In celebration of the English and National Book Week, my son’s school chose me to be a “Mystery Parent Storyteller” this November. It will be the next week. To show my son that I truly support their learning and activities in school, I accepted the invitation. This is another first activity in school that I will be closely involved with the students and teachers since my son is a new student this school year.
I should be confident! Honestly, I’m a bit nervous in this event. It’s just like reading a story with my son or simply telling a story aloud for children that we watch from Hi 5. I am thinking that way to make myself comfortable in story telling. Being part of the story telling is truly a great way of making the children feel that their parents are interested in learning and reading. Making it fun and entertaining is a plus!
As a mystery parent storyteller, I’ll do my best to make the story engaging for students to listen. Now, I am thinking on what beautiful story to pick. Also, I will be preparing props or costume maybe to amaze them. We know children loves surprises. Once they see something amazing, wonderful or new, they easily get hook with that. Part of my preparation is to condition my vocal cords so no more ice cream, cold drinks or too much sweets this week. And, I think I am going to need enough sleep for two or three days before that event.
This is my first time to be a mystery parent storyteller. To my fellow parents and readers, I need help on what story to choose for 6, 7, or 8 years old age appropriate story/ book. What story would you recommend or suggest? Kindly leave the title in the comment. Thank you so much!
