The Power of Storytelling: Truthful Stories for the Early Childhood Program

Storytelling is a key component of Montessori programming at every level. It increases concentration, improves vocabulary, leads to pre-reading, reading, and comprehension skills, and is tremendously engaging for children. This workshop focuses on storytelling for the Early Childhood or Primary class. Storytelling at this level emphasizes personal stories, nature stories, stories about life, and mini-stories. Learn why stories are essential, how and when to offer stories, and learn some specific stories that you can use. Time will be given to helping you create your own stories. Join Michael to learn how you can be a gifted storyteller and transform your classroom into a story centered class.
