Stories are a great way for children to learn about the world around them, as well as build their imagination and creativity. Stories are a great way to encourage kids to read. Stories help young children learn how to read, they help older children learn new vocabulary, and they can entertain everyone in the family. Stories come in many different formats, from picture books to comic books, but the basic story structure is always the same.
Stories are divided into chapters or acts to make them easier for kids to follow. Each chapter or act has a distinct beginning, middle, and end so that kids know what's going on at all times. The beginning of each chapter should briefly summarize what happened in the previous one so that kids don't get confused if they miss a day or two of reading.
Here's some information on what stories are and why they're important for kids.
What is a story?
A story is made up of events that follow one another in a logical order with a beginning, middle, and end. We tell stories when we share experiences with other people: these events can be real or imaginary – we don't always know which ones are true! But it doesn't matter because whether it's real or not makes no difference to the listener (unless you're trying to convince them!).
Stories make us feel good because we like having our imaginations stimulated by hearing someone else describe what happened in their lives or about something that happened in the past (or even in another country!). This can be true even if we don't like what happened – it could be funny or sad or horrible! But it's still exciting to hear about other people's lives; this is how we learn about ourselves too because everyone has different experiences that shape who they are.
Once upon a time, there were three pigs. Their names were piggy, porky, and Piggly wiggly. They lived happily together until one day, a huge wolf came to the door. The first piggy answered the door and greeted him with a big smile on his face.
The wolf said, "Hello! How are you today?"
Piggy said, "I am doing fine."
Then the wolf said, "Could I come in for some hot chocolate?"
Piggy said "Sure!" and let him in. The wolf ate all his food and took his house as well.
The second piggy answered the door and greeted him with a big smile on her face. The wolf asked if he could come in for some hot chocolate? Piggy said sure! And let him in. The wolf ate all his food and took his house as well.
The third piggy answered the door and greeted him with a big smile on his face too! He asked if he could come in for some hot chocolate? Piggy said sure! And let him in. Piggy gave him all his food but did not give up his house or anything else because it was made of bricks so strong that even can be broken.
