This week, we wrapped up our In the Orchard theme and started getting things ready for Transportation Station.
Each month, we get a new preschool curriculum kit that’s overflowing with cool stuff. One of our favorite things that we get are magnetic storytelling pieces.
They’re all kinds of fun and we both definitely love them. If you’re curious to know why, then definitely keep reading.

If you’ve been around for a while, then you already know that we’re using Mother Goose Time for preschool homeschool and it’s been such a huge blessing to us.
There are so many benefits to storytelling for little kids, so I thought I’d share a few reasons why we love these awesome magnetic storytelling pieces in our preschool homeschool.
- Creative Thinking – I love listening to the little guy’s stories. He weaves elaborate tales, some fiction and of course others not so much. Either way, he’s definitely all kinds of creative and for a good reason. We’ve been reading and creating together since he was a tiny baby and we both obviously enjoy it.
- Language Skills – Sharing stories encourages developing language skills as little kids learn to choose the best words to convey what’s on their minds. They’re using their growing vocabulary as a means of self expression and the big words that come out of my four year old’s mouth never cease to amaze me.
- Social Interaction – Preschoolers learn important social skills from the give and take that comes with storytelling. Not only are the learning to listen to their peers, but they’re also learning to take turns when it comes to speaking and presenting. And those are, no doubt, skills that will take them far in life.
