Storytelling is a creative activity of a teacher to convey messages to students, because elementary students cannot understand the pure advice given. They need learning that is not patronizing, so that it creates a cheerful and pleasant atmosphere. Storytelling becomes successful when students can focus on paying attention to the contents of the story and getting to know the characters that are told, then students remember the contents of the story and store it in the memory of the brain which can be taken back when needed. Furthermore, students translate the memory of stories that exist in their brains in the form of behavior that shows positive character and national cultural values.
