Pratham Books Champion : BrainSmart

Shailja Shaily's sends us a note about her storytelling session she conducted on behalf of BrainSmart. Shailija is a mother of 2. She used to be a Procter and Gamble trainer. Currently, she works with kids. Brainsmart is a brain development program for kids. We focus on life skills, how to be happy, expressing our thoughts with confidence and learning with fun through 5 sense learning.

Session conducted on : 26th August
Number of kids : 20
Language the session was conducted in : Hindi and English

We did TAKLOO storytelling session in my Brainsmart class (in Mumbai) on 26th August. We received the Takloo book in Hindi and we presented in 'Hinglish' (Hindi + English).  Number of kids present there were 20.

We did story telling of 'Takloo' by teachers and older kids. We did role play and dramatisation of the story, colouring of 'pot', discussed concepts of optimum pot, coins tale.... and full fun. 

I used little boy Takloo's story for pumping inspiration and a creative idea generation exercise with my students. It was altogether a cheerful wonderful experience for all of us there.

Thank you for spreading the joy of reading Shailija!

In its third edition of the 'One Day - One Story' campaign, Pratham Books was joined by 1300+ storytellers who conducted 1500+ storytelling sessions. More than a 1000 steps towards a 'Reading India'!

What started as a small step by Pratham Books to spread the joy of reading has become a movement. In 2012, Pratham Books initiated the One Day-One Story initiative on the occasion of International Literacy Day . We will be sharing the stories of all our volunteer storytellers (Pratham Books Champions) through our blog.
