Dramatic Reading, Radio Drama, & Recorded Books
Come enjoy some of your favorite stories while learning the art of storytelling!
Storytelling is a great skill to teach to kids. It helps improve their language skills, instills a love of reading and stirs their imagination. Research suggests that the fear of speaking in public is the second greatest fear that adults have. Getting kids comfortable with speaking in front of audiences at an early age is just one benefit of teaching kids how to tell stories.
In addition to learning how to tell a story, the students will also be learning how to dramatize a radio broadcast and to record an audiobook! The best children’s literature only gets better with repeated listening, reading, and viewing. With each rereading, children benefit from increased exposures to diverse sentence structures, vocabularies, and plots. What better way to accomplish this than to listen to recorded books as well as recording a book of your own!
