‘The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe’.
For some kids, reading isn’t hard, but it isn’t interesting either. It may be that they just haven’t found the right reading material that motivates them.
‘Know Your Author’ that featured in the month of September was a way to introduce our children to few Indian authors and their writing skills. These authors have transported our imagination to a different world altogether with their magical tales and whimsical characters. Their writings are a result of their personal experiences which fuel and charge the imagination of the young minds and inculcate a fondness for reading.
‘Know Your Author’ was also an entertaining way to recharge students’ life-long interest in reading particularly for new and reluctant readers. The September initiative ’Know your author had immensely fueled the young minds to venture into the realm of ‘Kathalaya – Stories Unlimited’ the theme of ‘Magnificent Monday’ organized on 28th of September, 2020.
Students were given an option to participate in any ONE of the following events.
1. Storytelling with accessories (Puppets, Pictures, Placards, Costumes etc)
2. Narration of real life experiences
3, Travelogue (A talk with illustrations about any place visited by you)
The stories narrated by our students came alive with myriad hues of puppets and pictures. They transported us to exotic places, made our hearts laugh out loud with their rib tickling jokes and made us realize that life is beautiful with their awe inspiring narrations and real life experiences.
Oh! Horizonites, you never fail to surprise us.
