Pratham Books Champion : Cherry Agarwal and Sunit Ubhi

Session conducted on : 6th September
Number of kids : 40
Number of sessions : 1
Language the session was conducted in : English

Greetings from Sarswati Modern School. Sunit and I are Teach For India Fellow and first timers as Pratham Book Champions. I cannot express the joy that surrounded our class when they heard Takloo the salt seller. The story mechanism was such that students had begun making text to self connections and delved deeper while they inferenced that their parents have been entrepreneurs all their life just like Takloo. 

The read aloud not only catered to the auditory students but amply reflected the needs of kinesthetic students. The session saw students learning different values through a think-pair-share activity. 

The read aloud session made use of character flashcards and was followed by intense student interviews where students celebrated International Literacy Day or what has become 'education' day in their terms. The class held the apt attention of 40 kids who got immersed in Takloo's story.

Thank you Cherry and Sunit for spreading the joy of reading!

In its third edition of the 'One Day - One Story' campaign, Pratham Books was joined by 1300+ storytellers who conducted 1500+ storytelling sessions. More than a 1000 steps towards a 'Reading India'!

What started as a small step by Pratham Books to spread the joy of reading has become a movement. In 2012, Pratham Books initiated the One Day-One Story initiative on the occasion of International Literacy Day . We will be sharing the stories of all our volunteer storytellers (Pratham Books Champions) through our blog.
