Reading in its fullest sense involves weaving together word recognition and comprehension in a fluent manner!
To spark curiosity about reading in our young children, a Picture Reading Competition was recently organized at Presidium, Dwarka 16B. The contest not only helped little Presidians in exploring early reading skills for fun, but also engaged them in a beautiful learning experience. The competition started with the teacher showing a picture to the kids and they were asked to identify what they see in the picture and to think about the information on the chart and what they want to say about it to generate a sentence. Children simply identified what is going on in each picture and found meaning in text and pictures. Children were assessed on their dynamic vocabulary, comprehension and expression. The children were very excited and enjoyed the activity thoroughly. It was wonderful to see how our young readers decoded visual images and made meaning from print.
