PreSchool Children love Fairy Tales. I can think of no better way to pass an afternoon than listening to someone narrate one of the classic childrens stories of all time.

My favorite, Beatrix Potters first charming tale of Peter Rabbit. Children around the world love to hear about the adventures of this lovable little rabbit as he sneaks to the forbidden garden of Mr McGregor.

Preschool Activities- Reading Picture Books

March 16th, 2008 by admin

Picture books leave a lot to the imagination. That’s why they are so great for preschoolers and toddlers. Even better, almost all books to them are picture books.

This could be great for you. Why? Well, first thing off the top of my head, we don’t have to read the same story over and over again. How many times has your little one done this to you?

They love a book so much they just want you to read it again and again, and again. Well… no more. We get to change things around, and here’s how:

– let them tell you the story, this is from their memory, or they make it up as they go, this inspires their imagination, and the more the can imagine the better

– you can change the story, think of what else could be going on in the pictures that your child would like to hear about

– focus on other things in the book, what else is going on while the story is being read? discuss this with your preschooler

– (my favorite) take a book you haven’t read in awhile and completely ignore the words, even better use a book you have never read, say from the weekly library trip, and make up a story based on what is going on in the pictures, your child won’t know the difference, and tomorrow you will have a completely different story to tell them, thus again teaching them to stretch their imaginations.

Well, preschoolers are no different in this area, and many would argue that they need just as much reading as other kids, so why not do a program for your preschooler?

images.jpgFelt board stories have long been a great way to show kids stories without using books. You have to remember that kids get distracted a lot, and even though books are great, they can get bored of them. That is why we use other ways to entertain them. Anyhow back to felt boards. There are a few reasons felt boards are awesome.
