Story Time For Children At Kiddi Caru Harlow
The children at Kiddi Caru’s Harlow day nursery have been practicing their storytelling skills recently using the nursery’s new Easy Listen Music Box.
The children can listen to stories through headphones as a group and then take turns sharing their own story ideas. They have been listening to stories they have read in books, and using their imaginations to visualise characters and scenes rather than looking at illustrations. As they got used to listening they were able to revisit the book, trying to follow the words and pictures.
Louise Farrow, Nursery Manager, said: “We wanted to let the children try a new method of storytelling and the Easy Listen Music Box enabled us to do just that. It was so interesting to see how the children visualised the story without a book in front of them, and they all had different ideas about what each character and scene looked like. They have also been sharing the stories and their descriptions of the characters with their friends at the nursery.”
