Bingo’s school issues news letters every month with what they did last month, what they planned to do next month, list of holidays etc. I saw they have mentioned story telling event on 5th February. I was telling BD that someone might come to their school to tell stories.
Day before yesterday I got a note from school asking parents to prepare their kids to tell story and they have mentioned it will be for nursery, PP1 and PP2. I was making fun saying what will happen if they ask playgroup kids to tell story.
Yesterday I got a note which asked us to send the story, which our kid is going to tell, in a paper to help them in case if they forget. What?? Which means Bingo has to practice a story within half-a-day! I decided I am not doing this, I mean, I am not going to push her. I asked Bingo which story she likes. She told Rama and Sita one. Then I asked her to tell the story. She told like this:
“Rama and Sita went there and there and there… Sita saw a golden deer and they said hello deer, good morning deer, how are you deer, bye bye, good night deer”.
I was laughing very hard and I asked her to say it again. She actually wanted to tell this story: http://www.nickjr.co.uk/watch/bedtime/bedtime-story-rama-and-sita/
She now remembers all the stories that we read and the videos she watches. She can complete the sentence if we stop in middle. For example, if I say Noddy and Bumpy were having a ‘_____’ she completes it with ‘lovely time playing fetch!’ It was fun to watch her telling stories and at time she pretends to read books on her own. I already started imagining about visiting libraries together 🙂
