Hear It! Tell It! Learn It!

Teaching Artist: Sherry Norfolk

Listening, speaking, reading and writing are the cornerstones of literacy and all four are combined in this action-packed residency. Students will hear stories and then become storytellers themselves…repeating the stories in large groups, small groups and individually. Putting their knowledge of story structure to work, students will use their phonemic skills to spell out sound effects and recognize vocabulary. Small groups will work together to create storyboards and perform stories in a classroom Storytelling Festival on the final day of the residency. Also available for virtual workshops or residencies.
