Play and learn is the most effective and modern way of learning. This makes the young children learn faster and understand the basic concepts more easily. This type of learning process differs from the traditional form of teaching and learning with the inclusion of many types of pedagogical approaches. With hands on experiments and activities that help the children explore by themselves the concept related realms gives an opportunity to them to acquire a deep knowledge and understanding of the concepts they are studying.

The Play and learn system makes use of various types of learning aids including a variety of educational toys carefully designed to help the child go through the learning process in an easy and effective manner. Learning a language through activities is a new approach. This calls for very careful application of mind on the part of the educator where he takes the responsibility of creating the right type of educational materials that form the basis for the activity based learning system.

Teaching the language of Tamil to the young children is really a challenging task with other learning options and non-educational devices. With creative and thought provoking learning aids the child can learn the Tamil language and explore the wealth of Tamil knowledge.

Stories In Mother Tongue : Developing imagination in kids with Tamil Stories


The vast universe of imagination can be broadened in a child through the exposure of stories. Either by narration or books, making them involved in stories can benefit them alot. But today's children do not want to read or hear about facts and non-fiction stories, they want to read interesting stories and engaging fiction novels that can relate to them and speak to their hearts directly.  

Role of Stories in Children's Lives

Children's development and growth are substantially assisted by stories. They can form friends with the characters they encounter in the novels they read. It's also vital for kids to learn that books are a valuable source of information and that excellent reading abilities are essential for future success. Reading aids self-esteem, emotional control, language acquisition, and self confidence.

It is scientifically proven that if something is said in our mother tongue, whether a sentence or a story, then it will engage us more easily. Also, reading in one's own mother tongue early in school has also reduced the dropout rates and makes education more engaging, relevant, and pleasant for children. 

While Tamil is one of the oldest languages of this world, it mainly originated in the South Indian subcontinent from Dravidians. As modernization happened, Tamil speaking people resonated in the world and started living in different parts. There are nearly 195,685 people alone in the USA who speak Tamil. As they are now living in a country where their mother tongue is a foreign language, it is scientifically as well as culturally significant to teach it to the upcoming generation.
