The Drawing Competition
One day, Miss. Dorothy made an announcement in the classroom. Children, we are going to have a drawing competition tomorrow. Each one of you will have to select a shape. And you will have to draw things of that shape. Whoever draws the best, will win a prize. All the children were very excited. I’m going to draw things that are square. And I’m going to draw things that are rectangles. The things I draw will be ovals! ChuChu was very confused. She wondered which shape she should choose. Chiku’s going to draw square things. Chika’s going to draw rectangular ones. And Cussly’s drawing will have ovals. Which shape should I choose? When ChuChu went home, she told her mother about the drawing competition. Mom, there’s a drawing competition tomorrow. I have to draw things that are a certain shape. Which shape should I choose? ChuChu’s mother was very helpful. She helped ChuChu problem solve. ChuChu, why don’t you take a look around and see what shapes you notice in the world around you? Then you can start drawing whatever you like best. Good idea, Mom So ChuChu started to look around. The TV is a rectangle. The rug is a square. The watermelon on the table is round. I know what I’ll draw.
I’ll draw a round watermelon! ChuChu, can you think of other things that are round and interesting to look at? Come on! Put on your thinking cap and try to figure out what they are. You can draw some of them. ChuChu thought about it and soon many round things came to mind. The sun is round! The moon is round. Cakes and pizzas are round too. The wheels on the school bus and Daddy’s car are round too. A baby’s face is nice and round. The balloons we love to play with and the ice-cream scoops we love to eat are round too. ChuChu decided to draw some of these things for the drawing competition. Then, ChuChu’s mother had another idea for her. ChuChu, instead of drawing the round things by themselves why don’t you draw a picture that has a number of the round things in it? Huh? A picture that has many round things? Yes, ChuChu! Tell me! Where would you see a round cake, round balloons, a round pizza, a happy round faced baby and round scoops of delicious ice cream? I know! At a birthday party! The next day at the drawing competition ChuChu drew a picture of a birthday party that had many round things. Round balloons! A round birthday cake! Round scoops of ice cream! Round wheels on a tricycle! A baby with a happy round face! A round pizza for everyone to share! And a round sun that’s shining in the sky! Miss. Dorothy and the judges were very impressed with ChuChu’s drawing.
All of you have drawn pictures of things that are the shapes you have chosen. And you have drawn them very nicely. But ChuChu has put all her round shaped things in a birthday party scene! Miss. Dorothy then announced the winner. Children, you have all drawn beautifully. But ChuChu has used her imagination and put all the round things she chose in a birthday party scene. And so the judges have decided to give ChuChu the prize. Well done, ChuChu. Thank you! ChuChu’s prize turned out to be a box of round chocolates. Mom, I’m going to share my prize with you. After all, it was you who helped me think and use my imagination. ChuChu was happy to share the chocolates with her mother. And she felt lucky that her mother had taught her how to use her imagination.

Learns To Ride A Bike
Chika was a very timid boy. He was afraid to try new things. His sister Chiku always encouraged Chika. But he was too scared to try anything new. Come on, Chika! Try roller skating ! It’ll be fun! No thanks, Chiku. Chika would just stand quietly by himself while the other kids played and had fun. Yeah… Yeah One day, Chiku and the other kids were riding bikes. They wanted Chika to join them. Come on Chika, we are all riding bikes Please join us. Come on, Chika. It’s easy. Uh… No. I don’t want to. ChaCha knew that he was afraid. So he invited him to join him on his bike. Chika, why don’t you sit with me on my bike? You don’t have to pedal and you’ll still be able to ride with us. Huh? Sit on your bike? Chika liked the idea of joining in without having to ride his own bike. So he hopped on the back of ChaCha’s bike All the kids carefully rode down the street. Chika was surprised to see how well ChaCha could ride. ChaCha, you’re great on a bike! And so are ChuChu and Chiku. I wish I could ride one too. But I’m just too scared. When ChaCha was little, he used to be afraid too, Chika.
But then he tried it, and as he learned he forgot all of his fears and really had fun. Come on! Why don’t we show you how to ride? ChuChu and the rest of the kids then showed Chika how to ride a bike on the street. First, you always have to look ahead while riding, Chika. And if you see someone in the way, You ring your bell like this! That way the person ahead knows you’re coming and can make room. Wow! You also shouldn’t ride too fast. Going slow is the safest thing to do. And always make sure not to go outside the bike lane. And if you want to stop, press the brakes Ahan, I see! Chiku took Chika to an empty street. She passed ChaCha’s bike to him and asked Chika to try riding it. Chika, why don’t you try riding this bike? I’m sure you can do it! Huh? Me? Yes, Chika! You! Hmm! Their encouragement made Chika feel like maybe he could learn to ride a bike. To Chika’s great surprise, He realized that he could ride very well.
This is so much fun! ChuChu and the others rode behind him to help him feel more confident. Good work, Chika! You are doing great! In no time, ChaCha found that Chika could even ride his bike alongside a big group of kids. Chika was very happy with himself. I had so much fun riding the bike today. And I don’t think I’m afraid of trying new things anymore. Thanks to you guys! Thank you! And guess what? I plan on joining you every day when you guys ride your bikes! Hooray! From that day forward Chika joined ChuChu and the others whenever they rode their bikes and even when they tried other new things He was no longer afraid of trying something new.
