While many students dread studying the math subject, government schools in Karnataka have come up with an interesting initiative — Nali Kali — to make learning more enjoyable for children.
As a part of the creative learning practice adopted by several schools, a video of students singing and dancing while learning multiplication tables has gone viral on social media, leaving many impressed.
“If only I was taught 3-Table like in this #Kannada school. Not sure about my #math, would have at least got good in #dance by now:),” tweeted a user Vasanthi Hariprakash while sharing the video.

As reported by UNICEF, Nali Kali was developed in 1995 by teachers in Karnataka’s Mysore district as a strategy to adopt creative learning practices to help children retain better and encourage them from attending school.
