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.

The Essential Guide To Early‎‎‎‎‎ Learning Activities For Toddlers
In the early years of a child's life, fostering a love for learning sets the stage for a lifetime of curiosity and intellectual growth. This essential guide explores the world of early learning activities for toddlers, offering valuable insights and practical advice for parents and caregivers. 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. Social skills: group activities and interactions with peers during early learning foster essential social skills. Toddlers learn to share, cooperate, and navigate social dynamics, setting the stage for healthy relationships and teamwork. 4. Emotional intelligence: early learning provides a safe environment for children to identify and manage their emotions. It helps them develop self-awareness, empathy, and emotional regulation skills, which are crucial for mental well-being. 5. School readiness: children who engage in early learning activities tend to be better prepared for school. They often exhibit better attention spans, curiosity, and a readiness to learn, making the transition to formal education smoother. 6. Confidence and independence: early learning activities encourage children to explore and experiment, boosting their confidence and independence. They learn to take initiative, solve problems, and adapt to new situations. 7. Creativity and imagination: activities that encourage creativity, such as drawing, storytelling, and imaginative play, nurture a child's creativity and imagination. 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. These principles guide caregivers and educators in creating meaningful and engaging experiences for young children. 1. Play-based learning: play is the primary vehicle for early learning. Toddlers naturally explore their world through play, which allows them to make sense of their surroundings, test ideas, and develop problem-solving skills. Early learning activities should be designed to be fun, interactive, and playful, encouraging children to engage their imagination and creativity. 2. Individualized pace: each child develops at their own pace. It's essential to tailor early learning activities to the unique needs and abilities of the child. This principle recognizes that children may progress at different rates in various areas of development. Caregivers should observe a child's interests and abilities and adjust activities accordingly, ensuring that the child feels neither rushed nor held back. 3. Nurturing creativity: creativity is a vital aspect of early learning. Activities should encourage children to express themselves, experiment with ideas, and find innovative solutions. Artistic activities, imaginative play, and open-ended projects all promote creativity, fostering a love for exploration and innovation. 4. Hands-on exploration: toddlers learn best by actively engaging with their environment. Early learning activities should provide opportunities for hands-on exploration and sensory experiences. Activities like building with blocks, exploring textures, or conducting simple science experiments allow children to investigate, manipulate, and learn through their senses. 5. Positive and supportive environment: a positive and supportive environment is vital for early learning success. Caregivers and educators should create a safe, encouraging, and nurturing atmosphere where children feel comfortable taking risks and making mistakes. Praise and positive reinforcement help build confidence, motivation, and a positive attitude toward learning. Practical early learning activities engaging in practical early learning activities is an effective way to support a toddler's development while making the learning experience enjoyable. Here are practical early learning activities that parents and caregivers can incorporate into their routines: 1. Reading together: reading is one of the most beneficial early learning activities. Choose age-appropriate books with colourful illustrations and engaging stories. Read to your toddler regularly, making it a special bonding time. Point to pictures, ask questions and encourage your child to participate in the storytelling. 2. Building with blocks: building with blocks promotes fine motor skills, spatial awareness, and problem-solving abilities. Provide a variety of building materials, such as wooden blocks or soft foam blocks, and let your child explore their creativity by constructing structures. 3. Sensory play: sensory activities engage multiple senses and support cognitive and emotional development. Create sensory bins with materials like rice, sand, or water. Add toys and objects for exploration, allowing your toddler to touch, feel, and experiment. 4. Arts and crafts: art activities encourage creativity and fine motor skills. Offer crayons, coloured pencils, finger paints, and various art supplies. Let your child draw, colour, and create their masterpieces. 5. Nature exploration: exploring nature is a rich source of learning for toddlers. Take nature walks and point out different plants, animals, and natural phenomena. Encourage your child to ask questions and observe the world around them. Creating a learning-enriched environment to foster effective early learning, it's essential to make a home environment that encourages exploration and discovery. Having a variety of age-appropriate books and toys readily accessible is a great start. Arrange play spaces that are safe, engaging, and free from distractions. Utilize everyday experiences, like cooking or going for a walk, as opportunities for learning. By enriching the environment, caregivers can facilitate continuous learning in their toddler's daily life. Conclusion nurturing a toddler's early learning is a vital investment in their future. By understanding developmental stages, embracing play-based learning, and creating a rich learning environment, caregivers can set the stage for a lifetime of curiosity and knowledge acquisition. Through practical activities and a supportive approach, early learning becomes an enjoyable journey for both toddlers and their caregivers.
