him to sit in the class.
"I have to wash my hands," he thought. So he started washing his hands. While washing he watched the colour flowing out along with water. He liked it very much. And he started singing.
Wash your hands
This is the way I wash my hands, wash my hands
Hearing these others also stated singing.
I am story
The teacher saw Ammu sitting alone in the class with fear. Teacher called Ammu near her. Ammu walked solely towards the teacher. Bittu peeped out of the bag thinking that the teacher would punish Ammu for bringing him into the class. Teacher saw Bittu colours all over his body.
"Is it your squirrel?" the teacher asked.
"Yes teacher," Answered Ammu.
"You have brought a squirrel into the class. See what it has done."
Ammu felt sorry for what had happened.
"I am sorry for what had happened.
"I am sorry teacher."
"Don't bring pets into the class."
Draw your pet and talk about it.
The children are in the class room now. The teacher tells the children, "You much not tease the animals. They like us. We must treat them with love. Do you all have pets at home? Children say something about pets."
