REPORT : Evening Story Time @ Adani DAV Public School, Mundra on 24-2-2012

Posted by Suresh Limbachiya on 29/02/2012

EVENING STORY TIME

24-2-2012

Introduction:-

One of the most amazing ways to communicate ideas is through a story. Stories that were told from the resourceful lips of grandmothers enriched the minds of children to be useful contributors to the society in which they lived.

Books are our best friend. Books are our source to converse with the great minds. Books help in the development of language. It is books that teach us to refine our pleasures when young and to recall them with satisfaction, when we are old. Reading always helps us organize our thoughts. In today’s fast life we have lost touch with the wonderful worlds of books. (Thanks to the onslaught of T.V. and Computers)

Books also had their roles in refining character and remolding the goals of ever progressive human beings in their unending journey as they traverse though the sands of time.

The school is proud of its rich and varied reading habits. The tradition which is rich needs to be enriched further. To promote reading habits that will enliven and enlighten everyone, the school organizes Evening Story Time.

Evening Story Time was held in Adani DAV Public School on 24-2-2012 between 6 p.m to 7.15 p.m. It was a successful event.

 Objective:

To inculcate the habit of reading books among children and to revive the rich tradition of story telling at home.

 Report:-

The parents along with their children came to school in the evening wearing casual dresses. The programme was from 6.00 pm to 7 pm in the school premises. Books read out to students by some enthusiastic teachers. The children relished this food to the ears with hot chocolate. Parents were encouraged to continue this wonderful transmission of knowledge at their home. The school will follow up this spark ignited in the young minds by issuing quality books and discussing about them with children.

Class: 5th

The reasons class 5th was chosen:

  • This was the right age to begin the habit of reading. The parents can read stories to the children and the children themselves can read stories every night.
  • Availability of books in the library – the library at present can cater to the needs of the students from the above standards.
  • The class V has a lesson in their Social Science text book encouraging them to read stories..

 Teachers Responsible for Organizing the Event

  1. Suresh Limbachiya            Librarian
  2. Seby T.                                         Teacher
  3. Parimal Parmar                     Teacher                

 Arrangement:-

  • Different committees of teachers were formed. Each committee was given a responsibility.
  • Light at four different sports were organized. All the locations were separate from one another yet easily reached by the students.
  • Hot chocolate is served to children after the story reading session.
  • 6 story readers were kept ready. They all had books with them with well selected stories which they were to read during the sessions. 
  • The groups sat on durries. The readers were free to use a chair if needed.

Time table:-

  • A proper time table was prepared for all the teachers’ readers.
  • The readers were changed after every 30 minutes.

Reading Out to Pet Activity 2011 @ Adani DAV Public School, Mundra – Kutch

Posted by Suresh Limbachiya on 26/11/2011

Report
READING OUT TO PET

This activity is designed to allow kids the chance to read to a non-judgmental listener, one who will accept the story exactly as they read it. For many children, this allows them a rare chance to experience stress free reading. Once they are in this situation, children find themselves relaxing and having fun while reading. They come to think of themselves as good readers which help in building their self-esteem and make them eager to read. And they read and read which improves their reading skill. All of these elements work together to increase a child’s motivation to read, which is an essential elements in becoming a successful a reader through “Reading out to Pet”

On 21-11-2011 to 24-11-2011 students of class 1 (All four sections) brought soft toys (Teddy bears, Babies, Lion, etc.) from their homes. The students were led to their various venues like multipurpose hall, school garden, Science Park etc.

There they read their chosen stories to their pet. The students enthusiastically exercised this wonderful habit of reading. They also felt confident and privileged to read to somebody without fear.

Following were the books they chose to read them:-

1. Books written by Dr. Seuss.

2. Read with Barbie’s series by Euro Kids Publications

3. Little workmate series by Lady Bird Publications.

4. Key words with Lady Bird Publications

5. Read it yourself by Vikas Publishing House

This activity was enjoyed by the students. We acknowledge gratefully the support extended by the pre-primary co-ordinator Mrs. Anagha shinde, the class teachers, assistant teachers and the principal Mr. K. J. Jose.

Following table shows the schedule of this activity.

Book Club (2010-2011)

Posted by Suresh Limbachiya on 25/11/2010


BOOK CLUB  2010-2011

To develop the Reading habit among students; every year we conduct various activities like “reading to your pet”, “pyjama story time”, “book exhibitions” etc. We have established a “Book Club” to encourage children to read. Children get a list of books published by Scholastic publishers. Children and parents will mark the book(s) of their choice and place their orders for the same. Since it is their own choice, children love to read them and learn to value these books. You can help in their selection by discussing and explaining them what those books contain. If would be a good idea to read along with your child.

Scholastic Publishers specialize in children’s literature. Books published by them are well-designed in terms of content and age specific material; the print quality also is acclaimed world wide, and they do not sell through regular channels. In big cities they put up their own stalls in schools. As Mundra happens to be slightly off way, they will not be able to put their stall here. However, looking at our orders we may be able to convince them to do the same later. They will send the books in individual packets to children.

Team Work by Library Committee 

Posted by Suresh Limbachiya on 30/04/2010

You have a right to perform your prescribed duty, but you are not entitled to the fruits of achievement, Never consider yourself the cause of the results of your activities, and never be attached to not doing your duty.
 

