Storytelling using outdoors
The outdoors offers lots of opportunities for storytelling. Get inspired by the things you see and practice signs for them in this fun way.
Using real people, animals and places is a good way to add life to your stories for your child and to establish the link between stories, characters and the real world.
Ducks at the park
The video above tells a story you can also tell while you’re in the park – about a family of ducks. Notice how the storyteller points at the ducks and the pond regularly linking the story to the environment around her. Doing this will help your child to visualise what's happening.
