In grade Nursery, while exploring the unit of inquiry under the theme ‘How we express ourselves’, we invited a mystery reader to read stories to our young learners. Our learners enjoyed, and actively participated when the mystery reader prompted them to think and respond to her questions. This learning engagement helped the learners understand different ways of expressing stories.

Our Mystery reader Ms. Brinda narrated ‘The pig in the pond’, Ms. Swapna.S narrated ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ and Ms.Pragati Atmakuru narrated ‘The Lion and The Mouse’ using different resources. It was a joyful experience for the students as they reflected on their understanding creatively. Learners were principled and curious during the story sessions. They sat through the sessions with enthusiasm and enhanced their communication as well as social skills.
