Introduction

1.1 Background of the Study

Basic education is a first experience in the world of schooling to a child. Primary school meaningful learning experience will encourage children and provide them with skills, confidence and a positive attitude. All of these skills are important in preparing them for entering formal schooling and lifelong learning (Morni, 2002). Therefore, basic education is a fundamental education that is essential for the development of thinking, character, personality, morality and behavior of a person. According to Dewey (1947), children’s learning experience must be led by the teacher by creating a situation or condition that is conducive to their physical and mental development.

Early education is emphasized because, in this stage the child directly or indirectly will adapt everything that happens around them. Each input and teaching will be more easily absorbed in the early stages. According to Bandura (1986), children learn through ‘imitation’, from their social environment. In fact, the process of imitation of children from parents, adults and teachers deemed to be an important source for the development of children’s morality. Aspects of moral and ethical values among pupils is the current demands for the virtuouscitizen (Rashid, 2001). Along with that, there are varieties of techniques, strategies and methods used by parents, guardians and teachers to assist in the development of cognitive, affective and psychomotor of pupils. Specifically, the inculcation of moral values and ethics in the minds of children in primary schools cannot be overemphasized. Like the saying, “while young, the bamboo can be easily bent”. To achieve this, the use of storybooks or narrative method to inculcate moral values among children has been considered as one of the most effective strategies.

Storytelling and story book reading has been widely recommended in educational setting. It is common for teachers to read stories to young primary school students in class. Sometimes, teachers who enjoy storytelling choose to integrate storytelling into their classroom routine, believing that their students might benefit from it. According to Sobol (2009), the ancient art of oral storytelling has experienced a resurgence in popularity among child audiences as well as adult audiences. In addition to its entertainment value, someproponents of storytelling and story book reading believe thatstorytelling and story reading may have considerable potential as an educational tool (Alna, 1999).


1.2 Statement of the Problem

The objective of early childhood education is to establish a foundation for the development of a child’s character, behaviour, knowledge, skills and creativity to spur further development and growth. There are six aspects of development that are focused on in early education of children: “Moral and Religious Values” which is the focus of this study among others.

There are a number of ways that one might morally educate a child. One can demonstrate various virtues and encourage the child to copy his or her own behavior. One can issue a series of imperatives and punish if failure to abide by them. Moreover, one might tell the child stories with moral lessons in order to elicit favorable behavior and to discourage unfavorable behavior. Storytelling and story reading has a ragtag reputation among school teachers.

One reason for this reputation is because of a limited research on classroom storytelling and story reading method as a strategy for teaching moral education. Therefore, in this study, storytelling is to be assessed as an educative tool to inculcate moral values and ethics among pupils.
