Phonemic Awareness, Fluency and Vocabulary were the core areas of reading instruction that were focused on during the Literary Hour. The aim of the activity was to make the young ones exercise their imagination, practice their communication skills, and learn the subtleties of spoken language in dramatic play.
Teachers and students enthusiastically enacted stories by creating a literary rich atmosphere filled with joy and delight. The little eyes glittered with curiosity to know and learn more and more. The poetry session made the tiny tots shake, move, tap and hop with resounded glee.
