A Grateful Prince

Forests are enchanting, peaceful places. With stories and creatures with deep and dark secrets. At the center of one such forest, a king had strayed from his usual path. Wandering the forest, he was worried he would never find his way out.

Just then, he came upon a strange looking man. His back was bent, he held a stick to stand and his beard went all the way to the ground. That old man said, “Who are you? What are you doing here in my forest? Are you lost peasant? "

The king replied, “I am not peasant. I am the king of these lands. These forests are mine, but I am lost. Can you help me?"

Old man said, “Ash, you are the king. How very good for you. Well, my king. This forest is mine and only I know the path out of here. I can show you the way if you like. But I would want something in return."

The king surprised by the old man's behavior, but he needed to return home. He needed to be with his wife and his newborn child.
King said, “What would you want in return?"

Old man said, '' You must promise me that when I make sure you reach the gates of your kingdom, whatever walks out of it first, you will give me that in return. I will give you one day. You must promise that it will be mined forever."

The King thought himself. But then he knew that he had been wandering for too long, everyone would be worried about him. He made up his mind. He shook the hand of the old man, agreeing to his deal.

Following the hunched old man through the forest, the king was at times amused and surprised by the old man's speed and flexibility. Almost he would lead the king through lakes and tiny spaces, but somehow moving forward. At the end, the old man stayed true to his word. Finally, making him sure the king found his way home.

He said," Remember your promise, my king."

The king was greeted with flowers and screams. The people were ecstatic to see him in one piece. But one person was crying in joy, His Queen. Before the King, could say anything. She rushed towards him with their first born son in her arms. And crosses the gate. She handed over the son to king so he could see him. Now the son became the first thing to cross the gate and meet the king. As the Old man saw the child, he smiled. The king turned around and looked at him as he walked into the forest. Now the king was worried.

When the King was in his room looking out of the window, the Queen asked, “My king, you look worried. What is it? Tell me what is troubling you? Are you not happy to be home? "

The king said," No, that is not true. I am overjoyed to be home. But I have made a grave mistake my dear."

The king told his Queen everything. Every little detail that she was unaware of. The Queen was shocked by the story and they both wondered what they would do know. 

The king had an idea. The king called upon his minister and asked if there were any children born the same day as his son. The minister confirmed that a little girl was burned to a peasant couple on the same night as the prince.

The king summoned the couple and their baby to his chambers. The king spoke to the peasant, explaining everything. Knowing it would be a difficult decision for him to make. He asked for the peasant's newborn daughter to take his son's place with the old man. The King promised to take care of the peasant couple forever, if they would make their sacrifice. The couple handed their child to the king. They were very sad.

The next morning, the old man stood at the edge of the forest. Waiting for the king to arrive. Sometime had passed and then, the gates opened. The King strode on his horse towards the old man, looking angrily at him. He got off his high horse and in small basket, covered in white cloth. He delivered the crying, little baby to the old man. The Old man had an evil smile, but pleased he had gotten what he wanted. Clutching the basket, he limped into the forest and took away the baby girl.

Years later, the prince had grown. He was kind, smart, grateful and helpful to everyone around him. He was pleased to see the kingdom his father had built in good shape. The people were happy; they had food to eat and livelihood to keep them going.

One day, the prince was walking happily through the streets, at a distance peasant's wife starred at him. She looked at her husband, who shook his head. But as he turned around, her wife ran to the prince. Standing in front of him, blocking his way.

She said, '' You don't know me, my prince. But I must say this to you. Yes, the king is good man. He has taken care of his kingdom. But at what cost? At yours? Or at ours? Ask him about my child."

The prince was worried; he did not know about what the woman was talking about. At the dinner table that night, the prince asked his parents about what had happened. The king revealed everything about the journey into the forest, about the old man. A promise and the sacrifice for the glory of the kingdom. After listening his father, prince said, “I must find her. It is only because of her sacrifices, that I stand here today. I cannot be a prince or a king, until she is free. I will either bring her back or take her place."

King said, " You must do what you think is right."

Then, the next morning, the prince got ready for the journey. Taking with him a box of beds. So that he was to get lost in the forest, he could find his way home. After meeting his parents, he went to that peasant's house. He said to them, “I am very grateful to you that you sacrificed for me and the kingdom. I am going in the forest to save your daughter."

Listening this peasant couple became very happy and prayed for his success and health.

