Storytelling is an art form that holds within its umbrella, manifold benefits. Firstly it enhances the vocabulary and sharpening listening skills of the child. Storytelling is also a powerful tool to improve a child's confidence and communication level.
In my sessions at Green pocket, I try to give utmost importance to the above mentioned skill development. In addition to this, I try to focus on strengthening their emotional quotient by identifying the emotions in the story, by putting themselves in a similar situation and trying to figure out how they would feel. This enables the child to start identifying their feelings followed by acceptance of the same.
Storytelling is a powerful tool , which if used in the right manner, can strengthen a child's intelligence and emotional quotient.
