The use of stories in OELP classrooms

Stories have a deep connection with children. They touch the unique experiences and personal narratives of each child. Stories provide glimpses into the inner worlds of children. They are an invaluable means of accessing the real and imaginary worlds of children. As you will see in this film when children listen to a story, their related experiences take the form of their own little stories, and they pour out their own narratives and experiences, initially through conversations and drawing and gradually through their written stories.
This part of the film also provides a brief glimpse into the print rich classrooms which are set up by OELP.
