Recently, the US Embassy’s Book Bus took a trip to Jagriti Academy in Jadibuti, Kathmandu. We kick started our Language and Arts programs with Book Bus readings and read alouds for grade 1 while grades 4-8 will work with local artists in design inspiration workshops that will feed the making of murals as part Rainbow City, our mural arts program. We found so many wonderful stories in the classroom. We asked students to pick an alphabet and list out and illustrate words starting from that letter that are related to them, their family, locality and culture in English, Nepali as well as their mother tongues. Here is a short video compilation of our 3 day adventure.
