Enhancing Language Experiences Through Storytelling and the Story Basket

Available from: ProQuest

Publication: Montessori Life, vol. 25, no. 2

Pages: 26-29

See More

Abstract/Notes: The Montessori early childhood classroom provides a seamless web of language experiences. As Montessori teachers, they are mindful of the many ways Practical Life, Sensorial, Geography, Science, and Mathematics lessons contribute to and support Language Arts. Within the Language Arts curriculum itself, there are multiple stages of learning. The lessons targeted to the oral and auditory stage are a fundamental piece of the language curriculum and offer the perfect opportunity to introduce a variety of literary experiences that can guide the young child toward developing necessary literacy skills and a love of language. The author takes this instruction to heart as she searches for ways to provide her students with experiences in expressive and receptive language. She uses a storytelling technique she calls the Story Basket that she believes has enriched the language curriculum in her classroom. Each week, she introduces some form of fictional or nonfictional story, whether it is about the journey of Christopher Columbus or a folktale, such as "Goldilocks and the Three Bears."
