Storytelling encourages children to be creative and use their imagination to visualize the setting, the characters, as the story unfolds. Their focus and listening skills are developed as they concentrate on what the storyteller is saying. It gives them a chance to explore new ideas and information without realizing that they are learning values for life.
To build confidence, enhance speaking skills and stimulate one’s imagination Jubilee Hills Public School conducted Story Telling Competition on 23rd October 2019.
The students narrated different stories like The Hare and the Tortoise, Clever Kina, Greedy Dog, Unity and Strength, The Lion and the Mouse etc. The stories were judged on the basis of expression, confidence, diction and props used by students. The winners were awarded with mementos and certificates.
