  • Here is Monu, like I have never seen him before - thrilled, excited, happy and just totally eager to be part of the class. He is in the Martin Luther King team whose star chart you can see at the right side of this photo.

    Clicked this priceless expression right after the water spray (as a reward for getting action words right - he even wrote them on a notebook) !

    Post lunch sessions can be sleepy and dull in the insanely humid weather of Mumbai, India. The fans don't work (I teach in a low income community school) and the classrooms get very hot during the afternoon. Kids get restless and lose focus in the lessons. Doing some exercises and activities help but I found this simple and inexpensive solution that kept the kids wide awake and made them scream with joy every time I sprayed a mist of water on the face! They were competing, answering and behaving well for this spray of water.
