GLORIOUS culmination of 2015
Wonderoom welcomes 2016, Full of things that have never been
To ensure that our young mind can stay stimulated, our regular programs feature Reading, storytelling, drama and more. This month marked the ending of the year filled with activities and a new beginning to our Library program with passion!
Christmas came with extended celebrations in Wonderoom
A pre-christmas bash was organized with a Storytelling session about the relevance and the story behind Christmas festival, children performed a brief ‘skit’ on the importance of love in our lives. The evening was celebrated with Christmas carols, music and dance.
Beautification and Christmas décor was taken up by Wonderoom Kids through multiple Arts and Craft activities.
A new platform called ‘I Wonder’ was launched during the main Christmas celebrations on 24th December 2015. The basic idea of 'I Wonder' is to provide children an open platform where they can express themselves through various performing arts, like: Story-drama, Rhythm, Poem Recitation, Clowning, Dance, Singing, Acrobatic and Sound Collage etc.
During the Christmas event, I Wonder performances were anchored by our young members and all the productions were originally created by children.
Two workshops on Pottery and Origami were conducted. Children not only enjoyed these workshops but were also entertained by the comical ways of our clowns and playful Santa during the event. We were delighted to see the talent and skills of our participants.
Other Activities and Achievements
School and Ngo visits
We invited other agencies serving children such as NGO’s, schools to access our library and other resources. Children from Sharifaan NGO enjoyed their day long visit to Wonderoom. Among other activities, an animated film was shown to children followed by a discussion. Children from Inder Public School were attracted to the collection of books.
Learning through Stories
A story time activity was also taken up, which introduces poetry through fun, interactive readings and songs for children. Read Aloud activities help peers to learn from their friends.
Weekend with Parents
To understand and respond to the needs of parents and caregivers, a parents meeting was organized on 2nd weekend during the month. It was an opportunity to engage with parents, receive their feedback, address their concerns and create awareness about the ongoing Wonderoom programmes. Parents looked seemingly satisfied and showed their interest in different learning programmes.
