Let us learn
Not That One
It was a holiday.
Gopi wanted to do... SOMETHING!
“Mom, what is in that green box?” said Gopi.
Mom was reading.
Gopi put a stool over a chair.
He climbed up to get the box down.
“No, no! Not that one! All those boxes will fall on our heads, Gopi!” said mom.
Gopi was angry with his mother.
“Come, let‛s go to the market.
I will get you something,”said mom.
“Yes, we will,” said Gopi.
They went to the market. Gopi was still angry.
“I want that one!” he said, pointing to an apple.
“No, no, not that one!
The fruits will fall down!” said the shopkeeper.
“I want that book!” said Gopi.
“No, no, not that one!” said the shopkeeper. “The books will fall down.”
“I want that one!” shouted
Gopi, almost pulling out a samosa from a high stack of samosas.
“No, no, not that one!” warned the shopkeeper.
“All my samosas will fall down!”
He was now in a very, very bad mood.
“I want that one!” said Gopi loudly.
“No, no, not that one! The flowers will fall down.” said the flower seller.
By now, Gopi was crying loudly.
Everyone was looking at Gopi.
“I want that one! The black one!”
said mom loudly.
Gopi stopped crying suddenly.
What was the black one?
He saw a basket of puppies.
“Mom, no, no! Not that one!”
“Let‛s take this brown one!” said Gopi.
Then, Gopi gently took the brown puppy.
It was on top of the pile.
Mom smiled. Gopi was smiling too.
He was happy.
Note to the teacher: Focus on the characters and their feelings. Help children make connections with their everyday life. Practise the structures used in the story in context.
