Storytelling

We have been exploring the art of storytelling for a while now. We have critiqued some real story tellers Joy found on YouTube. They were amazing. We soon figured out you have to use your voice, your hands and your body to tell your story.
Joy read us a whole collection of creation stories and it became clear that different people around the world had figured out ways to explain the world around them so we have devised stories that examine our world like " why do animals have skin? Why are bananas yellow? And how do clouds stay in the sky?
Here are our story prompts. Because we are storytellers we are learning our stories off by heart rather than writing them out. These picture prompts will help us remember what we need to include!
Ask us to give you a demo and help us with out gestures and expressions. Only 3 more school days until camp!

  1. Storytelling can be tricky, James's Nanny is a good storyteller, she is a librarian, I wonder if she has any advice?

  3. What a cool idea using story prompts and trying to tell your story orally. That is a pretty big challenge but I'm sure you're all up to it. Thanks for sharing the image as I can see clearly what they look like. I wonder how many parents will get to hear these at home?
