Abstract [en]

In early childhood education, storytelling has traditionally been seen as a learning activity that lays the groundwork for childrens vocabulary and literacy development. The present study uses video-recorded storytelling events to examine young childrens emotional involvement and aesthetic experiences during adult storytelling in a regular Swedish preschool for 1- to 3.5-year-olds. By adopting a multimodal interactional perspective on human sense-making, socialization, and literacy (Goodwin, 2017), it contributes to research examining multimodality in early childhood literacy (Kyratzis amp; Johnson, 2017). The analytical focus is on co-operation in aesthetic experience: the teachers ways of organizing an entertaining, affectively valorized and enchanting storytelling, and the children audiences verbal and nonverbal participation (Goodwin amp; Goodwin, 2004). The study shows that teachers used lighthouse gaze, props, marked prosody and pauses to invite the child audience to participate, join the attentive multiparty participation frameworks and share the affective layering of story. The young children exploited the recognizability of the story and contributed by co-participating through bodily repetitions, choral completions, elaborating or volunteering anticipatory contributions, and pre-empting the upcoming story segment. The study suggests that through adult-child co-operation, the embodied telling becomes a site for childrens affective and aesthetic literacy socialization. (C) 2018 The Authors.
