“There is no friend as loyal as a book” – Ernest Hemingway, author.
Moral stories serve as a useful platform to educate listeners, especially young children. It is an idyllic medium through which children can be taught valuable lessons about life because the engaging narratives captivate even young children’s attention.
On 11th September2020 an online story telling session was conducted by English Facilitator Ms. Sangamitra Das for Grade 3 students.
The title of the story was ‘The Milkmaid’ . This was a story of a little girl who had high dreams but due to her lack of concentration and unwise planning, all her dreams shattered.
This was followed by an interactive session wherein the students shared their understanding and reflections on the story and the moral values within the story.
The moral of the story was ’Do not count your chickens before they are hatched. It means that it is unwise to make plans based on something that hasn’t happened.
The results indicated that value-based stories help students to raise their self-esteem and take greater responsibility for their own behaviour and learning
The main objective of this session was moral stories to inspire the students to read moral stories which will enable them to choose their own positive personal, moral and values like good mannerism and to take greater responsibility for their own behaviour.
