Positive Life

This week we have a presentation on Positive Thinking. Depending on our Balika/Bal Mandal the little train that could maybe an example that will not resonate. They have heard it many times, they may feel like you are talking down to them, they may get restless with the repetitive nature of the story.

We can try and punch of the story through different storytelling techniques some examples:

  • Every time the engine feels like giving up, have all the kids shout words of encouragement.
  • Have the kids clap or stomp to the I-think-I-can beat
  • Change the story point of view from an omniscient narrator to maybe someone riding the train
Also parts of these seemed pertinent depending on the age of your kids
