In the show and tell activity which was done on Tuesday, 25th July 2023 the children have to bring their favourite object from their home and talk about it. Some of them had come prepared with their favourite toy or dress or book, or any favourite item. Some had been laid back and hence the teachers helped them to prepare themselves on the spot. Whatever the case we could see them coming out of their shells and saying something about their favourite object. Nonetheless, this activity does help them to build confidence and helps children develop effective communication skills.

D.E.A.R. – LIBRARY DAY – 13th July 2023
D.E.A.R. means Drop Everything And Read. We celebrate this week as the Library week and help children to inculcate the love for books. Some thoughts from our team for the love for books:
A good book is an event in my life.
The world belongs to those who read.
That’s the tihing about books. They let you travel without moving your feet.
A write only begins a book but the reader finishes it.
A good book is an event in life.
A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies.
Reading brings us unknown friends.
Think before you speak. Read before you think.
Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.
A book is a gift you can open againa nd again.
Books are uniquely portable magic.
I do believe something magical can happen when you read a good book.
Reading is dreaming with open eyes.
So please, go and throw all your gadgets and install a bookshelf in its place.
Reading is to mind what exercise is to body.
A room without books is like a bosy without a soul.
