fREADom BuZz is the official fREADom monthly newsletter. Here’s what we’ve been up to in April 2021!
‘Challenge’ is a strong word, whichever way you look at it. Feeling challenged, facing a challenging situation, wanting to challenge yourself, or loving challenges – each comes with an opportunity to get to know yourself better, to stretch the boundaries of your potential, and to grow and improve. Challenges can be used to our advantage. They are an invite to put our best foot forward and become the best version of ourselves.
Through fREADom, we seek to help young minds fall in love with reading and learning. With content created and curated exclusively to appeal to the sensibilities of young modern learners, we have created a virtual garden where children experience the joy of learning.
READ WITH JOY!
1. fREADom Challenge
Our monthly endeavour to blend imagination, creativity, and learning
Every month, we pick a theme and invite entries from children across the world!
April Theme: ‘Just for Laughs’
Every year the month of April kicks off with jokes and friendly pranks, thanks to April’s Fool Day. Taking the lighthearted mood and hilarity as a cue, we invited children to participate in the April fREADom Challenge Just for Laughs.
March Theme: ‘Nature and You’
The March edition of the Challenge was Nature and You where the participants expressed their appreciation for Mother Nature in various creative ways. Check out the following entry we received from Jane Fiona (UKG).