So once again, just like his father, the prince wandered into the unending forest. The prince wandered around for a day. One day, he listened the voice of Lion roaring in pain. When he went closer to the lion he saw that the lion was lying. Some kind of thorn was stuck in his paw. First, he was scared then he decided to help him. He took out that thorn from his paw. Now the lion was in some relieve from pain. But his paw was still bleeding. So, he bandaged it.

Then suddenly, that lion changed into an old man. The prince was shocked and surprised. The Old man said, “Don’t be afraid from me. I am a wizard. I had transformed myself into Lion, but that thorn stuck in my foot and I can't use my magic spell to help myself. Thank you for helping me. Tell me what do you want from me?"

The prince at once recognized that old man. He was same as described by his father.

The prince said, “So, you are the wizard. You will give me whatever I'll demand from you?"

Old man said, “Yes, I will. You owned my life.''

The prince said, " Then give me that child who you had taken from the king years ago."

The old man was surprised. He said," How do you know?"

The prince said, ' My father had told me."

Now what the wizard could do. He had a promise with prince. So he gave the daughter of that peasant back. And was disappeared in the forest. The prince along with that peasant's daughter came back home safely by following the seeds that prince had thrown on his way.

The peasant couple was very happy as they got their daughter back. The King was happy that his son had done a very good work. Now they all lived happily ever after.

Wheels on the Bus Song Lyrics
Wheels on the Bus Song Lyrics
"The Wheels on the Bus" is a traditional American folk song that has been a staple in early childhood education for decades. Its origins, like many folk songs, are somewhat murky, but its repetitive and interactive nature has made it a favorite among children and educators alike. The song is believed to have been written in the United States in the mid-20th century. Its tune is based on a traditional British song called "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush, " which has a similar repetitive structure and melody. The transformation from a song about a mulberry bush to one about a bus is a testament to the adaptability of folk music to modern contexts. "The Wheels on the Bus" is not just a song; it's also an activity. As children sing about the bus's wheels going "round and round" or the wipers going "swish swish swish, " they often mimic the actions with hand movements or full-body motions, turning the song into a lively participatory experience. Over the years, the song has been adapted and expanded upon, with countless verses being added to describe various actions on the bus, from the horn honking to the children chatting. Its universal theme of a bus journey and its catchy, repetitive melody have made "The Wheels on the Bus" a beloved song in many countries, transcending cultural and linguistic barriers. In summary, "The Wheels on the Bus" is a relatively modern addition to the canon of traditional children's songs, but its widespread popularity and adaptability have ensured its place as a timeless classic in children's music.

From understanding toddler development to implementing play-based learning principles, this article will equip you with the knowledge and tools needed to create a nurturing environment that enhances your child's cognitive, social, and emotional development. Understanding toddler development toddlers undergo rapid cognitive, social, and physical development, which lays the foundation for their future learning abilities. Cognitive development involves problem-solving, memory, and language skills. Socially, toddlers start to interact with peers and develop emotional intelligence. Their physical abilities, like fine and gross motor skills, also improve. These developmental stages are crucial to consider when planning early learning activities. By understanding them, caregivers can tailor activities to support and enhance a toddler's growth. The benefits of early learning early learning provides a multitude of benefits that have a lasting impact on a child's development. These advantages extend far beyond the toddler years and play a crucial role in shaping a child's future. Let's delve into the benefits of early learning: 1. Cognitive development: early learning activities stimulate a child's cognitive abilities, including memory, problem-solving, and critical thinking. Through exploration and play, toddlers develop the foundational skills necessary for academic success later in life. 2. Language skills: engaging in early learning activities, like reading books and engaging in conversations, enhances a child's language skills. It builds vocabulary, improves comprehension, and lays the groundwork for effective communication. 3.

They learn to take initiative, solve problems, and adapt to new situations. 7.

These skills are valuable for both artistic and problem-solving endeavours. Key principles of early learning activities effective early learning activities are built upon key principles that maximize a toddler's development and prepare them for future learning.

