Enrichment of vocabulary. It helps in developing a rapport between the child and the teachers. It prepares the child for building his memory and imagination.
STORIES: A COMMUNAL CURRENCY OF HUMANITY
Story telling is the very oldest form of teaching, the story creates magic and a sense of wonder at the world. Children should be told stories again and again, as stories define us, shape us, control us, and make us. Stories help your kids to know and understand the sounds and words, and develop early skills on them. When your child is listening to stories, it sparks his imagination, stimulates curiosity, and also helps your child in the development of his brain, social, and communication skills.
BENEFITS OF STORYTELLING
The story should be told in a dramatized manner or voice, as they love actions and movements. It is also very important to maintain eye contact with the children so that they have the feeling that they are a part of what is happening.
Every human culture in the world is not yet literate, but still, every single culture tells stories. Storytelling is a very unique way for kids to develop an understanding, respect, and appreciation for others and promote a positive attitude to people from different lands, religions, and cultures.
A very big advantage of storytelling is that listening to stories enhances your child’s vocabulary.
EFFECT ON CHILDRENS
When you tell your first story to your child, there is a magical moment. Your child sits enthralled, mouths open, eyes wide, and constantly staring into your eyes.
Children enjoy telling stories. The stories should be REAL stories, not fantasy or fairy tales, the story should be short with simple and easy language along with different pictures. The story should cover the events of daily life, like, there was a child who gets up in the morning, brushes his teeth, washes his face and combs his hair, and so on. There were the good old days when we would lie beside our daadis or naanis, and they read stories for us- the righteousness of the Pandavas, the stories of Vikram and Betaal, and many more. These stories taught us the important lessons of our lives, they taught us about good and bad.
Perfect storytelling is acting out a story. Storytelling parents are found to have a more emotional bond with the children, as storytelling is a creative form of expression where imagination is translated into words.
