Then children went near the Guava tree after washing hands. Jayashree didi had arranged mats to sit for children. While the children ate, Taksh did not eat mousami so the shadow teacher requested jayshree didi if he can get one apple.

Once plate washing was done, Vineet bhaiya asked children to pick up both the tubes together and throw water in the nearby plants.

Jayashree didi – aaj hum kapde par painting karenge. Apko pata hai use kya bolte hain?

Children – kapada painting/paper pe kapada pe painting karna/chote chote kapade rakh kar painting karen.

Then he wrote a few lines “tamatar gol, tamatar lal, kha kar ho gaye mote gaal. And drew a tomato under these lines. On the other hand, mamta didi asked children what they had made on cloth. There were two boards in class on the other board bhaiya wrote “ta” and “tub” in hindi in large letters. After that he came and wrote names of children on their cloth they had painted. As and when children finished they went to wash their hands, Jayashree didi stood and said “jo jo ka ho gaya hai vo brush ko is dubabbe mai rakhenge or gadde par beth kar wait karenge”. There was a corner in a class where there were cushions; children went there after finishing their work. While others read in the reading corner, two children went near the board and looked at a drawing of “tamatar” and talked “tamatar hai, haan ye tamatar hai”. 

Vineet bhaiya- jinka kaam ho gaya hai,  vo didi ki madat karenge wind up karne mai. He drew a big semi circle on the floor and asked children “come on friends, find your place. 

When children sat on the floor they chanted “OM”. 

Vineet bhaiya – accha aaj apne khana kha kar kis mai bartan dhoye the. 

Children – tub mai. 

Vineet Bhaiya – haan “ta’ se “tub mai”. Jab apne khana khaya to didi ne tamatar dala tha. 

Children – haan dala tha. 

Vineet bhaiya – haan “ta” se tamatar and read the sentence ‘tamatar gol tamatar … by putting a finger on each word and children repeated. Kya aap sab khayenge tamatar. Aap sabka gal bhi mote mote ho jayenge. And brought tamatar and cut in front of children and gave each child a piece of it to eat. Then he again read “tamatar gol” kya tamatar gol tha. 

Children – haan tha. 

Vineet bhaiya – kya tamatar lal tha. 

Children – haan tha 

Vineet bhaiya – When children ate tomato, he asked kaisa tha tamatar, kya vo metha tha, khatta tha, namkeen tha kaisa tha. 

Children – achha tha, khatta tha. 

Vineet bhaiya – acha kya hum or gana bana sakte hain? And asked children to say anything related to tamatar. Than children started saying line which Vineet bhaiya wrote on board like:-

  • “bade rasile tamatar”. 
  • “jisne khaya kachacha tamatar, uska peet ho gaya gol”. 
  • Tamatar peela tamatar lal

Then Vinit bhaiya picked tamatar and showed dekho tamatar thoda peela bhi hai. 

  • Tamatar kha kar dekha bada kachacha. 

Vineet bhaiya – kya hum isse kachacha ke alwa rasila kar de? He showed tamatar and pressed it to show juice of tomato. And asked dekho ye rasila hai to kachacha ke alawa rasila kar de.

Children – haan 

Vineet bhaiya – acha ab hum in sab line se gaana banate hain. He rearranged lines to make a song. And said “chalo hamara gaana teyar ho gaya”

Children – “wow”. 

Song- 

“tamatar khao, tamatar khao, bade rasile tamatar laal. Tamatar peela tamatar laal, tamatar gol tamatar laal, khaakar ho gaye mote gaal. Jisne khaya kachacha tamatar uska pet ho gaya gol”. 

After the song, Vineet said “tub sun kar apne man mai kya ata hai” and asked each child by taking names. 

Children – bus/tamatar/gadi/nahana/paani/tummy/kapde/dhona/shatkon. 

Some children did not listen properly, so Vineet bhaiya said, ”jin bachhon ka man nahi wo corner pe ja ke shanti laye or wapas aa jaye. 

When each child’s turn was done, he said “ab batao “ta” ko sun kar aap sabke man mai kya ata hai”. 

Children – teacher/tub/tamatar/t shirt/tuk tuk/tar tar/tap tap/taang/tan tan. 

At the end they all repeated all the words together. Then Vineet bhaiya told “chalo ab ring a ring a roses khelte hain sab”.
