Activity Story Bags are a wonderful way of introducing books to your little one's and will generally keep their attention for much longer than just reading the story. Children love to play! Fun and interactive activities based on their story book can spark their imagination and really bring a story to life.
Story Bags are multi-sensory in nature and children are much more engaged and integral to the story by being involved in book related activities, rather than passively listening.
There are lots of opportunities to develop language and literacy skills, through discussions and play based on the story. Children have the opportunity to see from another character’s perspective, thus developing empathy and emotional literacy skills, talking about their own feelings and emotions. Retelling stories is a great way of developing oral language skills and increasing vocabulary. Through discussions and asking questions you are developing your child’s comprehension skills too.
