Kids are cute, but these kids are ridiculously cute. Their smiles are infectious and their giggles quickly become viral. It doesn’t take much to start them going – a look, a sound, the slightest touch, and the giggles erupt. They rapidly spread from one to another until the whole room is vibrating with laughter.
I’ve been spending some time with the kindergarteners – a quirky cute group of little munchkins aged 2 to 5. They’re learning about many things; their ABC’s and 123’s, their toes, their nose, and even poems about a rose.
They sing songs and learn rhymes, all in a tiny little room on the Child Haven campus here in Kaliyampoondi. I visit them occasionally and try to help out a bit with english. We go through the letters and numbers and then we start on the songs. They seem to know every children’s song I can think of and I am usually forced to fall back on old faithful – the hokey pokey. Yes, it teaches about the parts of the body and right and left and in and out, but mostly it makes me look silly and the children really love that.
It is wonderful to watch little minds at work. It always amazes me how fast they can grasp and learn new things. They are so smart, so interested in learning, and just so stinking cute.
