How to Be an Excellent Storyteller

Story Telling can be one of the greatest and powerful tools used when teaching young ones to love books.
* Some stories can be real from a book or something that has happened
* Some stories can be make-believe something you can make up to try to
get a certain lesson across

RULES OF STORY TELLING
A. Read the story and know it.
- Know it well enough to tell it in your own words.

B. Your story should focus on ONE MAIN IDEA.
- What is the truth or moral I'm trying to communicate in my story?

C. You can make up stories.
1. You need a main character or hero (cowboy, astronaut, etc.).
* What is the character like?
* What is the character's name?
* Is the character strong? smart? brave?

2. Use the character weekly for 3 months.
* But change adventures weekly.

3. Reinvent the character for the next 3 months.
* Rotate stories every 2 to 3 cycles.

D. Do not give away the whole story in the title or the beginning.
- Create suspense

E. Use voices to create the mood.
- Sadness, anger, suspense, happiness, etc.

F. Let characters talk.
- Act out the part.

G. Story must have a PACE.
- Speed up or slow down your voice.

H. Use sound effects and objects.

I. Ask questions while telling the story.
- This grabs the attention of the children.

J. Make an application (truth in the lesson).
1. Build the story to a CLIMAX.

2. Bring the story to a CONCLUSION.

3. ASK QUESTIONS at the end of every story.
