There begins the teacher always with reading - telling to new or already famous children of the fairy tale.

Practice shows: to cause the greatest emotional response to contents of the fairy tale from the little listener, the teacher - the story-teller has to know the text of the read work in perfection. Melodiousness and expressiveness of reading - telling, ability “to come off“ the book page, to meet eyes the child, to transfer it the emotional state - important components of perception of a work of art.

Conversation. The tutor has to be ready to possible questions of children in advance and itself to prepare questions for conversation with preschool children. It is very important to induce children to pass on own initiative an opinion on actions of various characters, it is especially moral opposite types, to show responsiveness, ability to regret, sympathize, be glad, to remember own negative and positive acts.

Thinking over questions for conversation about read, the teacher seeks to help the child to understand an image and to define the position to it. These questions have to develop discussion in children`s collective in the course of which humane feelings of children are consolidated. The questions addressed to children have to stimulate, on the one hand, the emotional relation to read, and with another - not to cause offense and aggression in some children who can be something similar to negative characters.

Therefore it is not necessary to ask the little listener questions on understanding (for example: “You understood why the wolf began to help Ivan - the tsarevitch?“). Such questions quite often destroy a spontaneity of children`s perception, generate at the child mistrust to the comprehension, uncertainty in themselves, fear of joint reading and of the book: “Suddenly will ask, and I will not be able to answer!“. Let understands better not as we (even if we are sure that we understand correctly). “It is much more important that he worried really that the desire to worry did not leave. And reader`s ability and requirement to worry will remain - the understanding will come“.

It is worth asking only those questions which help the adult reading aloud to come into emotional contact with the child and at the same time aggravate interest and attention of the kid in readable. For example: “You guess what now happens? What, your way?“

how it is described in the fairy tale fine and ugly.

And you or your friends, acquaintances sometime appeared in a similar situation? How you (they) then arrived? As if you arrived now if you had a possibility of the choice?, Etc.

Retelling of the fairy tale by children allows to study nature of perception the senior preschool children of heroes of fairy tales, to define under the influence of what fantastic situations the child`s attitude towards the specific hero how various characteristics of characters are transferred in various fantastic situations by the preschool child is formed.

When retelling it is fixed:

absence or appearance of the new character;

in what place of retelling the child has difficulties;
