Pre School

Reading

Children benefit from adults who enjoy telling stories and can bring them to life.

 

Below are some tips to support  great story telling and share adventures in new and exciting ways throughout the day - with stories that spark and develop children’s imagination and creativity.

 

Tips and ideas:

  • Use different voices, tones, intonations and pauses to build anticipation and suspense during story times
  • Regularly update your book areas at home to provide material that meets the children’s areas of interests, including: fiction, non-fiction, poetry, magazines, comics, newspapers, recipe books, books showing people with disabilities as positive role models and homemade books
  • Stories should match children’s current levels of development, interests and length of concentration
  • Use story stonesshadow theatres and story boxes, making the children part of the story to encourage them to develop their own narrative
  • Create small reading nooks, change décor to match topics, or pop up reading tents in a new spot each day

Developing a love of books early is essential to support lifelong joy with literacy and story telling.
