What is the goal of 100Books initiative?
100Book initiative is based on the belief that "A child who can read well, will do well in life". 100Books initiative aims to develop the habit of reading books and English reading skill in the children.
After reading 100 English books a child would have accomplished the following: (1) developed reading skill (2) to be able to read an age appropriate book independently (3) generated enough interest towards reading next set of 100 books (4) developed a vocabulary of 1000 words (5) to be able to comprehend a book.
What is the need of 100Books initiative in India?
More than 100 million children enrolled in classes 1 to 5 do not read books other than the textbooks and they do not develop basic English reading skill.
What is the structure followed in 100Books?
100Books program uses 100 leveled books based on reading skill. Level 0 is for beginning reader while Level 3 is for an advance reader. The books in the program are chosen so that child can correlate to his/her own day today surrounding. The books are also selected from renowned international authors.
Each book has underlined vocabulary words with definition and a picture affixed at the end of the book. This helps the child develop vocabulary and understand the book.
100Books program uses an App to develop vocabulary and comprehension skills. Each book has a smart vocabulary flashcard set in the app. The app uses several techniques to help learn in a fun and engaging way.
Each book also has a set of flashcards with comprehension questions. After the child has read the book he/she should be able to answer the questions.
Each child maintains a reading log. The child is given a book to read at home. It is encouraged that the child reads the book to his parent and asks them to sign the log.
