There are many rewards we get by having children narrate authored stories and their own tales. Storytelling when done both formally and informally helps children learn to speak confidently in front of groups. The benefits that accrue when we give children an opportunity to tell stories are immense.
- Storytelling increases self-esteem. It develops confidence.
- Storytelling improves listening skills.
- Telling stories improves and reinforces other language skills such as vocabulary, story recall, and reading aloud with expression and confidence.
- Storytelling helps creative writing.
- Storytelling stimulates inventive thinking and imagination
- Telling stories instills a love of language in children and motivates them to read.
- Perhaps most important of all, storytelling is fun!
