Story Time!

Let me tell you the story of a preschooler named Sonia J

It was a bright sunny morning.

Sonia walked into preschool with her friends. As she walked in, she pointed out to her friends that it was a sunny day, when she was interrupted by the class helper who told her to stop talking and get to her class.

Once in class, Sonia and her friends ran to the window to observe a cloud that looked like a rabbit, when the teacher walked in and ordered them to get back to their seats.

During snack break, Sonia commented to her friends that the piece of roti in her hand resembled a square, when the principal who was passing by told her to stop talking and finish her snack.

After school, as Sonia waited to be picked up by her mother, she and her friends began drawing different shapes on the blackboard, when again the teacher shouted at them to stop drawing and get back to their seats!

And that is the end of the story.

Now that you’ve read the story, go ahead and reflect on the following questions!

  • How would you feel if you were Sonia?

  • Do you think Sonia learnt while she expressed, either in words or in pictures?

  • Do you think constant suppression of thoughts, words and actions benefits children?
