Preschool: Story Time

“Maybe he is not a good swimmer like me, thought Rabbit, and he jumped into the river and swam to the other side. But as he pulled himself up onto the bank…” a teacher read aloud from the beloved book The Black Rabbit by Philippa Leather. One child enthusiastically anticipated the next page and declared, “and there was the black rabbit!” Story time happens formally and informally throughout the day in the Preschool classroom. Our Preschool library is well stocked with seasonal and classic children’s books. Throughout work time, children can choose to sit in the library and look at books independently as well as with friends. Often times a teacher will read to small groups of children as well.

Young children typically love to listen to stories. Reading aloud to children has many benefits. It helps them explore new facts, acquire the correct word pronunciation and becomes exposed to new vocabulary. Storytelling is a great way to instill a lifelong love of books and reading.
