early childhood education, storytelling, oral language, language and literacy curriculum
Storytelling has been used for centuries to communicate social and religious traditions, cultural beliefs, and historical events across generations. In today's culture storytelling has been replaced by media technology such as computers, television and radio. Recent research has shown that children develop reading and writing skills much faster when given an environment rich in oral and written language. Adding storytelling to language and literacy curriculum in early childhood programs gives children more opportunities to be immersed in oral language which in turn will help develop reading and writing skills.
