Yogesh As four-year-old Yasmeen gets ready to throw the ball into the basket, the anganwadi teacher claps her hands and calls Yasmeen’s name repeatedly. All the children also clap their hands to encourage Yasmeen to throw the ball. The ball misses the basket and falls. The teacher continues to clap, picks up the ball and gives it to Yasmeen with a smile and asks her to throw it again. The encouragement continues. The ball misses the basket. The teacher once again picks up the ball with a smile and asks Yasmeen to try again. The teacher appreciates the child’s effort every time, irrespective of whether the ball goes into the basket or not. By doing so, the teacher makes the children realise the importance of enjoying the process of trying and doing.
