‘The more that you read the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you will go’. The importance of reading cannot be underestimated, as reading stretches the child’s mind and introduces him/her to the world of wonder that is literature. Presidium Sonipat realizes how important it is to introduce a world full of imagination and creativity to students. An Intra-Class Story Reading Competition was organized for students of grades 1 to 3 to enhance their reading and imagination skills. The stories were full of suspense, entertainment and information and they were filled with a
new curiosity. The students read out their stories with clear articulation, correct accentuation and voice modulation. The competition was not only intended to encourage reading for pleasure in children but also to give a competitive spur to reluctant readers. Through the reading students showed the perfect blend of letters and sounds. This competition truly inspired students to read more.
