Tell Stories that Extend Young Children’s Imagination, Understanding, and Retelling

Dr. Isbell Storytelling

When stories are told they make powerful connections to the listener. Early Childhood teachers are already storytellers who often recall their day and children’s experiences to others. Let’s use storytelling to extend children’s interest in language, books, literacy, and writing. Uncover how to select and share appropriate stories with young children as you become the teller. Experience how to invite participation of the young listeners as they connect to the teller and the story. Learn how stories told positively impact: vocabulary development, story understanding, moral lessons, and comprehension of the content. Children who have experience listening to stories told will become tellers, readers, and writers of stories too. Catch the bug and learn a story you can tell tomorrow to your children that will be remembered forever!!