A Cursed House
A Cursed House
Once upon a time, in a small house in the forest, there was a couple living with their two daughters, Nami and Angela. The older sister Nami was very lazy and spent all day hanging out. Angela was very hard-working and cared about everyone. One day, the father went to the forest to cut firewood. He told his wife and children," I'll go cut firewood now. Please prepare a delicious meal and bring it to the forest for me." Mother said, “I’ll ask Nami to bring lunch to you." Father said, “The path there is confusing. I will spread the peas along the way so she can find me." At noon, Nami brought rice to the forest for her father. Along the way she saw a lot of peas that her father had left. She thought she could found her father easily with peas that were spread on the way. So she decided to walk slowly and enjoy the forest. Nami wandered around and had a lot of fun. She was distracted by the beauty of the forest, so she forgot her job. She didn't even realize that the birds ate all of the peas. It was dark and she couldn't found the peas that her father had left. Nami tried to find her way in the dark. She followed a glimmer of light and found a small house in the middle of the forest. She approached and knocked on the door, and then she heard a voice, "Come in!” Nami walked in the house and saw an old man sitting next to the fire. There were also three animals, a dog, a rooster and a hen. The old man asked, “Who are you? Why are you wandering through the forest?” Nami said, “Sir, I was lost on the way to bring lunch to my father. Could you please allow me to stay for a night?” The old man asked his pets whether he should allow Nami to stay a night in this house or not. The pets shook their heads in favor of Nami. The old man said to Nami, “We will let you sleep here for one night. There is a lot of food in the kitchen, please go and cook dinner for all of us!" Nami was very happy. She went to the kitchen and saw a lot of food there. But she was lazy; Nami only cooked a small pot of soup. Nami brought the soup to the living room to eat with old man .But she forgot to cook for the animals, leaving them hungry. They were all very sad about the girl's carelessness. After having the soup. She said to old man, “Sir, I'm tired now, I just want to go to sleep. Please show me where the bedroom is." Old man said, “There are two bedrooms here. Please go clean them up and make the bed for me as well, I'll come late.” Nami obeyed the old man, she went upstairs. There were two rooms. She went into one of that room and cleaned a bed for herself. She was lazy; she didn't clean the bed for the old man. She just lay down and slept without making the bed for the old man. By the time the old man went into his room, he found the bed still dusty and messy. He sighs and said to himself, “well, this is not the girl that I'm looking for! She is very lazy and disrespectful." The old man snapped his fingers. Suddenly the bed, where Nami was sleeping, split into two pieces. She fell down and disappeared, and then the bed returned to normal. Later the day, when the woodcutter returned home, he complained to his wife, “I have been starving all day today." Wife said, “I told Nami to bring food to you. She must have wandered around and went to his aunt house. This careless girl!” Father said, “Tomorrow, I will go the forest again. Tell Angela to bring food to me." The next day, Angela went to the forest to bring food to her father. Unlike her sister Nami, she followed her father's path very carefully. She reached her father in half an hour. The father was very happy to see her daughter, Angela.  Angela said, “Hello! Father, mother had cooked a very delicious meal for you. Now, I must leave, It's already getting dark." Father said, “Yes, You should leave and thank you for this meal." After saying goodbye to her father she started walking back to her house. But, the birds had eaten all the peas in the way. It was very difficult for her to find her way back home. She was lost and it was dark everywhere around. Angela followed a glimmer of light. She found a small house in the middle of the forest. She approached and knocked on the door. She said, “Is there anyone here?” She listened a voice, “Come in!” Angela went inside, and she saw the old man sitting in front of the fire with three pets. The Old man said, “Who are you? Why are you lost here?" She said," Sir, my name is Angela. I was coming back home after