Advantages Of Felt Board Storytelling

Yesterday I showed you my lovely new felt board gingerbread village. The youngsters are having a lot enjoyable singing the music, reading the book, and retelling the story with their new felt pieces. As intricate because the pieces in this story are, there may be such simplicity in Preschool felt board stories board stories. It takes me back to a time when WE had to inform the story. Don’t get me fallacious, I love technology. Now we have apps for storytelling, books on CD or the ipod, and Tag readers that do everything for us. I really like all of these things, but as soon as in a while, it’s good to decelerate and let the kids be in charge of the story telling.

I get pleasure from sitting back, and listening to the language skills that kids need to make use of as they're storytelling. They are talking, listening, creating their vocaulary, and calling upon reading skills that we have now been learning in class. If they're retelling a well-recognized story, they're utilizing their listening and memorization skills. Creating their own story includes thinking about cause and impact, problem fixing, exploring relationsips, manners, and cooperation.


There's so much creativity concerned in felt board storytelling. In early childhood, play is a child’s primary avenue for exploration and learning. Play stretches the imagination by way of hands on studying, in a visual, auditory, and tactile way.


There are many wonderful ideas for different ways to use the felt board. We’ve used felt boards in the classroom to teach math concepts, colors, matching games, sorting actions, seasons, and plenty of other concepts. Storytelling tends to be my favorite use for felt boards. I think I’m going to see if my daughter may need to make a few felt tales with over the break. I do know she’d love reducing up cloth scraps to decorate a gingerbread house.

Felt boards are extraordinarily inexpensive to make and youngsters love exploring with tales and felt pieces.

Happy story telling!
