Younger children don't always find it easy to sit still for very long! However they love listening to stories. Try to develop an oral story telling style that doesn't rely on picture prompts. Engage the children by including actions that the children can join in with to make the story interesting and memorable (I have highlighted words or phrases in bold that may lend themselves to actions). Invite the children to close their eyes to imagine part of the story, or something personal to them. This will help develop mental imaging and can act as a precursor to using the full visualisation scripts at a later stage.
