Sylvan Learning Center Offers Tips on Becoming a Story Teller

Posted: Updated:

Having family story tellers can be beneficial for everyone – they entertain, inspire, and encourage all members of the family. And Sylvan Learning Center is sharing tips on how to become a great story teller.

To get started: 

  1. Family stories. Get your kids interested in their family by learning as much as you can about maternal and paternal relatives. Kids love to feel a  part of groups, and there's no more important group than family.
  2. Lesson-learned stories. Kids learn from others' mistakes, so take a well-timed "teachable moment" story and relay it to your children. A story about the time you messed up an important test because you didn't study enough can be worth its weight in gold.
  3. Twice-told stories. Re-tell your favorite stories over and over again. Not only is this a fun way to communicate, but kids may be able to tell this story to their children someday, passing along some family history.
  4. Neighborhood stories. Just as they love being a part of a family, kids love being a part of a community. Tell stories about the history of your neighborhood, what it was like years ago, memorable neighbors, and interesting occurrences. If you're new to your neighborhood, do a little research together.
  5. Proud stories. Tell kids about the things that have happened that make you feel proud. 
  6. Story teller stories. Tell your kids about your favorite story tellers, and how they made you feel when telling a story.

These stories help open the lines of communication. A story may help when your kid is feeling down or experiencing a disappointment or they might help to bring the entire family closer together.

Additionally, these stories can help develop language arts skills – reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
