One thought on “Telling Story “The Lion and The Mouse”

  1. Thank for your story. You prepared well and your voice is enough to listen.Picture also is nice. However, you should change your voice in some situation. For example, when the hunter comes, the lion shouts loudly. You should raise your voice. In addition, you should add some activities into your lesson. You can ask student to guess what is happening in the next scene or imitate the sound of the lion and mouse. This helps you change atmosphere in the classroom instead of speaking all story. When finishing the story, you can call on student to stand up and remind the main characters of the story. The activities at the end of story are good. Student can take part in the story and play a role in the story will help them remember the story better. Beside, you should put some questions in the middle of story to motivate student to listen and also check their attention. Finally, Let try to give your instructions shorter so that your students understand what you are saying.
