Storytelling offers a natural way to nurture children’s listening and language skills through shared listening experiences, and an effective way of creating a classroom community while strengthening the bond between teacher and student.
Storytelling Just For Primaries offers a variety of interactive programs where tellers share echoes, chants, partner rhymes, finger plays and call and response stories, with young children, inspiring all to take and tell these stories. And make up their own!
