“There are many little ways to enlarge your world. Love of books is the best of all.”

Every year we organise a ’Book Week’ to enhance the literary skills of our students and inculcate good reading habits in them. This year the school celebrated a virtual Book Week from 4th May to 8th May 2020. The aim was to encourage students to become avid readers. Various interesting activities, related to books and reading were organised throughout the week. The students discovered their ’innate powers’, expressed their appreciation for the plant world through a fun worksheet, presented a ‘Show and Tell’, wrote stories in their own words and made comic strips on the books prescribed for them. Puppet show links were also shared with the students and an interesting online storytelling session was organized with famous writer and educationist Ms Sangita Kanjilal. The Book Week was a thumping success with students participating wholeheartedly in all the activities organized for them.

"Story telling session by Ms.Sangita Kanjilal on 08 May 2020" 
 

'We would be nothing without our stories'

It was a beautiful ending to the successful book week event which was held from 4th May to 8th May. On 8th May, a story telling session was held by Ms Sangita Kanjilal. The Google meet invite was sent to every child. Clear guidelines were given about online etiquettes and the students were allowed to comment in the chat box during the session.

Ms Sangita commenced the session with a Story from Bengal, to everybody’s surprise...kids who did not know the customs and culture of Bengal could understand the story, showing successfully that a good story is not bound by regions. 

The second story was an African folktale, which engrossed and engaged the children, introducing them to a far away land. In the end Ms Sangita took up questions of the students. Telling them about morals, journey of a writer, how a book is published, some anecdotes while writing a specific story etc. Overall the session was extremely interesting and fruitful. A great way to end the Book Week.

Reading is known to be a timeless form of entertainment and information. Books have the power to ignite our imagination, arouse curiosity and open our mind to new possibilities. We acknowledge the importance of reading by celebrating the ‘Book Week’. This year, the Book Week is being celebrated between 04 to 08 May,2020 and a veritable treasure trove of activities have been planned for all the students. Each class had a choice of two activities.

Malgudi Days’ is one of India’s classics and children of CLASS VI were asked to read it, describe some of their favourite episodes and also illustrate these.

They were also asked to create an Ode to any one member of their family, with some guidelines supplied for their help.

Students of CLASS VII listened to the story, Wingless, narrated by the author, Paro Anand. They then rewrote the story, added a title of their own and added a picture. They could also narrate the story and create a short video of it.

 Some of the students wrote  a Bio poem on any character of the poem. (A bio poem is a poem that is written to describe a person, usually a fictional character)

Class VIII students were also asked to read some of Robin Sharma’s writings and interpret the relevance using three parameters, to relate these insights to their own lives. They also had the option of creating an Acrostic using the name of any character from these books.

These activities were designed by Sr. Librarian , Ms. Alka Bansal  ma’am and her team, to bring the books alive and make the reading enjoyable.
