Would you like to support your child’s ability to tell a story?
If so, Rory’s Story Cubes could help
The ability to understand and express stories or narrative is a vital skill for children to develop. Rory’s Story Cubes is comprised of 9 six-sided cubes which all have a unique, detailed and easily distinguishable image. You roll the cubes and tell a story.
With each roll of the cubes, new possibilities emerge. The number of stories that can be created are infinite.
Even though it is a game, it offers a great opportunity for children to learn the important components involved in story telling such as planning, creating the setting, sequencing events in addition to higher level skills such as discussing feelings, understanding actions and consequences and creating resolutions. It also helps children to understand and use “wh” question words (what, who, where, when and why).
These cubes provide good visual cues to assist with telling a story and stimulate creative thinking. Each story will be random and there is never a wrong way to go about telling it! With each new shake of the cubes, new possibilities will emerge creating excellent learning experiences and allowing creativity and imagination to go wild! It works best with groups but can also be played solo.
As a Speech and Language Therapist with a large interest in supporting narrative development, this tool comes highly recommended.
