Atta and shapes
Samarth, with his mom and brother, were rolling atta dough into small pieces. Together, they crafted various shapes like fish, mountains, and boats, arranging them on a plate. As they created, Samarth's mother pointed to each shape and engaged him asking questions, "Ye kya banaya hai? (What is this shape?)" and "Kaha dekha hai apne ye? (Where have you seen them?)." Samarth tried to answer his mother's questions, and whenever he found himself unsure, his mother guided and taught him.
“Maine aise atta se seekhane ka tareeka dost ke calls se suna tha. Isse bache jaldi sikh jate hai aur unko maja bhi ata hai.” (I learned to teach using atta dough through Dost calls. This technique helps the children learn quickly, making the learning enjoyable.) said the mother.
