She very skillfully made students create a story verbally by adding and sequencing the different words they spoke. She made story writing appear so easy and interesting to the students and insisted that every child can become an author by using his imagination and creativity.
The author created catchy poetic story with some words students had come out with. Students who were very innovative and creative with their thoughts were gifted books authored by Ms. Ilika Ranjan. It was an interesting session and every student went back excited to write a story. Her story weaving with the students not only enriched the vocabulary of the students, but also opened up the children’s minds to new horizons.
