Early Years

  • The importance of stories

    Oral storytelling is, and has been, a major communication tool across many cultures for centuries. With the introduction of writing tools, people began writing their stories for others to read and enjoy. But why do so many students become anxious about having to speak, read or share writing in front of their peers? And, why do they have such difficulty speaking, reading and writing with purpose? While each mode of communication requires slightly different skills, there are many transferrable skills that will lighten the demands on the student's brain and allow them to focus on the task at hand.
