Mentor Time - 13th January

Experimenting with Stories- Tweaking and Twisting the tales!

“Sharing imaginative tales is one way to give children a break from technology!”

Children have an innate love of stories. Stories create magic and a sense of wonder at the world. Stories teach us about life, about ourselves and about others. Storytelling is a unique way for students to develop an understanding, respect and appreciation for other cultures, and can promote a positive attitude to people from different lands, races and religions.

So, in the Mentor Time Session we decided to explore more joy and happiness by giving the opportunity to the children to do experiment with stories by tweaking and twisting. This time they had to twist and tweak the original story and present a new version! 

The stage was set…. The narrators were ready. The camera rolled on and the tale began… participants had a ball as they narrated their versions of the old time favorite tales. 

Young learners added a remarkable variety of personal experiences by tweaking and twisting the stories. The creative skills they learnt during the session is the tool they use to shape their thoughts and feelings. It is more than a way of exchanging information and extending ideas, it is their means of reaching out and connecting with other people. Stories can link not only between the world of classroom and home but also between the classroom and beyond. 

The session helped in strengthening their analytical and critical thinking abilities. Each one of them challenged their oratory skills by modulating their voice as per the need of the story and its characters. Tweaking and Twisting the tales proved out to be the most entertaining way of learning by doing. The participant and the audience both were equally engrossed!

"Experimenting is inventing, growing, taking risks, making mistakes and having fun"
