Story Telling


Being able to tell good stories can be a daunting task for many children, especially if they have speech or language difficulties.  For this reason, it is often easier to teach story telling skills by using visual supports, such as picture cards, or games that allow children to interact and get to know each another by sharing experiences.   


Often it is easiest to teach young children how to be better story-tellers by beginning with real objects, toys, or puppets.  The second step in this process is to move to picture books and the final step is to move away from visual support.  You can start with having children retell familiar stories later encouraging them to make-up stories of their own.


The recommended games and activities in this site support good narrative skills in children of all ages.
