Literature enriches a student’s life by offering a window into diverse cultures, emotions, and human experiences, and broadening perspectives. It cultivates critical thinking, enhances language skills, and nurtures creativity. On 9 October 2023, facilitators of grades 1 and 2 enhanced literary understanding and creativity among young learners by incorporating role play to bring a moral story to life. The role play on safety measures for children when alone at home provided a vivid and immersive learning experience. By bringing this critical scenario to life, it enhanced students’ understanding of essential values such as responsibility, caution, and the importance of a safe environment.
