What happens a master storyteller performs Finger Fables?
Squiggly squirmers are taken into the tale by hand.
They get to turn their fingers into racing rabbits, lions and turtles, and bears. (Oh My!)
“Finger Fables” engage children to listen, follow along, and have fabulous fun. They learn kinetically to actively listen, retell, and reenact. Studies prove storytelling improves understanding, reading, and writing. Selections span Aesop to Anansi, (the original spiderman) to Margaret Wise Brown, or Leo Leoni. You can count on this master storyteller to find a fable for your students.
Ask for your favorite Aesop Fable, or go with “The Ginger Bread Man” "Barkface & Rootnose” “Big Fish Small Pond” “Runaway Bunny,” and more.
