At Staford, we believe in giving each subject its due importance. Hindi is our national language and we celebrated the Hindi Saptah this week, with special focus on Hindi in the class activities. This Friday saw a Rhymes Recitation Competition in the pre-primary section. Competition teaches children invaluable lessons about the importance of discipline. To help them be a team player the pre-primary section organized a “Hindi Rhyme Competition” on 12th of September, 2014.
One could sense the enthusiasm of the children in their presentation and what was even more remarkable was the readiness of even those who were sitting among the audience, to come and speak on the mic. Each participatory group introduced themselves and the rhyme they had chosen and presented not just a recitation but an enactment of the rhyme. The use of innovative, artistic and creative props enlivened the enactment and made the whole programme a treat to watch. The children thoroughly enjoyed the recitation and the enactment, and were very much in sync with the thoughts, feeling, rhyme, rhythm and music of words.
Healthy competition helps children bring out their best while encouraging team-work. This recitation competition was successful in giving the children an opportunity to express themselves and demonstrate their skills and talent through the enactment of rhymes with the use of proper actions, facial expressions, gestures, voice modulation and intonation.
The children charmed the teachers with their recitation of different rhymes such as Aloo kachalu , Ek badaa mota sa Bandar, Rasmalai, Sadak, Chanda Gol Gol and Chehra with a lot of zeal and vigour making the characters of each rhyme come alive. Our Respected Principal Ma’am and Aisha Ma’am were invited to adjudge the competition. They appreciated and applauded the performance of the participants, and enjoyed the competition thoroughly.
