From the Principal's Desk: Reinventing Reading Contest

Created on 2014-04-11 09:55 PM

Hi,

Welcome to Blooms’ summer reading 2014.

We are in the process of reinventing the Reading Contest.

The ‘contest’ has to go!

This is primarily because most parents are really into it and whatever positives were there about the ‘competition’ being a driving force to developing the habit of reading is now so passé.

Once again with passion.

Welcome to Blooms’ summer reading 2014 sans the ‘competition’.

This is how we do it from now on.

Step 1. As always there is a recommended list for summer reading 2014. They are mostly books that cater to traditional outlooks and of the classics genre.  They would definitely enrich a Bloom’s life but a Blooms’ summer reading doesn’t have to be restricted to that recommended list. Along with our recommendations, there are also lists of recommended reading from leading bookstores and CBSE itself. Please have a look at them too. You are welcome to choose any 4 books from any of these book lists. Please make sure you read from both English and Malayalam. You are also welcome to think out of the box and make your own choices. But make sure that the books that you choose are not too simple and do not fall way below your child’s vocabulary and comprehension levels.

Step 2: Give the names of the books your child completed to her class teacher when teachers ask for it early in the new academic year. If the teacher is not familiar with a book you may be requested to give it to the teacher for evaluation.

Step 3: Your child will be appreciated for the completed reading and given credit for his work in CCE as soon as teachers finish the process of evaluation which mostly comprises of letting the student talk about it in class.

Step 4: All students who actively get into reading in Summer of 2014 will be appreciated and honored during the academic year 2014-15.  

Some will always be more equal among equals and stand out.

 Please try to do just that.

Happy reading!

Principal
