My Poetry Session At Rustomjee Cambridge International School

Before I started homeschooling, I went to RCIS for 5 years, and I really loved the school. So when my mom received a call from Tanya mam, the principal, saying she wanted to meet us, I got happy, surprised and puzzled as well. As I didn't know why she was calling us.

When we met her, she informed there was a literary fest in the school and the school was inviting some authors to give sessions on their books. She invited me as well. We decided that I'd conduct a session for the third graders. I felt very happy and a little nervous too, as I hadn't given a session to such a big group of kids.


On 21st March, I woke up with a queer feeling inside me. I had to give the poetry session on my book to around 230 children. I felt kinda nervous. But when I got there and talked to the kids, it all melted away. I recited poems from my book 'My Little World'. Then I invited them to recite the poems, we did a 'word-search' and then I gave them an activity-- "Friends, take a word, think of words that rhyme and relate with your word, and make your own poems."


And within a few minutes, everyone came up with their short poems and recited them. Then at the photo session, all the divisions, A to H came to click photos with me and my book. I felt really happy. Thank you Tanya mam and all the teachers for showing confidence in me.
