20) 2.2 Provide a detailed explanation of the benefits of using short stories to develop children’s narrative skills. (20) ANSWERS 1.1. The language stage that Tom is displaying is the Early Production stage. This stage is characterized by longer but simple sentences and an increased vocabulary. Examples from Tom's behavior include his ability to retell stories to his peers and his language resembling that of older children. 1.2. Tom's grandmother can strengthen and promote his language skills through various methods. One is by asking open-ended questions during or after storytelling, probing Tom for more details or his thoughts on the story. She can also help him construct sentences using new words and read books beyond his reading level together. She can also encourage retelling stories in his own words and introduce synonyms for common words. 1.3. As a teacher, you can employ different strategies to advance the literacy development of children like Tom. One is interactive read-alouds, where you read a story aloud and facilitate a discussion afterwards. You can also implement activities that enhance vocabulary skills, like word games or flashcards. Incorporating writing activities with storytelling can also enhance language development. 2.1. Children employ narrative skills to tell events logically and coherently, use appropriate details, and understand and apply the language of time. For example, if a child is asked to narrate a visit to the zoo, they may begin from the start of the journey, use descriptive words for the animals they see, and use terms such as 'first', 'then', 'finally' to denote the sequence of the events. 2.2. Short stories are a powerful tool in developing children’s narrative skills for several reasons. Firstly, they are digestible and age-appropriate, easing children into the basics of narratives. Additionally, they often contain clear elements of plot, setting, and character, which children can identify and discuss. They provide frames of reference for children, picking up new words, expressions, nuances, and techniques from stories that they can apply to their storytelling. The simplicity and repetition in short stories also ensure reinforcement of language skills, making them an effective tool in narrative skill development.
