Storytelling was the reason languages developed in the first place, as our minds began to inquire, wonder and think. It is the oldest form of teaching. Be it in caves or in cities, storytelling remains the most innate and important form of communication. Stories define us, shape us, control us, and make us. Not every human culture in the world is literate, but every single culture tells stories. Studies have proved that infancy is the period when children absorb most of the words that they later use in their lives. When they grow up, storytelling encourages and enhances the listening skills of children. We at SAI Angan understand that the big advantage of storytelling is that listening to stories enhances a child’s vocabulary. As a story progresses and develops, children ask questions. This is a great learning activity. They learn to associate images in the book with the story and this develops their visualization capacity and imagination. Thus we have a defined storytelling centre within each class, replete with colourful story books.
