Workshop Description

Story Baskets - The Power of Story Telling

In a world were we are constantly rushed, story telling is almost a lost art. In today’s electronic age children are losing their creative thinking and their ability of creating images in their mind. However, storytelling is one of the traditional ways to teach our children lessons about life. Through story telling children develop listening skills, patience, problem solving, creative thinking, and many more skills used in their early years development. Story Baskets are created to expose children to various ways of learning and are a hands-on approach to education. 

Story Baskets are meant to help children thrive, promote language development, develop problem-solving skills, develop creative thinking, develop imagination, and improve public speech. Story Baskets are a welcome addition to any evironment. 

Story Baskets are benneficial to the children as well to the eductaors. Join me in this session of Story Baskets to learn ways of creating and using Story Baskets.
