Storytelling Activities For Kids

storytelling Storytelling is an important piece of the literacy puzzle. Of all the benefits to encouraging your children to tell and write stories I think the most amazing one is to connect them with their creativity. They take an idea, develop it, and then create something the can share . To me showing children that they can create is incredibly powerful. Of course there are so many side lessons from storytelling like spelling, learning story elements, comprehension, character development, even public speaking.  Here are 20 storytelling activities for children including two of my favorite tools for storytelling puppets and pretend play!
