Story TellingStorytelling was part of everyone’s childhood. Stories create magic and a sense of wonder at the world. Stories teach us about life, about ourselves and about others. 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.
In early childhood education, storytelling is not only an effective way of grasping the attention of children but also has many developmental benefits.

•Storytelling with puppets or other characters
•Personal (or a child’s) experiences
