TOI Workshop on Fun with Words

A workshop on ‘Fun with Words’ was conducted on Thursday 11th May 2017, in Smart Wonders School, Sector 71, Mohali by  Mrs. Amrita Bains on behalf  of  Times of India. The workshop highlighted the rapid changes happening in the acquisition of English language skills. The students were acquainted with the importance of the Dictionary and Thesaurus. They were motivated to enhance their vocabulary with a constant drill of spellings, pronunciation and brain storming with word games. A few word games like jumbled words, bomb burst, cross words, word power, scrabble, tongue twister etc. were played with the students. The students participated whole heartedly in these games to exhibit their language proficiency. The students were also invited to invent their own word games.  The workshop ended on a positive note with the students of Class 4 & 5 watching a video stressing the relevance of confidence, positivity and a constructive approach towards life. Speaking on the occasion Principal Mrs Anu Dhingra appreciated the student participation and laid stress on conducting more of such workshops for the students in the future.