                        All should have a goal. But pursuing the goal doggedly and achieving it is more important than mere setting of a goal. The library committee works to achieve the end with the spirit of ‘nishkama karma yoga.’ The committee does not wish to corner glory out the various activities it organizes. The events are held just because they can be held and it is our duty to hold them. Therefore various activities are organized in school by the committee

 In academic session 2009-2010 we were organized following:- 

(1)          Pyjama Story Time:  Pyjama Story Time was held in the school on 1-10-2009. The aim of the event was to encourage reading an develop love for books. The parents along with their children came to school in the evening wearing pyjama. The stories were read out to students by some enthusiastic teachers. The children relished this food to the ears with popcorn and hot chocolate.

(2)          Book Club: Scholastic Publishers specialize in children’s literature. Books published by them are well-designed in terms of content and age specific material. The print quality also is acclaimed world wide, and they do not sell through regular channels. In big cities they put up their own stalls in schools 

 

(3)          Book fair: The Scholastic Book Fair was organized on 11-11-2009 to 13-11-2009 by Library Committee in the multi-purpose hall. The aim was to provide exciting opportunities for students, teachers and parents to acquaint themselves with some of the latest books. In book fair, books were displayed according to age group and genre

 (4)          DEAR Time: Dear Time (Drop Everything and Read) was also organized by the library committee. It was not so-new movement. Yet an explanation as how it worked would do no harm. At any given time d the teacher said “Drop Everything and Read” and the students did just that.

Pre Plan for academic session 2010-2011

 (1)         New Reference Section    A new reference section in library for class 11th  and 12th was created this year. Students of the classes could spend their free time in browsing through the pages of various reference books of their interest without taking away the books from the library. A feasible study environment was provided for this purpose with suitable furniture and creation of a special section for books.

 (2)         Cartography Quiz  We plan to conduct Cartography Quiz for class VIII to X in the coming year too with the help of Indian National Cartography Association and Indian Space Research Organization. We are also looking forward to conduct various other activities in the coming months after the summer vacation.

 All the activities taking place in the school become great successes due to the active and diligent participation of the Library Committee. Our committee members Mr. Sebastian T.V. and   Mr. Parimal Parmar are very helpful and enthusiastic for conducting various activities in school library. Their keen interest and timely and wise suggestions have made the library a better place to be in and I take this opportunity to extent my gratitude to them and wish them to continue to contribute to the creative growth of Library.

 Permanent Members of Library Committee :

Book Club

Posted by Suresh Limbachiya on 22/01/2010

                       To develop the Reading habit among students; every year we conduct various activities like “reading to your pet”, “pyjama story time”, “book exhibitions” etc. We have established a “Book Club” to encourage children to read. Children get a list of books published by Scholastic publishers. Children and parents will mark the book(s) of their choice and place their orders for the same. Since it is their own choice, children love to read them and learn to value these books. You can help in their selection by discussing and explaining them what those books contain. Scholastic Publishers specialize in children’s literature. Books published by them are well-designed in terms of content and age specific material; the print quality also is acclaimed world wide, and they do not sell through regular channels. In big cities they put up their own stalls in schools. As Mundra happens to be slightly off way, they will not be able to put their stall here. However, looking at our orders we may be able to convince them to do the same later. They will send the books in individual packets to children.

D.E.A.R Time

Posted by Suresh Limbachiya on 22/01/2010

Drop Everything and Read(D.E.A.R) is a not-so-new movement. Yet an explanation as how it works will do no harm. At any given time during the day, the teacher will say “Drop Everything and Read” and the students do just that. They drop whatever they are working on, pick up their favorite book, curl up in the book corner and just read for a given amount of time. This can be easily replicated at home. The parents or the guardians can take the place of a teacher.

The objective of this activity is to cultivate and encourage the children to love and read books. It also aims at reviving the great Indian tradition of story telling and the consequent discussion on it. The habit of reading together in the family helps children gather knowledge and improve their language. It also develops the habit of reading among them. Reading good books moulds the character of the readers and makes them better human beings. Most importantly, it also amounts to quality family time.

DEAR gives children the opportunity to read books of their own choice. So much of what we do in school involved books and reading material selected by the librarian. DEAR time lets children pick whatever reading material they want to just enjoy. DEAR allows children to see that reading for fun and pleasure is a valuable experience. If the parents or guardians set aside time for it, it must be a valuable way to spend some time. DEAR can help develop better writing skills. The more children read, the more they are exposed to the written word and that will lead to better reading and writing skills

Pyjama Story Time

Posted by Suresh Limbachiya on 22/01/2010

One of the most amazing ways to communicate ideas is through a story. Stories those were told from the resourceful lips of grandmothers enriched their children to be useful contributors to history and the society in which they lived. Books also had their roles in refining character and remolding goal of ever progressive human being in their unending journey as they traversed through the sands of time.

The school is proud of its rich and varied reading habit. The tradition which is rich needs to be enriched further. To promote reading habit that will enliven and enlighten every one the school organizes Pyjama Story Time. The parents along with their children come to the school in the evening wearing pyjamas. Stories are either told or read out to students which they relish with popcorn, chocolates or drinks. Parents are encouraged to continue this wonderful transmission of knowledge at their home. The school follows it up by issuing quality books and discussing about them with children.
