Storytelling Day

Stories are an effective tool for early language teaching. They meet the emotional, cognitive and psychological demands of pre-school children: their need to belong; to act; to share; to feel protected, etc. Stories and fairy tales are inherently interesting to children. They speak to the "I" of the child, as Bruno Bettelheim stated in his book, The Uses of Enchantment. Accordingly, a storytelling day was held on February 29th , 2012 with the participation of parents.Children listened to stories, answered questions, sang songs and executed activities related to the stories with their parents.
