The new series of DVDs, ‘Stories from Around the World’, by the makers of the award winning ‘Story Spinner’ stories, brings the best International storytellers and stories right into your classroom.
This creates a unique opportunity to inspire your children’s imaginations. Watch and enjoy the stories together and instill in them a love of language and diverse cultural appreciation that will last a lifetime.
Every story is told to the camera. There are no gimmicks, pictures or sound effects; the storyteller simply engages with the class through the expressive use of words, gestures and facial expressions. This is the true power of oral storytelling – to let the words paint rich pictures in the children’s minds.
Teachers have found this to be an invaluable tool in engaging children in a different text type, encouraging discussion, developing speaking and listening skills and a great motivation for reading and writing, even in the early years. Every story offers opportunities for literacy, drama, art, citizenship and other creative activities across the curriculum.
One DVD each for Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
They are £99 each or all 3 for £249 plus VAT.
