PRESIDIANS ENRICH THEIR VOCABULARY WITH FUN ACTIVITY
Self-expression is a vital part of understanding anything and enjoying it to the fullest. We, at Presidium, strongly believe in freedom of expression. To give voice to the expression, an activity WHO AM I? related to the character description was conducted in grade 3, wherein the students were shown the pictures of their favorite characters and described them by using different describing words. Our confident Presidians wrote interesting sentences about their favorite characters as well. Through this fun activity, students developed a rich understanding of characters through imagination and interaction. Also, the students enrich their vocabulary being shared in groups by their friends.
