Bharathamatha CMI Public School Students Make Own Dictionary

Image by MonikaP for

It is easy to look up a new word in a dictionary and find out its meaning and usage. However, creating a dictionary is a laborious and intellectually challenging exercise. However, the students of Bharathamatha CMI Public School in Palakkad prepared a new dictionary as part of their Communicative English Activity. The dictionary contains all the new words they learnt during the academic year with meanings created from the perspective of children. It also helped instil creativity in children and teachers also helped them to complete the project successfully, according to Lakshmi Sree, Teacher of Bharathamatha CMI Public School. An exhibition of dictionaries created by students was also held in early March in the school premises.
