Storytellers provide excitement and stimulation.
Engaging kids’ activities such as storytelling can improve concentration, listening skills and help develop and enrich spoken and written language. It can also help to stimulate the imagination, contributing to Speaking and Listening as well as Creative Writing, Poetry, Drama, Music and Art.
Hearing and retelling traditional tales can provide scaffolding for children’s own imaginative stories, giving the child a variety of frameworks to work from and encouraging a questioning attitude.
We can create excitement and enthusiasm for History, Geography as well as English language, literature and Drama.
Toddler activities such as storytelling can widen the range of children’s emotional, cultural and moral responses.
