Open the box and you will open children’s minds to a wealth of imaginative creations
As a storyteller, I’m always developing new and innovative materials that I can use to stimulate young minds and encourage them to explore language. Here are a few ideas you can use in your lessons based on a favourite activity of mine, ‘the magic box’.
I usually start my sessions with a story. This sets the scene and puts the class in a creative frame of mind. The story introduces a theme and encourages the children to think in pictures. The best tales always have the right balance of description to set the scene, action to move the story along, and emotion to create tone, colour and depth.
