Of course, Big Sister jumped right into the role of teacher/librarian. She loves being the
boss Big Kid who can tell the littler kids all about life at pre-K, dance class, and every other place that only she know about since she is the Big One in the family. You know, how life is on the Pre-K streets 😉
So, What are some other ways to “Experiment with Storytelling” and build on SO many concepts?
~ Use a puppet to tell the story, quiz the children on colors, ask ‘what happens next’, pique their curiosity, question emotional states.
~Play the Director Game: The child tells the story as Mom/Dad writes it down. Draw pictures to go along with the story. Read it together. Save it forever 🙂
~Tell a story about this morning’s experience. Recount details/characters/feelings. Add surprise endings for fun.
~Act out a favorite story using super hero figures, Little People…whatever in on hand and a favorite in your house.
~Tell a story based on one of your child’s drawings. Scribbles are detailed drawings, too 🙂
~Tantalizing with Storytelling: Set up an invitation to play like ours! You could also sit on a big comfy blanket with lots of pillows and start reading to yourself. Use fun voices and sounds…See how long it takes for little kiddos to climb up into your lap 🙂
