2nd std

Monster Reader

50 e-books, the equivalent of 2 to 3 English textbooks, are done. Each e-book is followed by comprehension e-sheets. An actual e-book and comprehension question e-sheet is shown here.

Children do not have to memorize these e-books. The focus of this activity is on fluent reading and comprehension skills. They are encouraged to refer to the book, just as in competitive English exams like TOEFL when they do the comprehension exercises. Children are not tutored beforehand with these questions. They get to see the questions only when they answer the e-sheets!

The actual e-sheets done by children are a lot more sophisticated in their layout and are hosted on the school’s classwork and homework e-learning portals.
