  1. I really liked this lesson and the video as well. By the way, what is the name of the song? And the Singer´s name? I liked it a lot. Thank you!

    1. Hi Cari,
      Thanks very much for commenting and for the kind words. I don’t know the song, you might be able to find the name of it on the Internet.
      All the best,
      Kieran

  2. We’re often caught up in the dynamics of ensuring our teaching is as effective as possible. BUT we’re part of a team of educators and the reduced classroom situation is something unique at least, and probably a bit special. Great to be reminded about what’s important.Nothing to do with the fact that I’m a crazy working mum in my spare time…

    Keep up the good work

  7. it was such a great lesson . i plan to do it in my kids batch as well. so that the such values like dignity of labour, senstivity,and many more can be instilled in them.

  8. I like the bit I’m able to see, but for some reason all three of the videos I’ve tried to watch stopped after less than a minute. Am I the only one that is having this problem? I can watch other videos on youtube without any problem, so I don’t understand where the problem is. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    1. Hi Adam,
      I’ve watched all the films on Chrome with no problem. I think you might like to watch it on another browser.
      All the best,
      Kieran
