STORY TELLING

India Today - - SIMPLY PUNJABI - ANIL DAYAL by Puja Raina

An in­ter­est­ing story be­comes so much more when it is nar­rated well. The story telling classes at the One Up li­brary are all about mak­ing sto­ries come alive with el­e­ments of dance, mu­sic and drama thrown in. The place is an ini­tia­tive by Dal­bit Kaur Madan, who aims to pop­u­larise read­ing as a pre­ferred ac­tiv­ity amongst chil­dren in the city. At­tempt­ing to in­cul­cate a strong read­ing habit in chil­dren, they have come up with in­no­va­tive ideas like read­ing aloud ses­sions and the­atri­cal per­for­mances. In­ter­ac­tive ses­sions with au­thors are de­signed to en­cour­age young chil­dren to de­velop their com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills through a wide va­ri­ety of child-cen­tered ac­tiv­i­ties that de­velop their lan­guage. These ac­tiv­i­ties also help de­velop cog­ni­tive growth through oral pre­sen­ta­tion, dra­matic play and in­tro­duc­tion to phonol­ogy (a pre­req­ui­site for learn­ing to read).
