Playful storytelling and oral literacy

Facilitator: Evelyn Davis

Oral story telling strengthens relationships, fosters oral literacy (which is the foundation of written literacy) empowering children to find their own voices as storytellers as well.

I will introduce different ways to tell stories, including table top puppets, dramatic play, theatre, play-dough, book-making and the arts. And more.

 I offer safe, fun, and practical experiences that will hopefully inspire you to play with storytelling in a variety of ways, in a variety of contexts in a normal day, at a centre or at home. 

This workshop offers a demonstration of oral storytelling, playful interactive experiences that support you to find your own storytelling voice, and a power point replete with inspiring images of oral storytelling and ways to make simple resources.
