Our Story

My Chapter One helps children dive into the world of books and fall in love with reading. It maneuvers kids away from digital entertainment and towards wholesome real-time fun, through reading sessions devoted to iconic books and activities that revolve around them.

My Chapter One handpicks reading instructors who guide kids towards becoming independent readers, and subsequently, more imaginative, empathetic, and academically-inclined individuals. All in all, our company’s goal is to create a world of little readers, bright-eyed at the prospect of a new book.

Ranjani Indrajith and Madhumati Narayanan, both mavericks in the social and educational sector with over two decades of experience of drawing children towards books, launched My Chapter One in India as a network of reading gyms spread out throughout Chennai, hosted by passionate, well-read women who would inspire children to give reading a try. A growing demand for such a structured, guided, enjoyable program has lead My Chapter One to launch in the USA.

Reading Gym


Let your child’s love for reading take off!

At My Chapter One, we believe that every child can find themselves in books. We believe the right atmosphere and consistent exposure are all you need for your child to be a great reader!

Welcome to My Chapter One’s Reading Gym, a year-long programme that spans three thematic trimesters*, where children will enjoy a diverse spread of books, work on a variety of reading strategies and activities – and eventually become life-long readers!

In our Reading Gym, your child will get:–

  • 3 thematic trimesters*
  • 12 books every trimester
  • Progress to higher Reading Bands
  • A variety of reading strategies
  • Challenging, skill-based activities

 

The young readers will take on a different book every week. Along the way, they will:-

  • work on a number of level-appropriate skills (including phonics, reading strategies, and writing)
  • Hone their 21st century learning skills (creativity, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking)
  • Be exposed to new ideas and knowledge
  • Become increasingly motivated to read for pleasure

What you have at the end of the year is a child, whose eyes will surely light up at the sight of a new book!
We currently offer sessions for Beginners (Band 1) and Emerging Readers (Band 2).
To sign up, or know more, get in touch on 959-929-7285.
*Each trimester consists of 12 weeks.
