Few things have the power to stimulate creativity and children's imagination as much as inventing stories.
Whether they are written in storybooks or the product of an early childhood educator's imagination, stories have the power to capture children's attention.
As we all know, stories, and the way we use them, help children develop their vocabulary. Their language skills are called upon when we ask questions related to illustrations and when they are asked to name various items and feelings.
Here is a simple activity that will make it possible for children to invent stories of their own using illustrations as inspiration. They will build their vocabulary because they will be asked to name various items and build complete sentences.
What you will need:
You can use magazines, coloring books, the Internet, or old storybooks to find interesting pictures and illustrations. Simply cut them out and laminate them for durability.
Different ways to play:
If you wish, you can record or write down the stories invented by the children in your group. They will enjoy listening to their stories over and over again... What a great way to make story time even more fun!