giving lunch to my father, and I got lost. Could you please allow me to sleep here for one night?” As usual, the old man asked the three animals beside him. He said, " Hey hen, rooster and dog, what do you think?” They said," Master, we are fine with that!” The old man said, “We will let you sleep here for one night. There is a lot of food in the kitchen, please go and cook dinner for all of us!” Angela obeyed him and went to the kitchen. She saw lots of good ingredients there. She decided to cook some delicious dishes to thank old man and for the pets for letting her stay. Then, Angela cooked a lot of delicious dishes. The old man and the animals were very hungry just by the smell. Angela invited the old man to enjoy the meal first and then went to feed the three animals. They happily thanked her. After that, she sat down to eat with the old man. Once every one had finished eating, Angela suggested, "We have finished the meal. Shall we get some rest now?”   The old man said to his pets, "Hey hen, rooster and dog, what do you think?" They said, “She treats us very well. Thank you very much! Have a goodnight!” The old man said to Angela, “There are two bedrooms in the house. Please go clean up and make the bed for me as well. I'll be right up". Angela obeyed the old man. She carefully cleaned up and made the bed in both bedrooms. After the old man went to bed, she went back her room to sleep. That night she slept very well. The next morning, she woke up early. Angela was very surprised to find herself in a luxurious and beautiful room. Suddenly, three servants entered the room. They politely asked her, “You are awake madam. Do you need anything?” She was still surprised, she said, “No, I have to get up to make breakfast for the old man and three friendly animals. The servants said, “You don't have to do anything anymore, mam. Our master is waiting for you, Ma'am". Following the servants instructions, Angela went into a room. She was surprised to see a young handsome man waiting for her. That man said to Angela, “I am Prince Garry, the owner of this castle. I was cursed by a witch so I became very old. The castle also turned into a small house and my three loyal servants turned into pets. The witch had said only a caring and responsible girl can lift this curse. So, I thank you for helping me." Angela was very happy after listening this. The prince then said, “When the castle was cursed, there came a girl named Nami, who was lost in the forest. She was lazy and irresponsible." Angela at once said, “She is my sister. Where is she, now?” Prince said, “Don’t worry. Your sister is fast asleep in the room. My servant will go wake her up." Then prince asked Angela that If she would marry him. Angela accepted the proposal of the prince. They welcomed Angela's parents in the castle and held a grand wedding in the castle. MORAL LESSON We should be responsible.We should take care of the people around us.We should be kind and respectful.

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.

Doll and character play can often take quite a while, so it's essential to factor that into the equation. Drawing and Painting Kids love to draw and paint with crayons, colored pencils, and paints.

It depends on the child and what they are interested in.   Parents can help guide their children by providing essential tips on improving their techniques and creating artwork that will be their own unique style. First, parents should encourage their children to use various colors when painting or drawing. This way, the art will look more vibrant and colorful. Second, parents should help their children learn how to outline objects with a light pen or pencil before filling them in with color. This will help create smoother lines and prevent the image from looking jagged or unfinished. Finally, it is helpful for kids to have fun when painting or drawing by incorporating different themes or scenes into their pieces. This will make the process more enjoyable and encourage them to explore new ideas artistically. Imaginative Play Creative play is one of the best activities for kids. It helps them develop problem-solving skills, creativity, and imagination. Children of all ages can enjoy many different types of imaginative play. Some examples include painting, drawing, sculpting, making movies and animations, playing music, creating electronic games, and cooking. What type of creative play interests your child? Let them be the judge!
