“Reading is essential for those who seek to rise above the ordinary.” Keeping this in mind Maps aimed at nurturing the next generation of readers and providing them with a joyful experience of learning. Learning to read is about listening and understanding as well as working out. Through hearing stories, children are exposed to a wide range of words. This helps them build their own vocabulary and improve their understanding when they listen, which is vital as they start to read. Our students took active participation in CBSE reading mission program and enjoyed virtual reading activities.
