Storytelling is an art of narrating or unfolding the narratives of a story. It has been a part of our culture and tradition for centuries or we can say from many civilizations. Stories teach us about life, about ourselves, and others. Storytelling is a unique way for students to develop an understanding, respect and appreciation for other cultures, and can promote a positive attitude to people from different lands, races and religions.
Competitions are the best way to build the confidence in children. Keeping this in mind, an ENGLISH STORY TELLING COMPETITION was conducted in the KG Section for KG 1 and KG 2 students to enhance the confidence and speaking skills of the students. Many students participated in the competition. The preliminary round took place on 11th November 2019. The final round was conducted for KG 2 students on 12th November 2019 and for KG 1 students on 13th November 2019.
The tiny tots participated in the competition actively and enthusiastically and performed spectacularly narrating their favourite stories with awesome enthusiasm, props, actions, voice modulation and impressive expressions which impressed the judges very much.
The competition was judged by a panel of three judges. The judgment was based on props, action, pronunciation, performance and presentation skill of the children. The competition was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. The little story tellers won everyone’s heart and were applauded. It reflected the efforts of the children and parents put in along with the support of the teachers. The appropriate use of voice modulation and body language enhanced imagination and expressions, creative gestures and facial expression. It was a fun-filled competition.
