Written by two veteran storytellers, this practical handbook shows teachers how to start a youth storytelling group, taking readers through the process of planning, managing, and growing a group, and offering a wealth of games and activities as well as reproducibles and checklists.
This light-hearted sourcebook for teachers and librarians describes food-related activities, including stories, rhymes, fingerplays, crafts, cooking and tasting experiences, and short skits, designed to delight young minds while teaching skills. Each group of recommended picture books is supplemented by topical songs, poems, chants, flannel board constructions, and puppet skits.
Provides detailed information to help adults develop basic skills in reading aloud, mediated storytelling, and storytelling. Chapters move readers from the easiest to the most difficult storytelling experience, building skills in selecting, preparing, and delivering stories and poetry to audiences. Instruction is based not only on the author's own extensive experience, but also on empirical research related to teaching adults to tell stories.
This storytelling sourcebook features 29 wondrous children's stories from around the world. From the mythic and the fantastic, to the silly and the serious, these timeless tales encourage conflict resolution, compassion, and sensitivity to the Earth and all living things.
