    Word Power:Enriching Vocabulary

    Class –IV

    J.K. Rowling's character Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows said, 'Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. '

    This was a fantastic and fun filled activity that enhanced the vocabulary of the students.  They enjoyed playing ‘Hangman’, which was an interactive word game, in which they had to guess the word in 10 chances. They also exhibited their enhanced vocabulary in the form of dictionaries. Children blended their creativity with their word power and made amazing dictionaries.  They learned many news words in a play way method. The activity resulted in richer vocabulary of the students.
