Fun ways to share stories.x

Hello readers,

I hope you are keeping well and safe with your family. Entertaining your little ones through these times can be frustrating (dont feel guilty for getting frustrated it's part of the rollercoaster) as your child may rather play than complete work set. It is vital form a young age your child is read to. Children can learn new language and words when they are read to, whilst sparking their imagination. Not all children enjoy story books so here are a few ways to get your child engaged in story time.

1. Let your child choose the book you want them to read. If they feel it is their choice chances are they will be more focused as the option is centred around themselves.

2. Set up a cosy corner. Make the reading area comfy and quiet so your child has no distractions and can be comfortable when reading (free from noise if you can).

3. Use puppets. Children will love acting out a story,  whether you buy your own puppets or get your child to make some using any resources around the home , these are a brilliant way to bring you story to life.

4. Picture books are a fantastic way to keep your child guessing about the story. If your child is older , ask them about the story , ask them what will happen next or how they think the character is feeling, these will expand your childs vocabulary and cognitive thinking.

These ideas are cost free and will take your childs thinking on a journey. Set aside 10 minutes a day for story time , its something parents and children  can enjoy together.

Love Mamma x

Happy reading 📚
