Some stories have few or no pictures for your child to look at while you are reading to them. Stories like these encourage children to imagine the details for themselves. Sit comfortably with your child and enjoy listening to the story we have recorded.

 

 

 

Click below to listen to story, Everyone is special

It is important for children to learn to listen to stories without the help of pictures.

The ability to listen carefully will allow your child to hear new words, to improve how well they understand things they hear and will help with the important communication skills of speaking and reading. When you are reading a story keep your child interested by using different tones of your voice that help them notice the exciting or sad parts or when someone else is talking.

While you listen to ‘Everyone is special’ notice how you can help your child to stay focused and enjoy the story. If your child has already heard this story it doesn’t matter as children enjoy hearing the same stories being told more than once.

 

 

Party stories het min prente waarna jou kind kan kyk terwyl jy vir haar lees, of selfs geen prente nie. Sulke stories moedig kinders aan om self die besonderhede te verbeel. Sit gemaklik saam met jou kind en geniet die storie wat ons opgeneem het.

Dit is belangrik dat kinders leer om na stories te luister sonder die hulp van prente.

Die vermoë om goed te luister, sal jou kind in staat stel om nuwe woorde te hoor, haar begrip van dinge wat sy hoor, verbeter, en sal help met die belangrike kommunikasievaardighede van praat en lees. Wanneer jy ʼn storie lees, behou jou kind se belangstelling deur verskillende stemtone te gebruik om haar te help om die opwindende en hartseer dele en ʼn karakter se woorde op te let.

Wanneer julle na die storie luister, let op hoe jy jou kind kan help om gefokus te bly en die storie te geniet. Dit maak nie saak as jou kind reeds hierdie storie gehoor het nie, want kinders geniet dit om dieselfde storie meer as een keer te hoor.
