Tips On Learning a Story:
Read the story over several times.
Do not memorize the story. Instead, learn how the different parts of the story follow each other.
Practice telling the story in the mirror or to a few friends or your parents.
Make sure you speak loud enough for people to hear.
Look into people’s eyes as you tell.
Add actions or make faces – whatever feels natural to you as the storyteller.
When you know the story very, very well tell it to your class, or other friends, or even at a local storytelling event.
Keep telling and making it better.
Begin to learn more stories to share.
