Very Short Children Stories

For non-English speaking parents, introducing children to English can be a tricky thing. Teaching proper English can be even more challenging.

Parents should always remember that the world these days is not the same with the one we were in ten to twenty years ago. Children these days are more observant and critical towards everything they witness and analyse everyday.

The first and most important step that every parent needs to do is just 'introducing' all kinds of knowledge and skills needed by children. The rest of the development and improvement will be happening much faster and better than we could ever anticipate. With the independent and active learning methods that are applied in schools these days, children have better self-confidence in searching for the knowledge and skills they need and applying those knowledge and skills once they have acquired them.

Therefore, there is no need to be afraid of making mistakes when teaching our children. Just keep the positive attitude to show that what we are doing is sharing and introducing them to parts of the world that we know to let them explore and develop in the ways that they need those worlds to be.

To start the introduction process to English, I have written three short stories (very short, in fact), to let parents have a feel of sharing their knowledge in English with their children. These stories can be found in my blog 'Orcalion's Story Land'.

I am waiting (hoping) for someone who can make these stories more interesting by adding some pictures/illustrations. However, if you would like to use the stories with your own creativity to share with your children, you are very welcome to do so (you are welcome to share it here too, if you like).

I hope your experience in introducing English and reading to your children is a enjoyable one.

Have a nice day :-)
