Little ones love literacy.
Music is magic!
Telling stories is how we contextualize and make sense of our world.
Last week, I talked about the importance of telling fairy tales and folk tales. I referenced Bruno Bettleheim's Uses of Enchantment. Going through difficult scenarios and emotions in stories prepares us to go through them in real life.
Today I share a small moment story with you from my childhood, "All Sandy."
Tell your small moment stories. Tell stories to your little ones about when you were little.
In this blog, I talk about how important it is - not just to read stories to our children - but also to tell them. Stories help us make sense of the world, and boost our emotional intelligence. In particular, fairy tales and folk tales teach us coping skills and prepare us for difficult emotions and situations in life.
After talking about folk tales, I tell one, and sing it.
Keep telling stories.
