Story Telling Activity
“The purpose of a storyteller is not to tell you how to think, but to give you questions to think upon.”
Storytelling is a universal and traditional art form that has featured strongly in Indian culture as an effective communication tool. It can be used to inform, entertain and educate. It is often used as a medium to ingrain values, improving reading skills and opening the minds of children to world beyond imagination.
A workshop for story-telling was thus organized for class II & III, by Ms. Monisha Gupta. The session was indeed valuable and distinct. Children found it really interested and engrossed in the stories. The appropriate use of voice modulation and body language infused passion, enhanced imagination and expression and introduced children to new horizons of storytelling. It was an interactive session where children were taught the right way of telling the stories. Overall this session helped the young souls to develop one of the key competency - Creativity .
Workshop was conducted by Scholastic, involved in children book publishing. The purpose of the workshop was to bring out the urge of reading with in students.
