We held the reading session of Paplu, the Giant with our Primary students comprising of nearly 200 students .The book was uploaded onto the digital smart board & the voice over from the Radio Mirchi recording played in sync with the visuals. Overall the effect was very effective as we could play the story in English & in Hindi.
The children as well as the teachers applauded this effort.
Thanks for allowing us this opportunity.
Thank you for spreading the joy of reading!
What started as a small step by Pratham Books to spread the joy of reading has become a movement. Last year Pratham Books initiated the One Day-One Story initiative on the occasion of International Literacy Day and we conducted over 250 storytelling sessions. This year we are delighted that over a 1000 sessions are happening across the length and breadth of the country.We will be sharing the stories of all our champions through our blog.
This blog contains stories sent in by all our champions. Browse through the blog for more stories. You can also go through the tags on the right side of the blog to find stories happening in your own city.
