A stimulating session where children got to engage in word games, make new connections, and enhance their vocabulary

The ninth edition of The Dhaka Lit fest commenced today at the historic premises of Bangla Academy, and the first day was full of interesting and exciting sessions, especially for children. Held at the Nazrul Stage, the fun and interactive session titled “Play with words” was  conducted by Srabanti Datta and Imran Ahmed.

At the session, kids got to play with words through fun games -- the session mainly focused on how literature is not only about reading, it is also about experimenting with words, knowing them and playing with them to enrich one’s vocabulary. Nowadays, children don’t know how to spend their time or play games without gadgets. The whole point of the session was to introduce children to various games where they can explore and play with words, and which can work as a screen detox for them. Even though the internet has come up with many word games, it is always more educational, yet fun if it’s done off  screen.

Following this very concept, the games and wordplay during this session were designed in such a way that young ones can enjoy it, learning something new at the same time. The moderators played games like Anagram and riddles with the little souls at DLF, where they were given one word and asked to come up with a completely new word on their own by rearranging those existing alphabets. When asked about his experience at the DLF, Abrar, one of the youngest boys at the session replied, “I look forward to the DLF every year. I really enjoyed this session as I got to explore the maze of words, attended other exciting sessions and got new books for myself.”