Honest Painter
Honest Painter
Once upon a time, in a small village far away, lived James. James was an honest man and skilled painter. He painted walls, boats, and houses and did his work with honesty and diligence. There were nights when he would go to bed hungry. He would work all day and be satisfied with whatever he earned. One fine day, a rich businessman came for a visit. He and his family had planned for a short stay in the village. The businessman entered the village in the most expensive cart. And many more carts followed him. They were full of fruits and clothes. The villagers stood in awe as the entire procession passed right in front of them. The following day, The Businessman called for James. As James walked to the Businessman's house, he met his friend, Tom. Tom said, “Hey, James! Where are you going?" James said," Hello, Tom. I am going to the Businessman's house. He has some work for me." Tom said," Listen, he is a very wealthy man. This is a good opportunity. You must charge him more than what you charge others. It's only fair. And I am sure he won't mind paying you." James said," No, Tom. It's not fair. I can't charge him more than I charge others. That's cheating! If he likes my work, then he can decide to pay me more. But I have to be honest and tell him the right price." Tom said," I am your friend, James. I respect your honesty. But honesty alone cannot feed you. You work so hard but people in this village will never have enough money to pay you. Take my advice. You should ask for at least five hundred bucks for the work he has for you." James was shocked and said, "Five hundred bucks? NO! I have never charged five hundred bucks to anyone! I understand your concern, my friend. And thank you for caring about me. But I have been doing just fine with whatever I earn." “Well... I did my part. It's up to you now." James waved goodbye to his friend and walked ahead. As James entered the house of Businessman, he was mesmerized. It was nothing less than a palace. “Oh, hello! You must be James - The Painter!” said Businessman. James said, “Yes, I am, Sir. You had some work for me? " The businessman said, “Oh, yes! The caretaker for my boat has gone out. He will be back only by tomorrow afternoon. But I need the boat to get painted. Will you be able to paint it by tonight?" "Yes, I can", said James. “Where is the boat? I will get started right away." "But you never told me how much it will cost.” said Businessman. “I charge one hundred bucks to paint a boat", said James. The businessman laughed and said," Only a hundred bucks! That's it. You can have a hundred bucks right away and that boat is near the river. You can call me when it is done." He handed over a hundred bucks to James. He took the coins and went to the paint shop. He bought paint for the boat and went straight towards the river, where the boat of Businessman was present. As he was about to begin, he saw that the boat had a hole in the center. He thought it could be dangerous. So, he filled the whole first. Then he painted the boat. He worked for hours without eating anything. He left and called the businessman to see the boat. After seeing the boat. The businessman said, “Oh! This is wonderful! You work well, James. Here take these thirty bucks. You deserve it. If I have anything else to paint, I will call you at once." James said, “You are a generous man, Sir. I shall leave now." The next morning, the businessman's family went for a ride in the boat. The Businessman waved goodbye to them at the river and went back home. As he reached, he saw the boat's caretaker walking towards him. The caretaker said, “Sir, you are here a week early." “Oh! Yes, my family insisted to see the village. They just left for their trip in the boat." The caretaker said, “What! No! We have to call them back. Right now! The businessman said, “Why are you so worried?" The caretaker said, “There is a hole in the boat.  Your family will drown. I was going to repair it today." The businessman became worried. The Businessman and the caretaker rushed towards the river. But the boat was nowhere to be seen. They searched for hours. They shouted their names. But there was no response. The Businessman knelt there and cried. The businessman said, "What have I done! My family! I should have never let them on the boat." Just as he sat there blaming himself, her wife and kids returned in the same boat. Her wife said," What happened, my dear? Why are you crying?" The businessman said," you are all safe! I was so worried. There was a big hole in the boat. I thought I have lost you." She said," But there was no hole in the boat. It's as good as new."   The caretaker said, “I’m glad that you are all safe. But I don't understand how that is possible? I know for a fact that there was a big hole right in the center of the boat. I didn't get a chance to repair it before I left. Who repaired it?"The businessman thought for a while. He then understood what had happened and immediately sent to call James the painter. James came to the businessman's house. The Businessman gave him a bag of twenty thousand dollars and said," This is your reward, James." James was surprised and said, “Reward! Reward for what?" The businessman said," Reward for your honesty and hard work. You saved my family's life. You filled up the hole in the boat. That was not your job. And you didn't even charge me for that." James couldn't believe his fate. Just yesterday, he was a painter who could earn just enough to survive. But today, he had owned gold.  MORAL LESSON Honesty is the best policy.

Let them know that you support their efforts and encourage them to take risks – this is how they grow into successful individuals.

However, there are some things that most children need to be ready for school. Here are five things that are often recommended: 1. A good night's sleep. Children who get a good night's sleep are more alert and have better concentration in the morning.2. A healthy breakfast.

