Under the  'One Day - One Story' programme ,the following sessions sessions were taken by me

1. At my residence at Vikaspuri , New Delhi on Sunday, on 7.9.14 ,

2. With class III kids (2 Sections) with 40 children per section at Delhi Public School Rohini on Monday, 8.9.14

3.With class III kids (2 Sections) with 40 children per section at Delhi Public School Rohini on Wednesday, 10.9.14

It was a great experience. With the help of cut outs, voice modulation, enactment and the ppt presentation, the story of Takloo was shared with the children. After the session, the children were asked to read and enact the story which they thoroughly enjoyed. Children were also asked to draw pictures of Takloo .

The story was really liked by the children. It was a great feeling to be a part of this programme.


Thank you Usha for spreading the joy of reading!
