Let us learn
Nina: Today I am not going to school.
It is a holiday! I am not going out to play.
It is too hot anyway! What am I going to do?
Nithin: Nina! Nina! Nina!
Nina does not reply. Nithin goes near her and shakes her head.
Nithin: I called you three times!
Nina: Sorry, I didn’t hear you.
Nithin: Let’s play a game. It’s called ‘Listen to your body’.
Nina: Really? How do we play that game?
Nithin: Sit down and do what I do.
Nithin breathes in and out. Nina breathes in and out.
Nithin: Can you hear your breath?
Nithin: I can make my breath louder… sssssssssssssssss
Nina: I can make it even louder… SSSSSSSSSSSSS
Nithin places his hand on his chest and so does Nina.
Nithin: Listen, do you hear anything?
Nina: Lup tup.Lup tup. Lup tup. Someone is playing a drum.
Nithin: That’s your heart.
It beats all the time.
It beats all day.
It beats all night.
Nithin claps his hand and so does Nina.
Nithin: I can make a song with my hands.
Nina stands up and stomps her feet.
Nina: Ha! I can make one with my feet!
Tippity-Tappity-Toe Stamp! Stamp! Stamp!
Nithin places his hand on his tummy and so does Nina.
Nina: I can hear Guddu…
Nithin: Ha ha! Are you hungry?
Whoossshhh... went the cooker. Nina turns to the sound. They both walk to the kitchen.
Nithin: I think food is ready.
Nina: How do you know?
Nithin: My nose says so!
Nina: One for me?
Father: What are you both doing in the kitchen?
Nina: We heard the cooker.
Nithin: We saw the jamuns.
The jamun is so sweet.
Father: Oh no! No more jamuns before lunch! Off you go!
Note to the teacher: Focus on naming different parts of the body and verbs related to them. Encourage children to practise the words in context.
