Invite a Storyteller to Your School!

As a learning tool, storytelling encourages students to explore their unique expressiveness and heighten a student’s ability to communicate thoughts and feelings in an articulate and lucid manner. Storytelling also encourages language and reading development and can be integrated into a variety of curriculum areas.

Through telling stories students gain presentation skills, knowledge of their subject, and learn through teaching and sharing with others. A good story not only entertains but is capable of imparting important concepts, attitudes and skills. Storytelling is also a fabulous tool to develop the listening and concentration skills of late developers or children with special needs; as well as to engage and draw their attention in a way that is enjoyable and less stressful for them.

Invite a storyteller to visit your school! Imagine how excited the students and teachers will be to attend an assembly or workshop presented by international storytellers. Here’s your chance to engage professional storytellers, without having to pay an arm and a leg, and get world class programmes.

  3. ENRIQUE PAEZ, Spain

    Meet the Author Session
    The author of the romance “Abdel” offers the possibility of meetings in primary or secondary schools in Singapore with children and/or young readers interested in reading and in Children's Literature. “Abdel” tells through the first person the epic story of a 14 years old child Saharaw (Western Sahara, close to Morocco). After the death of his mother at the hands of the Moroccan army, he travels with his father to Spain, aboard a small boat. In Spain, land of promise, things will not be as easy as they imagined, and finally it ends up with the father in jail and the son Abdel in a shelter.

    ENRIQUE PAEZ will answer questions related to the writer’s craft, gestation and creation of the books, the resources of creativity, the beginnings of writing, the problems of migration, and “Abdel” adventure.


    Breaking Down a Story to Tell
    In this workshop we look at all aspect of developing a story to tell; elements of the story, characterisation, voice, movement, pace and timing, breath and rhythm of the story, the underlying knowledge of the place/animal traits, etc.

    Cultural Identity and Our Stories: Working with Youths
    The teenage years are all about change, confusion and peer pressure. Stories can be used even for difficult age groups like these. This workshop delves into some of the stories and methods used in to reach out to teenagers and youths.


    Poetry in Motion!: Movement, Body Language, and Facial Expressions in Storytelling
    Using the tales of the famous Danish author Hans Christian Andersen, Randel will demonstrate how to use your whole body and face to bring your stories to life.

    Paper and Scissors ROCK!
    Randel will demonstrate the fun of taking a piece of ordinary paper and cutting and folding it into simple, yet amazingly detailed paper sculptures. The projects can be themed around holidays or special units on nature, the circus, fantasy creatures, anything! These projects are great for helping children develop spatial awareness, divergent thinking, and just having a fun arts experience.
