Once upon a time there lived two friends in a jungle, a tortoise and a rabbit. One day they wanted to take part in a race. They both started running together, but after a while the rabbit sat down to rest and fell asleep under a tree on the half way thinking that he was a fast runner so he could make up with the tortoise the moment he wakes up.
As the tortoise reached the midway he saw the rabbit sleeping under the tree, he halted for few seconds and then kept on going thinking that if he sat down to rest he might loose the race. After some time the rabbit woke up and started running but when he reached the winning point he saw the tortoise had already won the race.
Show the pictures if possible so that you can draw the child's attention towards the story. If this is done regularly the results will be seen in no time, and we will notice the child may be trying to say the story along with us The next step will be to start a sentance and prompt the child to complete it. We will see the child gradually enjoying when he tries to tell you the story by themselves and thus learning the language without really noticing he is learning. Have a try, and tell me your experience.
