In nursery we have been working on our story telling skills. There are lots of places in our classroom for us to practise our story telling.
We have our story board where we use the pictures to tell a story. We had pirate pictures but Elsa, Ana and Olaf have also arrived due to popular request!
“Once upon a time Ana lived in a beautiful castle.” “Then Olaf came” “Then Bruce” “Oh no! He wants to eat her!” “Help me Olaf!” “Then once upon a time there was a shark” “He friends now” “Happy ever after” “The End”
“Once upon a time there was a beautiful fairy called Isabelle. Then she met a duck and then a butterfly. The butterfly flew away” “They went in a cave” “Help me, I flew away” “I’ll help you!” “There was a nice robot, who was friends with the tooth fairy. They found another robot” “They lived happy ever. The End” “Happily ever after”
We have added some more characters to our block area to encourage the boys to tell stories when they are building.
“We’re pirates on board!” “Hello Captain Chip!” “Hello Captain Fish” “Captain Fish and Chips, hahaha” “All aboard the pirate ship” “Up on the flag” “Naughty pirate, he’s escaping in the car” “The police take him, escaping in the police helicopter” “Aboard the captain” “Aye Aye mate!” “Haha mate” “Walk the plank mate” “Captain says so”
Some of the children also wrote their stories in their writing journals while other children chose to draw maps or write special messages.
Do you tell stories at home?
You could tell stories about your drawings, use your toys to tell stories or dress up and make up stories.
You could even make your own story stones. All you need for story stones are flat(ish) pebbles/rocks and pens or stickers. We use the stickers or draw pictures on the rocks. We have stones with different characters, places or objects on. To make your stones last longer you can paint them with a layer of glue.