How to Help Your Children Learn to Count and Recognize Numbers
How to Help Your Children Learn to Count and Recognize Numbers
Will you teach your child how to count and remember numbers? These simple tips can help you get started if that's the case. Some are good for kids of all ages, while others are only good for kids of a certain age. Using Cards It looks great and is easy to make. You'll need some construction paper or cardstock, some pictures (I used carrots), and scissors to make your counting cards. Put your baby on the floor and show him number one. "That's one," you say. One carrot only. What is the number of carrots? Tell your child to say "One" over and over again. You should make a point. Don't worry if your child stops caring after just one card. Since you can only teach one number at a time, you're already doing well. Small children, especially boys, can't pay attention for long. Don't try to force it. I'd do it again the next day, and if he kept sitting, I'd move on to number 2. You can stop here if your child can sit still through number three. Before adding more, make sure he can count up to three pictures on the cards. "Where is it?" asked the person. He should be able to show you the card with the number one on it. What will happen to both of them? He should be able to say at least two things that show this. Once he knows which card goes with which number, you can move on to the next step. Keep doing it this way until he can count the pictures independently. Over time, he will learn to sit still for long stretches, especially if you make it fun. Number Puzzles Puzzles are fantastic. A dollar store is where it was bought. Please sit down and work on the puzzle with your child to teach him something. Tell him the name of each number he is returning. Tell him to say them again. Use the numbers to play by giving them goofy voices and interacting with your child via them. (Deep voice) Hello, my name is Six! My belly is pretty big. What are you called? He'll like it if you do silly things. Bears and Chips in Your Pocket I think I bought these from Walmart. Your child can learn to count in a fun way with them. Everything you already have in your home can be used. Put them near your child, so you can help him count them. Start with a small dose and then up it as he gets better. Number-Based Toys There was a yard sale where you could buy these. I like to tell my child the name of the number and a little bit about it in a funny voice. Then I'll show them to my child and ask him to pick a few. Flashcards Fun flashcards always have a number on one side and a picture on the other. I like showing my kid the number and explaining what it means before flipping the card over and having him count how many items are on the other side. For them, it's always fun to see what picture is on the back. After a few numbers, ask your kids to point to certain numbers. "All right, where are the three?" has the little one pointed to the third one. Excellent work! So that makes all three! What will happen to both of them? A child doesn't choose the right card. Uh-oh! You're getting close! Where did the other two go? If he can't find it, help him. Then heap praise on them! Books Children can learn a lot from number books and books that help them count. Children like to look at books and might not even realize they are learning simultaneously. The books I write are in Spanish. But these two are just as good, and you can read them in English. Dotted Patterns Making these kinds of cards is easy for a game about finding dot patterns. First, lay out the card with the number one, the card with the matching dot pattern, the card with the number two, and the card with the matching dot pattern. Tell your child to match the composite cards with the dot pattern cards that go with them. After he learns how to match, give him more cards to match. Help him count the dots on the dot trend cards and figure out what number goes with each one.   Counting Cookie Smart Snacks We like this toy. Playing with all of these with your child is a great way to help them learn to remember and count. Make believe you're hungry and want some cookies. Your child says, "I'm very hungry!" Let me eat number two, please. Act as if you're going to eat the cookie your child gives you. If your child gives you the wrong cookie, act upset, like you want to cry, and ask again for number two. When you act so dramatically, kids often find it funny. Education-related placemats These are inexpensively priced at Walmart. Eating can be a teaching experience if you approach it with the right attitude. Even your little kid can figure out how much to eat. You could also ask how many he wants. Another fun way to sneak in a lesson is to use numbers and count while kids eat snacks. Flooring Tiles I found several of them at a yard sale for a very low price, but you can also buy them on Amazon and at Toys R Us. I like to set them up by number in a hopscotch pattern. Then I play hopscotch with the kids and say the numbers I land on. Tell your child to do what you are doing. You can also tell them to jump when you call out certain numbers.
