Techniques of Story Telling

In the previous post I had talked about story telling and its benefits. (here )
Storytelling is the interactive art of using words and actions to reveal the elements and images of a story while encouraging the listener's imagination. It is an ancient art that extends around the globe.

You can make your story telling experience more enjoyable, interactive and knowledgeable by using the following techniques :

1. Tell the story like you talk :

This technique is very simple. Talk like you normally talk to children as if you are having a conversation with them.

2. Story telling with Movement :

Story telling with movement makes it possible for children to physically participate in the story. You can encourage your child to make a specific gesture or sound when they hear a specific word. You can even involve pretend play in your story telling. For example, in The Little Red Riding Hood Story he can be the wolf .

3. Story telling with props /accessories :

Story telling with props and accessories is always a lot of fun. For example, for the Hansel and Gretel Story, you can make the Witch's house with candies and chocolates. For The Little Red Riding Hood story, you can have a recipe of baked goods, a picture of the wolf or you can dress up Like the Little Red Riding Hood.

4. Story telling with a magnetic board :

The greatest advantage of using this method is that it makes it possible for children to tell stories in their own words and involves their favorite characters.

5. Story Telling with puppets :

Children love puppets. You can either make the puppets yourself or you can buy them online or from the market.

6Storytelling using picture clues :

Picture clue stories involve a combination of words and pictures. They are great for developing reading skills. Even if children are unable to read actual words, they can participate in the act of storytelling.

7.  Involve them :

You can ask your child what he thinks would happen next. Let him think and explore his imagination .

These are some simple techniques that you can use for story telling and make the whole experience enjoyable for your child.

In the next post, I will discuss how to be good story teller .
