About

Made by an ECE for ECE's

As an Early Childhood Educator I understand how useful felt stories can be and how the children love seeing songs and stories come to life, so I've started making my own and I want to share them with you!

What is a felt story?
It is a unique and wonderful way to use visuals and words together. The visuals are usually larger than in books which is appealing to children and displayed on a felt board.

Felt stories are valuable because:
* They are portable
* They have a magical quality that appeal to children
* They attract children
* They re-emphasize a story but in a slightly differ form
* They are inexpensive

Why do we use felt stories?
** To encourage the enjoyment of language – felt stories provide a more intriguing way for sharing a rhyme or short story. They can help toddlers who may show no interest in books to sit and enjoy a story.
** Flannel stories aid in the teaching of visual literacy – learning to look and construct meaning from objects.
** They promote active listening and learning.
