For International Literacy Day (8th September), we had a dream - we wished that 100 people would volunteer to conduct storytelling sessions across the country. We ended up finding more than 250 champions to conduct storytelling sessions across the country. We will be sharing the stories of all our champions through our blog.
Sujata Sundaresan sent us the following story.
Storytelling session conducted at MMI Pre-School Centre, Delhi on 10th September 2012
It was a privilege and a pleasure to have teamed up with Pratham Books in their initiative of 1 day, 1 book, 100 story telling sessions of the story book “Susheela’s Kolam” on the occasion of International Literacy Day.
The Story was narrated to all the 145 children of the Pre-School in the age group of 18months to 4years. Children enjoyed the story and like Susheela gave flight to their imagination by making their own kolams
which were later displayed so that the parents also got an opportunity to see them.
The Story session was also conducted for our outreach programme-‘Shiksha’. The story was narrated in Hindi. Children drew beautiful Kolams.
I would like to congratulate Pratham Books on such a brilliant initiative and we are proud to have been a part of this endeavour.
Thank you Modern Monterssori International Pre-school Centre for spreading the joy of reading and a big thank you to Sujata for sending us this story!
