Difficult for me, especially, because I am awkward in social situations, I have never been 100% comfortable with children, and I don't know much about the culture or language of the Sri Lankan families whose children make up the entirety of the class.
... I think I'm doing better with the older kids (who want to talk) than the younger ones (who mostly want to be talked to). I get that part of the purpose for this Sunday School is to give some cultural continuity to the younger generation, but I know I can contribute.

Along those lines, the stories from the Dhammapada commentaries may also be worth a look.
