The small number of volunteers at the start of caravan posed a problem for all the volunteers to keep track of the kids. But the bright sunny day, made most of the kids confine themselves to indoor activities for a change which made it easier for us volunteers to keep track of the kids and understand them. While doing the activities I noticed a kid who was very adept at building blocks and I saw him skillfully construct a beautiful structure.I also helped a hesitant 2nd grader to finish several jigsaw puzzles and saw him progress slowly but steadily with each puzzle.The story telling stall I noticed had an unexpectedly high number of participants this time with the introduction of the Kannada Pratham books. Lokesh sir (a headstreams staff member) sat with the kids as they read out the stories and was very animated when it was his turn to read.
