“Reading is to the mind, what exercise is to the body”.
Being able to read and write is the most important skill children gather at this young age. So, it becomes very important to educate the parents about the various teaching strategies and the steps being taken to make reading a fun filled experience and an adventurous journey, as parents and teachers are an equal partners in the holistic development of a child.
To bridge this gap a phonetics workshop was organized for parents. The workshop detailed about why, phonetics is such an important part of reading and writing and how, the beautiful art of reading can be mastered through phonetics. A lot of teaching techniques like Sound Games, Sound Stories, Importance of Phonic Books, Phonic Songs, Sight Words etc was shared with the parents along with a document which could be used as a ready reckoner when they practice these techniques with their children. The workshop was very fruitful and had relevant takeaway for the parents. It was highly appreciated by one and all.
