Importance of Story Telling to Pre-schoolers

Little Peals Play School

Children have an innate love of stories. Stories create magic and a sense of wonder at the world.
Stories teach us about life, about ourselves and about others. Little Pearls the top most preschool in NCR believes that Storytelling is a unique way for students to develop an understanding, respect and appreciation for other cultures, and can promote a positive attitude to people from different lands, races and religions.

At Little Pearls frequent story telling sessions are planned using hand puppets, stick puppets and big picture books. At Little Pearls teachers believe that telling a story captures children’s imagination, it gets them interested and excited and therefore happy to engage in purposeful talking. By using a storytelling technique, a subject becomes familiar and easy to relate to. It is so important to encourage creativity in children, and at Little Pearls allowing children to be creative plays an important role for learning benefits. Storytelling is naturally a creative teaching method, allowing for freedom of expression and use of imagination.

At Little Pearls the top most Preschool in NCR during the story telling session ,at the end of each session teachers get the class to think about the story and come up with exercises that will allow them to apply what they have learnt, and encourage discussion.This will allow them to interpret what they have learnt, flag up any misunderstandings, and allow you to be sure that the children have taken away what you had hoped from the session. At Little Pearls teachers are very creative and use mediums like facial expressions, voice modulation to keep the children engaged and interested throughout the session. The Teachers also use aids and props during storytelling, creating role play areas in the classroom with props, costumes or puppets so that children can explore a story they’ve read to them through role play is another fantastic way of fully immersing them in the story and encouraging them to think more meaningfully about it.Telling stories allows children to experience different worlds, countries, and traditions. It can help develop an appreciation of the rest of the world and different cultures.Storytelling has been proven to help develop a sense of empathy as children are encouraged to put themselves in the position of the story’s protagonist; to consider their actions and reactions and why they may have made them.
