Stories are an integral part of children’s lives. They love to hear stories over and over again. Not only do they have favourite stories but also they have favourite characters from those stories, and have their own reasons for choosing them as their favourites.

Keeping the same in mind, MRIS-21C, Faridabad, organized a competition ‘A Strong Character’ for the children of KG and a Show and Tell Competition-‘The Most Amazing Animal’ for the children of Nursery. The children came dressed up as their favourite characters, carrying props and books to support their choice. It was delightful to hear from them the reasons behind choosing one as their favourite. It was heartening to watch the children speak with poise and confidence. Such activities go a long way in helping them shed their inhibition and honing their spoken skills.
