Storytelling is a fun way to learn language, as experienced by some of the children under the care of Hiichiikok Foundation Home for Children Care recently. The storytelling session was hosted by The Story Book in Desa City Park, Kepong.
The Home gives emphasis to learning opportunities and opportunities for growth. These opportunities don’t just come in the form of tuition but in fun activities. Thanks to the generosity of the founders of The Story Book, some of the children were able to benefit from a free storytelling session.
The team at The Story Book started the session off with some ice-breaking games conducted in English. This was a good chance for the children to understand instructions in English and to practice using the language. Using language in context is one of the most effective ways to learn.
After that, the team at The Story Book read aloud a story from ‘Squirky, the Alien: Why am I blue?' authored by Melanie Lee. To make the story come alive, the team acted the scenes out. This facilitates understanding of the text in a vivid manner. All the children were captivated throughout the session.
