Role Play

Through incorporating role play in the art of storytelling, The Story Monkey aims at bringing out a child’s unique style

of self expression. When children do role plays, they naturally become someone or something else. Role play stimulates their imagination and enhances their social development, encourages friendship through cooperation, listening and turn taking.

Why Stories

The best way to teach people is by telling a story

– Kenneth Blanchard

Stories are how we learn and the best way to understand our world. These storytelling workshops help the child become socially confident and develop a sound vocabulary, while giving them a good command over the English language.

Our passion is to make our kids learn the power of imagination & visualization, and prepare them to be good storytellers themselves. We help raise a reader who is curious, creative and imaginative. Stories help in language development at a very early age. It also helps in building a vast vocabulary and aids in listening skills.

All our learning is done through stories and role play, as we truly believe that the stories make the lesson learnt very powerful and life-long. We feel that storytelling is one of the greatest contributors in an overall personality development of our children. We believe starting early makes 20 times more impact, as a child’s brain is yet to learn how to multi-task, hence more focused and ready to absorb. From class room to board room, its all about storytelling, be it a fairy-tale or a sales pitch.

The Story Monkey is a cute corner where every kids’ imagination finds expressions.

We make learning fun for kids, and we also nurture every child’s creativity, develop oratory skills and out-of-the-box thinking through various creative, critical thinking and public speaking activities.

We cater to kids starting 2 .5 years till 9 years of age. Stories are done from different genres, using voice modulation, puppets and music, followed by art & craft activity and lots of role play. We also organize stage days, where we encourage the kids to become the storytellers.
The workshops at The Story Monkey are tailor made for each age group as per the children’s developmental needs, with activities designed to teach them something new in every session.
It is interesting to see how every child gets hooked on to stories at this cute little reading corner.
