The Storytelling Toolbox

COK: 3 hours of Professionalism

Training Description:

Storytelling can be the best way to give children new information, introduce concepts and show how story characters face problems and resolve them. Learn how to get ready for a story with “a story frame of mind”.



During this workshop participants will:

  1. Identify several reasons why storytelling and reading aloud to children is developmentally beneficial.
  2. List non-verbal clues that show that children are ready to hear the story.
  3. Name and demonstrate ways to maintain children’s attention during a story.
  4. Develop strategies to retell the story with the children
