While working with primary school children, we often use the Khushi-Khushi textbooks from Eklavya's Primary Education Programme. We also use Teaching-Learning Materials (TLMs), such as word cards, picture-word cards, poetry posters, etc. Generally, we use poetry posters in classes I, II and III to help children overcome their hesitation in speaking, identifying words and sentences and in helping them to make sense of the text they read. We have seen that children are able to do various activities based on poetry posters with ease. These activities include colouring, identifying words, encircling the identified word, writing sentences in the notebook and taking the poem forward on their own.
