DID YOU KNOW STORIES ARE THE BEST WAY TO LEARN?
Have you ever wondered why your little one can remember every word of their favorite movie, but not what they did at school? It's because of the story format! Research has found that children who are taught through stories are 65% more likely to retain the information versus verbal information. It's just one of the reasons why we use stories to lead each S.T.E.A.M class we teach as Play Smarter Kids.
Stories are a powerful way to deliver information, and our brains are wired to remember information delivered in a story format. Not only does it create a fun way to learn, it also gives purpose to each lesson. At Play Smarter Kids we use stories to create classes that are imaginative, fun and creative, and as a compelling way to incorporate history, literacy, and complex concepts.
Stories transform S.T.E .A.M activities into a learning adventure that encourages creative problem solving and active imagination.
Students learn empathy, emotions, and communication through characters in the story as well as small group activities.
Stories give meaning to learning activities, While listening to stories, children are focused, and are more likely to engage in group discussion with peers.
