Re-Tell Me a Story

Teaching Artist: Sherry Norfolk

In each thirty minute residency session, children will hear and actively participate in a variety of curriculum-themed stories that strengthen their listening skills and stretch their attention spans – AND within each session, children will dramatize and re-tell several Mother Goose rhymes, nursery stories and folktales using simple puppets, props, and masks. In the workshop, students will listen to, learn and re-tell rhymes and stories, employing multiple intelligences to learn sequence, story elements, and vocabulary. Also available for virtual residencies and workshops.
