Language Arts, Storytelling, and Dramatic Play Curriculum

Language arts incorporate many different sources of creativity for children- reading books, listening to stories on tape, acting out stories with puppets, acting out scenes in a dramatic play center, telling stories with a felt board, or creating their own stories. Through oral language and reading books, children start to develop other skills- new vocabulary, a child's own ability to narrate an event, or the knowledge that words move from left to right and top to bottom on a page are just a few. These skills will make your child eager and ready to read.

Our storytelling curriculum concentrates on language skill development as well as broadening creative horizons for children by exposure to new stories and ideas. At Le Chaperon Rouge, we have a innovative way of bringing storytelling to life by introducing a mixture of very old folktales and new children's authors, incorporating various sorts of props, and encouraging child participation.
