21 Aug Team Little Einsteins unravelling bundles of joy
Happiness gathered its most vibrant colours to form a rainbow which connected Adyar and Kilpauk. The girls at Avvai Home, Adyar and the boys at Christian Mission Service Children’s Home (CMS) Kilpauk were a bundle of joy waiting to be unravelled. And when it was, oh my god, we were all spellbound by the beauty of the scene.
This year after phenomenal success of science exhibition at Siragugal, we at Little Einsteins (LE) felt more confident and passionate. Hence we decided that we can and we will expand. After a round of phone calls and meetings we decided to freeze Avvai Home and CMS, two extremely different centres with very similar needs.
Our team broke the ice at these centres on July 24th and 31st respectively. Volunteers planned a lot of games for the kids but wow, planning never works with children 🙂 They were unmanageable when they started playing with balls and balloons and volunteers readily joined them.
The icebreakers started off with a round of introductions, after which what followed can’t be articulated. We were playing, jumping, dancing and singing heartily with the children. It was irresistible and it would not be wrong to say that we became children too.
The icebreaker was followed by an assessment test. It comprised of 30 multiple choice questions which were to assess the children. This clearly defined the areas from which we had to start our lessons.
We look forward to a great year with these children, and challenge ourselves to make a significant difference in their lives – both academic and personal 🙂
