In a world where we are constantly rushed, storytelling is almost a lost art. In today’s electronic age children are losing their creative thinking and their ability to create images in their mind. However, storytelling is one of the traditional ways to teach our children lessons about life. Through storytelling children develop listening skills, patience, problem solving, creative thinking, and many more skills used in their early years development. Story Baskets are created to expose children to various ways of learning and are a hands-on approach to education. Story Baskets present an opportunity for interaction between parent and child, child and peers, and child and educator. The creation of a Story Basket is beneficial to the maker as it is to the listener.
Story Baskets are meant to promote language development, develop problem-solving skills, develop creative thinking, develop imagination, and improve public speech.
Through this workshop you can expect to learn:
- How to create a story with loose pieces
- How to use a story basket
- How to turn a book into a story basket
- How to tell the same story in many different ways
“Through stories, children gain a lot of knowledge about life and the world’s values, and can then form goals and visions for their own lives.” -Susan Munzer(Author and Early Childhood Educator).
What if we all did something nice for each other? What if we were all a little kinder? What if we all encouraged one another? Let’s learn about kindness and encouragement from a little butterfly and the flower that smiled.
Bring your creativity, your open mind, and your appreciation for the power of story telling and ‘Make and Take’ a story basket to keep.
