STORY MAKING FOR NATIONAL STORY TELLING WEEK

This week was National Story Telling week. 
It seemed like a good week to offer up more story sacks and prompts for story telling.
We held a story telling session at our local toddler group, sharing the story of the "Billy goats gruff". The children enjoyed taking the goat puppets over the bridge and I think the children who played the troll had even more fun!
Little "R" enjoyed the repetitive nature of the story and started to anticipate what the goats and the Troll would say.

Literacy (Reading)
  • (30-50 months) Listens to and joins in with stories and poems, one-to-one and also in small groups. 
  • (30- 50 months) Joins in with repeated refrains and anticipates key events and phrases in rhymes and stories. 
Communication and language (Listening and attention)

  • (30- 50 months) Listens to stories with increasing attention and recall. 
  • (30- 50 months) Joins in with repeated refrains and anticipates key events and phrases in rhymes and stories. 

Little "L" wanted to be the little goat with the pink dress. She loves everything pink and pretty!

Personal social and emotional (Self-confidence and self-awareness)

     • (22- 36 months) Expresses own preferences and interests. 


After the school run, while I was cooking dinner, the children sat at the dining table and each made a story book. I had offered blank paper books, gel pens, pencils, coloured pencils and stickers for the children to use in their books. Some of the children were able to write their own stories, others needed me to help with some of the words and the very little ones need me to do all the writing. But each child created their own book with their own ideas!





I love how each book was different. The different materials chosen to decorate them and how each child shared their story!