How to Prepare Your Child for a Whole New School
If you're like most parents, you probably dread the thought of sending your child to a new school. But if you do it right, it can be an exciting and educational experience. There are a few things you can do to make the transition as smooth as possible for your child. In this blog post, we'll go over some essential steps you need to take to make the change go as smoothly as possible. From organizing your child's belongings to setting up a routine, read on to learn everything you need to know to prepare your child for their new school year. Setting up a new school environment for your child When your child is ready to start a new school year, there are a few things you can do to help make the transition as smooth as possible. You can get some margin to set up an agreeable school climate for your kid. Here are some suggestions for doing so: 1. Organize Your Child's Files One of the first steps in preparing your child for a new school year is organizing their files. This will help them feel more at ease and less overwhelmed by all the latest information and paperwork. Having everything in one place allows your child to access what they need when needed, rather than searching through folders scattered around the house. 2. Provide Appropriate Advanced Learning Materials If your child has been doing well in their previous schools, don't hesitate to provide them with advanced learning materials such as high-level math or vocabulary textbooks. However, discuss these materials with your teacher beforehand so they understand how much your child should be expected to cover in each class period. Additionally, it's always helpful to have cheat sheets or flashcards available so your child can review material during break periods or on their own time outside class. 3. Encourage Your Child's Interests and Talents One of the best ways to prepare your child for a new school year is by encouraging their interests and talents. Helping your child adjust to their new school When your child begins their first day of school, there is an adjustment period for both the child and the parent. To help your child adjust, be sure to follow these tips: 1. Be supportive. Let your child know you are here for them as they make new friends and start a new routine. Talk with them about what they are experiencing and let them know it will all pass in time. 2. Do not hover. Helping your child feel like they can ask for help when needed is key to allowing them to adjust to their new environment. However, avoid approaching or being overbearing; let them take the lead in initiating conversations about their school life. 3. Make an effort to get involved in extracurricular activities and clubs at school. This will give your child a sense of community and support while also allowing you to learn more about what interests your child and which clubs might be a good fit for them. 4. Set expectations early on. Please discuss with your child what academic performance is expected of them in their new setting, and be clear about any rules or regulations that apply at school (e.g., no eating or drinking outside designated areas during lunchtime). Also, clarify homework expectations so there are no surprises later in the year. Introducing your child to their new classmates Welcome to your new school! For both you and your child, this is a time of transition and excitement. There are many new people and things to learn, but everything can go smoothly with some preparation. To ensure a smooth transition, here are some suggestions: 1) Talk with your child about their new classmates. Let them know who they are, what they like to do, and what kind of personality they might expect. This will help them get to know their classmates before school starts. 2) Structured introductions will help everyone feel comfortable around each other. Have your child introduce themselves to their new friends in advance and make sure they stay on schedule. This way, there's more clarity during the first few days of school. 3) Allow plenty of time for homework assignments and socializing after school. Make it a priority for both parents to be involved in their child's education so that they have a positive experience at the new school. Showing your child how to get along with others It's time for your child to start school again. Whether they are beginning in a new grade or moving to a new school, you can do a few things to help them get ready. One important thing is to show your child how to get along with others. Here are some tips: 1. Teach your child how to say "no." One of the essential skills your child will need when starting school is saying no. This means that they will have to learn when and how to refuse requests from their classmates. Ensure they understand that sometimes it is impossible or not desirable to do what someone wants them to do. For example, if a classmate asks your child to lend them their pencil, tell them they can't because they don't have any. If this doesn't work, try saying something like, "I'm sorry, but I can't lend you my pencil right now because I'm not done with it." 2. Help your child build relationships with others. Building relationships is one of the best ways for your child to get along with others. When children spend time getting to know people, they become much more likely to cooperate and get along with those around them. To help your child build relationships, try engaging them in activities outside of school, like going on walks or playing together at home. Also, make sure you spend time talking with them about their friends and what makes them. Encouraging your child to try new activities If your child is excitedly approaching the school year 2019, there are plenty of activities to keep them engaged. One way to encourage new interests and activities is to offer a variety of options for exploration. Let your child try out new things, whether exploring the outdoors, joining a club, volunteering with local organizations, or taking classes in a new subject. It can be helpful for children to experience different aspects of life to understand better where they want to focus their energies in later years. Exposing them to various cultures and viewpoints can help them develop critical thinking skills and tolerance for other people's beliefs. It's also important to set limits so your child doesn't overdo things and gets overwhelmed. Be encouraging and tell them you will always be there for them.
