Once upon a time... Children of all ages love hearing a story. They are famous for flopping their bodies down and tuning their ears to listen to a story. Stories that captivate a child can help children develop their imagination. However, after the book is finished children often love to retell the events of the story. I love listening to my students as they reenact their favorite stories. I hear my students mimic the voices for each character as they carefully add their own details. Story retelling is an important skill for every young child. It helps build a memory of events as well as sequencing information. They can develop character insight and digest main ideas. I would love to acquire new storytelling kits and a flannel board. This would give my Kindergarten students the opportunity to retell their favorite stories using soft Velcro pieces to manipulate the characters and details of a story. They would work with a friend during their daily center time.
