Sensory Storytelling

Sensory storyteller is telling a story using as many of your senses as possible. Doing this empowers all children to bring stories to life. Research has shown that sensory input is important for how children develop as this is how they learn. Sensory storytelling allows all abilities to access and engage in stories that are being read to them.
