Flannel Story Telling

It is wise to rehearse the story thoroughly beforehand and practice it in front of a mirror, if necessary placing and removing the pieces from the flannel board as you go. Close the door behind you and tell the story out loud to an imaginary audience. You may be wise to warn an unsuspecting spouse or parent in case he or she should overhear and come stumbling in! Practice your story well and you will be able to hold the attention of your hearers on the day of the talk.
